5 miler today, 11 miler two days ago.
Training for Hartford Half Marathon, sub 9 min/mile pace.
This summer I lost about 35lbs. I still have more to go but if I stick with what I've been doing I should be able to reach my goal by Coachella. I'm back at school now and I'm able to work out 5 days a week. Best I've felt in years too. Along with working out I've been playing racquetball twice a week and I walk my dog three times a day now. I also have way more energy because I've been eating better. I've been doing portion control and a lower carb diet. I'm not depriving myself of anything, just eating way less. I cut my carbs down to under 100g per day and I've been eating lean proteins. I also haven't had anything alcoholic since the end of May. Thanks for the motivation guys.

NO MORE BELLYYY
So I've lost 80 lbs total now in the last 2 and a half years... 181 is the lightest ive been since probably early high school. I also just joined a crossfit gym to help me build tone up and shred this last little layer of fat. Coachella 2013 will be glorious
Ever since football season started I've been drinking a ton of craft beers and eating much worse.
Gonna have to start working out 4-5 days a week instead of 3. Plus wayyyyyy more cardio.
I'm gaining a wonderful tan from going in nature naked and hiking a few miles. It's been since June since I've smoked a cig. Switching up diet to a pescatarian one currently. Pain in the ass, but my energy is already getting better.
No keep smoking more ganja.
Use it as a reward for getting shit done... if you dont do what you need to do, then dont smoke. but if you get your shit done then reward yourself... try and scoop some low calorie snacks like skinny cow... Also, when you get munchies, drink a big glass of water.
...a cool, cool beverage!

I found an "Eat This, Not That" book at work and read through it. Some of it was REALLY surprising, and I recommend picking up the latest version.
If that's your strategy with pot, its not working. You need to lay off the blue dream. #1 munchies inducer. Come out on a long backpacking hike someone with us (the goat/I) - I come back from the weekend and look in the mirror: Sexy tan, trimmed, and the leg muscles are getting nice. I'm not a gym person at all, but I can hike a few miles with a ton of weight, definitely prefer that over the ballsweat smell and meat market that is LA Fitness Hollywood.
I started cross fit on top of my dieting yesterday... Wow that is a workout, let me tell you. Since starting my diet I have lost 10 lbs, but I don't feel the difference yet. I am hoping my body responds well to this training. I need to lose about 20 more.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I've been doing Insanity for entirely too long and I need to switch it up. I was thinking of Crossfit, p90x or Asylum. Anyone try multiple programs?
I'm running a half marathon tomorrow. I am a bit worried b/c my right quad muscle has been hurting slightly, only when I run. Not so much that I have to stop the run, but I haven't run 13.1 miles in quite a while.
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
You should learn how use a foam roller, it's saved my knees so far and would be great for your quads
