Wednesday March 4th, 2009 – “It’s official! 49 days 20.2 lbs. How? Why? It felt to easy. Things are never easy and I worked extemely hard. 1. to stay on track and be consistant. 2. To eat 5 planned meals daily and be consistent with my eating habits by eating the right food and eating frequently. 3. Not quiting! Fairly simple isn’t it? And not all that hard.
Week 8 214.8 lbs – 213.0 lbs (-1.8 lbs) Total Weight Loss 22 lbs. 8.0 lbs to my goal.
Wednesday March 11, 2009 – Not to shabby for a week where I ate out twice. To still loose almost 2 lbs is pretty darn good. There has to be something there about consistency. My metabolism must be on fire. Now that I am starting Phase III – 3 workouts daily. I may need to be carefull not to loose too much weight. 8lbs to go. Should be simple! Knock on wood.”
Week 9 213.0 lbs – 220.0 lbs (+7 lbs) Total Weight Loss 15 lbs. 15 lbs to my goal.
Wednesday March 18, 2009 – The results will be in a little late this week due to the Vacation. To keep things consistant, it makes sense to weigh in using the same scale. I plan to post the results on thusday when I arrive back into Vancouver. That gives me a couple days to cleanse becuase I know teh results went the other direction.
Friday March 20th, 2009 – Well, I weighed in today because I couldn’t on Wednesday. I gained 7 lbs while on vacation at Disneyland. Am I happy about that. No, not really. But, I knew I would gain some weight back. It was extremely challenging sticking to an eating plan while in Disney Land because there were so many temptations. I kind of took the road of “well I’m on vacation, so I take a break from eating right.” It probably wasn’t a bad thing that I took a break. It just means that I need to work really hard these last 3 weeks to make my goal of 205 lbs.
Week 10 220.0 lbs – 212.6 lbs (-7.4 lbs) Total Weight Loss 22.4 lbs. 7.6 lbs to my goal.
Wednesday March 25, 2009 – weighed in today and WOW! I shed the 7 pounds that I gained in disney land plus 1/2 a pound. I’m siked because my body is on fire. My mets are reved. This week is the big week becuase its the week before the last. If I want to achieve my goal, then I am hoping I hit it at the end of this week.
Week 11 212.6 lbs – 210.6 lbs (-2.0 lbs) Total Weight Loss 24.4 lbs. 5.6 lbs to my goal.
Wednesday April 8, 2009 – Well, I hit my first weight goal target of 210 lbs. I am extremely happy with my results. I am absolutely amazed that this program produced the results it did. Not only did I succeed in the weight loss goal I set for myself. I also recieved other benefits from the 84 days of Training.
1. My resting heart rate sits at aroung 56-59 bpm now! Before it was at 76-79 bpm. That is Awesome!
2. My waist line has dropped by 8-10″ I think. Before I started the training program as I said the other day in my blog, my kids could not wrap their arms around my waist when they hugged me. Same goes with my wife. She couldn’t get her arms around my waist. Now, they can wrap their arms around me no problem. That FEELS great! It’s one of those personal rewards that changes your life. Now I have another reason to stay this way!
3. I feel and look better! Isn’t this everyone’s goal? To look better? Today, I don’t mind wearing jeans. Today, I don’t mind wearing my underarmour. Today, I don’t mind going shirtless at a beach because my body is lean and ripped. Yes, I have more work to do! Yes, I now have a new goal to pump up! To increase my definition. To bulk up my chest and shred my abs even more. But I am happy with these results.
4. One last benefit this program has given to me and my family. By training every day for the last 84 days at home in front of my TV. What that has done is create an atmosphere of exercise in my home. Here’s what I mean by that. My 9 year old daughter joins me in the morning for a workout. My 8 year old son joins me in the morning for a workout as well. And they are serious about it. They train hard because they want to be fit as well. Sometimes I ask if they want to exercise with me, but 90% of the time it’s Cedric or Karis who joins in. As well, my wife has started up on a program too because she wants to increase her fitness level as well. Karen has started the Billy Blanks Bootcamp program. 84 days of HELL! No, just kidding. Actually, I like his program. It’s pretty good!
Anyhow. I am happy that I did the training. And I would recommend this to everybody I know and everybody I don’t know because it can change your life in 10 minutes! Just stick with it even if you suck at it. Even if you can barely get through the 10 minutes. Even if you are fit already. The added benefits you get will amaze you! The added benefits will change your life.!
My goal 205.0 lbs – My Personal Weight Goal by the start of Week 13 is 205 lbs.
