@ 38%

After going to the gym for the past few weeks I feel that I’m getting into better shape but I didn’t take any real measurements except for my weight. I dropped from 106.7 KG to 103.1 since the last week of March which isn’t too bad progress since I haven’t changed my eating habits too much. Then the other day the trainer at Inspire wanted to take detailed measurements meaning all kinds of ridiculous percentages.

The one number that shocked me is that I am 37.8% fat or 38%, meaning I am more then 1/3 blubber. That is just ridiculous, I was honestly flabbergasted, shocked, I didn’t think of my self as fat, more like big boned! lol! Still I was a bit shocked, I knew that I was working out and trying to be healthier, gain strength, but never thought of myself as that fat. I’m probably going to step it up at the gym and try to reduce the amount of food I eat, the key word being here is try.

Pushing Through

The last few weeks have been a bit hectic with work family and also getting a bit of the flu which I decided to fight off with a combination of drugs instead of waiting it out. Through out all of this I have been consistent about two things, riding my motorcycle and going to the gym. Recently I have been going to the gym three times a week, consistently and I’m trying to stick to it.

I have really checked the scale over the last three weeks but my motorcycle jackets fit me better if that isn’t an indication then I don’t, well at least I’m happy. I don’t have a lot of time but I try to stick to a schedule with the gym, at least three times a week, I try for four if I am lucky. Usually there is a social event I have to go to or something that comes up but I have managed to keep things consistent.

The one thing about working out is that by the time I am done I black out at night and the last few weeks I have been sleeping early. Not as much online time as I would like, especially since work has been getting very busy. Still its progress, but I’m feeling pain in places that I never you could hurt before.
