On December 24th at like 3:00 in afternoon I decided to make a big change and turn my body inside out. All through the holiday season I didn't eat any cookies, desserts, sweets, etc. And since then I got a membership to Powerhouse here in Michigan and have been training 4-6 days a week, for 1.5-2.5 hours each visit. My diet basically consists of boneless skinless chicken breats (little to no seasoning and either grilled or on the George Foreman) and Tuna Fish. (no mayo, miracle whip, seasoning...anything. Just squeezed dry and right out of the can). I also eat lots of greens and little to no fruit. (lots of sugar in fruit) I am drinking a gallon+ of water a day and physically punishing my body every chance I get. The result... 22lbs of fat GONE!!! And plenty more muscle put on/firmed up!!! ***Pic taken today*** ***Pic taken 3+ weeks ago*** (cold, before working out my arms and shoulders) Stomach is looking pretty flat. Chest and arm measurements are getting even bigger. Calves and thighs have gone up slightly in size, but are almost as lean as when I was 185lbs and training really hard. They are hard as a rock. My face is getting thin as hell, too. I still have to keep crunching away at the abs to get rid of the slight love handles I still have. I have upped all of my workouts and cardio. I no longer do the eliptical machine for 30 minutes for my cardio. Now I do the stair climber (not the one that looks like an escaltor) for 30+ minutes at level 7-10. Talk about a miserable and sweaty 30 minutes!! Here's a pic of where I was at a couple months back. **Pic taken at Frankenmuth on January 29th 2006** I looked like a chipmunk hiding acorns in my cheeks. Like I said, just an update and intro. Thanks for looking.
