I got my swell on yesterday, feels good and sore today. And the windstorm has died down so I can run outside today instead of jumping around like a jackass in my living room.

Also, switched to a new whey protein. Optimum Nutrition's Chocolate. It blows chunks compared to the Muscle Milk Cookies-n-Cream. But not too bad and pretty good shaken with milk. It's kind of creamy. We got Cookies-n-Cream Casein for night time, but I'm not going to take it because I don't want to get jacked.

I just got a jug of ON Double Rich Chocolate Whey Isolates, but I really like it.

I like the chocolate one too, but I really really liked the other brand I had. It's good when I shake it up really well, it gets frothy and creamy. :lol:
Will try double chocolate next.

Pro Tip: Use a bar shaker to mix your protein shakes.

I put a banana in it (16 oz skim, 2 scoops Chocolate Whey, 1 banana, and a couple ice cubes), so I have to use the blender.

'cept mine doesn't have a ball in it just a piece that fits in the top to break up the chunks.
Just finished a frothy chocolate shake after my run and yoga. This flavor is growing on me.

Worked bis and tris yesterday, as well as played in a Soccer game. Noice.

I lost 3 pounds in the last 3 weeks. I think it was all gut so that is cool. Still having trouble gaining muscle mass, though. I guess I need to eat more.

What are you eating? Do you take any supplements?

I drop and gain weight like everyday. It's weird. I've been between 120-127 since high school. Except towards the end of trail season when I get pretty jacked I gain a couple lbs.

Anyways, I took the whole weekend off, didn't even yoga. Wish I would have now though. Today I will probably do all 3, cardio, lift, and yoga. I am going back to Philly this week and I know I'm going to have a tough time keeping up with my routine and will probably eat like 3 cheesesteaks and 5 Italian hoagies so I have to power workout right now. :lol:

I eat like food, bruh. Normally like a bowl of cereal for breakfast. A sammich at 10am. Lunch consisting of leftovers at noon. A hard boiled egg when I get home. Dinner consisting of a meat, veggies and salad with a hard boiled egg or two. I also knock out a batch of pico de gallo every week, usually by Thursday. I don't snack. I try to eat fish for supper on workout days.

And I drink the protein shakes after workouts which are 3-4 times per week. Plus I play soccer 1-2 times per week, 40 minute halves. Plus I should be jogging but am not. Plus I should do abs but am not. Plus the occasional pie/cookies/brownies.

Nice job everyone! Drew you should check out this book called The Ab Diet.. I'll send you some stuff when I'm back on the computer. Will have fun in Philthy and will be punishing my body today in preparation of cheesesteak consumption! woot. I love the burn! and my booty yoga is starting to have some nice rounding rewards.

Bad workout today. Totally uninspired. I guess it is better than no workout, though.

Will look for the book. I think I have to accept the fact that I need to consume way more calories and then do cardio and abs. It is the only way.

Rolled my ankle again last night. I heard it crack like someone was cracking their knuckles or back. It it pretty sore today. As if the dirt clump field wasn't bad enough, they didn't cut what grass was there so the ball go caught up and I rolled it. Brilliant.

I'm though, though.

Played for 2 hours with it last night - no problems. You can get it at Dick's or order online at Amazon or something a save a couple bucks. Season starts Sunday. Rest tonight (Halladay and the Flyers on picture-in-picture), hard practice tomorrow morning. I also want to go for a run tomorrow sometime - got the corporate 5k next Thursday. Also lost another pound, now down 20 since 1/1.

I had a good ankle roll a while back. It was a little scary, but it worked out for the better, I think.

Judo was good on Thursday.

Amount of exercise done on vacation = 0 (unless you count 12 oz. curls)
Amount of cheesesteaks/Italian hoagies consumed = a lot

I've got a lot of catching up to do this next week.

Dude, do something other than the Jersey Shore muscles. We'll have to start calling you The Half-Situation.

Played my first match last weekend. Of course, I hurt my good foot so I'm now down to zero healthy feet left one match into the season. That didn't stop me from running the 5k last night though. I went slower than normal to be careful, but had enough in the tank to sprint the final uphill to the line. Came in at 26:40, which I know is pretty slow for 5k, but I think I could have been a minute or so faster if I ran all out the whole way.

I haven't been pumping much iron, lately. Been working on the house, instead. Plus being really sore from soccer doesn't help. However, chest tonight.

I think I have mild plantar faciitis in my foot. Since that is just an inflammation and not a real injury, I'm currently working on pain tolerance more than anything else. In other words, blocking the pain and walking/running/playing normally when I really want to scream in agony, limp around, and self-medicate. It's been OK so far. I've been able to play on it with only a slight decrease in mobility. So, currently, my right ankle is actually injured with structural damage but doesn't bother me one bit and my left foot hurts like hell but isn't really injured. I can't wait until I actually turn 40 next summer to see how badly my body breaks down...

Did chest and back last night with a little sprinting for some interval training. Shoulders and arms tonight. Also currently 8 lbs below my original target playing weight for this season and still losing. Will be ripped by August.

Squats rule. Squats and dead lifts are the easiest way to get big. I'm going to start doing more free weights in my next offseason training cycle. The problem for me is that I don't have a partner and don't heavy lifting with free weights and no spotter is a little bit worrisome to me.

All I do are free weights and I am always alone, in the basement. The only time I have an issue is when I do bench presses. I don't really need a spotter for anything else. Well, the front and back seated barbell presses are a bit iffy at times.
