Back in January I thought I would list some goals for the year and these were...
Weight - 231
Waist (around belly button) - 34"
3 mile run - 21 mins
10k run - 45 mins
Curls - 135lbs
Shoulder press - 225lbs
Incline row - 315lbs
Bench press - 315lbs
Squat - 405lbs
Dead lifts - 495lbs
I am currently 6ft 2" and weigh 250 lbs
In all honesty, I am not concerned about how much I weigh so tempted to remove the weight goal.
I started the year well, in the first time in years I cleaned my diet up, no alcohol, no junk food, sweets etc.., went to the gym regularly, lifts went up and i dropped 10lbs in a month. However, a family emergency came up and I got knocked off course and for the last couple of months I have been back to my old ways.
My laziness has never been a problem, I had a decent metabolism and never seemed to put much fat on however since turning 30 things have started to change. I will post current pics soon.
I also remain relatively fit despite no activity, as an example, when I ran for the first time in years in February I ran 3 miles in 22.30 minutes and the following week I ran 10k in 53.05 which isn't bad for a 250lb man.
However it makes me think what I could achieve with a bit of commitment and willpower.
As well as my end of year goals, I have a holiday in Mauritius in just 8 weeks time and I plan to get married April/May next year so short, medium and long term goals set.
8 weeks isn't long and will be doing my best to get into some sort of shape prior to that. Problems on the horizon include 3 weekends away in London back to back in May. Friends, friends and the rugby 7's so fun, expensive and potentially damaging times ahead.
However I sit here typing with 11 days off thanks to bank holidays, a royal wedding and 3 days annual leave - I am hoping to really use this time to get myself back on track.
At this time, I am not taking any supplements bar the occasional protein shake. My thought process is that I should sort my diet out before I start going down this path - though this make be a flawed thought process.
