Well ladies and gentlemen, its week two and I am still alive. I must say as much as I love the Giants they are putting a little bit of a cramp in my monday workouts. Its a good thing I only have to do a couple miles on the treadmill, some lower body and some power movements (but thats all!).
First lets get this off my chest GO BIG BLUE, we are Superbowl Bound BABY!
OK On to the workouts. I find myself more and more motivated, Just today I saw a post from an old friend and fellow blogger Hunter Lochte his quote was FAAAAAAAAAAT. Now this is an old running joke we have from our days at Towson. You see, when I was a senior and having arguably my best season, I was also playing on a recently rebuilt ACL, a broken rib in my right side and a torn Hammy. needless to say I didnt do much during practice, I think it was like 20 love face-offs a day and then I would hit the training room for some treatment and some stationary bike riding. It was awfull hard to keep in good enough shape to play ball at that point but I kept my stamina just where I needed it to be to get through a whole game (BUT BARELY) anyway I put on a few pounds during that time and Mr. Lochte and I would joke that it was a good thing my hands were so fast because the rest of my body was NOT…In short I was FAAAAAAAAAAAAT.
So how does that tie into today’s post?
Simple….I have figured out over the years that my body structure is that of one that can GAIN or LOSE weight rapidly! In order to keep weight off I absolutely MUST work out at least 5 times a week and I need to eat alot healthier than I did when I was 21. I am still right around 230 but I can already see the difference in my body…I am starting to see that “Lean Muscle”, that my trainer is always talking about, it just has not yet overcome the FAAAAAAT.
Tonight I am going to be sluggish being that I got after it pretty good watching the G-Men, but as far as food was concerned I was pretty good…mostly ate meat and veggies….not sure the Bud Light was too good for me (although they say there are alot of electrolights in that stuff, OK who am I kidding)…hopefully by my mid week post I will have something more exciting to tell you about, since tomorrow is my dynamics and therabands day (Tuesdays and Thursdays).
Until Next Time
