Kenpo X completed. I've decided there's no way I'm using my final cheat this week. I'll likely need it for the NY meetup.

I did 1.5 hours of walking around today and the X-stretch workout.
No cheats for me this week.

On Friday I tested my bench, I got 100kg for five. Here is a video.I could've worked up to a max but I was by myself and I don't want to die. Not yet anyway.
Today I did some squats. And a whole lot of leg work.I need to take a note book to the gym to record my numbers. Then I'll start posting them. ]
I've also done a few 400 metre sprints this week. Two each time with a two minute interval.
Thanks for sharing the article. I've made a copy of it, as I'll likely need a new routine before too long.
Also, neat seeing you and your gym. Thanks for posting that.
Mashed red potatoes and green beans for lunch. Snacked on some almonds and nutella. Did about a half hour of walking, took the stairs, etc. Something reasonably healthy for dinner, didn't record.
Exercise: 30 min.
Had a yogurt, berry, and granola parfait for breakfast with juice. Mushroom and swiss panini for lunch. Scalloped potatoes and salad (with balsamic vinegar and olive oil) for dinner. Did about 30 min of walking and
15 minutes mixed weights and crunches.
Exercise: 45 min
Egg salad, lettuce, and cucumber sandwich with chips for lunch. Homemade enchiladas (non-vegetarian) for dinner. Snacked on some almonds and dried fruit. Felt a little sick.
Oatmeal with nutella for lunch. Ate some things, but didn't write them down. Drank a lot of odwalla and other fruit juices. Very sick, slept most of the day.
Eating: good, considering
Croissant and chai tea for breakfast. Snacked on a granola bar. Salad with the usual fixins, beans, and a quesadilla with peppers and onions in it. Did a little walking but nothing significant (still feeling under the weather)
Ceaser salad and an odwalla for lunch. Walked around for about an hour. Had frozen yogurt and a sandwich for dinner.
Exercise: 1 hr
A croissant, rice milk, and a little bit of tasty organic yogurt for lunch. Salad and sandwiches with steak, cheese and red peppers for dinner. Creme brulee for dessert.
Exercise: 2 hours and some change
Was sick with the cold for a good part of the week. I'm pretty happy with how I did, considering.
"There's no need to be embarrassed about it, Mr. Spock. It happens to the birds and the bees!"
Wow guys, we only have less than two months left. We've been at this for over 4 months now. Take a moment to think about that.
I'm seriously considering increasing the stakes for the final month, so we can finish strong. What I'm thinking is that for the final 4 weeks, everyone must submit a report (even if it's simple like "I was sick", "I made my goals", or "2 out of 4 workouts complete") or face elimination. I'll be sure to send a PM warning everyone of the change, and remind everyone to submit the report. It won't need to be submitted on time, as long as it gets submitted.
So... if anyone thinks that is a bad idea, please reply or PM me now before I make up my mind.
Anyway, here are the stats for this week. It's good to see more faces.
* Includes those that have reported vacations, injuries, and sickness.
