Starting over again

Friday, February 29, 2008

So, over the last half year I have let it slip. I'm back at 245, with just 3 months before the big day. With all the traveling for residency interview season and being home (eating free food) for the last several months I have gotten out of control with my weight.

This time, I'm going to try starting on a regimented plan. I recently picked up the P90X dvds and started them 2 days ago. My entire body hurts already and I am only doing about 1/2 to 2/3 of the reps they are doing in the video. Hopefully I can continue this. However, it takes at least 1 hour per day and I'm not sure I'll have that much free time.

Today was arms and shoulders with ab ripper x. I haven't found a cheap adjustable dumbbell set yet, so I'm stuck using my rubber band. Seeing as how I am incredibly out of shape, it did the job anyway. Ab ripper X killed me as usual, but I did do the first 3 exercises fully, so its an improvement.

As far as diet goes, I'm having company over tonight, so we'll see how that goes. I plan on making a french-style pot roast out of a whole sirloin tip roast I picked up from the grocery store today. I'll try to fill up on protein rather than the sides people bring. I am feeling somewhat guilty over the artisan loaf of bread I made this morning.

    Glad you are back in the saddle!
    It is great that you started off with excercising.
    Hope your night will be OK. Focus on the good company and not on the food except to check that you don't go overboard :)
    BTW, that bread does look delish. Just make sure you serve it to everyone else first!!!
    Have a great evening and weekend.
