I am currently watching the weather learning about the snow that is coming to the Chicagoland area this week and planning out my next few days. Despite the cold and snow I plan to make this week amazing. This is going to be the starting point of my journey and I am going to start striving towards my first goal.
- 5’9″ tall
- 271 pounds
- Stomach — 52″
- Waist — 43.5″
- Glutes — 52.5″
I am looking to lose 136 pounds in about 2 years. I don’t have an end date, but I do plan to use small monthly goals to pave my road to success. I am going to be lifting, doing cardio and following my macros.
I currently work full time from 1pm to 10pm central time Monday through Friday. These hours can be pretty exhausting so I am going to start this week with 3 days of working out. I like to work in 5 week increments, and plan to post body updates at the end of each 5 weeks. Some people prefer to do 10 week programs, some 12, prefer 5 because it keeps me on track and I don’t get bored.
My 1st goal is to lose 10 pounds by Easter, April 16th. This gives me 5 weeks to reach my first goal.
I have calculated my macros and I am going to see how it goes with my numbers. Starting tomorrow I will be eating 2059 calories, 134 protein/185 carbs/ 87 fat. That’s right, no low carb diet for me, I want to be in shape without being miserable. The only time I suggest going low carb is if you are training for a show, photo shoot or any other reason you may need to lean out in a short amount of time. I will be posting the workouts I followed at the end of the week and let you know the strength workouts, cardio and stretches I did this week.
As I progress I will be including videos of my favorite workouts, my currently clothing choices, shoes and favorite products that I will carry through my journey.
