Time to start

Today's Weigh-In: 217.2 lbs.
5-Day Average: 218.08 lbs.

Almost away from 218 (finally). I was getting kind of sick of that number anyway.

Today starts my alcohol-free month, and I feel really good about it. I think I'll be able to put up some decent numbers this month. I'm thinking I am probably going to start adding some additional cardio after work to help boost my calorie deficit. Just some light jogging or elliptical work ought to do it. I would do something like ride a bike to work, but I live 10 miles from work, so that would be a bit of a trek.

I'm also going to try adding a bit of light skill work in the evenings, to get better at some of the things I'm bad at. This includes adding some pullups and dips, especially, because I'm really weak in those areas. I'm also going to add some rehab exercises for my shoulder, which I hope will allow me to exercise without it bothering/limiting me.

A couple of people at work have commented on my weight loss, which is really motivating. What's crazier is that I've only really lost 12 pounds, but my body looks way different now. My face isn't bloated, my stomach barely sticks out, and I look all-around slimmer. I'm hoping to post some new pictures this weekend, I think there will be a noticeable difference.

Good to see it - let me know how the alcohol free month goes. I could probably do that starting Monday (post-Super Bowl) but good luck.

Looking forward to seeing you hit your February goals.
