I've decided to give up drinking for awhile and to really focus more on my diet. I've been slacking big time lately. It's like the weekends are a free for all and I go crazy. Then I feel like crap all weekend and Mondays are really tough.

So, my resolution is to eat far fewer cheats (none if I can help it) and to cut way back on my carbs. I did really well, carb-wise, last week (not including the weekend) and I felt and looked better than I have in awhile.

I am also going to stop skipping workouts during the week. The past two weeks have had 3 rest days and while that's fine every once in awhile, I didn't really need them, so it was just my laziness kicking in.

Somewhat related: I have this huge pet peeve at work (one of many). It is centered around me not eating the numerous cakes/cookies/snacks we constantly have at the office. For every person who has a birthday, I have to get them a birthday cake from a local bakery. For about 6 months now, I have opted out of eating any cake or other sweets that are routinely brought in. It is always a point of discussion at every birthday... "why aren't you eating cake" "b/c I'm trying not to eat as much sugar" "oh sugar is good for you" - blah blah blah. It's annoying and after months of this, I'm sick of it. Okay, rant over:).

Sprints - 200m all out x 4
10 Ring Rows
20 ball sit-ups
10 HSPU progressions
10, 20# DB Swings Workout (scaled):
2-4-6-8-10 of:
55# Deadlift
55# Hang Power Clean

Followed immediately by -

10-8-6-4-2 of:
55# Front Squat
55# Push Press

Time: 10:53
1st set - 3:40
2nd set - 7:13

That second set was really hard. I had to put the barbell down between each exercise and through half of the reps (on most). The first set was really fun and went by fast. I should reverse the sets and see how that feels, whether it's just the fact that I'm already tired that makes the second set feel so tough.

The weather today was absolutely beautiful! I wish every day could be like today:).

The more carbs you eat, the more carbs you want to eat. That has been my experience, anyway.

The office is a Soul Killer! It is a Battle Environment, no doubt.

Yeah, it's the same with me. I eat a zone meal and I don't feel the need to snack or binge; but when I eat something like a plate of pasta, it's like I'm never satisfied... I always want more pasta/more bread, whatever.

haha:) Soul killer. I definitely feel that way sometimes.
