well the weather was crappy last weekend, got all the parts to start working on the jeep/bmw/snapper/house...but didn't get a lot done.

i did sharpen the blade of the snapper, changed its oil, put on a new belt and cut most of the grass right before i went to Raleigh for conferences. 

this weekend looks much better weather.  jeep does have a new air filter, the old one looked like a lung from a smoker of 200 years...very black and filthy. 

i'll try to remember pictures,  cause it really spices up the blog =P

so hopefully oil change for the jeep.  start on the radiant barrier in the attic, install the chain locks on the front and back door.  still find time to have fun with family.  sounds like good weekend to me

alright this will be a big one, kinda...maybe

anyways, i took some pictures and put them beside of ones i had from 4-5 weeks ago. 

so after is first then the before pic.  i wasn't sucking in my gut and i think i had the same posture.  so there some good motivation, i still don't see it when i look down, but if i see it in pics then it helps a lot!

measurements, didn't change much, i gained a .25in on my bicep.  gained like 2in on my chest. 

everything else was unchanged for the most part, i think my measurement skills are to be questioned.  i don't think i take them consistantly enough yet.  i also took my neck and it is 16.5.

weight went to 226 today, so 3 pounds different than last week, still up 1 pound from two weeks, but i think i'm loosing fat and gaining muscle, so who cares what the scale says.

thats all i got for now, maybe more stuff over the weekend if the weather is alright

alright, so the 48 hour fast didn't make it, got to 24/25 hours and felt very hungry, so i ate some deer burgers and squash and a big salad.  also a small bowl of sugar free pudding made with half and half and some whipped cream on top, very yummy!

so looks like might be adding a "building a playset" to my list of things i'll post up here.  should be well worth it!  DD will love the slide and climbing and the swings, those are her favorites  :)

still here, going to be doing some different stuff up here soon.

little update, i was a 4 pounds as of friday, though measurements didn't really move, so i'm still keeping muscle...thinking my body is just getting used to the new nutrition and is building different things/healing.  we'll see what happens this friday.  tonight i'm going to eat a normal dinner, then i'm going to give a 48 hour fast a try.  won't eat again til wednesday dinner.  will update on how i feel and if i'll do it agian, probably just go back to skipping two meals after this week, but i'm curious.

alright, so whats going to be showing up here?  well i'm going to clean up and redo my entertainment setup.  right now its a computer just laying in a standup cabinet.  so i'm going to clean up the cables, and move some shelves around, as right now i have two printers there (laser and color) and one is on top of the case.  will try and move it inside the cabinet and put a runner on the wall for the cables running for antenna and internet.

also will be trying to clean up our back room (freezer room) and prepare it for use as a work room for car parts and a little storage, not like it is now.

I'll be fixing my bicycle (bent the rear wheel when i was closer to 270's and haven't done anything sense.  so once i can get it straight or buy a used wheel, i will start looking for a bike for DW.

next up (maybe the weekend) i will be doing Stage 0 on the bmw and the jeep.  for those that don't know, stage 0 represents getting the car to "factory" type specs, fresh fluids all around, new belts if needed, and any other moving part will be inspected.  so i'll be doing that in the back yard.  will take pics and update on better MPG, HP, whatever are bonus's...

last but not least.  bought a little riding mower.  an older (80's) snapper RER (rear engine rider) 30" cut.  it only needed a belt to work properly.  bought it and put it on wrong so after half the yard is cut, it breaks.  so i'll get a new belt this week, also going to change the oil on it, new spark plug (or clean up the one in it if thats all it needs) and grease up moving parts.  will also take the blade off and sharpen it.  should be a good little mower.  maybe next year i'll start a light restore process on it.

well i'm still here, just don't update everyday this week because its been a busy week. 

but lets start off with some truth, didn't do my body weight exercises, so yesterday i did hit the gym and hit it hard, about 30 mins of hard work out...

i add squats/military press/rows/free weight curls

i even went up a little on my bench and back to 190 on lateral pull downs...

squat was weak...only 100 pounds, guess i had my expectations high

well tomorrow is another weigh in day and measure day...we'll see you guys then!

friday, measure and weight

rb - 14.5
rf - 12.25
lb - 14
lf - 12
rt - 25
rc - 17
lt - 24
lc - 16.75
bb - 41
ch - 45

ok so theres my measurements for this friday, also I weighed 226 this morning!  feeling great, great dinner after work, got lots finished at work, feeling great!

tomorrow will be body weight work out day...so looking forward to busting my buns...

so looking at my other measurements, looks like I've dropped an inch for my chest, my waist at the belly button...and gains here and there (little gains) on my arms and legs...so this is great!  just what i'm wanting

for the weights i'll just use the big number, its easier to remember than the two number system on the machines and it might be changing as the college is upgrading to a new weight room...

Bench - 156
Curls - 100 first set and 90 the last two
tricep extension - 50
Lat. Pull down - 190 first 2 sets and 170 the last set
leg press and calf extensions - 551

thats pretty much my work out as of right now, i keep finding a better rhythm about it and i have to increase weights now to get to the same muscle failure as my first work out, so i'm liking it very much. will get measurements tonight after work
