Today's Weigh-In: 223.4 lbs.
5-day Average: 226.2 lbs.

My 5-day is pretty much the same as the last time I posted, but my weight finally seems to be going down since the creatine load I started last week. It's such a crappy feeling to see the same number 3 weeks apart, even though I know it's water weight. The psychological impact of the scale should not be underestimated.

I've contracted a pretty severe throat infection, which the doctor thinks might be strep (they're testing my throat culture at the lab), so I'm taking antibiotics, since recently there's been a lot of strep throat in my area and the doctor wanted to play it safe. I skipped my workout yesterday so I could go to the doctor, and I can't make it up today because I have my company's Christmas party to go to, so that sucks. So for now I'm just going to try to get as much sleep as I can tonight, and hopefully my throat will feel well enough tomorrow so that I can hit the gym.

It's weird, it used to be that I would have to drag myself to the gym, but yesterday I had to force myself not to go so I could see the doctor. Whereas I used to hate going, I now hate *not* going. I feel like a fat load if my muscles stop feeling sore. I guess that's a more healthy mindset, I just don't want to overdo it and become one of those people who is totally obsessed with exercising and how my body looks, as that probably isn't so healthy.

Strep throat is not fun. I hope the culture comes back negative. Its important to take those days off, even when you dont want to ;) Its such a nice feeling to see that transisition between hating to go to the gym, and hating not going to the gym, eh? :)
