    I had one of those reckless days yesterday, it flipping sucks, so I used all that food as fuel in a late night leg session! I never workout late, always first thing in the day. Shocked me I'm sure. Back on track today. Something about being away from everything in the woods really helps the body, mind, and soul. Like Jep Robertson once said, "being in the woods soothes the soul!" Enjoy your Easter buddy!

    I drank three pints of beer and ate two burgers on Saturday, but other than that I followed my diet 100%.

    Weight

    Mon: 129,10 kg (284,6 lbs)

    Sat: N/A
    Sun: 128,80 kg (284 lbs)

    Forgot to weigh myself on Saturday morning...

    So far my weekly average weights looks like this:

    Week 07 / 2017: 133,68 kg
    Week 08 / 2017: 132,41 kg (-1,27 kg)
    Week 09 / 2017: 131,64 kg (-0,77 kg)
    Week 10 / 2017: 130,86 kg (-0,79 kg)
    Week 11 / 2017: 130,76 kg (-0,10 kg)
    Week 12 / 2017: 130,36 kg (-0,40 kg)
    Week 13 / 2017: 129,42 kg (-0,94 kg)
    Week 14 / 2017: 128,80 kg (-0,62 kg)

    I'm quite happy with the progress overall.

    Some measurements:
    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm
    waist: 127cm (thickest part, around belly button), 118cm -> 117cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 127cm

    workouts:

    Upper body on Wednesday
    Lower body on Thursday

    I was supposed to go to the gym on Saturday and Sunday, but the truth is that I was just lazy and I did not go. So I will go to gym today and tomorrow. I also bought weight lifting shoes for squats (Adidas Power Perfect II). Those shoes have three things that I like: flat bottom, no cushioning and raised heel. I've been using these a couple of times now and I think these were a good purchase.

    Thanks, I will and I agree 100% with above statement, but I might stay at home for Easter after all due to bad weather forecast, but we shall see if that is accurate...

    Did you end up going to the gym on Monday and yesterday?

    A few missed workouts wont derail your progress, but if you notice it becoming a pattern/habit then its time to re-focus and get back up to regular training.

    There is a nice steady downward trend in your weight, keep on doing what you are doing, since it is working

    Looks like your doing a great job. I found the first 10lb were tough and then after that the lb started dropping fast. Love that you do the photo's to keep track of your progress. On those days when I don't feel motivated, I look at my progress pictures and realize why I'm doing this in the first place. Being able to look at progress photo's is so important because we don't see it like other do who don't see you very often.

    I did, but I have to say that I really didn't feel like doing any lifting. It is like I constantly had to force myself to continue. Usually it is not like this for me. Sometimes I feel lazy and don't want to workout, but when I drag my lazy ass to the gym and start doing something, usually at that point the laziness goes out of the window and I actually enjoy doing the workout, but not this time.

    Spring is here and summer is coming and it is nice to spent more time outside, so maybe that is the reason why. Maybe during summer time I will do a little less lifting and a little more something else physical activity, but I'm so tired of being a fat ass, that there is no way I'm quitting this journey. (And since I'd like to lose fat, not muscle, I try to keep the lifting as priority.)

    Hows your energy intake been? both overeating, and more likely, under-eating, can result in diminished motivation - when I train fasted the set feels like I am slowly pulling off my toenails - torturous. If your deficit is very aggressive for a certain day even an apple about 15 mins before you workout can have a very positive effect on your mood during training.

    Well done on actually going under those conditions - I know exactly how you feel, and getting up and going to get it done(even if it is a poverty half set) under those mental conditions is damned hard.

    Quoted for truth on all fronts, but especially the bolded part. I have found out that my energy is significantly improved on early morning workouts when I eat a banana before getting started, even if eat a nice big, protein-rich breakfast. Those carbs really give a nice immediate boost to energy levels for the workout.

    Weekly recap

    Calories:

    Mon: 2454 kcal, P:197 g, H: 211 g, F: 88 g
    Tue: 2463 kcal, P:180 g, H: 184 g, F: 103 g
    Wed: 2643 kcal, P:191 g, H: 220 g, F: 104 g
    Thu: 2775 kcal, P:206 g, H: 253 g, F: 101 g
    Fri: N/A
    Sat: 2354 kcal, P:125 g, H: 220 g, F: 106 g
    Sun: 2547 kcal, P:171 g, H: 247 g, F: 95 g

    I did not go to my parents cottage for Easter due to cold weather. Instead, on Friday I went to a friends place for barbeque (and some beer). I probably ate more than I consumed, but I don't know the calories. Other than that I'm fairly happy with my eating this week.

    Weight

    Mon: 128,00 kg (282,1 lbs)
    Tue: 127,90 kg (282,0 lbs)
    Wed: 127,70 kg (281,5 lbs)
    Thu: 127,80 kg (281,8 lbs)
    Fri: 127,60 kg (281,3 lbs)
    Sat: N/A
    Sun: 128,50 kg (283,3 lbs)

    I forgot to weigh myself on Saturday morning... again... But after the barbeque, maybe it was a good thing, lol...

    This weeks average weight:

    15 / 2017: 127,92 kg (-0,88 kg)

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm
    waist: 127cm -> 126cm (thickest part, around belly button), 117cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 127cm -> 126cm

    Workouts:

    Upper body on Monday
    Lower body on Tuesday
    Running some stairs on Thursday
    Upper body on Sunday

    Next workout is lower body tomorrow.

    Well... I thought that maybe the extra calories eaten during the Barbeque on Friday would give some extra energy to Sundays workout so I tested my strength a little bit. 5x102,5kg on bench press and almost successful chin up were something that I'd like to mention. On that chin up I was able to pull myself high enough that my nose was on the same level with the chin up bar. I am pretty happy with that.

    Future goals:

    Earlier this week, I didn't feel like doing much lifting so I thought maybe if I had some goals in my mind that would help me stay motivated. So here it is:

    1. To be able to do one proper chin up, since it is getting so close.
    2. To beat my all time best bench press set: 5x110kg, since it is getting also so close. It took me three weeks to go from 5x100kg to 5x102,5kg, so I'm guessing it will take at least couple of months before I complete this goal, but I'm going to go for it.
    3. To be able to squat more than bench press. I think it is somewhat embarrasing that I'm able bench press more than squat, so I want to change that. Slowly I have started to increase my squat weights, but I'm still a little uncertain about my squat form, so I don't rush with this one.

    I thought about this, and checked my calories:

    Sunday: 2331 kcal
    Monday: 2454 kcal (upper body workout)
    Tuesday: 2463 kcal (lower body workout)

    On Sunday, even though I did not workout, my activity level was significantly higher than usual. So all those three days the calory deficit was most likely closer 1000 kcal and my weight dropped 1,1kg between sunday morning and wednesday morning, so maybe there was a little bit of under-eating, but nothing too crazy.

    I always eat the biggest meal of the day approximately two hours before any workout, because I hate working out while I'm hungry.

    Thanks man! And I agree with you on the progress photos. It is definetly a good tool to track progress and once you start seeing some progress it also helps with the motivation since the photos show that all that grinding is leading to results.

    Progress photos

    I thought that I might as well add some progress photos too. Here is the total progress I have made so far. Please notice that the camera angle and the lighting is a little different in the photos and thus the photos are not 100% comparable, but I still think that photos shows the progress that I've made.

    It must be satisfying to look at your pics side by side and know that your progress is clear and noticeable, keep up the regular photos and tracking - they will eventually tell a fantastic story.

    Keep grinding Jarno, its working.

    Sun: 2623 kcal, p: 187 g, c: 199 g, f: 118 g

    Overall I'm ok with calories this week, but I'm not happy with food that I ate during weekend. I slipped from my diet a little bit and I am dissapointed to myself because of that. I did not plan on having a cheat day or anything like that. Good thing is that I was able too keep the calories under maintenance, but the food that I ate was not the most healthy.

    Weight

    Mon: 128,10 kg (282,4 lbs)
    Tue: 127,70 kg (281,5 lbs)
    Wed: 127,60 kg (281,3 lbs)
    Thu: 127,20 kg (280,4 lbs)
    Fri: 127,60 kg (281,3 lbs)
    Sat: 127,30 kg (280,6 lbs)
    Sun: 127,00 kg (280,0 lbs)

    This weeks average weight:

    16 / 2017: 127,50 kg (-0,42 kg)

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm
    waist: 126cm -> 125cm (thickest part, around belly button), 117cm -> 116cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 126cm -> 125cm

    Measurements keeps going down. I have to say that seeing these numbers go down and seeing progress in the progress photos is much more satisfying than seeing the number on the scale go down.

    Workouts/physical activities:

    Lower body on Tuesday
    Upper body on Thursday
    Lower body on Saturday
    27 holes of disc golf on Sunday (approx. 3 hours)

    On Saturday I tried to do squat with a bit heavier weights. (heavier for me ) Best set was 6 x 90kg, which is still pretty weak, but it is the best set I have lifted during this journey. The next day my hip flexors were hurting again, which was not nice.

    This was the first time I played disc golf this year. Disc golf is pretty much the only physical activity I have done during the last couple of years (before starting this journey). I like disc golf and I have plenty of friends who play disc golf so I also like the social aspect of it. Now that the weather finally getting better, I will probably play it maybe once or twice a week until autumn comes. As you probably can imagine, disc golf is not physically very demanding sport, so I don't think that it will hurt my lifting too much.

    Thank you both for your kind words, it means a lot to me. I'll keep grinding! And yes Luke, seeing progress in the photos is quite satisfying.

    Saturday evening was full of drinking alcohol and eating junk food. I had really fun evening, so no regrets there, but I do realize that these types of social events will kill my weight loss journey if they happen too often. Good thing is that nowadays most of my friends have families so they don't go out that often anymore, so realistically these types of social events happens only a couple times a year.

    Weight

    Mon: 126,90 kg (279,8 lbs)
    Tue: 127,00 kg (280,0 lbs)
    Wed: 126,30 kg (278,4 lbs)
    Thu: 126,00 kg (277,8 lbs)
    Fri: 126,10 kg (278,0 lbs)
    Sat: 126,60 kg (279,1 lbs)
    Sun: 128,30 kg (282,8 lbs)

    Weight jumped up quite a bit after Saturday, which was expected. Lets see how long it takes that my weight gets back down. Last time I had a big cheat day it took 5 days to get back where I was before the cheat day...

    This weeks average weight:

    17 / 2017: 126,74 kg (-0,76 kg)

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm
    waist: 125cm -> 124cm (thickest part, around belly button), 116cm -> 114cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 125cm

    So according to my measurements I have now lost 10 cm of my belly, which is great!

    Workouts/physical activities:

    2x upperbody workouts
    1x lowerbody workout
    1 round (18 holes) of disc golf.
    45 minutes of stairs running. (This was really exhausting once again...)

    I'm happy with my diet this week aside from what happened on Saturday. I was not planning on having a cheat day or anything like that, but there I was sitting in my balcony, sun was shining and it was warm. I just started thinking that cold beer would taste soooo good right now. Next thing you know I'm thinking that one beer is not going to do much harm and of course I drank that beer. Then I started thinking like it is not the end of the world if drink a couple of more. So I drank the whole six pack of beer. So that's that. Slippery slope I guess.

    Weight

    Mon: 128,00 kg (282,2 lbs)
    Tue: 127,10 kg (280,2 lbs)
    Wed: 126,90 kg (279,8 lbs)

    Sat: 126,30 kg (278,4 lbs)
    Sun: 126,10 kg (278,0 lbs)

    It took me the whole week for my weight to drop to back where it was before last week Saturdays big cheat day. I guess that is what you get if go out drinking and eating a ton of junk food.

    This weeks average weight:

    18 / 2017: 126,81 kg (+0,07 kg)

    First time during this journey my weekly average weight actually increased. I'm not too worried about it, because the measurements showed improvement and today's weight was already down to 125,6 kg.

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm
    waist: 124cm -> 123cm (thickest part, around belly button), 114cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 125cm -> 124 cm

    Workouts/physical activities:

    2x upperbody workouts
    2x lowerbody workout
    2 rounds (36 holes) of disc golf.

    Not much to say about the workouts at the moment really. Just grinding in the gym and playing some disc golf.

    Keep it up Jarno.

    Dont sweat a 6 pack or two - this process is a supplement to our lives, it should never be all consuming. Alcohol is just such a damned unhelpful molecule, metabolically speaking, It does wonders for the mood though

    Remember that the grind is a means to an end, after you are done with this fat loss thing maintenance makes training much more interesting

    Talking Jeans challenge

    Here is my jeans challenge.

    Obviously the goal is to be able to wear those smallest jeans again. When I started this journey I was able to wear the largest ones without a belt. At that time I could not close the top two buttons on the second largest ones. Now I cannot wear the second largest without a belt anymore. Currently the measurement of the thinnest part of my waist is 114cm. In order to complete this challenge that measurement needs to be approximately 96cm. So it will take long time before this goal is completed.

    2. To beat my all time best bench press set: 5x110kg, since it is getting also so close. It took me three weeks to go from 5x100kg to 5x102,5kg, so I'm guessing it will take at least couple of months before I complete this goal, but I'm going to go for it.
    3. To be able to squat more than bench press. I think it is somewhat embarrasing that I'm able bench press more than squat, so I want to change that. Slowly I have started to increase my squat weights, but I'm still a little uncertain about my squat form, so I don't rush with this one.
    Number one completed! I did a lower body workout today, but between squat sets I just tried if I could do the chin up, and I was just barely able pull myself high enough that the tip of my chin was over the bar. I'll count that as a successful chin up. Next goal is to do two chin ups.

    Sun: 2411 kcal, p: 171 g, c: 233 g, f: 85 g

    I had a cheat meal Saturday evening, so I don't know exact calories for that day, but I tried to keep it close to maintenance. Other than that I followed my diet 100%.

    Weight

    Mon: 125,60 kg (276,9 lbs)
    Tue: 125,20 kg (276,0 lbs)
    Wed: 124,90 kg (275,4 lbs)
    Thu: 124,70 kg (274,9 lbs)
    Fri: 124,40 kg (274,2 lbs)
    Sat: 124,40 kg (274,2 lbs)
    Sun: 124,50 kg (274,4 lbs)

    I did not expect my weight to drop below 125kg this week, but it did, which was a pleasent surprise. It has been two years since I last time weighed less than 125kg. I remember that, because exactly two years a go was the last time I tried to lose weight. Back then I managed to lose only 5kg and then I just returned to old bad habits, so it was one big fail.

    This weeks average weight:

    15 / 2017: 124,81 kg (-2,00 kg)

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm
    waist: 123cm -> 122cm (thickest part, around belly button), 114cm -> 113cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 124 cm



    Workouts/physical activities:

    2x lowerbody workout
    2x upperbody workout
    1 round (18 holes) of disc golf

    The highlight of my week was that one successful chin up. Squat is still a big struggle, but it is what it is. It still feels like I just don't have good enough mobility to do squats properly, even though I have tried to improve it. I think I need to do some research on how to improve my mobility, since I'm obviously failing to do that right now.

    Keep on keeping on Jarno.

    You are getting some great momentum. Well done on the chinup - its a huge step, gaining some power over the way your body moves, when it was such a burden only a short time ago.

    I will keep on keeping on. The truth is that when I started this journey I had no idea how long I would be able keep going. I thought that there was really strong possibility that I would just quit this and continue to live the same way as before. (eating junk food and drinking beer.) But now, 13 weeks later, I'm very confident that I can finish this weight loss journey and stay lean. In fact right now I have no doubt about it. Sure there will be some slips and missed workouts and whatever, but I will not quit. I can promise that right now.

    I think it was great decision to start this log. One of the reasons why I started this was that I wanted to "force" myself to stay on the right path. I simply don't want to fail publicly, so I thought that would be a great source of motivation. I can't be sure how things would have gone, if I didn't have this log, but it has definitely helped me to keep going in many ways. One of the biggest things is support from people like you Luke, who are constantly encouraging and helping others. So thank you for that.

    Right now it feels like I don't necessarily need this log anymore to stay on the right path, but I like to finish what I started so will keep posting until this journey is finished. So you people are not going to get rid of me anytime soon.

    Cool 10 kg lost!

    So today I have lost 10 kg of my weight! I know I'm still only in the beginning of my journey, but it does feel good to see double digits in the weight lost column.

    Cool Weekly recap

    Tue: 2639 kcal, P: 194 g, C: 228 g, F: 103 g

    Sun: 2541 kcal, P: 188 g, C: 229 g, F: 94 g

    Friday was a warm sunny day here in Finland. It was the first day this year that felt like it's summer. Temperature was above 20 degree in Celcius. So we went out with some friends at Friday evening after work and had a cheat meal and some beer and generally just enjoyed the warm weather outside. Nothing too crazy, but calories might have been a little over maintenance.

    Weight

    Mon: 125,30 kg (276,2 lbs)
    Tue: 124,00 kg (273,4 lbs)
    Wed: 124,10 kg (273,6 lbs)
    Thu: 123,80 kg (272,9 lbs)
    Fri: 123,80 kg (272,9 lbs)
    Sat: 124,60 kg (274,7 lbs)
    Sun: 124,30 kg (274,0 lbs)

    This weeks average weight:

    15 / 2017: 124,27 kg (-0,54 kg)

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 75cm -> 74cm
    waist: 122cm -> 121cm (thickest part, around belly button), 113cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 124cm -> 123cm

    Measurements keeps going down. It's great. It is also awesome to notice that I have some old clothes that now fits me and some of the clothes that I wore when I started this journey are a now simply too large.

    Workouts/physical activities:

    2x lowerbody workout
    1x upperbody workout
    1 hour of cycling

    I only did one upperbody workout this week due to pain in my left elbow. So I'll give it some rest so the pain don't get worse.

    progress photos

    It's been 5 weeks since I last time posted progress photos, so I decided to do a progress photo update. There is not that much of a difference, but according to my measurements I've lost 5 cm of my belly between the photos.

    Thumbs down I just came to here to complain.

    I haven't done much cardio lately and it seems that yesterdays cycling session was a bit of a shock to my body. It was fun, cycling in a warm sunny weather, but in the evening when I tried to go to sleep, I just kept sweating and my body just refused to calm down and I could not really sleep last night. Every time I fell to sleep I just woke up again in no time. That went on the whole night. Now I'm at work and I'm tired and I feel like crap because of it. Also my elbow is still a little sore (it hurts if I try to pull something with my left hand), so I guess now is good time take some rest days...

    I am curious as to what would be considered a "warm sunny day" in Finland?

    Did you go unusually heavy on bench press recently? I find my tricep tendon gets very inflamed if I over work myself on chest and tricep day, and strangely enough, it manifests as pain when flexing the bicep (pulling things). Lack of sleep is a huge pain, and surprisingly hard to recover from, my sympathy (I am also running on the red line as my wife has been working very late setting papers etc. and it disturbs my usual sleep pattern).

    In this case warm sunny day was warm enough that I could ride my bicycle wearing shorts and tank top and not feel cold. I didn't check the temperature, but I imagine it was most likely a little over 20 degree in Celcius.

    I'm not sure what caused the pain in my elbow, but the good thing is that it is getting better and it feels like it is almost healed. I think a couple of more rest days and I can start to do some light upper body workouts again. The pain is not in the tricep tendon though. It is more in the forearm arm side. I'm not trying to self diagnose myself too much, because I'm not a doctor and I have not visited one, but the pain is right at the spot where you would have pain if you have "Golfer's elbow".

    Saturday some friends called me and asked if they could come to my place to watch FA Cup final. Well, I said yes and they came over. So it meant drinking some beer and eating junk food. It was fun, but stupid because calories were quite high for Saturday. Definitely above maintenance.

    Weight

    Mon: 125,00 kg (275,5 lbs)
    Tue: 124,10 kg (273,6 lbs)
    Wed: 123,40 kg (272,0 lbs)
    Thu: 123,30 kg (271,8 lbs)
    Fri: 122,80 kg (270,7 lbs)
    Sat: 122,60 kg (270,2 lbs)
    Sun: 123,80 kg (272,9 lbs)

    Weight dropped below 123 kg this week which was nice.

    This weeks average weight:

    21 / 2017: 123,57 kg (-0,70 kg)

    Some measurements:

    arm: 45cm
    thigh 74cm
    waist: 121cm (thickest part, around belly button), 113cm -> 112cm (thinnest part, right above hips)
    calve: 43cm
    chest: 123cm

    Workouts/physical activities:

    1x lowerbody workout
    ~30 km of cycling
    2 rounds (40 holes) of disc golf

    I decided not to do any upper body workouts this week, because of the pain I've had in my left elbow. I just thought that it is better to let it heal properly before continuing upper body workouts. Next week the plan is to do two lower body workouts and one relatively light upper body workout.
