    I'm still in it (to win it)!!!!

    I just haven't been posting lately, sorry. (I've been super busy trying to switch careers. Networking is a very slow and time-consuming process when you don't know anyone in the field you're trying to switch to. LinkedIn is useful, though.)

    I've been keeping track offline, though, and will post a super mega update soon! I used a couple of cheat days over the holidays, then got sick, which I don't think should count as cheating. And up until just before Christmas, I was still keeping up... So I request my green name back please!

    I've been terrible! School has started and I got behind!

    However, our membership to the YMCA shall be renewed soon, and I too shall begin anew! Now I just have to find my goddamn ipod.

    On the bright side- I have discovered push ups are an excellent way to let out my anger. That's all.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    So there I am at the gym for some 3 months. I finally have an appraisal to figure out what routine I should be doing.

    I do the appraisal in 30 mins. that's 10x3 of 9 different kinds of training and find myself putting up the weights from abs 30 to 70kg, arms 70 to 110kg and legs 140 to 210kg respectively. then I get bored and do the whole gym for fun. and the cardio for 40 mins.

    I guess I'm still "in this" whatever this is. Don't really care about winning anything so I just started to not bother, since Zoom seemed MIA.

    However, my goals have switched seeing how my initial quest of simply "weight gain" is nebulous a huge pain in the ass to monitor, so now I've just sort of moved on to max goals in putting up weight. 315lbs in all complex lifts [bench/squat/deadlift] in 6 months, reps of 8-10 in a year. I'm told that's doable.

    Right now my maxes are 245/285/285 respectively, so with squat and deadlift I should hit that soon, bench is another matter entirely. I FINALLY don't have to use grandma weights when doing shoulder work and so far that has really helped.

    3/3 last week. 1/3 this week. Retrying attempts to get diet on schedule...as I want to at least have a nice finish to this. This Challenge has at least proven to me that indeed I can workout regularly, but that I suck at diets and eating more.

    Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much, super busy these days! I'm also studying for the GMAT, and have only allowed myself 3 weeks to prepare with possibly unrealistic hopes of a high score <bites nails>....

    OK, as promised, below is my mega-update. (I knew it would be difficult to get back into it after Christmas, but holy sh* wow, my times were super slow first week back, just getting back into the swing of it now. Although I also got sick at Christmas and spent a couple of days in bed, so that probably made it worse.)

    Last time I posted was for the week ending 11/13. Since then, I've been keeping track on my laptop, but not updating here, so here goes:

    CF = CrossFit workout at the gym, timed
    rds = number of rounds in workout of the day
    wod = workout of the day
    steps = number of stair steps, running up and back down counts as 1
    amrap = as many rounds as possible in given time limit
    c2b = chest to bar pull-ups (as opposed to the usual chin above bar)
    kb = kettle bell
    DL = dead lifts

    So over the holidays, I used up 2 more cheat days. I don't remember whether I had used 1 or 2 prior to that, but we can say I used 2, so I believe that puts me at 4 total cheat days used so far, 6 remaining. (My stated goal was 3 CrossFit workouts per week, and I'm allowing myself to substitute home workouts instead when there are scheduling problems.)

    I can't believe how hard it was to get back into it after the holidays, but it was worth the struggle the first week back, I'm pretty much back to where I was. I also got some new personal records, including 225 lb one-rep max dead lift. I'm still using the band for pull-ups and still can't quite even do one pull-up without the band, but I'm almost there. I tried it with the trainer's help, and she said she hardly helped me at all. I'll make it my goal to get one pull-up with no assistance before March.
