    Not so fast. "I gots myself a long ways to go."

    That banking mishap really ticked me off. @in stitches
    I hope you didn't get spanked by the boss. [​IMG]

    But, still miles better than my first post.
    It was so bad that it's been deleted. [​IMG]

    Rudals, I was so thrilled when I saw that fit. Fantastic. Has Mrs. Noodles seen some of your earlier pictures? I'm curious what she thinks of your improvement.

    Thanks Clags. Mrs. Noodles is the one who picked everything out AND folded up the pocket square AND she begrudgingly took that pic. I regret deleting my old pix because I now have nothing to reference to. She likes the way I dress enough to not tell me what to wear. But I ask her just for fun. Mrs. Noodles understands different types of ties and what they convey. She helped me get over the fence on neats. I thut they were all just butt ugly. Now I love them. But she also does like 3" ties and somewhat tapered contemporary look.

    At any rate, I still have a lot to learn but I must give YOU credit for being the most helpful member in my development since...the navy blue tie meltdown. What's next Clags? :)

    There are still 9 more days of bidding left...don't expect that tie to go for 9.99.

    Week 2 workout update

    Pretty disappointed with weight loss progress this week. That said, I am getting much more control over my diet rather than food controlling me. I am sure my stomach is shrinking. I eat much smaller portions than before and stop when I'm full. I'm sure I'll see another drop sometime soon. Overall it's still a downward trend so I can't complain.

    My running progress hasn't necessarily improved I don't think. I'm going to try and push it a little harder this next week.

    I'm really happy with the lift routine I did this week. Overall I am keeping better track of my lifts so that I can spot improvement. I destroyed my chest this morning.

    All lifts are 4x10

    Mon:
    Chest Fly (Machine) - selected plate "3" = 20lb selected weight
    Dumbbell Press - 50 lb
    Crunches
    Stretches

    Tue:
    Lat Pulldown (Machine) - selected plate "6" = 75lb selected weight
    Scapular Wall Slides (these are much harder than they look)
    Face Pull (Machine) - selected plate "2" = 16lb
    Crunches
    Stretches

    Wed:
    Incline Press (Machine) - selected plate "8" = 101lb selected weight
    Tricep Kickback - 15lb
    One Arm Dumbbell Protraction = 35lb
    Crunches
    Stretches

    Thu:
    Blackburn (I take up half the gym when I do these)
    Seated Row (Machine) - selected plate "7" = 87lb selected weight
    Face Pull (Machine) - selected plate "4" = 24lb selected weight
    Military Dumbbell Press: 40lb
    Crunches
    Stretches

    Fri:
    Pushups 4x25 (broke form pretty bad towards the end on these)
    Scapular Wall Slides
    Bench Press (Machine) - selected plate "8" = 101lb selected weight
    Dips
    Crunches
    Stretches


    Any advice/feedback/help is appreciated! Thanks for the new exercises also, Crimson/MF!!

    Question out of curiosity:
    Why are black shoes and black belts allowed with navy suits when you wouldn't wear a black tie or a pair of black trousers with a navy jacket?

    Why wouldn't I wear a black tie with a navy jacket?

    And I would I wear black trousers with anything (except a tuxedo, which I hope to never have to wear)?
