A Bit of Exercise. This week was exactly one mile longer than last week. I ran really well (for me, 10:20 pace) for the first half and pretty much walked the last 4.5 miles.
I’m not sure why I ran out of gas but I did. Still . . . a run is a run and I am glad I went.

I took my supplements (Jack3d and Xtend) before I left about 5 AM.
For my listening pleasure this morning: the end of Jonathan Mayberry’s King of Plagues and the beginning of Travis Adkins’ Twilight of the Dead.
Mayberry rocked, as usual. Adkins . . . I am still getting used to. We’ll see how it turns out.
Plan for Week 37. This week fairly sucked diet-wise: I ate worse than I have in weeks.
Exercise, on the other hand, went well: I got in three really good workouts in my new UPs plan.
During the week I did 313 push-ups, 170 sit-ups, 458 squats, and 42 pull-ups.*
That’s not too impressive by absolute standard; many people can do that much in a single day or even one workout. Still, I am just beginning this program and I expect that I will be able to do much, much more in the days to come.

The Results. Did all of this add up to a loss or a gain? Did the upward trend of the past few weeks stop and let me get back to losing weight?

Sort of — I pretty much stayed exactly that same this week.
I felt pretty good during the week but I think my current workout program is more conducive to muscle growth than weight loss . . . much the same as what I was seeing on Occam’s Protocol and why I switched to Max Capacity Training.
BUT I am ok with that as I am already seeing a change in my body in just one week of doing these workouts. My chest looks better and I feel stronger.
