Back to the old Grindstone…Hopefully.
This concludes the first real week I’ve started working out again. I was in pretty good shape several months ago, but stopped working out due to several things, a medication being one of them. This week I’ve been telling myself that if I can just stay motivated long enough to see some results then I’m golden. Once I get back into decent shape it should be easy to keep it going and perhaps even surpass my original results.
Weight when I stopped working out: 192lbs.
Current Weight 215lbs.
I’d like to get to 185 and maintain it. Of course becoming more fit, and even dare I say, muscular and defined is a great side effect. So, now I’ve got one week down and I figure at least 7 more until I’m in good shape, and probably another 8 after that to start achieving real definition. Of course, diet modification is a big part of the whole process and I’m back to eating a bunch of smaller meals during the day to kick-start my metabolism. Burning only a portion of the calories I’m taking in is tough…burning more than I’m taking in requires a real committment. Even harder is to make sure I’m getting fueled properly while maintaining calorie restrictions.
Fun stuff…but ultimately worth it. I was in great shape and looking pretty good with mediocre effort. Perhaps this time I’ll be able to really get to where I want to be.
I’ve got to be in shape for the Wedding…and the Honeymoon! I definately want to be shirtless on the beach!
