Well ladies and gentleman, Week 1 has begun and i could have waited until the end of it to fill you all in but i figured my experience so far was too good not to tell you about it. Last week i went in for my physical and body fat testing. brutally honest, my trainer was. i believe the words he used were “fat, but not too fat, i think we can drop 30lbs and 2 waist sizes”, so what will i do with all my freaking work clothes, that crap is expensive. what a p***like i didn’t already know i was over weight, now i am really motivated. anyway he gave me my diet parameters and gave me until Monday the 14th to get ready. Being a huge ny giants fan it was hard for me to stay focused on Mondays workout, i definitely ate and drank way too much while watching then pummel the hopes of the cowgirls, and come Monday afternoon it was evident that i was struggling. it took t minus 10 minutes before i was receiving a tongue lashing from mike duquette my personal trainer. apparently he does not share my passion for the giants. anyway we kicked it all off with some dynamic stretching, and apparently that stuff is harder than it sounds. 5 minutes into this thing i was gasping for air and praying that a water break was coming, and that was just the warm up! then came the plyo’s and thera bands. it was pretty intense, i felt like i was in a myoplex commercial or something… this guy never stops talking about lean muscle mass and fueling your body like it is a machine.Needless to say when it was all over i had not remembered working that hard in probably 7 years, since i was at Towson. it feels good. by the way i weighed in at 234 pounds one week ago, today i weight 230, its awful interesting what the right diet and a little conditioning can do for you!ok i will check in again next Monday. remember my goal is 200lbs by april 25th wish me luck!
