Even though I am in my second week of returning to work I still had a rough weekend after being sick so I was exhausted on Monday. Something felt off in me along with being tired. Instead of pushing it I took the day off and made sure I didn’t eat like crap which meant no gym and no 10,000 steps, which I am ok with even though it was the first day of my transformation. I weighed myself Monday morning however and I was 305.4lbs.
Yesterday I felt a lot better after going to bed early and weighed myself in the morning coming in at 302.4 so that was nice, but Tuesday was going to be a gym day, completely forgetting it was my mom’s birthday. We had pizza and cheesecake so me dieting was obviously not on par, but I decided no matter what I was going to go to the gym. Around 8PM I ended up going to the gym to make sure I went (even though I should be in bed by 10PM since I get up around 6AM). I did the full body workout (terribly) that I was supposed to do on Monday.
The workout consisted of squats that I was able to do, walking lunges I could not do. Incline dumbbell press, followed by chest fly, Lateral pull-down, and another lift I can’t remember the technical name of, but it’s the one where you sit and pull the weight toward you on a cable. Following my lifts which I was having a hard time walking just around the gym from my lifts I went on the treadmill so I could get my 10k steps in.
Following that I came home watched some TV and went to bed. Today my eating was more on par, however, today was a rest day so I watched a movie since I am hurting pretty bad from yesterday which is one of those good/bad things. My eating was on par today so I’m happy about that and when I woke up this morning I weighed 302.0 so that is good too. I know most of this is eating well and my wife is helping me with that tremendously, but it is still hard especially when I don’t get enough sleep (like tonight where I’m going to go to bed late because I needed to run the dishwasher so I’m waiting for that).
Tomorrow is going to be a big struggle, but I’m so determined this time and I’m not going to let it go, I’m going to fight for what I need to fight for. I’m going on the bodybuilding.com website so I can watch the videos I need for the past few days and I’m going to make sure I know what I’m up against tomorrow, plus I’m going to weigh myself in the morning along with officially tracking it on Friday. I think that’s about it. I just wanted to catch everyone up with where I’m at and so far I’m pretty happy with where I’m at, but we will see what tomorrow brings. So until then…
- Later days!
