Well as always my update is about my nutrition and how I keep messing it up on the weekends by having cheat meals. I originally set the date of hitting my goal weight of 200 bls by May 20th, that has been updated to July 1st. I also set a goal in the phase 2 of my training program of 16 lbs, didn't hit that either. Instead I'm setting a phase 3 goal of 10 bls. This is a more reasonable goal. I'm also setting a goal of no more than 1 cheat meal a week. If I can... Go to BodyBlog
Well after another weekend with out following my diet as close as I should I took a step back on my weight loss journey. I find it easy to keep a good plan in place during the week as I have a solid routine, but my weekend eating is either negating the results I am getting during the week or in this case I'm gaining additional weight back. I am determined to get to my goal of 200 lbs and it seems the only way I can do this is to watch everything I'm eating, especially on the... Go to BodyBlog
Well, I only lost .6 lbs this week. Not totally surprising after losing 6 lbs the week before. My 4 week goal is 16 lbs and I've lost almost 7, so 9 to go. I will keep working on my diet as the workouts are going well and I have incresed the intensity of my cardio work. I'm hoping for a bigger number this week so there isn't as much pressure on my last week to lose a lot of weight to hit my goal.
Finally after getting my diet back on track I'm seeing the results I was expecting. I lost nearly 6 lbs this week just by eating clean. I had a couple of small cheats in there, but nothing that was going to set me back as I had in the past. I will continue to focus on my diet and train hard. On my rest day this week I took my girlfriend up The Incline for the first time. She did great. This week I hope to hike a 14er on my day off. I still have 10 more... Go to BodyBlog
I weighed myself this morning to see I gain a lot of weight this past week, about 6 lbs. Not surprised, especially after totally falling off the wagon on my diet. I continue to train hard, but it shows how important nutrition really is in fat loss. After talking to my girlfriend, who is also my workout partner, we both agreed we really need to clamp down on the nutrition. Therefor we both set a goal for Phase 2 of Jamie Eason's Live Fit Trainer that we will focus more... Go to BodyBlog
I know I'm off a day from my blog entry, but yesterday was a busy day. I woke up at 5 AM and prepared to go hike a 14er, Pikes Peak. I went with a friend of mine but we didn't make the summit. We turned around after hiking for 2.5-3 hours. My weight didn't change this week, so I am a little frustrated. I have a lot of hiking to do this summer and shedding the weight will make it easier. I will continue to work on watching my diet close, minimize the... Go to BodyBlog
This past week I set myself a goal of losing 3 lbs, only lost 1.2. This week I felt I did a good job about sticking to my diet. I had a small pizza Wednesday night with friends and a couple of small chocolate chip cookies for an afternoon snack, had a craving. This week there will be no cheat meals at all. In fact I will not have a cheat meal until I'm under 220. The target goal this week is to lose 3 lbs. I'm also going to amp up the cardio this week to 1... Go to BodyBlog
I just completed the first week of the Live Fit Trainer. Even though cardio wasn't part of the plan I did it anyway as I'm really trying hard to shed the pounds. I managed to get in 4-5 cardio sessions this week. My intention is only to allow myself 1 cheat meal a week, if any at all, and this week I had 2. So this week I might not have a cheat meal which is fine. I'm setting a goal to hit 223 lbs, even though last week I had a goal for 222 lbs. I know that... Go to BodyBlog
