Hi guys. Sorry I dropped out of the thread for a while. The issue with my sore elbow has been keeping me away from the gym and I've been going for runs most days to keep up with my cardio. I guess I felt it was getting a little redundant to just keep posting "went for another run today". I did get back to the gym this week on Wednesday and worked out my bis, back and shoulders for the first time in almost two months. It's amazing how sore you'll be if and when you work out after taking almost two months off. The issue with my elbow hasn't really gone away but I'm just going to have to try to work through it as I can't stay away from the weights forever. I can't afford to see a doctor about it so for now it's something I'm just going to have to deal with.
The plan for today is to get to the gym for some cardio and an ab workout. Hopefully I can get that done before football starts at 1:00.
Kettle Chips are the best. I'm still in. But I've been away for a week and haven't done anything so i'm all kind of messed up with my routine. Got to get back into it because it seems to be working pretty well. Fitness is something where you can really see progress. I'll restart tomorrow.
Jalapeno flavored kettle chips are my addiction. Especially with some spicy hummus and/or cheese dip. I need to stop letting myself cheat with shit like that so much though. Despite the fact that I am getting exercise consistently, I have been gaining a lot of weight lately. I'm over 190 again now and my target is 180. A year ago I was at 180 and was in the best shape of my life. I looked better than I did in high school. Now my abs are slowly disappearing and my love handles are looking a lot more handle-like. My diet and my penchant for junk food is the problem. As many of you may know from reading my other posts, I have been extremely depressed lately and I tend to be something of an emotional eater. I've got to get that shit turned around soon, because I don't want to gain any more weight. That will only make me even more depressed. Of course the Holidays are coming up and that's not going to help any. Ugh.... the fucking holidays.
