Been 3 weeks today since I wrote last but decided that maybe if I put the site into my most used folder and can't close it out til I write that maybe I'll write more often. This morning on the way home from the gym I decided to set a goal for the rest of this training month to get my diet right and workouts on point to by next summer look like I could step on stage and compete. I think when I was in TOPS my goal at first was to reach KOPS then when I decided to not become one again I lost my focus on a goal so today decided to set that one and will e-mail Christian shortly to see what he thinks of the idea if I could pull it off by mid June which is going to be my 2 year trainiversary. I started training with him mid June of 2014 so would like to reach that goal by then of getting my diet right and workouts great to look like I could step on stage and compete which I probably never will but would like to look like I could. Today I did Nov Back/Biceps and since I had a headache I did 20 min on the spin bike instead of the elliptical. Waiting for my new stuff but will do Cardio on Friday late morning/early afternoon.

Didn't realize that it's been well over a month since I've been here. So much has happened starting with being finished with TOPS on October 5th since we went to Colorado on Oct 11th. Kinda miss TOPS but kinda don't for the fact that if I need to I can change up my workout days and do Chest/Shoulders/Triceps on Monday and Cardio on Tuesday if I need too which I did this week. Did Quads/Hamstrings today and tomorrow is Back/Biceps and 20 minutes of Cardio aiming to burn 200-300 calories on the machine will try the rowing machine even if the calories burned won't be accurate since there is no place to enter in my weight. So far I haven't had the success that I thought I would on my own but will still give it til January then if I need or just want to I'll rejoin TOPS but as an online member instead so I don't have to sit at the meetings that can last over an hour when we can be done in half hour by not getting off topic which happens at my now former chapter all of the time. That's one of the reason's I didn't renew and my way of thinking and there's is different now I'm OK if I have a small gain and not OK with a small loss when I think I should have a larger loss and not sweating a small gain as long as it's not over 2# then I start to worry. TOPS is a great organization but they are not OK with a small 0.2# gain and many are happy to have a small 0.2# loss on the scale where I am the opposite.
