So, it has been over a month since my last blog posting. I have continued to maintain working out everyday walking a minimum of 3 miles a day, and playing basketball Tuesday and Thursday. On those basketball days I lift weights as well, and spend sometimes over 2 hours at the gym.
I did hit a wall in my weight loss journey as it took me nearly 6 weeks to lose any weight. I stayed at 186 what seemed like forever. Then in the past week I made it down to 183. I started doing push ups and jumping jacks in between my daily game time. This pumps up my exercise routine to over 100 push ups a day. I'm hoping it will make an impact.
I must admit that I feel great. I haven't felt this good in a long time. I have so much more energy it is quite shocking actually. I was wondering if I need to be like everyone else and drink coffee in the morning. I am glad I didn't go that route. My diet hasn't really improved at all. I still do not eat the greatest, but I try my best. Today I had some oatmeal for breakfast, and then a low sodium V8, 100 grand bar, peanuts and baked BBQ chips for lunch. For dinner my wife Bokhee made me some Korean food with rice and veggies. I had about 4 cookies and some cereal. Not what I call a balanced meal, but after exercising really hard today for 2 hours, I couldn't help myself.
Anyways...my newest food challenge is to be held on Feb 5., 2013 at the Submarine House in Beavercreek @ 11:30. Feel free to come and give it a try. My last year's record was 6 minutes flat, but I wasn't fast enough to qualify to the semi-finals. This time I will work up a big appetite and run that morning and not eat anything until lunch. I'll be ready to will you?
