Day 1 of Dropping my fat belly.

Day 1

This morning started with at 5:15 workout. The workout was tough and I LOVED IT. Hmm. How do I put this? When I have a good workout, nature calls quickly. That happened it was great.


Two pieces of bacon, one egg and water.

 Well I had a bowl full of sea salted almonds with me but lunch was early. I never got to the almonds

Ugh! Today my baby girl graduated from kindergarten. The rule is we go to each lunch where they want to. She had decided on Logans Steakhouse. Oh yea. I had planned and researched and was going to dive in some chicken and salad. Wrong answer. That precious angel decided to go to Japanese Steakhouse. Yeah I blew it. I had water and hot tea. However, that savory, creamy, Yum Yum Sauce is the bomb diggity. I ate only half of my meal , but I did not do well with yum yum sauce.

Wood cutting and Surprise

I have a friend and we cut firewood. One of our neighbors had a tree 44 inches in diameter to fall and we have been cutting on this tree for several weeks when we have time to. It is great exercise to load and split wood. The surprise? There is a field near this tree and I saw some thing moving. Curiosity will kill me one day. I investigated and saw blackberries everywhere. So I had organic, healthy, wild, sweet blackberries for snack. Delish! ( Love Rachel Ray)


The wife says we are grazing on some yogurt and fruit since we bombed at lunch. Tomorrow is a new day and there will be setbacks but I am pressing on. OH YEAH! Victory was no sweet tea or any soft drink today. Booyah.

My Fat LOSS journey

Here goes nothing. I am posting this for accountability and I want to see the journey. The journey is losing weight.
 Current stats:
 Male Height :6'0"
 Weight: 299.8 lbs
Pant size 42
That is me on the left with blue stripped shirt. I have large belly. This picture accentuates a whole lot more because I was doing the sorority girl snap back with front foot turned in. Yeah, it doesn't make me look smaller. Silly girls.
 Plan: Well I have read 3 diet/ workout books in the past week. So I am going with this morphed version I have concocted. 
The WORKOUT: (Mainly the ABS DIET workout)
 Monday, Wednesday, Fridays- Circuit weight training of whole body with four exercises for ABS for one circuit. (I am member of Snapfitness.)
Tuesday and Thursday- Cardio for 30 minutes. My cardio will be cycling. I have a roadie and love it.
Saturdays- AB training with a Hight Interval Training
Sundays- Chillax with Jesus.
 DIET: I have read the GRAIN BRAIN. It is an incredible read. My plan is 3 meals with 3 snacks consisting of nuts, vegetables, protein and fruit. I like the Paleo diet but I love dairy so I am going with yogurt and cheese. I have read some orthomolecular articles on the greatness of Calcium in your diet. Well that is the plan.
 My Goals:
6 weeks: 20 pounds I am preaching the wedding of the dude in the middle of the picturewith me. The preacher has got to be looking for the wedding. (FYI: The gorgeous woman in the pic is my beautiful wife. I love her and she is seven years younger than me. I am doing this because I want to be around for her and my two kids. Plus, I do not want her to get my life insurance money.) 
3 month: 45 pounds
 Christmas: 75 pounds
 5/17/2016: 100 lbs It is my 25th high school reunion next year and I hope to make the ladies in my class jealous for not taking me up on those dates. Here is to the journey beginning....PRAY!
