Project Lose That Gut Fattie Pt.1
Yesterday I took a look in the mirror and realized I truly am not happy with the way that I have been taking care of my body. My friends kind of fucked with me and started calling me fat and fat ass and all this other stuff but to tell you the truth it really opened my eyes and made me want to change. Not for them, even though it bothered me, but for my god damn self. My friend reflected a moment in time when this kid came up to me and said "dude, do you wrestle, you have a wrestlers type body?" like five years or so ago on the boardwalk. I hardly ever worked out then at all but I remember when he said that it made me feel awesome. Just getting little compliments like that regardless from a guy or girl is a good push towards your self esteem. I used to be in such good shape when I was playing baseball and frankly the years of partying caught up to me. My worst weight that I ever hit was 220 lbs and that was a scary day when I stepped on the scale and saw that. Completely fucking freaked me out. I felt like such a fucking slob. Then I completely stopped drinking for like 7 months. In that time period I was losing tons of weight without even working out. Eating whenever the hell I wanted and whatever the hell I wanted and I was content with that because the weight was coming off. It's truly the beer that does it. I went from 220 to 195 like it was nothing. Well it kind of was. 7 months of nothing. I was riding my bike a lot through the summer time so that probably helped. I had my salads here and there but I didn't really work at it to make like this sculpture of a body, I was just bettering myself mentally from taking a step back from alcohol. Well my eyes are open again and I'm completely focused on what I want to do. Right now I am at 210 lbs. I worked out very hard yesterday but also ate like a jackass because it was the Superbowl and my friends mom made tons of food. Sue me. That was my big banger. My last hooorahhhh if you will. Today I was a god damn champ so ill mark this as day one. Today I ran for 10 minutes which calculated into a mile and a half. I did 250 crunches and 150 push ups. I plan to do this at least five days a week and leave the push ups to an every other day thing to let the muscle have a day off to relax. To eat I started the day off with a Grilled Chicken Salad. The Grilled Chicken was minimal and there was one hard boiled egg in it. I also would like to add that there was a 30 calorie low fat serving of Italian dressing in the mix. I ate this and I felt like a million bucks and I was legitimately full. Id say roughly this meal came out to 400 calories or less. We can say 400. Later in the day I had a fruit cup that came out to 160 calories. It was all mixed fruit and natural. Tasted delicious. Completely held me over till dinner. For dinner I had 6 shrimp tails and two small but hearty portions of fish with orange juice sprayed on it. This meal was god damn delicious and I didn't feel like a piece of shit after at all. Id say this dinner was 500 calories and I was more than satisfied. So today for the whole day I took in 1,100 calories in comfortably and I am more than content with that. All I drank was water with everything.This is only day one. Like I said earlier I am at a sloppy 210 lbs haha. It's what I've weighed forever but I've never liked it. My goal is to be a healthy,lean 185 pounds by June 1st. I did the math from here to then and to do that it means I need to lose 1 pound every five days. If I continue to watch what I eat, which I will, and work out, which I will, then this goal is completely achievable. So mark it down. Today is February 8th and it is day 1 of transformation. 25 lbs in 4 months. Lets do this. Anyone who knows me knows that if I get my head locked on something I push for it 110% and then some if I'm interested in it. My health is something that I am completely interested in. Wish me luck but I'm not gonna need much. I'm straight focused. Ladies prepare yourselves. Males you can learn a thing or two. Karebear in his prime. June 1st, 2010. Count it. Ill throw this video in too. My before bed music for tonight.
