It was nice that I wasn't completely huffing and puffing myself to death right off the bat, at least. I managed to get through it with my dignity mostly intact. Sadly, nearly all of the weight that I lost during that two months of working out has gotten right back on me, so it's time to restart the process. But it's already a bit better than the last time I tried to play this game, at least. :P I feel like I'm in better shape. Not to mention that I don't smoke anything but weed, anymore.
you were a smoker and you quit? how long ago did you quit? it was so so hard for me, but one of the best things i ever did for myself.
i should take a look at slim in six. mix up my cardio days. wth. also i hear the "ripped in 30 days" is a really good one, too. http://www.amazon.com/Jillian-Michae...ef=pd_cp_mov_0

But maybe it also means you might take it a little harder when **** kicks you in the *** a little bit. But you'll kick it right back and you definitely know that, even if you forget or doubt it for a moment.
My legs are gonna really hate me tomorrow but I feel good and I'm glad it's done.
thanks, mambo. and i think you're spot on. i get super obsessive and one day like that can be enough to push me out of it. i'm glad i haven't given up so far. if i lose one more pound it will be 15 in three months. it's made a difference and i do like chomping at the bit to get better lifts. this thread and another one keep me excited, too. i love reading about what other people are doing.
DOMS are fun.

Good going geek! And great idea to use the microweights to slowly inch up!
yes! i'm really glad you're around these parts. and those microweights are kick ***, prude. i am going to improve my bench, for sure.
after weightlifting, the family went out to the nature fitness trail. i did fifteen minutes of the c25k and sorta ran out of gas, but i was expecting that. lifting really does wipe me out.
it was so pretty out there, i took a picture. it rained today and made everything a bit sharper instead of sorta washed out by all of the sunshine we get.
