100 Day Challenge

I recently decided to pull my head out of my ass and to get serious about my goals. In 2010, I lost 50lbs, but am I completely happy with the results…no. I mean, I am happy that I lost 50 lbs, and I do feel/look better, but I’ve still got a little bit more to go.

My goal is to be at 12% or less body fat in 100 days. The 100 day clock started yesterday, and my end day is October 24, 2011. By then, if I stick with my diet and my workout routines provided by Ty @ Team Cane Fitness, and Darin, and my buddy Jason, I should be shredded by then.

Right now I’ve made it a point to plan and make 2 days worth of meals ahead of time. I have 6 meals a day starting at 8am going all the way up to 9pm. The 2 hardest things that I can see in the foreseeable future are keeping my meals mixed up enough where I’m not getting tired of them, and making sure I have myself on a schedule on days that have or don’t have Dom – I’m getting severely OCD about my calendar right now.

So here goes nothing – I weighed in at 231 lbs on Saturday morning, and Ty took measurements – but I’m waiting on him to get those over to me. I’ll post those up when he sends them over. Also, I plan to use the “100 Day Challenge” category on here to post daily about my meals that I’m eating (with pictures), and to post up my workouts. This is another challenge from me – because if you know me, I’m not too consistent with my blog.

So anyway…time to rock out with my **** out…Paul Walker will be my bitch after this is all over with.

Getting to the Gym is the Hardest Part

Working out all the time isn’t easy – especially if you have a schedule like mine – there is always something coming up! In the end though, everyone CAN make time, but most choose to just make crazy excuses about why they can’t make it to the gym.

I’ve been making excuses for at least the past few weeks or so (mind you, they have been totally worth it). I’ve slipped off my diet completely, and as of lately, I’ve completely abandoned the gym and the last 2 sessions with my trainer. It’s not like I haven’t really had the time, I just haven’t managed my time as a whole in the best way, and then let myself make excuses for not putting on my gym shorts and getting to the gym.

It’s a short road back to “Fatty McFattersonville”, and there’s no way I’m taking that path back. I’ve got to follow my own advice and get my fitness/diet train back on track…TODAY…all I have to do is just get there tonight after work, and I’ll be shamed in to an amazing workout. If you don’t see any check-in’s at the gym on my Facebook/Twitter streams tonight, call me out!

Sticking with Fitness & Weight Training

So, it’s been easily 8 weeks now since I started training with Ty, and I’ve got to say, I’m pleased with my results. My second chin that was gone, that came back, is now gone again, and we haven’t done measurements lately, but I think they will be moving in the RIGHT direction when we do them again. There’s a lot of positives that happen when you stick with it, but it’s a lot of hard work that requires quite a bit of self control to be able to stick with it. I figured I’d share a list of some of the things I do to help keep on track…

Cheat Meal Dreams

So for about the last 2 weeks or so, I started a 12 week training program with my buddy Ty. He runs a fitness & personal training business in Chandler called Team Cane Fitness. He kicks my ass every week, and I’m already seeing results.

My diet is strict, and it’s not easy to stick to, so my mind tends to wander about stuff I want to eat, that I can’t.

I decided to make a list of a few things I’m going to eat once I’m finished with my 12 weeks.
