11-18-12 - Ok so For five days I ate right, worked out and gained 3 pounds it was completely demoralizing. So I hate a medium pepperoni pizza and the went out on date night ate filet mignon cheesecake and then today we had BBQ for Breakfast/lunch. It was not good. I felt like I did all that hard work for nothing and then today Big's friends came over and one of the girls in their Dungeons and Dragons group said I looked smaller, go figure right? I feel massive most days like this is a HUGE undertaking (pun totally intended) but it's really hard to just keep trucking on but we have to, results don't come easy and I'm not looking to be super thin, just healthy and a place where my body will continue to work past 30. Tomorrow is Monday and it's a new day, I'm not going to beat myself up over cheesecake, I'm not going to punish my body for what I ate but I'm going to work it out because it feels good.
11-14-12- Ok so everything going pretty good today in calorie range but man do I want a cookie, Carbs! Nom nom nom! Somehow triscuits just aren't the same. Will be posting new pic this Sunday!
So a few months ago I tried to take a balls to the wall approach to fitness, it didn't work for a few reasons. There was a lot of issues going on at the time financial, emotional, etc. So last week I started going to the gym and eating reasonably again, lost 6 pounds. I think the difference is now it's just something I do not some crazy plan I'm trying to live up to. So yeah is 6 pounds crazy good, well...yeah it is. This is my "before" pic, not too bad if I say so myself. This is me at 306 (was 312 yikes!) My 28th is Dec 7th and the goal is to be 290 or under by then, which is just a little over half a pound a day, I think it's doable. If you want follow along with me here's my
