    Oh yeah, I am a bit taller than you, roughly 170. I guess that makes a difference too? I just know that I used to feel bad about my calves too before I started working out. They didn't get any smaller through exercise, but now I like the shape of them. I do think muscular calves look better, but mindset plays a big role, too.

    Like, bad food choices this past month have left me with a bigger belly than I had before I started working out, but I know (and can feel) that there's actual muscles beneath the energy stores so while I'm trying to make better choices this month, I don't feel too bad about the state of things. If that makes sense.

    I didn't mean to hi-jack your thread like this, sorry!

    It's great how so many people are doing Hero's Journey right now!

      Belerith no problem, you can hijack my thread whenever you like

      And I agree with you, muscular calves look better, so I decided to ignore my misgivings and just power them up as much as possible, putting some muscles into those thighs too, and see how it looks afterwards (hopefully not Frankenstein-ish)

      Also, if I have realised one thing since I started working out, it's that it's best not to beat yourself up too much for bad choices you can't undo anyway. If you know where you've fumbled last month you can adjust accordingly and make better choices in the next (best case scenario, of course )

      Now after almost three days of calorie counting I, for example, have finally realised that I wasn't eating below maintenance while eyeballing my meals, but probably slightly above

        Do you have a lot of stitches on your leg?

        eyeballing my meals
        Oh man yeah, same. I suppose it takes some actual practice with numbers to eyeball correctly. Maybe that's a skill you'll acquire this month?

          We chose different paths on day 2. I mostly picked to get involved because I liked the workout better and I figured that is the "hero" thing to do. Didn't think about getting robbed or ambushed so I am glad I'm not doing this alone, haha!

            I am a very careful and wary hero, guibo94

            I had homemade strawberry ice cream today! Technically, it was just frozen strawberries blended with milk, vanilla and sugar, but it was still delicious. Normally I would have done it with heavy cream, but calorie-wise, the milk version was the better path. And there were enough strawberries left to have a shake in the evening. So, today was a good day.

            Nothing else happened (aside from reading a lot about bucket-wheel excavators, don't ask me why, I don't know either, but I once saw one 'in the flesh' so to speak and it was pretty cool) so here's my status update:

            Today I did:
            - Good Morning, World! Day 17
            - 1 Minute Cardio Day 17
            - Wall Push Ups Day 17
            - Hero's Journey Day 3 (I chose Hammer and did my sets with 7.5kg dumbbells. Had to go down to 6.25kg for the alternating bicep curls in the second set because me left arm is weak)
            - Power Walk Day 17
            - Punches & Squats Day 3
            - 60 Days of Cardio Day 51 on Level 3
            - Power Grip Day 16
            Calories consumed: 1337 kcal (anyone's still writing in leetspeak nowadays? I miss leetspeak a lot )

            That was all. Hope you all had a great day

              Mmmmmmmmmmm...

              <-- is this ice cream? Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!! YAY for a good day! Nice calorie burn!!
              I think I saw a tv show called Gold Rush (here in U.S. not sure if it shows elsewhere?) that might use bucket-wheel excavators on dredges? Like, for Alaskan gold-mining long ago? And the technology still works.

              Have a nice evening and great day tomorrow Nihopaloa

                I think that's ice cream, WSMC27 and thanks!

                Those excavators seem to be really durable. Bagger 288 was built in 1978 and is still going strong as is Bagger 255 which was built in 1954 and apparently the oldest excavator that is still in use (in the world). I love huge machinery like that

                Have a wonderful day tomorrow, too!
