I had one of these when I got into the gym earlier this year, but lost the website in Spring. I realized that having an online Log is motivating in filling out the next day for others to see.

About me : I grew up in the country and was always the size of the kids 2 grades ahead of me. When I was 12, I hit 200lbs, but was lean with a lot of muscle. During highschool, I evened out at 220. Then, I joined the Navy where I gained some more weight -- 230lbs. After that, I played football at a small college in VA -- 250lbs. After a few years, I got out of athletics and dated a boring girl. We sat around and watched TV all the time -- 270lbs. Luckily, I played Softball in the hot summers, evening out in the 260s up until 2008.

2008 is where my body took a drastic turn. I'm a writer, and spend upwards of 16 hours a day writing (not every day). The only 'exercise' I got was walking to the kitchen, or the bathroom. During a Vacation, I couldn't walk too long, was breathing heavy, and having heart pains -- 290lbs. After that vacation, I decided to lose the weight. I started a walking program of 6 miles every few days. Shot down to 270 really quick. But, one day, I decided to go on a 20 mile hike -- Tore a ligament in the knee. Surgery, more weight back on. Just couldn't take it.

2009, my brother in law recommended me to a local gym. Worked out 2 days a week for 3 months. Then had a weird work schedule, and couldn't do it as much. Fell away until December 2009. I was so determined to lose this weight, I started going 5 days a week. Lost 350g a day during December -- THEN CHRISTMAS. Gained weight again, and felt crappy again. Workout out from Jan to Jun, then had to stop because of Elbow tendinitis, and a pulled glute muscle.

Vacation and Recovery time is OVER. Fast Forward til NOW. I'm finally ready to get back into the gym. 4 Days on, 1 day off, continuous until I wimp out.

I hope to update daily with my workout, and my diet.

Found your journal. Tough love coming...

It's no wonder you burn out quickly, that routine would burn out most people. I'm not going to tell you how you should be training, you didn't ask me. However, I feel the need to at least speak up and tell you that routine is lightyears ahead of where you need to be right now. But I do wish you luck and hope you realize your goals.

By the way, my wife's family is from Norway, near Oslo.

Hey Off Road, thanks for checking out my journal.

I agree with what you're saying. It's mainly my stubborness to hit the same intensity (minus 5-10kg) that I used to work out at. This is actually a smaller version of my workout I was doing earlier this year. I swapped Biceps with Triceps on the days though. I've been fatigued/over-trained before. If I start feeling it, I stop for a few days. I'd like to eat more, but can't find time. And I need to learn proper breathing techniques for curling -- as I run out of breath pretty quickly. I'll probably experiment with some other things - love working with Kettlebells. The main goal is to lose bodyfat.

Around Oslo? We live all the way on the west coast by the Nordfjord.

Ya, I can't remember the name of the town. But Oslo is about the only town in Norway that I can pronounce :)
