First Day of the Journey of Eating Healthy to Lose Weight

My first day started out like most people’s first day when they start something. Now granted I have done some of this before, but due to injuries and health issues its been a while since I have been to a gym. Also i have always disliked gym’s since my football days. It always seemed so selfish in there. A bunch of guys and girls all focused on themselves.

I used to not like to be in that atmosphere, it was very intimidating, since I am by nature a very generous, and try to be unselfish in most of my dealings. I have come to understand now that I am in my thirties, that it is totally OK to take an hour a day, or even 30 minutes a day and just focus on your health and well-being, without giving two cares about others around you.

My first day weight was 354.8 I weighed in morning as soon as I got up. I ate a total of three pork chops (because I bought them last week) 1 Plum, I Calli Tea bag, 1 Fortune Delight, 1 NuPlus, 9 chocolate cookies from the Dollar General ( my friend was working on cars, and wanted cookies… I was hungry so I ate some) 2 string cheeses, and 1 bowl of cinnamon toast crunch.

My two boys, and wife also had the Calli and Fortune Delight, sweetened with SunNectar.  I make a pot of tea for family and we share it since, we are kinda on the lower income side right now.

Not the best way to start out my first day of this site, but hey at least it was honest. I will try to eat better tomorrow.

My workout was a little odd, due to the fact there were so many people in the Gym, I didn’t do the normal weight lifting. I was on a freestyle Bench Press with 135 pounds 10 reps and 4 sets. Then dropped the weight down to 115 pounds 10 reps and 4 sets. dropped again to 95 pounds 10 reps and 4 sets. Then I went and did a machine where I have to do like butterfly pulls to my chest, 75 pounds 10 reps and 4 sets. Then a machine where I had to push the weights away from me, and I did that on 90 pounds 10 reps and 4 sets.

Total Pounds lifted 5400 + 4600 +3800 + 3000 + 3600 = 20,400 pounds manipulated in the gym. Not bad my first day. I recommend you get a spotter if you are going to do the freestyle bench press, it can get a little wobbly your first few weeks.

I will start to learn the names of these things so y’all can duplicate them if needed, but like I stated earlier, it wasn’t my normal workout plan, but I still worked the same muscles, fora similar effect.

Well that’s it for my first day, see you all tomorrow!
