... That is what I was thinking while working out the hotel gym in Barcelona Spain this week. Hotel gyms are usually bad and this was no exception. There was a two treadmills (one was broken), two bikes and an elipitical. There was a few dumbells, all under 25 lbs. The gym was on the outside of the hotel and had glass walls on the front of the room. I made it my mission to fog them up during my cardio workouts. Yesterday, a women asked me if would be ok to leave the door open. She needed to cool off. No foggy windows for that workout but I have to say she was really sweet (english accent) and a killer body. Gave me a little extra motivation!!
Yes! I stepped on the scale this morning, knowing that I would report in on the 5% challenge and I found that I had lost 7 pounds. I was a little shocked and pleased at the same time. I don't expect to keep this weight loss up. I know it won't happen and if it does than it wouldn't be healthy but this is does, in a small way, validate the TNT diet/workout plan.
When I started out a couple of challenges ago, I thought just doing a challenge would motivate me and help me get to where I want to be (didn't fully work). With the next challenge, I thought a blog would help but with the holidays I sabotaged my eating. This time, I am going with a working plan, taking before pictures and staying far away from the goodie table at work. The table was full of cookies and candy that were left over from the holidays.
I am into my first week using the TNT program. I am looking forward to reaping some of the rewards (weight loss, better health). My beginning weight was 217 lbs. I am looking to lose 11 lbs or %5 of my total weight. I can say after just a few days that I am feeling really good. I was a little weak on Tuesday night but I have read that things get easier with any program after the fourth day, I am now into my fourth day. I have done two 52 day challenges and have had some success but I am looking to really have a good year with the TNT program. As I have said before I am looking to be a "beach" guy not a "big" guy....
Born in the 60s, too big for the amount of working out that I do. Looking to be comfortable going to the beach next year.
I have a lovely wife, who is very supportive, and two sons (20 and 16) who keep my pretty busy.
