Working out kicks my ass but I like it

So our working out hasn't gone as planned. We did really well for a couple of weeks and then with his overtime it got all screwed up. We're going to start again today. I'm not going to put weight amounts on here, not that anyone is reading it but still, but I'll say that for one day I got past a certain number and was very happy and excited. But the very next day I went back up a pound. Luckily I've been holding steady there but I really want to get back below it.

Ok, fine, let's just say the number is somewhere in the 170's. I have exactly one month before my family reunion and if I could lose just ten pounds I'll be very very happy. It won't be what I was down to last year but it'll be close and I'll still look better and feel much more happy with myself.

So I take Poydras out this morning first thing when I got up as usual. It's before I've gone to the bathroom let alone put in my contacts. So I'm standing in the doorway telling him to go break and he's just standing there sniffing away at the porch and the railing. Finally, after much prodding, he goes down the steps and on to the grass & I'm thinking, yippee I'm gonna be able to pee soon. But then he keeps walking and all of a sudden stops and starts sniffing at this brown blob in the grass. I squint and slowly this dead bird comes into semi-view. UGH!!! I have to pull on his leash several times telling him to get away before he finally does. The more I looked at it though the more I started to think it might've been a rat instead. So later after getting ready for work & walking out the door I look at it and sure enough it's a bird.


I had HDT get rid of the bird last night after we came home from working out. Which oh my God I was beat. During the last set of bench presses I couldn't lift the weights without his help, kicked my ass. But I felt good afterward that's for sure. Feeling like I'm accomplishing something out of it, I just gotta keep us on track. He suggested coming back after work today but there's a group of us from work going out afterward for dinner and drinks so won't be able to. But definitely will get back to it tomorrow.

We went light on dinner and only had a baked potato. I took the bigger one because I was starving before working out but I guess drinking the two EAS drinks filled me up more than I thought because I couldn't finish it. So I'm thinking we'll split one and then also have asparagus with it next time. Pretty much that's what we'll be doing on workout days, something really light like that. The drinks we're having before and after the workout provide our protein that's needed for building the muscles so we're good there. Not that having a chicken breast every now and then would hurt.

My arms and shoulders are pretty tired today but in a really good way. They're not sore, just tired, if that makes sense. My back is a little sore but that's good too.

The bad thing is is that one of my coworkers brought in donut holes and every time I passed them I grabbed one or two. Bad, just bad. And then going out for lunch although I had a pretty healthy one actually. Grilled chicken with roasted potatoes and grilled veggies. Not sure what the veggies were, I think zucchini (green & yellow) it was pretty tasteless really so I ate almost al of the pieces. And then dinner and drinks with everyone. UGH!
