    I posted a pic of a black toe a while back. Dropped a dumbbell and it bounced on my toe.

    I will save u the boring story. Lost 40 lbs after joining here. Over trained, lots of injuries and lots of surgeries. Lots of surgeries. The last time I felt good about my body was in August/sept 2012 right b4 I had my last 5 surgeries including rotator cuff/bicep and non arthroscopic ankle.

    -image-1887563954.jpg
    i want this back and more. I just haven't stay healthy long enough to make any more progress. I am on another hiatus,hopefully only for another 2 months of only walking. Boring.

    So putting a positive spin on this, I will be plotting my lifting routine since I never really did much other then the group fitness workouts at the gym which isn't enough for me anymore.

    Honestly. Alot of females would luv to have my figure but I am not satisfied. Booty too small and waist too thick imho. I can figure out the arms and the legs. It's the genetically given midsection and lack of hips that drive me bananas. I have gear set aside waiting for the right time. I need to cut first. It's harder when I am limited in working out.

    I had no idea what you've been through. Sounds like a a real sh*t ride.. Sorry.

    You're still in there which is important. You haven't let it consume you, which I'm sure has been challenging.

    Goals are in place and you know what you want. You're being careful with yourself and gaining strength. Great to hear.

    I'll be following. Keep it up and looking forward to seeing your progress!!

    90 minutes on treadmill some 650 calories if believe the counter. It was easier today ppl watching all the New Years resolution crowd.

    60% of New Years resolutions are forgotten after 2 weeks. Sadly. Most ppl want to get healthy. Stop smoking, lose weight. Kinda sad.

    90 minutes nice work. I like the eliptical over the tmill (particularly when I'm bulking) as its easier on the knees/hips.

    I didn't workout yesterday and then spent too much time in the lounge and then gets in trouble.bad girly. Bad girly. LoL

    I am tread-milling it after work tonight, tomorrow.
    And I gained 5ish pounds in the last several weeks that I am stripping off. Gain quickly. Loose quickly. Those pounds are just from drinking too much champagne and wine.

    I have been doing alot of thinking about what diet strategy I should be using. Reading others logs and the stickies. I am thinking more and more about carb cycling. Thinking. I am far from being a lazy person just to get that out there lol carb cycling seems to take more effort. I am looking forward to being released for more then just walking.

    I have been getting inspired by Marcus diary. Those guys are in the game for something totally different but they sure do work hard and have the same but different struggles. Kinda comforting to know that I am not alone.

    I've toyed with the carb loading idea. maybe someday if I hit plateau. Do what you can for now. I lost a bunch of weight just walking. Been doing the Marcus HIT style lifting for a while myself. I really love it.

    You are not alone.

    First time I EVER worked out that late but I have to get rid of the holiday indiscretions - quickly.

    I am always more hungry on every Monday bc I cheat on weekends. I used to have my cheat meal during the week and need to go back to that strategy. There's just more opportunity for me eat less clean on the weekend.

    Off to the gym again. More work to be done.

    I'm starving in the morning if I workout late. It also seems like if I eat late (whether I workout or not) I'm more hungry in the morning.. weird.

    Yes. I am actually taking today off but will be back tomorrow. Altho it's hard to tie up a treadmill for 90 minutes on Monday in January. The gym is soooooooo crowded in Jan and most busy on Monday.

    Watching diet and collected enuff courage to weigh myself. The holiday # almost gone and within striking distance. Still only treadmill which is killing me.

    Why is that the really smelly guys show up next to me in the rows and rows and rows of treadmills. Empty treadmills.

    Great to hear GGR you will get there.

    Youtube, Carl Cox, Laidback Luke and have a listen to their music. If that fails, Metallica, Pantera are always good work out options lol
