First day at work with Individual consultations. Enjoyed them a lot and I liked working with people on a one on one basis to provide any information they needed for their specific goal. Many people have never heard some of the information I give, so its pretty enlightening to give them this information.
Worked out at Lunch, then the rest of the day was social media and finished with a 30 minute group exercise session.
After work went to visit my friends at Virginia Tech. The drive was 3 hours and 30 minutes after work, which SUCKED, but it was fun when I finally got here. Main reason I came was to watch the VT vs Bama game. I hope we show up and keep it close, but with VT you never know.
Been eating the same way everyday at work. On workout days I eat a banana during and after training and eat most of my carbs for dinner.
Also, been leaning out really good here recently. I’m still in my fat loss phase of about 10 calories per pound during the day, but since I have been working I’ve really gotten leaner all over. This may be due to more NEAT, basically just more overall, unconscious movement that most people don’t even realize they do.
Really like the gym setup I got going. I workout in my lunch hour from 12-1 every weekday and take the weekends off. I spend most of the day at my desk, so I usually just eat lunch when I’m done working out. Its a really awesome feeling having an entire gym to yourself. Placing the workout at the time also gives my mind a much needed break from work.
Worked out at my work gym today. It was really nice being the only one in an open gym. I basically can do whatever I want with whatever piece of equipment I wanted with no issues and no one to work around. The gym lacks some Dumbbells, but I can just use barbells instead. It also has a cable machine with some really good tension.
Ate lunch at work today, which was pork tenderloin, qunioa and vegetables. I also had two scoops of casein that was at my work.
First group personal training session today. So just demonstrated easy examples for the clients and walked them through a workout.
I also may try to use my work gym instead of Golds gym and see how it goes. It’s definitely nice having an entire gym to yourself at the end of the day. Since my personal trainer/group exercise are from 4-5 p.m., I’m already dressed to workout. So once 5 hits I can easily just squeeze in a workout and head home and get there by 6:45 or 7 p.m.
Only problem is some of the equipment is lacking, but it may be just enough to work around it.
Just learned that the Williamsville Wellness provides a free lunch every day. Today it consisted of tilapia, rice, zucchini and tomato parmesan and salad. I just skipped the rice and ate the other stuff. Pretty nice feature though as I don’t have to prepare my lunch the day before.
Dinner will consist of chicken and vegetables tonight.
Workout was real good today. I have hit a massive plateau on squat though. I handle 205lbs like its nothing, but jump up to 225lbs and I just cant handle it for more than 4 reps. DB press felt good and my chest was toast at the end.
Had to stop by sweet frog and get that post workout insulin spike. Thin Mint, Cheesecake and Cotton candy flavors with no toppings. Cheesecake was by far the best.
Dinner will consist of grilled chicken breast and vegetables.
I wanted to get some pictures of me, back when I was fat to show to people that want to change their bodies. At my heaviest I weighed 190 lbs at 5 foot 0 inches tall in 5th and 6th grade. Nothing to be proud of, but looking back I almost glad I did let myself go, so I can learn from the past and only get better going forward.
If I had to describe my nutrition back then, it could be summed up by saying anything and everything was fair game. I also remember drinking sugary beverages with almost every meal and also coming home after school and eating very high fat processed foods.
I’m just glad I took the initiative at such a young age to change before spiraling out of control.
