I’m glad that today was the ab-only part of the workout, because that seems like a bit of a rest even though the bicycle kicks and the hip raises feel like someone is injecting Tabasco sauce right into my stomach.  I was going to do my intervals from last night, but I didn’t — so I’m still planning on the trip up Kennesaw Mountain this weekend.  I’ll take the boys if the weather is decent, because they always have a good time up there.

So, on to the pizza…I was working late again, and I was starving.  So I went to Costco at 7:30pm to get one of their turkey rolls because they’re really good, have loads of turkey and some good Havarti cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.  Well, they were out of the turkey rolls and I had to get back to work so I had a huge slice of their supreme pizza instead.  I know it sounds like I’m giving up — one day of missing intervals and now pizza, but I swear I’m not.  Sometimes the circumstances of my job just don’t allow things to happen like I would like them to, such as not being able to read to my boys at night and tuck them in, sometimes not seeing them all day.

A guy at work is doing the P90X workout and let me see the materials.  I’m considering it, but I’m not sure yet.  If anyone knows anything more about it, please let me know.

  • 1 banana
  • ham slices
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 1 apple w/peanut butter
  • Diet Dr. Pepper
  • more ham slices
  • 1 apple
  • water
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • Diet Dr. Pepper
  • 1 huge slice of Costco supreme pizza (I really wanted the turkey roll, but they were out.  Really.  Honest.)
  • water (that’s good, right?)  :-)

    No daily posts. No intervals one day. Pizza on the next. Next thing will be Ripped Geek posting to his blog from his couch eating bon bons while watching late-night TV with credit card and phone in hand ready to buy a secret get-ripped-gimmick like the Shake Weight. :o)

    C’mon Ripped Geek…pull it together. Run up the dang mountain on Sunday and we’ll let you rest and enjoy the Super Bowl evening festivities. Then suck it up and get with the routine on Monday.


  2. Hey Wendy,

    Thanks for your inspirational comments! I know, I know, I’m slipping, eating pizza, next thing I know I’ll be drinking 6-packs of beer and wallowing in a pit of nacho cheese Doritos. Mmmm, Doritos…maybe they could be one of my sponsors!

    Thanks again for stopping by!

  3. You have to cheat sometime. The eating regimen can be tough while you’re trying to lose, but you need to find a routine that you can live with. Otherwise, you revert beck to your old ways.

    So are you losing inches anywhere, yet? Hopefully you took a before picture….you know, the one with a sad look on your face and your gut hanging over your belt. :-)

    Keep it up!


  4. Hey Rob,

    It was actually great to cheat, and I cheated a little more over the weekend (2 beers and a few cookies on Saturday). The good thing is that those things really felt like treats and it was easy to go back to eating well afterward. I didn’t feel like I really wanted to keep eating and drinking like that. Well, I lie — the beer was damn good!

    Thanks for the comments!
