So, I have been trying to lose weight for quite a while. It’s not that easy, though I have been making study progress. I first started about 3 years ago and initially lost about 40 pounds. I was pretty dedicated. I ate the same things every day and worked out about 5 times a week. I loved seeing the changes in the body. They were steady changes and were awesome!
After about 1 year I gained a bit of it back, maybe 8 pounds or so. Not a big deal right? Well, now I am trying to really get ripped. Even the fat on my face was annoying me. When I searched online for how to lose face fat I didn’t find much, though I did find one site called Enformy that really opened my eyes to face exercises and proper dieting.
So now I am lifting weights 5 times a week. Seems like alot right? Well, I only lift for about 30-40 minutes per day because I work one body part every day. Here is my routine:
Then I do cardio at night. I usually try to do at least 30 minutes of cardio, sometimes up to an hour if I have the energy. I have been using the elliptical machine alot lately. It’s really fun! On that machine I can usually go for an hour.
Lately my running has been pretty good too. I run between 2 and 3 miles, and sometimes do sprints as well. That is pretty good stuff.
My diet is pretty boring though, and I do love to eat. In the morning I’ll eat oatmeal or eggs with toast. After I workout I’ll have a protein shake and then maybe a sandwich a bit later. Almost every day I have chicken with veggies too. Once you start to eat the same every day, you get used to it. Once I start to see results, it really gets me motivated!
When my friends ask me how to get started, I just tell them to start by cutting out sugar from their diet and do that for a month. You would be surprised how much that can help. Sugar is DEADLY in my opinion, and not only will you lose weight but your health with greatly improve as well!
