So, it’s been awhile since I’ve written here. I apologize for that, things have been an adventure lately. Helping plan a wedding (I can’t take much credit for planning, my fiancee has been doing most of the work), figuring out what to do about my professional doldrums, as well as trying to lose some weight… yeah it’s been kind of a nightmare. Still, with my tax refund due to arrive no later than the 15th of this month, I’m working on making improvements. Unless something has gone wrong, I should have a vehicle the weekend following the receipt of my tax refund. I have some velashaping that I need to make sure I can still take advantage of, put the down payment in, but haven’t had the time nor the funds to finish that off. I’ll give them a call and see if they can help me out one way or another.
Yesterday afternoon, went to the WWE Smackdown house show here in Salt Lake City. Unlike the Raw show I went to a couple years ago, this one seemed almost like a dress rehearsal for TV. Regardless, it was a house show and no real surprising results. However, watching the show, Daniel Bryan (current World Heavyweight Champion) playing into his gimmick of a role model because he’s vegan schtick. I got a chuckle out of him informing the announcer to announce him as weighing in at 210 pounds, and a vegan. Still, it got me thinking about veganism for weight loss and to help overhaul my lifestyle a bit, make myself a little healthier. I mean, clearly getting protein isn’t a huge issue if pro wrestlers and MMA fighters are having this kind of diet. So I’ve been kicking around the idea of going vegan in the near future. (Possibly as soon as this weekend, picking up a lot of vegan friendly foods while shopping for groceries)
If there’s anyone reading who has undergone this change in lifestyle, I’m more than willing to hear about it. I know it’ll take some work if I want to make this fly, but I figure between my working out and a healthier diet I could hit my goal weight much sooner than anticipated.
Speaking of my goal weight, I’ve been kind of sputtering, I’ve lost a little weight since the last time I wrote here. I’m down to 315.8 pounds as of this morning, which is more than the current low water mark of 310 pounds I was at before my most recent previous post. Still, I’m trying to reach the first of my 4 goal weights and hoping I can keep it off once I reach it. Anyway, here’s where I stand right now with the weight loss and my workout routine.
Current Weight: 315.8 pounds
Goal Weight: 295.0 pounds
Weight To-Go: 20.8 pounds
Workout Regimen: 25 second plank, 25 seconds mountain climbers, 25 push ups, 25 stomach crunches, 1.0 mile walking
Next Workout Upgrade: Monday February 13, 2012, +5 seconds, +5 reps
I feel a little like a failure, at least I haven’t given up… that’s a big one. Hopefully today is good for me, and for everyone reading this. Thanks for your time.
