Feeling soreness

Yesterday was the first time in a few months that I saw my trainer and actually did more than just running. I did pushups, sprints, abs etc. Today I am really really sore all over. I wanted to go for a 3 mile run today, but my body is hurting.


Well I just got home from work. This is the time I always struggle not too eat too much. I am soo hungry and I want to snack a lot while I watch tv and wind down. My plan is to just have some cereal and not eat too much more.

Feeling Fat

I know it sounds stupid for a guy. But today they didn't have much too eat at work and I eat ziti, pasta primerava and a taco. I feel really fat right now. I wish I didn't eat it.
On a positive side, I went to the gym earlier today and saw my trainer for an hour. I did pushups and windsprints mostly.

Tuesday Run

Well I didn't want to get out of bed. I finally did about 2:30p.m.. I got a bunch of errons done and then I decided to go for a run. I started running and within the first five minutes I was feeling the pain and wanted to quit. I decided to stick with it and I ran about the distance of a 5K. I felt better afterwards but during it I felt fat and out of shape, it was tough. Its amazing what an extra 5-10lbs does.

Setting my Whys

Well I am at the biggest I have been since I started taking Herbalife about 2 yrs ago. I have gotten lazy and haven't been consistent. My business is hurting because of it also. I called my mentor and coach Rachel today and she is going to help me along again. She asked me to put my Whys for losing weight on a piece of paper. This is what I have so far.
1. Have more energy and vitality
2. Feel healthier
3. To help me reach my goal of running the Boilermaker road race in 65 minutes
4. Look sexy for the women, I am getting soo tired of being single, I miss having a woman in my life

What are your whys?

Weight In

I weighed myself today, 175.2 lbs. I am soo disappointed in myself. I did drink a lot and eat some crap this weekend when my friend was here to visit. I have gained 7lbs in the last month, horrible. I take the best products in the world with Herbalife, on the products I went from 190lbs to 164lbs. I just have to get back into taking them consistenly. Disappointment is my feeling today.

Food for dinner

Had baked macroni, fried asian chicken, carrots, esparagus, mashed potatoes. Not the best but a good mix. Not much to choose from at work.

This past weekend I went to LA for a Herbalife training meeting. Long story short the meeting was very informative and I learned a lot. I got back, and my friend from out of town visited on Sunday and Monday night. We stayed at MGM Grand on the Las Vegas strip. Everything went ok. The food though was too tempting and convenient, it made it very hard for me. I ended up eating a cheesburger and fries, and five beers while at the pool. Then later had two hot dogs and fries and an ice cream cone. At night I had one protein bar which was good and drank a lot. Vegas can be soo tempting.
Today I started off good so far. Had tea and a shake.

Just got back

I went to Orange County, CA this weekend for a Leadership Developement Weekend for Herbalife . I learned a ton of information about the company and the business. I also got renewed energy to continue to work on my weight loss goals and my business goals. I started at 210 lbs, I weight about 173lbs right now. My lowest was 164. My goal is 150lb.
Eat good for the weekend, had lots of tea and shakes.

Well yesterday I did great all the way up to when I got home from work at about 5a.m.. Tired from work and needed a little bit of time to chill before I went to bed. I watched on DVR CSI NY, still confused about the ending. Anyways lately I have been addicted to Wheat Thins, shredded cheese and Ranch Dressing as a snack. I buy whole wheat wheat thins, the part skim milk shredded cheese and low fat ranch dressing. The problem is I eat way too much of it. I start and I can't stop sometimes until I am bloated. I had the whole bag of the shredded cheese, half a can of the ranch dressing and almost a whole box of wheat thins in about one hour, ugh, way too much. I don't even want to look at the scale today.
This morning(for me) 3p.m., I woke up and had a herbalife style pie, just one piece and a cup of tea, so far so good for the day.

Running, Eating

Did a quick 5K run before work. Have a great shake for breakfast at 4p.m., yeah thats breakfast for me, lol. Had a salad for dinner at 10p.m.. Had 2 cups of tea. So far so good for the day.

Weight In

Just weighed in 171.2. Of course after running but still I like to see it.

Running 10K

Well today I got out of work and decided to have a test run of the 10K I am running with my brother in May at El Dorado High School here in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas running team is putting the run on if anyone is interested, its a great course. It was dark starting out at about 5a.m. but about halfway through it started getting light out. I finished about 5 minutes slower than I ran it last year at, so I have some work to do. I haven't eaten anything since getting home, but I tend to like to snack a bit before going to bed. I work 8p.m.-4a.m. so I slept at odd times.

Food for the day

Well woke up at 5p.m.. Had a Herbalife Rice Krispie treat and orange juice. So far so good. Also had a apple fiber drink.

Can't Sleep, Snacking too much

Well I am still up. I can't seem to sleep and now I am probably going to sleep most of the day until I go to work at 8p.m.. Right now its 8:14a.m..
As far as eating goes, I keep snacking on things because I am bored. I had two cheese sticks and two cups of Fat Free milk.

Sleep, Eat, watch movie

My sleep pattern has been very off lately. I work 8p.m.-4a.m. Monday through Friday. For the most part I try to come home and sleep by 6a.m. before the sun rises. However this week was different, I just couldn't fall asleep right away, too much on my mind. So I decided to do things if I couldn't sleep. The only problem was by the time the weekend came, my sleep pattern was so off I slept all day Saturday and Sunday and was up at the odd times that most people aren't. Today Sunday, I slept from 12noon to 10p.m. and now I am wide awake again. I just watched the movie Croupier and eat a rice krispie treat with the Herbalife shake mix I put in it. So far for the night, I have eaten good healthy food. Now I am trying to decide if I can try to force myself to sleep and wake up early or just stay up and do things.

Happy Easter

Yesterday I got out of work and I just couldn't sleep. Therefor I just snacked on ice cream and watched tv. I know terrible. Today I got up and eat an apple pie shake, which was good.
