Re: Suzzer & Lozen's 2011 Challenge

3rd page? Holy cow this forum gets busy after the 1st.



This is a printout from yesterday. It's a machine at the gym where basically you pay $2 and enter a bunch of info. about your body size, what you're wearing etc. I don't know how accurate it is, but it should be accurate enough for weight on a relative basis.

My exercise plan is to do cardio, probably Stair Mill (not Master) for 60-90 minutes, 5 days/week, usually starting at 6-7am. Maybe Mon-Fri, but possibly rest on Thurs. and add Sat. Also work out 2-3 of the days before cardio - lower body with the trainer - and upper body/core on my own. I'm going to skip boot camp this session. It's rainy this time of year, and we only get 30 minutes of really hard exercise in generally (warm up, cool down, etc). I think extended cardio or fat burner zone is better. I will also be "bonk training" on every day except leg day. Basically you don't eat anything until after the cardio, then you have your protein and carbs. This is supposed to make you lose weight faster. I never ate much before anyway so I don't think this will be too tough.

The food plan is to stick to the pretty simple diet the nutritionist gave me a couple years ago - lean meat and protein, roughly 30g of "good" grain/starch carbs (potato, rice, Trader Joes sprouted wheat bread) at breakfast and lunch, and very few carbs at dinner (chicken or occasionally steak and salad). Fruit at breakfast and lunch, some carb control yogurt for dessert at dinner. And 2 protein shakes in-between the 3 meals. Oh yeah no drinking until summer - except for the Superbowl, and when I go to Tampa for the NCAA tourney in March. Alcohol and socializing are just deadly. I think I gained 12 lbs in the last month.

I did squats/deads for the first time yesterday in almost a year. Feels great to be doing that again, even though I can barely move right now. I'm going to risk hernia problems until my good health insurance kicks in on Feb 1. I doubt I'll get up to super heavy weight by then so I'm not super worried. The hernia doc at Kaiser said I could work out. I was just worried about having to go to the emergency room if it get's strangulated, and the $7k or so OOP that would go with that.

Re: Suzzer & Lozen's 2011 Challenge

I did one of these on the same machine in Nov. '09 when I was working out a ton. My lean body mass was 174 and my weight was 228 - for a body fat of 23 (!). So the most I can gain is probably 6 lbs. of muscle mass, which I'm sure will help me lose more than that in fat.

If I had done one at my worst point in about March '09 I would probably have been around 270.

Re: Suzzer & Lozen's 2011 Challenge

Lol nice sandbagging with the PM. I thought you were going to be gaining weight.

It was a little tough with postseason football every weekend and old friends' going away party on the off-week. But I really turned it on strong the last 2 weeks as far as watching the diet. And I was getting a ton of exercise throughout the entire session (generally 4-6 days/week of either cardio, or boot camp, or weighlifting+cardio).



So according to this I lost 9 lbs and 2.3% body fat. But like I said I think those Jan #s were a little inflated from a week of pigging out on vacation and just getting off a plane a day earlier (= bloated, holding water).

Here's my charity: http://www.jdrf.org/ I have a friend who suffers with juvenile diabetes. And I know they have a very realistic chance of curing it through stem cells during our lifetimes.

If you want I can forward you a copy of the donation. Congrats on the first month.

Here is the Pop I got for confirmation

Thank you, Ray, for your contribution of $50 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International. You are helping us move even faster down the path to a cure for diabetes and its complications.

Re: Suzzer & Lozen's 2011 Challenge

Nice, thanks.

I have a feeling this month we're both going to turn it up a notch next month. I have almost no social obligations other than a very mellow stay at my friend's place this weekend. I have identified several areas where I can beef up the cardio, or the time/style of training, or the diet. I'm going to incorporate some of them one at a time over the next few months, and maybe save a couple for when I hit a wall. You have been warned.

Also I'd like to see some drop in BF% next month for you.

Re: Suzzer & Lozen's 2011 Challenge

Just had a little celebratory BBQ lunch. Not bad for LA. Now back to the grind - grilled chicken w/salad for dinner.

Re: Suzzer & Lozen's 2011 Challenge

Just hang in there. This thing has been the best motivation in the world for me. So even if you lose interest and aren't really donating the money, at least fake it once a month for my sake. That's all I ask.
