Machete (2010)

Machete (2010)
Just look at the cast listing....Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Cheech Marin, Steven Segal...and those are the supporting cast. This movie looks like it'll be very fun to watch, I really enjoy the intentionally overly campy action movies.

Weight: Weeks two and three

So the first few weeks have been a bit discouraging.  Within five days of my last update I'd gone up to 220lbs.  It's actually rather confusing.  My eating habits have not really changed.  If anything they're better considering I'm eating less sweet dessert type foods and eating smaller portions.  I'm not binge eating, and haven't really changed my diet in any way otherwise.  Generally my weight does not fluctuate quickly, and I can eat like crap and not gain much (similarly I can eat well and not lose any).  I like to think that at least some of the weight is attributed to a bit of muscle.  Thinking that makes me feel better.

On the bright side I have stuck to goal of going to the gym three times per week.  I'm not going four to five days a week as I did last year, but thats OK.  My emphasis has been more on core strength and cardio, but I've been increasingly doing more strength training.  This change happens somewhat subconsciously, as it's the part I most enjoy.  However I've made the choice to focus just on core strength and cardio to slim down and get my endurance and stamina up.  I think as an alternative mode of measurement I'll get my wonderful mother to take some basic measurements of me and use that as a basis for how well I'm doing.

I would love to be travelling again...
