  1. Weigh-in Wednesday - 235.4. Essentially unchanged. not terrible though considering I had a house warming party this weekend and had another day when I went considerably off plan. I just need to redouble my efforts. I have gotten to Yoga twice per week so far, and I am making progress on pushups (only 36 so far) and pull ups (actually pretty good, did 5/3/2/1, that's great for me).
  2. Weigh-in Wednesday - 235.2 Progress. Within standard fluctuations but hopefully we'll see a trend developing over the next two weeks. Nice to be going in the right direction. I've knocked out my push-ups all three days so far, and my pull ups are actually two sets now - 4 then 3. I'll try to get that higher as I can. Oh, and I went to Yoga on Monday. Small steps so far, but good ones.
  3. The play is "Deathtrap" by Ira Levin. It's a very tightly written thriller. Lots of twists you don't see coming. Witty, fast paced, and well written throughout. I'm playing Clifford, the younger writer. There's a movie version with Michael Cain and Christopher Reeve.
  4. I used to be active here a while ago, and then I stopped. Partly it was just getting busy with other things, partly it was having other goals. I probably haven't been around here for quite some time. I have stayed active (I still run, regularly went to the gym, stuff like that), but things have been back sliding a bit and I need another group to help me with accountability. SO, 1) I moved, and I'm no longer close to a reasonably priced gym. But the big one is 2) I'm in a play that opens in September and I have to lose weight for it. Some of you may remember I'm an actor. Ok who am I kidding
  5. My last challenge is here. I dropped out of the updating, and I dropped the challenge a bit early. I basically lasted until about two weeks from opening, but after that the play plus work took up too much time. It was a great experience though. Here are a couple of photos from my experience being a hero. Hope this works... This is me in regal costume: This is an action shot from rehearsal. I wish I had one from performance.
  6. Ok, I kind of dropped off the last challenge I entered (which was one challenge ago, not the most recent one). But I DID like the motivation, and I really did kick ass pretty much in my last show. I'll post some pictures of me in my last show when I get a chance. Sadly I don't think I got a good one of me in armor (I was only in armor/fighting for one scene) but I have a lot in my "kingly" garb. I'm in rehearsal for my next show. We're opening September 4th as it happens. So again we're lined up well with my show. Goal 1: Kick ass on my show. I've got a nice part and I'm working with a
  7. The bad: My friends got engaged on Saturday and another had a birthday that night (well THAT is good) and I broke my no liquid calories rule. Just for that day, but I broke it pretty solidly. I also showed it's not just the calories from beer/wine, but the food I order because my inhibitions are lowered. Not good diet wise, though I did have fun. The good: 5k time was 26:56. Not near a PR, but it was a hilly course and it was in the middle of the day. Not terrible really. And I was second in my age group! So not so bad. I did tweak my ankle a bit. not terrible, but my Achilles gets sor
  8. Between rehearsal, working out, and, well, working, I've been pretty busy. I'd like to update once a week, but obviously other things take priority as long as I'm doing well working towards my goals. Thus far: 1) Good! I've been busting it out on P90X. I substituted elliptical last week for plyo, which is a pretty big step down in intensity, but because of the time and how I was feeling (sore Achilles) I didn't want to jump around. I'm definitely getting stronger and fitter, though plyo totally still kicked my ass today. 2) Good! I've had a few cadbury cream eggs (a weakness) but thank
  9. Ok, so last challenge was about getting fit for my next show. This challenge is about doing the show. The story thus far: I am an attorney, but I'm an actor, and I want to direct my life to it on a full time basis. I applied to grad school, but unfortunately I didn't get in this year. This doesn't mean it's dead, it just means the timeline is going to be delayed a bit. What I need to do is dedicate myself to doing well on what I do each day, and improving myself as much as I can to prepare myself for the next step (which will come, oh yes it will). What I'm doing right NOW is starting reh
  10. Hey man, I just wanted to say that your tone is pretty down because you didn't reach the "goals" you set, but looking at what you did this challenge, I think it's pretty impressive! You lost a bit of weight on a consistent basis (I like the 1 week average approach!), you tried 5 new recipes (not bad!), you improved on the money bars (I can't do that very well either) and you wrote more than 10,000 words! I mean, that seems pretty good to me. It's important to have goals for accountability, and to measure progress, but don't forget the purpose of goals is to motivate you to make progress
  11. Starting stats: Chest: 48" Waist: 43.5" Hips: 45" Legs: 24" (same r/l) Arms: 14.75" (same r/l) Weight: 231 lbs Finishing stats: Chest: 48" Waist: 42.5" (at belly button) Hips: 44.5" Legs: 24" (same r/l) Arms: 15" (same r/l) Weight: 227 lbs 1) P90X The goal here is do the workouts 6 days a week. I consistently hit 5 days a week (though on a few days I subbed in elliptical for plyo because I wanted to reduce impact around the half marathon... I also subbed in one "running outside" for a cardio since it was such a nice day!). That's not bad. It wasn't 6 days, but it was a con
  12. Ok. So I'm about the same size, a bit more fit. Let's look at the goals: 1) P90X The goal here is do the workouts 6 days a week. I consistently hit 5 days a week (though on a few days I subbed in elliptical for plyo because I wanted to reduce impact around the half marathon... I also subbed in one "running outside" for a cardio since it was such a nice day!). That's not bad. It wasn't 6 days, but it was a consistent 5. Grade: B+ 2) FOOD - ZERO sugar, ZERO things from the vending machine I am happy to report complete success over the vending machine. Zero sugar... well that's a
  13. Last day! Finishing stats: Chest: 48" Waist: 42.5" (at belly button) Hips: 44.5" Legs: 24" (same r/l) Arms: 15" (same r/l) Weight: 227 lbs More complete write up after dinner.
  14. Getting measured for my costume tomorrow. Will be an interesting check to see if I've made any progress. [Edit/Update: 42" in the waist. A bit of progress.]
  15. Thanks. Yeah, I could easily see doing another cycle of it. It's a high level of difficulty, but it's not impossible. It's just that I'm a LONG way from getting close to them in terms of form/reps etc... It's varied and quite scale-able, so it's difficult at lots of fitness levels. Right now I feel I'm at the bottom of the fitness scale in terms of "people who can realistically attempt the workouts." I may need to get some heavier weights next time through, but over all I am looking forward to doing it every day. Well, maybe looking forward is not quite the right phrase... let's say I
