Day 55: Still at it

Well, I haven't been blogging as much about my 90-day challenge, but that doesn't mean that I'm not up for it.  I'm still rocking it.  I'm spending more time outdoors and trying to stay away from the computer, which is having a great impact on my waistline.  Today, I fit into a size 38" waist, which is a great accomplishment.  A year ago, I was a size 44.

The last week has been a bit more challenging with my workouts because my hours at work changed.  I'm staying later which makes it more difficult to go to the gym when the place is mobbed.  I'm reading about fat-burning workouts, so I plan on incorporating some new weight-lifting routines and I'm switching to the mornings before work.

My cardio workouts are going well.  On Tuesday, my friend Jay and I went to a grassy park and did some interval training.  It was a combination of sprinting for 30 seconds, burpees for 30 seconds, and jumping jacks.  The burpees really suck, but I impressed myself that I could keep up to a full sprint for 30 seconds.  We did a total of 10 explosive intervals, so I was hurting a bit the next day.  We have plans to meet again tomorrow afternoon for another hardcore workout.

I continue to refine my diet by eating less, juicing, making smoothies and eating small, light snacks.  Planning is so important when it comes to eating right.  If I don't have healthy food around, it becomes easier to get hungry and grab something less than optimal.  My goals for this next week include planning my shopping and diet ahead of time.

Well, I'm off to the gym.  Hopefully, the scale will reflect the same good news as my new pair of 38" shorts!

Be Healthy!
