Enough is Enough | Shed Pounds

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

 

my previous post can be found here where I wanted to start a new year off the right way.

THEN I DID’NT DO SHIT!

I can remember a year ago being around 247 pounds and going into the winter it was creeping up and I went into the 250’s and into the 260’s

 

The reason was nutrition and food intake alone.  I was some-what active but it was not eating enough calories and eating the wrong types at the wrong times.  I’m a very happy person and very positive but looking back I’ve noticed I’m down in the dumps and not living the life I want to live.  I got a tattoo with the word “enough” to try and make me focus.

it was hard.  i went the other direction.

I signed up for a Gym membership at Fit-4-Less and I’ve even downloaded the “Lose It” app on my phone to track food intake and my smartwatch tracks other stuff with my body.  6 months ago you can see me tracking my food above.  Honestly… I fell off that bandwagon that I started at the beginning of this year.  Maybe lasted 7 weeks.

5 months ago I was 279… making a 20 pound gain in the last 6 months.  I stopped tracking.  WTF!

Since then… I have gone to the gym but not enough.  Plus what you put into your “pie hole” is what’s important and will make it count.

In May… I went to play basketball and you just get such a wake up call.  I kicked some ass on the court… but I could be so much better.  I wanted to play half court and not full court.  I could not run.

So now… back to the gym.  tracking food.  tracking progress.  my roomie is doing the same so that is helpful too.

 

So here i will start again and to save you from the “before” photo it will post my measurements.  I weigh myself at every gym visit and will post the result into my phone.  I will share them here to be accountable.

Date: August 2nd, 2018

Weight: 302 lbs / Height: 6’1″ / Age: 47 i think 😉

Bicepts: 14.25 inches

Breast: 48 inches

Mid Belly: 51 inches

Waist: 46.5 inches

Thighs: 24 inches

Calf: 17.25 inches

Honest food tracking and the gym routine.  my little yoga app and my Nike Training Club app.  I have gym buddies and the desire to be attractive to “my mind” so I can feel confident to be with someone and be attractive to them.  I have crushes on people.  The world should not be one sided.

Today is day zero.

Weight goal is 232 pounds and be a little swell in the arms and shoulders.  It’s all in my belly and that mutha fucker has got to go!

 

TODAY IS DAY ZERO.

New Kicks | For the Gym

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Just picked up some shoes with some online Black Friday shopping in Nova Scotia online from Nike.ca.  Two little pairs for the gym.  Just basic light weight Nikes.  Little did I know that Chantal was in Ontario when I was in Nova Scotia buying these and she bought the same pair but in a different colour.  Great minds think the same. 😉

While I was at it… picked up some ugly J’s.  Kind of ugly.  These are just little shoes for the gym also.  Can’t beat $49 dollar size 13 J’s that have little things from the 1988 model.

I can only do about 2 or 3 of them.  Super sad.  Well I will have to start practicing and post a video of me doing 25 straight push-ups.   Even if it’s brutal to watch.
