2013: lost 60 pounds through jogging and calorie counting
2014: Basked in my “glory” and slacked a bit, only intermittently jogging and counting calories. Over the year I gained back 20 lbs (225lbs total).
First half of 2015: Joined a HIIT bootcamp, starting 1 day a week up to 6 days a week. Started weight lifting and did a stint of PT sessions. Also started fencing. Got down to 196lbs.
Second half of 2015: Moving my house and my job threw me off for a couple of months but I started back up with Stronglifts in my garage gym and a mostly balanced diet (damn you social outings!). But with the diet and training inconsistencies and the holidays I’m at 211.5 as of this morning.
Today: Started the V-diet! (more info in the next post)
The last 3 years I’ve spent learning about fitness, nutrition, motivation, determination and myself. I’m ready to reach my goals in 2016.
