I decided it was about time I started journaling somewhere a little more public where other people can see what I'm doing and get it all out in the open. So here we go!
Starting Weight: 204 (Oct 4 2011)
Current Weight: 195 (Nov 13 2011)
Workout Plan: Jamie Eason LiveFit
Starting working out on my own in Oct, a couple days a week doing weight training and laying off the cardio (maybe 1-2 days). And this was working well, but I was having trouble with my eating. I found Jamie's program on BB.COM, did the research and decided this was the best bet for me right now. I do much better with a structured plan than having to come up with everything on my own (at least when I start).
Started this on Oct. 17th. I am now in Phase 2 - Week 5! Just added cardio back in yesterday and that was a butt kicker! But I pushed my way through it and had some great results.
My plan is just to be in better physical condition and health. Weight lifting has been great for my motivation and drive. I feel more excited to be in the gym seeing results all the time. I've already done more than I could have imagined and in my head this is the right way to do it. I've done "biggest loser" @ my gym twice and had great results, but the intensity and rapid weight loss just lead to me gaining it all back. Slowing down and taking time is already proving to be a much better position.
So that's where I'll start. I'll post work-outs and food as I go along. Just want a place where I can be accountable for myself and get some motivation from other people at the same time. I'm tired of being lazy and using that as an excuse to be fat.
