I think I may have hit rock bottom with my level of fatness.
And I am ashamed.
I know better.
I have the knowledge to not allow myself to get to this level.
For twenty plus years I have read articles and blogs about fitness and nutrition. I even took an entry level personal trainer course.
A couple of years ago a good friend and I challenged ourselves to workout everyday and take daily photos and keep track of our progress.
We both had excellent results in a relatively short amount of time. In 8 weeks we both were a lot more fit than at the start. In 10 weeks I was amazed at what I had achieved.
And then we fell behind in our workouts. And then we stopped altogether.
Why the hell did we stop?
I really don’t know. Just like implementing healthy habits can actually be easy, resorting back to the unhealthy habits is all too easy as well.
You can make all the excuses in the world but they are just that. Excuses.
So now I am back to being a fat bastard. I am uncomfortable and I do not enjoy going to social events.
I overeat. A lot.
This has been a problem for most of my life. And I am a “sneak” eater.
I was like this as a kid and I do it still as a 41 year old man!
And I am a major sugar addict.
I know what to do. Most of us know don’t we?
Eat less and move more. Kind of simple isn’t it?
Veggies and some lean protein. Drink lots of water.
Don’t over think it too much.
So I am going to post some photos of me as of today. I have no shirt on and I warn you it is a sad and scary sight.
Consider yourself warned!
Don’t say you were not warned!!
Pretty sad I know. And yes I am sucking my gut in a bit. So the photos could be a lot worse. But I am afraid that WordPress would ban me if I let it all hang out.
But I have to do this for public accountability. It isn’t easy making photos of ones fat self available for all to see.
So today I am starting. Again.
- 30 minute walk
- 15 minutes Beachbody Insanity
- 15 minutes P90X Chest and Back
- 10 minutes Insanity
- 10 minutes P90X Chest and Back
Later I will go for another walk. I got an awesome workout/nutrition log for Christmas and actually have been using it but not consistently.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I will be able to start walking or biking to work.
Please join in if you’d like to post some photos and share any ideas you have about losing a few pounds and getting healthier.
