This morning I jumped on the scale and recorded my weight, the same process as every other day. But when I went to log it in My Fitness Pal, I realized that I had broken past 20 pounds! 

Before I started losing all this weight I was not doing the greatest, and on top I was also dealing with a dislocated shoulder at the same time.

โŒ I was always feeling sluggish and had no motivation to workout or be productive.

โŒ My self confidence was lower and I did not feel as confident as before. My clothing has always fit me well and I felt good, but with my stomach pushing out it felt like everyone was looking and judging.

I was feeling self conscious and insecure so I needed to get back to the more confident version of myself. When people look at me, I want them to think athletic instead of a guy with a gut.

During all of these weeks, I focused on my nutrition and keeping my body moving. I cut out all the crap I was eating and replaced it with better and healthier choices. My exercise routine for the first 12 weeks was walking and nothing else. I would walk for at least an hour and make sure to get up some hills as well.

Now in the last 7 weeks, I have been slowly making a comeback in the gym and training as efficiently as possible. My strength is coming back, the weight is coming off, and I am starting to
feel good again.

โœ…Now, I have more energy during the day from being in this routine and I am able to get up every morning at 5 AM to go for a walk.

โœ…My self confidence has greatly improved over the past few months, and I now longer suck in my stomach for photographs and regularly walk around without a shirt on ๐Ÿ˜‚.

I honestly feel a lot better and proud of myself. The funny thing is that the entire process was not that difficult and staying consistent was key. ๐Ÿ”‘

This was another quick and easy weight loss meal which took around 25 minutes for everything.

- 1 serving of white rice ๐Ÿš 
- 2 servings of mixed vegetables ๐Ÿฅ• 
- 150 grams of tilapia ๐Ÿ  
- Himalayan salt, pepper, and lots of Cajun.

Total calories were 423 with 37g of protein, 4g of fat, and 60g of carbs.

This is great alternative to chicken breasts when you need to switch it up.

Many people think eating bland meals at home every night is the only way they can lose weight, and they cannot go out to restaurants for lunch or dinner because it will throw them off track.

Let me tell you, when I am between work, exercise, or training a client, I
DO NOT have enough time to cook and end up eating at a restaurant or drive-thru.

๐—œ๐˜€๐—ปโ€™๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ?

This would be really bad if I was only eating Big Macs or Whoppers ๐Ÿ”, but there are actually plenty of good and healthy options where you can get in a
reasonable amount of protein with lower calories (Chipotle, Subway, Starbucks, Nandos, Greek Food, Cactus Club, Earls).

Here is a good example: the internet was out in my apartment building last night. I needed to finish some work before this morning, so I headed to a restaurant to eat and work. I could have quickly gone for a burger, chicken fingers, or even a giant plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Still, I found a healthier option on the menu that aligns more with my training goals ๐Ÿ†.

I found a crispy chicken plate, and it came with fries. Instead, I substituted it with grilled chicken (added an extra piece) and got it with roast potatoes and broccoli. It was both filling and delicious.

The trick for eating out is to make healthier substitutions and avoid foods
higher in fats and calories (there are tricks for eating whatever, but I will share that another time ๐Ÿ˜Ž).

You do not have to eat at home every night, and your food does not have
to be boring! Learn to make the appropriate choices, and you are good to go.

I have been in a bit of a slump lately. I don't want to work. I don't want to exercise, I don't want to cook. 

But, I have already made commitments with myself and others. Having made those, I do them regardless of how I feel. 

I show up ๐Ÿ”ฅ

When I started lifting weights, I honestly had no clue what I was doing! I just did some random exercises and expected some results.

I would just do a couple random machines, do some crunches, and then go on the treadmill or elliptical machine.

It wasnโ€™t until I started training with people who had more experience before I figured out what was going on ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ.

Take time to learn all of the basics of weightlifting, nutrition, rest and you will start to see better results sooner.

Take a look ๐Ÿ‘€ and see how your body can change in just a few months with proper diet and exercise.

I have literally done nothing special but just stayed consistent.

When I first started, I was logging my weights in an old note book but now I tack everything in My Fitness Pal.

If I can do it, so can you! ๐Ÿ˜€

What Went Well?

My nutrition and cardio sessions were on point this week and I got an average of 12,000 steps.
I ended up missing last Monday's workout because of the holiday, but not too big of a deal.

I am also starting to notice more physical changes every few days, besides what I see on the scale. My abs are starting to come back, and it has been awhile since I've seen those guys ๐Ÿฅฒ

Since everything is going well, I am not going to make any changes. I am pretty sure I will see a sub 150 this week ๐Ÿ’ช.

Here is a bit of a grocery shop I did last night after working out. All the essentials and will be good until sometime next week.

All of these foods are a great source of proteins, carbs, and fats which can help you in your weight loss or bulking journey.

UPDATE: I donโ€™t like Papayas ๐Ÿ˜‚
-The texture was nice and similar to melons but had a weird after taste for me.

When you are setting a nutritional goal, you need to know how many calories you will need to consumer to either lose, gain, or maintain weight.

There are a couple steps to this, but I will share that later on ๐Ÿ˜„

These calories come from macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates and fats).

1 gram of protein = 4 calories
1 gram of carbohydrates = 4 calories
1 gram or fat = 9 calories

Stuff like this is going to happen all of the time! And if you are serious about bringing change, you will find a way to get it done.
