Anyway, I've dropped 15-17 pounds since the new year. I was hovering near 200 for awhile. Even as high as 206 at one point. The latest time I weighed myself in my birthday suit I was 185.2. Not too shabby I might say. I think I graduated high school at 175-180. At first I had a goal of 190. After surpassing that, I thought, what about 185. Now I'm thinking 180. And to be honest, it wouldn't kill me to be in the 170's. It's taking a lot of dedication to lose this weight. Primarily changing my exercise routine to incorporate more cardio, eating less, and not snacking with huge portions. That was my recipe for success and it's been great thus far.
I've done a practice trial run for the race, (after lifting) and it was pretty hard. I tried to run a 21 minute 5-k and then swim a half mile. Back to back is a challenge. I could easily do both with a break in between. It's important for me to have this outlet as life/school has been overwhelming the past few weeks (and will continue until I leave for Asia - more on this in upcoming posts). So, I hope you guys are ready to bask in the sunlight this summer with your trim bodies. If I can be a source of motivation, I'd love to fill that role. Results build on themsleves and while I may be getting a little zealous, perhaps it's better than lethargic complacence...
