I’m a 26 year old husky male. Human, not dog, I’ve always had a weight problem and have never had enough discipline to do anything about it. Multiple times I’ve lost upwards of 20 lbs., but something inevitably happens and I gain it all right back. Hopefully, this time will be different. Writing this blog will hopefully be an extra incentive to keep up with it. And I like to write.
Like the title of the blog says, I’m working towards losing a hundred pounds. Starting today, I’m at 266. I’d like to be in the 160’s, but for the sake of the title, I’ll shoot for 166.
My plan for losing weight, which I’ve done in the past, is just a simple mixture of exercise and eating healthy. I’ll be partaking in the Insanity workout (about 3 weeks in.) I know at my weight, it might seem like it’s too much, but I enjoy being pushed to my limits and it’s an awesome all around workout. Along with the exercise, I’ll be eating healthier. I’ll be mainly trying to stick to the Paleo lifestyle. If you’re not sure what that is, it’s essentially lean meats (grass fed), a ton of vegetables and a little bit of fruit. No breads and no processed foods. I doubt I will stick to this exclusively, with the holiday season and what not, but hopefully the exercise will help counterbalance any extra goodies I partake in.
I don’t know who would be reading this, but it’s more for giving me something to do and hold myself accountable. But if it all works, maybe it could inspire someone.
The main part of this blog will be just telling you what I eat and how I exercise, and also how I slip up and eat a doughnut. I’ll probably update my weight and pictures every 5-7 days or such. And hopefully, I can be somewhat entertaining in my writing as well.
Breakfast today was a shake.
Almond milk, almond butter, spinach and frozen strawberries. Not the tastiest, but not too gross either.
Lunch will be grilled chicken, steamed broccoli and grilled sweet potatoes.
Dinner will be a work Christmas party, so probably a bad day to start this whole thing…
Cheers to losing a hundred.
