6 teen weeks and counting

{February 5, 2012}   Guest blogger, J.R.: Balancing the night shift with a healthy lifestyle

Soooooo with the begining of this year came yet another struggle with getting my yet older and softer self to the gym to get back into shape. This year a new angle actually eating a bit better to go along with it. I have started with just a regular circut workout. 15 min on the treadmill and 15 on the elypticall and then about a half hour on the free weights hitting all areas and always ending the night with a set on the abs.  It has been going good so far and especially with the late hour shift I have to work. I have been eating a lot better although I still have my little bit of pizza about once a week with the kids, I will never be able to give it all up like some can. Why work hard if I can’t enjoy the things I like once and a while to?  I don’t do Too many vegies at all, I just don’t like most of them due to either texture or simple taste .  Yes I am the picky eater. But I do like a lot of fruit and make an attempt to work them into my diet a lot more. I like my chicken and rice and have recently aquired a rice cooker. My breakfast is a small bowl of shreaded wheat every day or an egg with a piece of wheat toast. Then I take some Jacked 3D pre-work out mix and some testosteone boosters before the gym.  I do my work out then head to work and have some noodles for lunch. Dinner is usually around 3 am and consists of a small bowl of chicken and rice with a fruit and jello cup and a greek yogurt. I also pack either oranges or banannas for small snacks through the night. I head home and hit the bed by 9 am if I am lucky. I drink as much water as I can at all times. The biggest adjustment I have been getting used to is portion size as I used to eat big.  I am getting used to the smaller portions quite fast and the time in the gym is already giving me extra energy.  I will be moving to higher weights next week.  I feel the energy building, now I am looking for the waist size to start shirnking. I will keep you updated on the progress and how it goes as I am sticking this out. I have a graduation I wanna look great for in may with a special girl I wanna impress and a date in summer 2013 that I wanna be my best for. Most of all I want to live a good healthy life without having to dig out from under over and over again. Fighting Weight here I come. Fighting in tournament again in my 30′s here I come!
