Day 85 Mission 1 Complete!

•January 7, 2009 • 14 Comments

Mission 1 is complete! I found a program to make decent before and after pictures. Finally the end to step one of a life long journey! I lost 31.2 lbs(14.2 kg) and just under 10% body fat! The work was hard, but extremely rewarding! I’m going to take a week or so off from the intense training and ready myself for the RTP TS!! I want to reread everything Adam has put together and make sure I have everything in order so I can go into it at a full sprint. I will still be eating healthy and doing some cardio so I don’t lose the progress I’ve made, but the two-a-day workouts are over for a week or two. Thanks again to everyone who encouraged me and kept me going when I really didn’t feel motivated. The blogging and accountability system that is in place here is the ONLY reason Mission 1 didn’t turn out like all the other diets I have tried in the past. Thank you everyone, and good luck with your transformations!



Day 62

Today will be my last shirtless picture until January 5th or 6th. I am going on a 20 day shred until then. Thats when the biggest loser contest will be over. I’m not sure the exact day it will end but it’s one of those days. Until then I’m am going to eat perfect, and do two-a-days to shred the absolute most fat that I can. After that, my diet will change to eating more carbs and doing a lot more strength training than I am right now.

Has anyone ever seen an expresso fitness bike? It is an exercise bike that has a tv built into it that lets you ride on different trails and races. It’s pretty cool. Here is a link to a video about it:

Shred on everyone!

Sorry I haven’t been on here much but I’m working a lot of hours this week. I had one day off on Thursday and won’t be back home until Monday night. I don’t have Internet access here right now except on my phone. It makes it a real hassle to do a lot of typing. I’m still eating right and getting my workouts in. I’ll post again Monday. Good luck everyone.

Day 60

Zero Day

Day 57

•December 11, 2008 • 3 Comments

I had a great day today! I got to spend some time with my family did a little bit of Christmas shopping. I finally got the Christmas lights put up on the house. I love the way they look, but can’t stand putting them up or taking them down. I guess that’s a cheap price to pay though for the end result.

I got in a pretty good workout today. I got a membership to the recreation center here since it’s snowy and icy out now. I don’t want to run on icy streets or in the cold. It’s pretty cheap. Only $10 per month and no contract! I did 20 minutes on the treadmill, 20 minutes on the eliptical, and the aerobic circuit training Carlos gave me. Thanks again Carlos, it’s really a great workout.

All 5 meals were on time, and about 2400 calories total.

Celina, you said you wanted to see some of my fire training. I don’t have any videos of it but here is a link to a video of the fire department I work for. I am in it at 2:10. I’m on the top of the ladder helping my rookie cut a hole in the roof to let the heat and fire out of the attic.

Shred on everyone!


Day 55

•December 9, 2008 • 6 Comments

I missed my morning workout because I had fire training all day. I’ll get my evening workout started in an hour or so. I had a bagel and banana for breakfast, a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch, an orange for a snack, and I just finished eating a steak and small baked potatoe.

With being sick and not working out as much as I’d like, my weight is starting to come back up. I went from 168 a few days ago to 172 today. Oh well, it’s not that much.

I’m getting ready to start a 20 day shred to finish off this 3 month biggest loser contest. I’m not sure the exact day it ends. It sometime around January 5. That will be the end of mission 1 and I’ll be ready to start mission 2. Mission 2 is going to focus more on building muscle not just losing fat. As soon as that 20 days starts I’m going to start posting daily weights and what I ate all day to give myself a little more accountability. Shred on everyone!


Day 53

I’m starting to feel a little better today. This cold just won’t go away. I left work early yesterday to go to the doctor. He said my cold isn’t viral but bacterial so he gave me some antibiotics to hopefully clear it up. I did a three mile run in the morning and half of the circuit training workout Carlos gave me, but started to get light headed and dizzy. That’s when I decided to go home for the day. I shouldn’t be driving a huge fire truck like that!

Today I got in a three mile run. I was pretty tired and dragging so I skipped the circuit training until I’m feeling a little better. I’m still eating good and drinking lots of water, I just don’t feel ready to do much more than a little jogging or bike riding right now. Hope everyone else is doing great. Shred on!

Day 50

I had a pretty good day today. I’m a little sore from HIT circuit training yesterday. I ran 3 1/2 miles and took a rest from weights today. I’ll be back at them tomorrow. I didn’t get a morning workout in because I was working EMS today, but I ate pretty well and got my evening workout in. Shred on everyone!
