Journal Entry 2: 2011 is Year of the Body

Submitted by on January 2, 2011 – 3:50 pm No Comment

So the damn deal is done son…this is the Year of the Body.   So over the next 8 weeks, I will be going to war against the lazy and love tire demons within.  Goal is to get to 175lbs toned, burning around 4000 calories a week, which amount to roughly 2 pounds.  I am currently 182, but the mid-section is not looking up to par if you get my drift.

Lots of commitment here son; I am pretty good at keeping up the working out schedule, my weaknesses are – eating and sleeping right.

At any rate, if you are reading this and care to come aboard, please…be my guest; a little bit of co-motivation never hurt nobody.

Workout: Day 2 (65 mins)
– Treadmill – 60 mins  (Interval with flats and incline: Speed level 3-5; incline level 6-10)
– Pushups – 25
– Pullups – 28
– Crunches – 90
– Calories burned – 994 (monster caloric burn); just shows ho
– Total calories – 1635
– Distance – ~3miles
– Total distance – 7miles

The back is not feeling too bad at all in fact, the nagging sensation is somewhat fainter…make be placebo effect.
