Fatty Spice

At 160 pounds I am the heaviest and fattest I've ever been.

I've gained 10 pounds over the last year that I like to attribute to emotional eating as a result of grief and hanging out with Fat Kids at massive buffets on Fridays.

I've been far too lazy.

Time for a change.

No more complaining

No more excuses

This time, I really mean it.

I've committed to an intense 10 week program: Farrell's Extreme BodyShaping

Six days a week of cardio and resistance training and a specific way to eat.

I'm going to turn myself into a muscle building machine

Today was orientation.

Meet your coaches, do sit-ups, push-ups, sit n reach, run a mile, get your gear, find out your body fat percentage, receive your manual.

My new bible.

I'm going to nerd out on all the info in the next couple of days and research my favorite places to eat out so I know what and how much I can eat when I feel I REALLY need to go out....

Starting Point

Weight: 161
Body Fat: 29%
Sit n reach: 12.25"
Sit-ups: 21
Push-ups: 20
Mile time: 11:03
Heart rate before steps: 94
Heart rate after steps: 121
Hips: 44"
Waist: 35"

Terrible numbers if you ask me!

Improvement is the goal, specific numbers to follow...maybe...

Yay! Go me!

A slimmer, healthier, more disciplined Spice will be the result :)

Day-After Update:

Holy crap I'm sore!!

Sorry to hear about the limbosity of your life right now. But it sounds like you've got yourself focused.

Not sure why you feel that you need to go all boot camp on your bad self, but it sounds like it'll keep your mind occupied for a few weeks!!

... and you might want to invest in some muscle relaxers for the down time ;)

Holy crap, there's no down time!

My abs n calves have been sore since Saturday, I have bruises on my arms from the resistance bands but I can't wait for the next class.

I'm taking out some of my frustrations on the bag in class. Punching and kicking are very therapeutic.

I'm 155 and I'm wayy too skinny. Also, I can't gain weight no matter what I do exercise/diet wise.
