Im starting this log to help catalog the progress I make during my transformation. I have currently been training for around 7 weeks. I have been eating around 6 meals aday and have only been lifting with a few spots of cardio.

Ok...so..i have seen some progress and it has helped to motivate me to keep going, HOWEVER...i feel like im still way way thicker than i want to be.

Today during my cardio session i was going over things in my mind, and i just felt this surge of energy and adrenaline. Although I was at the end of my session, it wasn't a type of surge that made me want to run another 3 miles, i felt a second wind to really become even more hardcore with my diet and training. This feeling inspired me to start this log.

This past week I started a cut diet and i have also been doing cardio everyday. For me since i have already been making good progress so far, it really excites me that i have this urge to press on harder, when this is usually the point where i start falling away.

I usually post pics once a week on my bodypace. All of my stats are on there also.

I need all the help i can get!! so any diet suggestions or recipes are greatly appreciated and might help other people too. Also, i will list all my workouts and supps that i am taking as well.

I have always wanted to to personal training, but have never got into it because who would want to be trained by a fatty? So i hope that through my journey i will learn what it takes for people with my bodytype to be successfull in their weightloss endeavors.

So i would appreciate any and all who would like to watch this transformation and contribute to my success and anyone else who might read this.

here we go!!

today i didn't do straight cardio per say, but i did play 18 holes of golf.

my meals were the same as usual,except that i did eat my meal for noon around 1130am....then i didn't get to eat till 430..which is not good, plus i was starving. But anyway...later that night for dinner i ate with my parents and some relatives that were visiting. We ate at a mexican restaraunt and i had chicken fajitas and some beans and rice.

saturday is a rest day--and i think i need it...my calves and my quads are sore from a hard workout this week, plus the added cardio.

i really feel like friday's workout was the best i had this week.

A slow rest day. I ate pretty good today. a little low on the cals though...around 2000 i really need to pay close attention to my macro nutrients. My percentage of carbs was higher than it should be. Cardio is going good, and i will hit it hard tomorrow. Chest day is monday...whew..gettin up early. Bring it.

Great job maestro. You seem to be on top of things. I've also been going a little overboard on my cut with carbs, but just try timing them right for when you crave them the most and when you need the energy. Good luck!
