Back for Round 2

Last year I posted a goal to lose 100lbs from where I had started at 308.   I ended up losing 60 during the contest, and had lost about 5 more after the contest until I injured my back doing some routines during my Insanity workouts.   Lack of exercise and poor nutrition while I was hurt led to some weight gain which I tipped the scales at 266 for the first weigh in for this year’s journey.   My goal continues to be 100 total pounds lost from where I started, which would mean about 10 lbs per month during the contest.   I know I have what it takes to do it, and then maintain that once the contest is over.


I chatted with several of the other contestants on Saturday and they all seemed very motivated to lose weight and feel better.  I have set a challenge to ourselves to lose more than the 402 lbs the contestants lost as a group last year.  I know we can do it.


My exercise routine for these six months will consist of 2 rounds of P90X2, basketball, racquetball, swimming, biking, hiking, golf, and softball.


My nutrition plan will consist mainly of 5-6 meals a day with 300-500 calories per meal.   One other measure I am taking this year is cutting out beer totally.   That has been one of my downfalls in the past.  I actually started my beer ban at the start of January, and I am not really missing it.


Good luck to everybody!
