    Newbie here!

    WORKING TO LIKE MYSELF UNCONDITIONALLY

    Been watching the page for a little over a year, and while I never post it has helped with feeling/staying motivated. This is and will be the third and final summer I am going "ALL IN" to get in serious shape. Not saying routine excercise is completely out the door but life's short, not going to waste it strictly dieting. Through life and jobs and fluctuation I've been as high as 285lbs (6'4 24yr male) and as low as 225lbs. Currently sitting at 245lbs, with no particular goal other than when I see it I'll know I have arrived.

    Cardio:Insanity day 5 (Plyo) (503 cal)

    Strength: N/A till the gym reopens

    Assessment:Overall diet could use some cleaning up, but within cal. goal

    Never live with regret. One thing you never get back is time so always do what you want to do now. Welcome to the club.

    Hey gang!

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy TGIF!!! I've had so much done in the last couple of weeks that have sat on the burner for the last few years. It's like a great restart. However it's obvious that I can't spend money the way I used to till I'm back to work. Workouts haven't been as intense but that was to be expected. Right now I'm just maintaining what I got.

    Cardio: jog/walk- 3 miles (350 calories)

    Strength: legs- cable resistance squats, front squats, leg extensions, standing leg curls, stiff legged deadlifts. 4 x12,10,8, 6

    Assessment: Short ribs and rice for dinner.

    TGIF

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Insanity is the most mentally challenging thing I have ever been apart of. Rest day welcomed but I'm not the type to sit around either. Not sure if my view on calories needs correcting, so please advise. Right now I'm just trying to stay within my calorie limit for these first two weeks before I switch to hounding my macros. Having said that I don't completely disregard them, but I thought it was better to find my groove before I tightened the belt up.

    Cardio: Yoga+30min walk (275 calories)

    Strength: N/A

    Assessment: Meatloaf and potatoes

    On rest days, you obviously don't need as many calories as ON days. However as long as you're on a deficit, you should still be going down in weight consistently.

    Hey gang,

    Happy weekend! It's always great to able to fix things when you have some knowledge and tools. My lawnmower was acting up and leaking gas, so I finally got all the repair supplies I needed and tuned is up, replaced worn parts and sharpened the blade. Thing ran like brand new yesterday. And I bought the thing in 2002. While I was at it, I did the same with the weedeater as well.

    Cardio: walking- 30 min (150 calories)

    Strength: core- crunches, leg lifts

    Hey gang,

    Happy Monday! Well our April 7th date to return was snuffed by the POTUS (which is probably good). So now at least another month at home. I'll keep up my workouts though.

    Hey Guys

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Insanity is nuts but rewarding. Down 3lbs, but honestly looks like even more. Maybe its water weight, or minimal water retention causing an me not to look bloated. But who cares, looking good and feeling good!

    Cardio: Insanity Day 10 (Plyo 450 cal.)

    Strength: N/A

    Assessment: Chicken Pizza Roll

    Hey

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Recovery day today. Much needed, feeling lazy and not much ambition. Easy stretching/yoga and slow paced workout will be nice. Bad day as far as liking what I see in the mirror, but Rome wasn't built in a day either.

    Cardio: Day 11 Cardio Recovery (300 cal.)

    Strength: N/A

    Assessment: Diets getting better, not great still. Logging is decent. Sausage potato and onion dish

    Hey gang!

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy Humpday! Watched the Biggest loser finale yesterday. While I don't condone how the show is done and how fast these people lose weight, it's still amazing to see the transformations. Unfortunately only 10% of them will keep the weight off and the other 90% will gain back a significant amount of weight or more. It still ends up like most diet plans if it's NOT a lifestyle you want to live with the rest of your life.

    Cardio: jog/walk- 30 minutes (250 calories)

    Strength: back- pulldowns, bent over barbell rows, seated cable rows, dumbell pullovers. 4x12,10,8,6

    Assessment: Sushi for dinner. Nah I didn't make it. Safeway did.

    Hey gang!

    Happy Thursday! Had so much time on my hands yesterday that I stripped, sanded and caulked a door frame that leads from the outside to my mudroom. And today I'll prime and paint it. I was just going to have a company do all of it, but maybe I'll save some money by doing the trim myself.

    Cardio: walk/jog- 60 minutes (350 calories)

    Strength: arms- barbell curl, preacher curl, close grip bench, lying tricep extensions. 4x12,10,8,6
