I put the dirt bike away and I am back to focusing all my efforts to bodybiulding again, I have gained some fat, and I know I lost some strength
but it was sooooo cool, the bike is awsome but I let my training slip.

so for a plan? what should I do
I think I will be using DC or "Doggcrap" training
I read some articles on it and it seems interesting

as for a diet
monday-thursday I will have maintenence cals approx. 2000 cals
friday and saterday will be slightly above maint. approx. 2500 cals
and sunday will be a freeday 12,000 cals :burger:

I will try to be a good journal guy and keep up with it everyday

LBM:139lbs :cry:
fat:39.5lbs :cry:

diet:
well today wasnt saposed to be my start day but I couldnt wait
my eating today was bad, very poor food choices, and way overboard
but its ok for now, tomorrow it gets strict, Ive got to focus on getting 5-6 meals, and make better choices, after that I will tweek it from time to time, but for now I need to build the habit of eating the multiple meals

training:

Delts

DB press 70x15x1
not bad I was suprised at how much difference using a s-l-o-w tempo can make

Delt raise side 30x15x1
exelent finnisher for delts, again nice and s-l-o-w

Bicep

db curl 50x15x1
not to be confusing but I count both arms together so it was with 25 lb dbs

BB curl 70x15x1
nice the pump was cool

Tricep

tricep pressdowns 50x15x2
nice again the tempo was slow and it was great


After notes

well after seeing the bodyfat results I feel terrible :cry:
but I did this to myself I have no one else to blame
the dirt bike was a blessing and a curse
I should not have let it side track me like that and I
shouldnt have let myself go, I knew it was happening but
kept thinking "well I will workout this week" but it never happened
damn
anyhoo Im not going to dwell on it
Im gonna use it to push myself hard
stick to the plan focus on the goal

kinda threw a wrench in the monkey works but we sold our home and are just starting to pack, I am gonna keep posting till I have to pack the computer, but I might have to push the pause button on the HST workouts tilnl I get set up at the new house, the good thing is I am going to have a HUGE gym room and room for new equipment, but everything s crazy right now, when I get set up again I will restart the 15's cycle and go for broke
I cant wait till the moving/packing thing is done

update:
bad things happened, the guy buying our house didnt get his financing, so we lost the house we wanted, all the paperwork and the deposits and stuff down the tube, me and the mrs are out $1550.00 , it stinks, we had our hearts set on that house, it was perfect in every way for us, we are both really heartbroken over it, so Im goig to be here for a few, so Im gonna plan a small workout and keep with it untill we find another buyer and we are gonna need to keep an eye out for a new house, my wife took it the hardest she really loved that house, it just goes to show ya good things dont happen to good people, good people get victimized and used, at least that is how I feel now, we deserved that house, it was to be a new start for us both,
gone
anyhoo
starting sunday night I will be posting workouts again

captain piddles
08-11-2005, 11:29 AM
UPDATE:
well I started doing small dumbell workouts just havent been logging them
which is ok cause everything is still crazy, we got a call from our real estate
lady and there is another couple thats interested in the house, so we have
been cleaning and shining everything waiting for the showing, if they make a
bid than we wont be losing the money or the new house, so we got our
fingers crossed and are hoping for the best, I want to set up my new gym
room in the basement of the new home and get going, the dumbell workouts
are good but not enough for me, I need my big toys

I have the next two days off from work so I might start the routine a little early maybe I will start with 45 min. on the treadmill and do an upper workout the next day, its still up in the air but I am going to decide before tomorrow, Anyway, work was funny, we got a transgendered inmate in processing and there was a little confusion as to where to place them, at first everyone was under the assumption it was a girl, she/he was that convincing, it wasnít until the strip search we discovered her/his secret :omg: , I will admit that the opportunity was there for a lot of jokes and such but I was amazed at the professionalism of my coworkers, the night itself was uneventful, which is good and bad at the same time, it makes time drag on by.

Iíve been keeping calories and carbs low but not "Atkins" low, I have a lot of stored fat to burn so I figure 1500-1800 cals is good and I try to keep the carbs under 150-200 grams, I realize I have been stress eating at work, after wrestling Inmates I feed my face, I have to break that habit

Anyway itís my Friday so I have to run
Till tomorrow
:thumbup:

well I wanted to get a head start but my dog ralphie kept me from it, he got real sick and was barfing up some brown rubbery material, something he ate.
so me and the Mrs. were running around trying to find out what it was he got into to see if we should take him to the vet or not, we ended up not finding anything, but he is doing a little bit better, he is still barfing but not as frequent or as much as before, if in a day or two he is still hurling we will take him in, but I think by judging his behavior he should be ok
anyway tomorrow is the first day of the 12 week run
Iím looking at 45min to an hour on the treadmill @ 3.0 to 4.0 Mph
shouldnít be too bad

We shall see
Anyhoo I am off to work, I hope its a quiet night but its a Saturday night so it could be balls to the wall, I will post how my nights go but I will be vague due to the privacy issue, like the beginning to the old show dragnet
Anyhoo got to get going

Well I hit the treadmill for 45 min, wasnít bad I have a TV and DVD player set up so I donít get bored, my feet were feeling it more than my legs
But I am happy I did it,

tomorrow is lower body day

Work was bad last night, we had an inmate repeatedly stab another inmate in the face with a pen, it was nasty, now they are both in the hole, the victim only spent a little time in medical and the other will be picking up new charges, it sucks because I have been talking to and working with the inmate who stabbed the guy, it seemed like he was going to try to do things right, so I was surprised when he did it, it was kind of a shock, but then again he wasnít there for his good behavior he was there cause he was a screw up

Sometimes when you talk sense to these guys you hope they hear it but most of the time you might as well be talking to a brick wall, but you cannot stop trying because every once in a while one of them gets it and learns, and when they get released you never see them again, the others are frequent fliers, they commit the same crimes over and over and over and end up getting caught over and over and over
Its crazy

Just getting ready to head out to work, hopefully I will have a quiet night
Anyhoo tomorrow is the first lower body workout in the 13 week run, I am looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time, I know I am going to be looking at major loss of strength from all my previous workouts, it sucks how much I've let myself go but I got to face the music and do my best, maybe it wont be so bad. Knowing me its probably worse but what can you do?

All I can do is put my best foot forward and take the first step

Anyhoo enough for now I got to go

leg day

1) squat 100x12 135x10 135x12 135x12 155x8 185x6

started low and worked my way up, I was a little awkward at first
but I was getting into it at the end

2) leg extentions 75x12 75x12 75x12 100x10 133x8 145x6

again started low and worked up

3) calf raise 135x12 135x12 155x12 180x10 200x8 225x6

nice sets, got a good stretch between sets

4) leg curl 50x12 50x12 50x12 55x10 60x8 65x6

I could have gone heavier

time: approx 35 min


notes:
really wasnít that bad of a workout I could have gone heavier on some of the exercises but all in all it was good, I was tired when I got in this morning, work was busy, not crazy like the other night but it was scrambling to get court papers together for the morning transports and notifying the inmates who had court to get ready, but there were no incidences to tell about
