The Gym

Why I like working out at the gym:
  1. I get out of the house and away from distractions.
  2. The variety of equipment
  3. Can work out anytime 
  4. Walk there and back is a perfect warm-up/cool down
  5. The pool
  6. The hot tub
Why I don't like the gym:
  1. Some people don't wipe down the equipment
  2. Obnoxious people in the pool while trying to swim laps
  3. People on cell phones
  4. People who monopolize equipment
I think I just may not like people.


I was thinking the other day that I have always felt fat - but upon further reflection I realized that I remembered the first time I felt fat.  My mom was dressing Jen and I up for something and she tried to put her shirt (Jen's - not my mom's) on me and it wouldn't go over my head. And I felt like I was too big. 

I remembered my mom taking pictured of us after we were dressed, so I raided mom's albums the other day and I found the picture from the momentous day.  Here is is:

How fucked up is that?

The System

As promised, here is the system I am following: Burn more calories than I consume.
How do I plan to do that, you ask?
Well since my long term goal is to lose 1/2 my body weight - it seems like an insurmountable obstacle. So I am going to lose it 10% at a time.  And I have to lose the first 10% by December 1st - than I have to maintain that through December.  (I am already 1/3 there - fuck yeah!)

So I have some rules:

Long term:
  • I have to go to the gym 4-5 times a week
  • I can't buy a piece of clothing unless I throw away one that I have outgrown (ingrown?)
This 10%:
  • Ice cream and fried food only once a week
  • Drink 2 glasses of milk a day
That's about it - so far it is working well, so I have high hopes.

I decided to start a blog so I can chronicle my "weight-loss journey". I'm hoping to use the fact that if I quit I will lose face - and I hate to lose face; so it's an extra incentive for me.

This is what I look like now and I want to change.

So I have a system I am using - which I will post later - So far it is working well.  In fact, today was "a good day".  That, of course, means I have lost weight.

And since I choose to warn people that I may have adult content on my sight, here goes...fuck fuckity fuck fuck.
