    I know there's gotta be some lurkers in here that are planning on hitting the gym this semester. I'm one of them. :wavey:

    I'm 5'8. At one point two years ago I was 150 lb., consistently flat benching 175-200, could run for 30 minutes and not feel like death. Now I'm 185, have no clue what I can bench, and get tired going up stairs. :ugh:

    I started nursing school, that's what did me in. It's so retarded time consuming that I cut working out totally out of the equation. I know going into a health profession and gaining weight seems redundant lol. This semester is my last and I don't want to graduate a tank. I also need to lose this weight just for my own health. This shit ain't good.

    Maybe I'll start a log or something on here. Definitely keeping an Excel document or something to keep track of my progress.

    I have a friend who has always been good with his workout schedule and I plan on hitting the gym with him for weights at least once a week this semester. I will be doing cardio at least twice a week as well. If I could get down to 160 by the end of the semester I'd be happy. 25 pounds seems like so much, but I know the 35 pounds I gained wasn't because I got taller, that's all Taco Bell and beer weight. :o

    Fix your diet first.
     
  3. Need to be doing more than 3 days a week too. Fixing diet is a lot easier though IMO...running is hard and you don't even burn THAT many calories...way easier to just not stuff your face with those motha fuckin cheetos or some shit.

    I figured that went without saying. Hell, earlier this summer I tried to eat a lot of salads and other healthier stuff and ditched 10 pounds, not even working out. I know that's some weight I'll lose pretty quick.

    I gotta really watch the beer intake too, but that's not a problem since school will pretty much prevent me from ever going out. :mamoru:
