Stick's Quest for Fitness: End Month 14

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) 27.5 BMI, 19% BF
09/20/10 = 217 lbs. (-0) 27.5 BMI, 19% BF

Welp, at least I didn't backslide. Stats exactly the same as last month. Considering I attended a brewfest, a family B-day, and Mary's graduation dinner, I guess I should feel lucky that I didn't gain. The culprit this month is alcohol and desserts. I'm seriously thinking about going on a beer-less stretch for a month and see how it goes. My willpower sucks pretty badly right now. I'm not very confident that I could go very long without alcohol, but I'm willing to try. I'm going to a food show with Chef-C tomorrow where they'll have free food and drink for 2 days, so maybe I'll start after that. Hmmmm.

I think I'm doing well on the fitness side of things. Jogging on the treadmill longer. Lifting more weight and seeing my arms get bigger. Now I just have to get rid of my gut. I've changed my routine again to focus more on my abs and I think cutting the alcohol will help too.

Goal is still 199 and I was recently doing some calculating. At 217 and 19% BF, I am carrying 41 lbs of fat. If I lose just 20 lbs of that (about 1/2), then I'll be at 197 and 11% BF. Increasing my muscle will help those stats even more. From what I understand, over 200 with 10% body fat is pretty ripped. Would be nice. :)
