I need to go buy some food with good nutrition... badly. I need money for that though. Kawawa. The other day, i saw what looked like a black Klean Kanteen in the middle of the street. I thought aww, too bad for whoever lost that. I think I lost it.

Day 27, 28, 29

Day 27, I didn't work out. It was a "cheat day." Some nutritional highlights

Day 23

Morning weigh-in: 258.0

50 reps of each exercise for time (40:33)

I think the 255's from last week might have been anomalous. I sure hope I'm not rapidly putting on that much weight and going back and forth. 6 pounds in 1 week sounded too good to be true. Then again, I do need to completely stay away from rice and still be aware of my food intake on cheat days.

500 reps of work. plus all of the "i forgot what rep i'm at, so i'll just go back to the last number i remember" extras. wow.

-Basketball (about 30 minutes of playing time)

This past cheat weekend wasn't the best. I woke up this morning at 261.2 (exactly the same as my official BLD Biggest Loser weigh-in from Friday). Just now, I weighed in at 262.4. I need to do a better job at keeping myself hydrated.

During garbage time (we lost the basketball game pretty badly), I went up strong for a layup and got bumped in midair. I landed with my right foot far in front of me and felt my tendons stretch. I'm pretty concerned about my Achilles tendon. That's where it's been hurting the most.

I think I'm going to pass on the basketball season that starts in June and focus more on getting in shape and strengthening my weak ankles. I've seen a dramatic increase in strength in my chest and core through CrossFit, and I know I can do the same with my ankles.
