Weight

November 18, 2014 by Distracted in Alberta

Over the course of my life, I have struggled time and time again with my weight. 80% of the time, I am a lean 200-pound guy, who enjoys working out, playing sports and eating healthy. Between July 2009 and November 2011, I breathed and lived fitness. I was a fanatic. I spent countless hours at the gym lifting weights, doing cardio and playing sport. I drank at least 8-litres of water per day and consumed a vegetarian diet which included rice with every meal. During this period of my life, I lived in a place called Paju, Gyeonnggi-do, South Korea.

During my time in South Korea, I walked everywhere do to the density of the area. After returning to North America, my routine, habits and diet slowly evolved as part of the culture reintegration. Over the next 12-months I would regain 30-pounds of fat. Soon enough, I had added another 20-pounds and tipped the scale at the 250-pound mark, my heaviest weight ever. Then a few months later, I turned forty. Which meant an annual checkup with the doctor. The doctor requested a few blood samples. Shortly thereafter, we learnt I had High Cholesterol.

Looking back over my records, the doctor was surprised to learn that in January 2012 after returning from South Korea that my cholesterol levels were exceptionally well. When he compared the two test results, he inquired, “what has changed between then and now?” My only response was, “Everything.”

It’s taken several weeks of looking in the mirror, talking myself through it and learning what foods are “good cholesterol” foods and what are bad. On top of this learning, I have been scouring the internet for workout routines which I can add back into my lifestyle. As well as find new energy from the foods I am consuming.

The biggest challenge will be sticking to the plans laid out in front of me. To keep up the workouts. To keep drinking copious amounts of water and to stick to eating an extremely healthy vegetarian diet. Over the course of the next 6-weeks, I am prepared to consume the following foods day in and day out;

Breakfast: Oat Bran with 60-ml of peanuts, raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds       Snack 1: Piece of fruit

Lunch: 80g tuna with celery, cherry tomatoes, yellow onion and 1/2-teaspoon Organic mayonnaise       Snack 2: 90-ml of  peanuts, raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds

Dinner: 12-ounce organic spinach salad with broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, pecans & red peppers    Snack 3: Piece of fruit

Drinking; 8 to 10, twelve ounce glasses of water, green tea or black coffee

Daily Activity: 30-minutes of cardio using a flight of stairs and resistance training

My goal is to lose 20-pounds of fat by December 25, 2014

Once my first goal has been reached, I will then dig down deep and find the necessary energy to continue shedding the pounds around my midsection! This I know will be difficult to accomplish but by then, I will have been renewed and rejuvenated. I will have found the energy source within myself and my surroundings to accomplish any tasks laid out in front of me. Along with positive thinking and spiritual guidance I will ultimately reclaim the stoic and lean  200-pound preferred body weight by April 10, 2015 –
