Well.... a new year, a new journal.

Current stats
Height- 6'2
Weight- 238lbs
Waist- 38

*will update other stats tonight

Stopped dieting, running, training and beach volleyball a few months ago.

It's a new year and time to get back into high gear. Through good diet and exercise my goal is to drop back down to 200 lbs. I've done it before and have gone down to 189-190 on my plan relatively quickly. Most to all of the weight I have gained has been collecting around my waist, which is a good thing.

A link to my old journal is below.

Time to get busy..

ate really well again today good mix of carbs, veggies, and a lean meat. I need to make sure, however that I continue to eat enough food before my body starts to think that I'm starving it.

Hey bud, what's up? My wife is doing the points thing to. It's working very well for her.

05-19-2008, 01:53 PM
Brute, you're looking like a monster these days.. Wheels are looking sick dude...

yeah i stopped doing the point thing awhile ago and have just been running and doing circuit work... with a newborne it's hard being in the basement lifting with music blaring and having her crawling and crying... she would get into too much trouble... lol the points are working for my wife though she's back to pre-pre pregnancy weight... so she's looking amazing.

hows the w.o. regimine going? still boxing? i've gotta get caught back up on everything with some old friends.

lol, it's hard to do this crap when you got a little one ain't it? Don't worry. You'll figure out the kids routine and work yours around it. Only tip I have is get a very portable play pen. I've done many, many workouts with my kid in the playpen watching me and playing with their favorite toys. That way they can't get into anything and if they need your attention you're right there. You might end up with 10min breaks between sets sometimes, but at least you're getting your workout in. ;)
