Hello all. I know there are already a few weight loss challenge threads up on here but figured I would start my own because mine is a little diffrent. I am using kinnect, a real gym, and change in diet to get in shape. I have alraedy been at it for a few weeks but i will update my daily progress here for all of you to follow.
A little background: I am 23, male, and recently out of college. I am 5'8 and started the new year around 215 pounds. I started the new year really hitting the gym, cycleing, lifting weights, etc. I then bought a kinnect, cut out junkfoood, etc. Down to 202 right now, 13 pounds in 18 days!
Kinnect Goal: I bought biggest loser, and am doing a 12 week fat burning program. I do 5 workouts a week, each one for 60 minutes. in my 2nd week right now, raised to challenging difficulty but might drop back down to moderate. Goal here is to finish out the program. I burn between 450-550 calories per workout.
Gym Goal: cycle for 45 minutes and raise my bench press weight. Cycle for 45-60 minutes burns about 400 calories (guess? ive seen a huge dispute on how much a stationary bike burns). I try to go 3 times a week. Started my bench press with 135 pounds being my last set and could only do it 3 times. This mourning, I did 155 pounds ALMOST 5 times, really struggled and needed a little bit of help from a spotter to lift it all the way. I want to get bench up to the point that I can bench 185 pounds 5 times
Food Goal: Here is where im a little relaxed. I still have soda maybe once a week, but sure as hell alot better than 4 cans a day. Usually keep under 1,200 calories a day, lots of fruit, tons of spinach (in sandwhiches and whatnot) etc.
Progressive Weight goal: Long term i want to go from 215 to 150 but you need to take it ONE STEP AT A TIME. I have planned out smaller goals and I want ALL OF YOU TO HOUND ME IF I DONT REACH THEM IN TIME!! lol. Here is the breakdown of what I have planned so far. keep in mind, i made these goals before I started this process, so I am ahead of schedule already.
190 pounds: march 5th
180 pounds: April 9th
170 pounds: May 15th
160 pounds: June 19th
150 pounds: July 24th
So, 65 pounds in 7 months. Already kncoked off 13, anyone else who wants to try to keep up at this pace is welcome to join, or follow for support, etc, whatever. I will be posting before and after pics at the end of this too.
