Notes:

Much like yesterday, today I wasn’t really concentrating on the steps. Instead of doing well, however, I did pretty badly. I was kind of sleep deprived today, so maybe that’s why. It doesn’t help that the back arrow on my DDR pad keeps slipping farther and farther back either. If Only I had a metal pad

Besides the whole doing bad score-wise, I actually think it was a good workout. I guess it really doesn’t matter how many points I get as long as I’m burning enough calories…

Notes:

Today I was kind of spacing out during the workout, and thinking about other things. Surprisingly, I still did pretty good. I just picked random songs for about 30 minutes or so, then I went into training mode to practice “Can’t Stop Fallin’ in Love Speed Mix” for about 20 minutes. I think I learned all of the steps, but by the time I was done practicing, I was too tired to try the whole song again.

I also felt really tired at the end of the workout. I dunno if this is because the training was more intense, or if it’s because the weather is unseasonably warm right now (a high of 70F). Either way, I think I had a very good workout, because I’m seriously tired now.

Notes:
Today was kind of so-so. DDR Max 2 seems to be the hardest Dance Dance Revolution for me. I don’t think the songs are any harder though. Maybe the accuracy is just more exactly? It could also just be that I don’t practice DDR Max 2 a lot. I really like the Japanese version of DDR Extreme because it has so many songs.

My weight has slowly been going back up to the 180 level. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s more muscle building, or maybe I’m getting fatter… I guess I’ll just have to keep up the exercise.

Notes:

Today I still felt good, just not as fresh as before. Because of this, I only played about 45 minutes. I got a bunch of full combos, but not good enough for AAs…

I guess today will be my semi-off day, and tomorrow I’ll try for an hour.

Notes:

Today I felt pretty good, just like yesterday. I was able to play for an hour (more or less) again too. I was finally able to AA on The Cube, which has been eluding me for a while now.

Since I started the workout, I think I’ve gone from a shirt size XL to L. This is pretty cool, however it means I’ll have to buy new t-shirts. I’ve noticed that XL shirts just seem too big for me now. Oh well, what can a guy do?
