so i have been going back to the gym for three weeks now, i figure i'll make this my log. i weighed myself last night and i was at 332. i was 335 4 years ago the last time i lost a bunch of weight, but i had way less muscle mass and strength then. due to knee surgeries and severe pain i have gained it all back, but now i'm going to lose it all again.

i'll keep posting updates in here so i will feel accountable.

current workout:
mon - chest
tues - stomach and back
wed - arms
fri - shoulders and back

and cardio every day:
20 min elliptical
10 min cross trainer
1/2 mile walk to cool down

here goes nothin

Watching what I eat has helped me drastically. As crazy as it sounds, a stupid iPhone app has helped me drop 16 lbs. I've since put back on 4lbs of it but also started taking a supplement with creatine in it so I know it's mostly just water.

I have started my training for the Tough Mudder in April. For the running portion, I'm basically training for a half marathon. If I can run 13.1 miles straight, I can do the 11 of the Mudder without much of a problem. Once my long runs start to get above 7 miles, the weight should really start to fall off. I've also switched my lifting routine to make more sense for both running distance while keeping the strength on for the Mudder. Basically more circuits.

I'm 10lbs away from my first goal. I'm 15 lbs away from being at my goal weight for the Mudder. 5 more lbs and I'll probably do a muay thai fight again since I'll be in that weight range again.

A little tip.. back off the cardio for a while until it gets harder to lose the weight. You really don't need to do cardio at all at this point if you are watching your calories and weight training. Your body is going to adjust to the cardio before long and you will have to switch it up by either making it more intense or by increasing the duration (which sucks). Obviously, if you are doing the cardio for your heart.. feel free, but its not necessary for weight loss at this point. I'm just trying to save you some trouble down the road.

You can continue it if you want, but I would only do it 3 days MAX per week.

I'm assuming that was directed to Chris because I'm doing cardio because I'm trying to be able to run 13 miles without stopping.

You're a big dude.. you should just become a bench specialist and compete in bench only meets.
