There are exactly 10 days left of my Weight Loss Challenge. It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 months already. I’ve learned a lot about myself and I’ve had a lot of fun. I’ve also been thinking about what I’m going to do once this challenge is over.
What I do next will need to address the elephant in the room. How am I going to maintain this weight loss so I don’t wind up doing yet another Weight Loss Challenge in a few years.
Stay tuned to find out what I plan on doing. For now, though, the challenge is not yet finished. I have 10 days to get down to 170 lbs. Last weigh in was 178.2. The reality is, I’m not going to make it to 170 lbs and I’m ok with that, but I do still want to get there. So do I extend the weight loss challenge beyond 180 days, or do I start a new one? I’m leaning towards just continuing with the challenge I’m on and extending it. I don’t see the point of starting a new one since I’m not really starting a new en-devour. What are your thoughts fine reader? What would you do?
Last, I wanted to tell everyone about my workout last night. Namely, because it was awesome. I just wish I could workout like this everyday, and not just once or twice a week.
Went in late to the gym (around 8:30pm). Here’s how the workout went.
- 6 Sets Bicep Curls – Dumbbells
- 3 Sets Tricep Curls – Dumbbell
- 2 Sets One Are Row – Dumbbell
- 3 Sets Bench Press
- 15 Minutes Rowing Machine
- 30 seconds – 30 SPM
- 120 seconds – 34+ SPM
- 4 Sets Bicep Curls – Curl Bar
- 3 Sets Bench Press
- 1 Set Tricep Curl – Dumbell (I died of tiredness)
- 20 Laps Swimming – 500 Yards @ 22 Minutes (don’t laugh, it’s the best I can do)
I was so happy with my workout. I felt so good going home after that workout. As I always state, my weight lifting is by no means anything you’re going to look at and think “This guy is an animal, he could probably lift an entire house with one arm) but it’s no walk in the park either. As you saw on the last tricep curl, I lost all energy in my arms. I was done. The swimming was, as has been conveyed before, a struggle between life and death, good versus evil. Luckily, I prevailed, I lived to see another day, so what am I going to do with this additional day I’ve been given? Sounds like we’re celebrating my youngest’ 1st birthday tonight, so that’s what I’m doing.
Have a great day everyone. Good luck with all your weight loss/maintenance goals. Stay healthy and happy and we’ll see you again.
