Cutting back never ever works. You need to develop discipline anyway and that's a perfect place to start. Not to mention it will save you a load of cash these days.
    In the pit at school, got 3 regular size smokes for $1.50, it really is expensive. Anyways, I just saw a dietician Friday, and she put me on this diet.
    Rock on, go big or go home, hit the ground running, hang in there kitty... don't eat the yellow snow...

    8 minute mile is a good benchmark. I would have expected situps to be much higher and not sure why you are measuring the bench press. Pretty much a show and little go. Everything else looks good. Mix in the lunge and plank for a full body exercise.

    Good luck!

    Good general overall improvement. Though weight is up and bench press is down a little:

    February 13, 2011
    Weight: 280lbs (up 3lbs )
    Push-ups: 11 (3 more than yesterday)
    Sit-up: 14 (4 more than yesterday)
    Running: 0.80km in 08:20 (see below)
    Smokes: lost count (based on certain circumstances, today is a write-off to this capacity)
    Bench Press: 12 reps at 80lbs (1 less than yesterday but 10lbs more)
    Lat Machine: 58 (up 8 from yesterday :O )


    Yesterday, I started out slow, then ramped it up way too fast on the treadmill. By going at a very fast walking pace, I was able to get the roughly the same speed (half a meter per minute faster, technically). so there you go

    Weight always seems to go up for a few days if you are working out and working out at a level that will produce results. Excellent start!

    Are you doing as many reps as you can at 70 lbs or... I was confused by your first post, if I may make a suggestion I would do as much weight as you can for your bench press for 10 reps. I usually do 3 sets of 10 reps for my workout.
    When you turn your air on does it return the favor?!

    3 sets of 10 is a good work out

    Are you doing an entire work out or just those exercises?

    I am knocking off roughly 20lbs on the curls and bench presses, and doing about 60 reps total of each. This is just to show how much I can do if I push myself to the absolute max
