Day 68

Weight- 263lbs

I woke up this morning and went to the doctor to see about a problem I have been having for quite awhile now and have just been living with it because it didn't bother me that much. My throat pops in and out of place occasionally. It is kind of an off and on problem that has been more on then off lately. The doctor really had never seen this before so he referred me to a ENT specialist. So I will go to that appointment tomorrow hopefully he will know what is going on. They took my blood pressure (which was a little high the last time I took it when I finished my last challenge) I was at 141/86 I think which she said was pretty good. She also took my pulse and said I had a slow heart beat which I took as a good thing.

After my doctors appointment I went to the gym and spent 20 minutes on the stair mill had a really good workout. It was the type of cardio workout where you want to quit after 5 minutes and just push through it. After the gym I went to Sam's to stock up on some food, then back home to get ready for work.

Work went by pretty quick which was nice. I got in my car after work and noticed that a couple of CD cases sitting on my passenger seat (not where I left them.) I thought it was kind of odd but just thought my room mate who also works at the Mart must have been looking for something of his he left in my car. So I gave him a call he said he wasn't in my car I immediately looked down and noticed my CD players face plate was missing. The last week or so I hadn't been locking my car because it the door locks got stuck again. Tuesday I picked up new locks that I was going to change out tomorrow. One day too late, oh well. I was really mad driving home with no music just made it worse. I wished I had gone out to my car for lunch and caught the person who did it. Thinking about it just made me angrier. So I decided to say a couple of prayers for the person, because he obviously is troubled and doesn't have a very good life. Whether the prayers help him or not they helped me cool down. The funny thing is I had my locks sitting on the passenger seat if he would have stolen those he could have gotten $40 bucks or so from them on Ebay.

Long day tomorrow so I better hit the hay!

Day 66


Today went well at work sales have been pretty good the end of this month. After work we went to Rugby it started raining and there was some lightning so we headed for shelter and waited till it passed. After it passed we went back to rucking drills. Dave and I went against each other and I squared up and lowered my shoulder as he made contact hit heads and I split my ear open. Really it was my fault more than his I just need to learn how to take a hit, it is different than football without helmets. So that was the end of practice for me. I went to the ER and had it glued up also got my tetanus shot updated. It wasn't bad just can't have any contact for a week which sucks. Now I am cooking for tomorrow and doing a little homework before bed.

Day 61


This morning I went to the gym and do my LBW things got shifted around this week because yesterday I was just too tired to do my LBW. So tomorrow I will do my UBW and Saturday I will do Cardio. I am very excited to see my weight continue to drop. I can't wait to see what my BF % is at. I really hope by the end of this 12 weeks I am under 20% we will see. Work was work I just really have a tough time on Thursdays. I have a lot to do tomorrow cleaning bills errands etc. Tomorrow night we will go out for my sister-in-laws birthday so it will be good to see everyone.

Had another pretty good day at work. After work Dave and I went to Rugby practice it went pretty well I am learning but still have alot to learn. I am going to go to a Rugby clinic with Dave here in Omaha there will be some great coaches so I should learn alot. There will be a guy there from the New Zeland All Blacks which is the equivalent of learning football from a former Green Bay Packer. Just got my grades back from my last class another A things are going well as I work toward that 4.0.

Day 58

Weight 267lbs

This morning I went to work which went pretty well, I had a good day sales wise. After work I stopped by complete nutrition and got another case of Myoplex turns out they sell it a little cheaper than DPS nutrition online, got it for $70 instead of $73 and shipping. After that I went to the gym and did my cardio then got stuck in the locker room for awhile because of Tornado warning. After that I went to Sam's and picked up some chicken and salmon. Overall an uneventful day, but fairly productive.

Day 56

Weight- 262lbs

This morning I woke up early to go do a stadium workout w/ Jon unfortunately the UNO's football team was using the field so we decided to go after climbing. I had a tough time on the climbing wall today I was trying a one of the harder routes that I tried last week and didn't make it too far. Jon was right I really focus to much on my hands and not enough on my feet, it is a learn process I suppose. after the "real" climbing Jon and I tried to jump up and grab on to the "Dynamo" Basically it is a hold near the floor that you try to jump off of and reach a hold that is about 10 feet up the wall. I couldn't do it on the run but was able to do it by standing at the bottom of the wall and jumping up off the hold. Then we had a little chin up contest off of the hold. First I did 3 then Jon did 13 (show off). One of the girls that worked there was taunting me to do 5 so I tried again and was able to squeeze out 5. I honestly didn't know if I could do one unassisted chin up let alone 5 so that was a pretty nice surprise.

After the climbing we headed to the stadium and did our workout it was pretty intense my legs were killing after my LBW yesterday. This is what it consisted of.

25x push ups
2x High steps up the stadium stairs
1x lunges 30yds
20x dips on a bleacher
30sec front planks
5x tire flips
3x 30yard side shuffle
30yrds reverse lunges
2x sprint stadium stairs
1x 100 yard sprint
then we did it again.

I was dead but felt so good after a shower. After my shower and a quick Myoplex my roommate and I went around looking for a sponsor for our Rugby team. Sounds like the Marleybone is interested so that is great news with our season starting in 3 weeks.

Day 55

Weight- 263lbs

Today was kind of a lazy day for me. I went to the gym and had a great LBW I almost got to the point of failure on the hip sled. I think it is a mental block for me. I know I can get to that point but I don't want to land on my butt on the squat rack. After that I shot some hoops and went to the pool for awhile. Tomorrow is my free day but I plan on doing a stadium workout and climbing. I am also going to eat a little cleaner on my free days as well.
