Had my 2nd of 4 class with the physical trainer for my regime. Normally there are 4-6 people per class. I was the only one in class today. So after talking to me about what I do at home she decided to do more lifting/strength exercises with me for my 30 min class. Feeling the burn tonight. Trainer was impressed as I had to ask her to make things more difficult ( add weight/ increase the step height). Most people going through the regime aren't as physically active as I am she said.


Also did some meal prep. Made a big batch of potatoe/ham soup. The organic store by the trainers had a special on chicken breast at $0.97/lb (got forced shipped 3 pallets worth from their warehouse) so I bought like 100 lbs worth and spent time separating and vacuuming sealing. Also they had 88 cent containers of blackberries so bought a couple flats and froze them to go with my strawberries and blueberries I get and freeze. Felt very productive today

Very nice bull. I'd be putting him on my wall but I've never been out west yet so that makes a difference I suppose. Got Wyoming antelope points to use soon. Trying to convince the wife to let me go on out of state trips every 2-3 years isn't easy lol.

Did 30 mins of my resistance band workouts. Something my nutritionist for my regime wants me to increase as she said I'm doing good cardio but not enough muscle/strength workouts


My bikes batteries died so that was a no go tonight have to get new ones tomorrow

Trying to recovery a little this week as I’ve been plagued with stupid over-use type nagging pains and my elk hunt did nothing to help any of that. Not working out so far though - 28,000 steps, mostly up and down ladders, in 2 days working on trying to button up my garage addition before the snow flies.

Way to stay after it Marcus. If you recall last year, I mentioned to you to increase your resistance training as it helps on several levels. Good job on staying on top of the cardio. Don't rule out the benefits of getting outside for your cardio as well. Walking hills or climbing steps are awesome exercises as you know. You've been here before and I see you are again making steady progress in reaching your goal. Biggest hurdle will be finding and fixing what went wrong. I think you already answered this in an earlier post, but keep these answers on the forefront of your thoughts. History may be destined to repeat itself, but your name is Marcus. :) Now keep after it buddy!


Just back from my 9,000' Co Muley Hunt last week. Story to come... Lot of hiking and climbing and (spoiler) heavy pack.

Friday: Chest & Traps
Saturday: Jogged 6 miles

Thanks Bonecollector yeah you are right. it's not my workout habits that have ever really been my issues it's always been the intake. The regimine for surgery I've been on for the last 4 months of visit with nutritionists and physical trainers has helped me along with the intake. Its given me more information on ratios of protien, carbs, fats. What foods to look for and so forth. They also have pushed me more on the resistance training. Going to the trainer they have been doing more weights and resistance training with me then cardio.

I have also started changing up my routine weekly. I do mostly the same workouts but now I'm switching up the orders and rest days to help keep the body guessing a little bit more.

Night eating has been issue always had been. I stick to my plan all day and it falls apart a few hours before bed time. The surgery will help with this and the base of workout and how to eat right will help me stay successful after words
