Stick's Quest for Fitness: End Month 13

07/20/09 = 243 lbs(start) 30.8 BMI
07/20/10 = 215 lbs.(-28) 27.3 BMI, 18.8% Body Fat
08/21/10 = 217 lbs. (+2) 27.6 BMI, 19% BF

Gained 2 pounds overall for the month. I was down to 213 at on point, but I blame some major eating & drinking in Reno for 4 days and a big Mexican lunch on 8/19 for the gain. So I'm not too disappointed considering the enjoyment trade off I had. It would be worse if I was surprised by the gain. I guess it really helps the positivity and motivation when you are prepared for setbacks. I should have no problem losing more than 2 lbs this month.

I don't have any trips coming up, but I do have a brewfest on 9/18 that I want to go to. That's only 2 days prior to my reporting day (20th of every month). I guess I could tack on a day like I did this month. We'll see.

I've changed my gym workout routine again to be more intense and I really think I'm seeing good results. I start with 5-7 minutes of cardio to get the heart rate up. Then some taxing of the abs and lats. Then about 20 minutes of weight training on arms, chest, lats, and abs. Then about 10 minutes of leg work. Then another 5 minutes of cardio to finish. I try to do it all in a circuit to keep the heart rate somewhat high the whole time. It takes about 40-45 minutes and I'm up to 6 days a week. I'm also tanning 5-6 days a week, so the overall look is pretty good. I can really see definition in my legs, arms, and chest. My trouble spot is my gut, but I think I'm still staying positive about it.

I just have to watch the diet a bit more and stay the course with the gym work. No problem.
