Another recently discovered “before” photo; Leg day.

Here’s an absolutely terrifying picture of me that a co-worker dug up and emailed to me yesterday. That picture was taken 1 year ago (July 2, 2002). No further comments are necessary – the picture speaks for itself. Well, that particular photo has provided me with enough inspiration to get through the next several thousand workouts. 🙂 Today I’m working my lower body in the weight room, and it’s about time that I got started….

Back and arms progress – new picture.

I took a new picture of my back yesterday. This is the first time I’ve checked my back’s progress since the last time I took a picture of it, which was about three months ago. I’m really happy with my progress in that area, definitely some new muscle growth since April – not only in my back, but also in my  arms.  I sure wish I’d taken a picture of my back in January when… [Read more]

New grilled chicken recipe; Heart rate monitors.

I prepared a new grilled lemon and herb chicken dish last night that came out great! Check out the recipe – it’s simple, but a real winner. Yesterday I did a 50 minute aerobic-level cardio session instead of my usual HIIT cardio. I was aiming to average 152 beats per minute (80% of my maximum heart rate), but I wound up averaging 154 BPM. By the way, I use a Polar “A1” heart monitor, which… [Read more]

Long, aerobic-level cardio session.

With a busy Monday ahead, I’d better get right to my workout. Today I’m going for a long aerobic-level ride on the stationary bike (50 minutes @ 80% of my maximum heart rate – 152 BPM). See you tomorrow!

A couple of excellent weight training workouts; Staying dedicated.

I had a great workout yesterday (pecs/delts/tris). I think my pecs and delts – two of my weakest areas – are finally starting to show some real progress. I didn’t mention it on Friday, but I also had my best leg workout ever on Thursday. Today my quads, hams and calves are all still really sore from Thursday’s workout. Yesterday I was thinking back to when I first started my weight training program. I remember… [Read more]

Message board humor; Today’s workout.

In the “I’m not masking my jealousy with humor” department: Drifter, you definitely came up with one the funniest message board comments I’ve read in a while – nice work. 🙂 Today I’m working my pecs, delts and triceps. I should have plenty of energy after eating about 32098832 carbs last night. 🙂 I’m going to go get started, I’ve got a lot of stuff to do around the house today. Have a good day… [Read more]

Cool transformation animation; Cheat meal day!@#

One of the visitors of this web site, Jeff Carlson, was kind enough to create and email me an animated GIF of the first 199 days of my transformation. It’s really cool to watch, check it out!   Warning: it’s almost 7 MB. 🙂 Thanks again Jeff, nice work! I also made a permanent link to it on the main transformation page. Tonight I’ll be having my weekly “cheat” meal. I think I’m going to… [Read more]

Looking back at the last 200 days; Thanks everyone!

Wow, so I’ve been doing this health thing for 200 days already?! It sure doesn’t seem like it. That’s a long time to go without missing a single workout, picture or web update. I’m proud of myself for sticking with it. When I started my program way back in January, I knew I was going to do my best to lose weight, but I had no idea just how passionate about health and fitness I… [Read more]

I’ve got to go into work early this morning, so I need to hurry up and get my crunches and cardio in. Have a great day, see you tomorrow!

Getting right to my workout.

I don’t have much to say this morning and I’ve got a busy day ahead, so I’m just going to go get started on my workout. 🙂 Today I’m working my back and biceps, and I’m feeling good this morning so it should be a great workout. See you tomorrow!
