I Take This S**t Seriously

You might recall that I said on Thursday I was supposed to get weighed but didn't because of my health, and that I felt I had gained weight. I actually even weighed myself at the gym and saw that I had. So I knew that I had to do something about that. I get weighed tomorrow and we'll see how any changes I made go.
I can't hear the word "changes" without singing it
So what did I change? I exercised my bloody ass off for a start. I went to the gym on Friday and really exercised hard at home on Wednesday and Thursday. I took a break on Saturday because I knew I would be working yesterday and that involved walking there and back, and I was tired, but I have exercised a lot and really worked my ass off. I also plan to go to the gym today with my boss for the first time in quite a while.
...Sucks!
Outside of exercise I switched up my diet too. I managed to shave another hundred or so calories off my food and somehow manage to eat a bit healthier. I still eat more than enough to keep on living but I'm down to 1300-1400 calories rather than 1500 or so. If my calorie counters are to be believed I had a surplus of about 1000 calories on Friday. So that would be pretty sweet. I guess we'll have to see how things go tomorrow but I'll be sure to let you know if I managed to do enough to lose weight or not.

    1. They tend to pay off for me pretty well and I'm hoping that continues to be the case.

  2. Awww yeah, you're on the right track. Keep it up, man! A few extra calories shaved off here and there goes a long way.

    1. It all adds up and comes together in the end. Let's hope it's good news. I could do with some.

  3. Sounds like quite the bit of effort you put in. That's surely to get results! And even if it isn't, it still felt good to do, right? Keep it up!

    1. I don't think I can keep this up on the long term. For a start I've had the exact same food about five days in a row and that's no fun. But I can keep up the mindset. Me and my boss have already committed to going to the gym together twice a week so that's a good start.

    1. My bike was actually stolen. Plus I didn't have one for ten years. So, yeah, that's why I don't have a bike. I only bought a bike to get my motorcycle license too (I needed to practice riding a bike) and the place I was going to get that at went into administration and shut down. Bikes are cursed for me.
