Hi y’all. Ever felt like you could see the writing on the wall, and you knew that if you acted now you might be able to avoid some inevitable, and upcoming, medical issues. Or at least put them off for a few decades. Well that’s me. I’m a big fat 40 year old who has lifted off an on most of his life. A little more off than on as of late. I’m creating this log to keep me accountable. It’s so easy to be gung-ho for a month or two, until life gets busy or other work piles up. Then you do the slow fade away from the gym… But enough of this. Down to business.
This march I weighed in at 315. And at 5’10 I was tons of fun. Thru diet and a little perserverance I was able to drop down to 280 as of last week. Had my body fat tested by a good friend of mine who owns a gym in Scottsboro, so I could get a grip on caloric intake. Because If I’m going to do this I need to be doing the right thing outside the gym as well. I’m 18% bodyfat with just a smidge under 230 lbs of lean body weight. So I’ve set my intake at 3100 calories since I have a pretty active life for a fat guy.
Started a little cardio this weekend. And started the gym this morning.
Fasting cardio -20 min.
Banana and a shake on the way to the gym right after.

Stopped there cause I know I’m going to pay for it this week.
