Day 15 – Taking Care of Business

Monday is for taking care of business. Starting off the week right is so important. Its easy to let the weekend carryover into the week. Fortunately I have a bunch of stuff to do. This is the last week in my Psychology in Education class so I’ll be working on my Signature Assignment. Can’t procrastinate this time. Gonna be way to busy! Getting the workouts in while I can and when I can. I worked on fasting in the morning so that I could burn some fat during my workout. Push-ups were tough but I got through them. Cycling was fun. I decided to work on some leg strength and rode the first half of my ride in the 50-11 gear. Definitely a leg workout. Doing this forces you to really work the down and up stroke to keep momentum. Getting up to speed is the hard part but it was fun to change up the workout!

In Medias Res – A Man on a Mission

Playing a little catch-up here. I started this round of Focus T25 on April 17th at a weight of 191. This was the heaviest I’ve been in over 5 years. My goal is generally to lose 25 pounds in 100 days, or get to about 8% Body Fat of what ever weight I end up at. The goal isn’t always as simple as a weight. Body composition is really the goal and a better gauge of a person’s health.

The first week of training went well. I completed 3 out of 5 days of workouts but also added in double workouts with spinning and a substituted workout on my bike another day. The weather was nice so I had to take advantage. My goal however is to not skip any of the T25 conditioning workouts and to use them as my base of training and fitness. Any secondary workouts will just be icing on the cake and get me to my goal faster. This week I hit all of my workouts and was able to add a few spinning sessions as well.

Now for my first accountability post in a long time. Today is Friday so I treated myself for a good week’s work as you will see by my nutrition log. The good, the bad, and the ugly truth about calories in and calories out.
