I’ve Lost Ten More Lbs. to Get to 215!

Just 12 days ago, I was 225 lbs. Now, I’m 215. Probably water weight, because I still haven’t noticed a surefire reduction in bodyfat, but who knows? I haven’t lost any strength and, if anything, I feel stronger. To attest to that, my mom came back from a trip last night and I carried in a fuckton of her heavy ass bags without struggle.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with me, I’m a 6’2″-6’3″ man. The fat I’m trying to drop is flab in estrogen-dominant areas like the belly, ‘love handles’ and chest. I’m trying to lean out and acquire a defined shape.

As I’ve written before, I’ve barely changed my diet. I’m just eating whole grain sandwiches now, with a couple of apples in there, counting calories and keeping my protein moderately high and my dietary fat consumption at a level that will aid in hormonal balance. I guess the biggest takeaway from all of this is that I’ve increased my fiber content, thus helping out digestion. Perhaps that can be chalked up to the 16 lb. loss since August.

Regardless, my current goal is to drop to 200. lbs and go from there.

A Shred Matrix Morning

No coffee, but plenty of caffeine (150mg per serving). I’ve been taking Shred Matrix over the last month and that’s how my mornings have started. Almost finished up the bottle. Peculiar and different from the run of the mill coffee and breakfast pictures? For sure.

Books you will see in the background: Waiter Rant, Room Full of Squares, Hammer of the Gods, Sinatra, Top of the World, Confederacy of Dunces.

Picking a Blog to Read

Finding an enjoyable blog to read is like running into a million bucks left on the ground. Well, not quite that, because I actually have no idea how that feels (or would feel), but I do know that I’ve never really sat down and scoured the web looking for a blog to read. I just casually run into websites through Google and/or WordPress and happen to land onto a blog.

I’m not a picky person; I’d like to think my interests are eclectic enough to help lead a path to find a plethora of good blogs to visit. So, with that said, my criteria lies on whether or not the blog can make me think, is humorous, ‘different’ and all that jazz. If the writer has a peculiar style and a way with words, that could also hook my readership. A unique blog by a writer with their own perspective of things that goes outside the conventional norm will attract me each and every single time. I find those types the most interesting.

And people that can use the words (or phrase for the latter) pulchritudinous and indole-3-carbinol in the same sentence gets me! Although I haven’t ran into anybody who’s used both terminologies in a same sentence. (Yet?)

The internet, and WordPress alone, is vast. My favorite blogs to find are the ones that are truly diamonds in the rough. They inspire me to aspire to be on their level. I’m just a guy that types his thoughts out, much like many out there in the land of WordPress.

I’ve Lost Five Pounds Over the Last Month

Not a success. “Weight loss” is a deception, and I dislike the term. “Fat loss” is more apropos and doesn’t show up on a scale.

For those that haven’t followed my blog since the last time I discussed this, I’m around the ballpark of 6’2″ to 6’3″ in height, and in early August I was standing at 230 pounds. Now, I carry most of my fat in my gut, chest and ‘love handles’, the worst areas for fat storage in men since they are estrogen-dominant areas, especially the gut, and likely mitigate my testosterone levels. I also carry a solid amount of fat in my face and ass, which don’t bother me as much, albeit I’d like to lose fat in my face to emphasize my jawline a bit more.

I was in the best shape of my life back in September 2009 and May 2010. I was doing bodyweight exercises, lifting dumbbells, utilizing my treadmill in the basement and getting on the elliptical at my aunt’s house on a near daily basis. I was also carrying a heavy bookbag around back then and was naturally strong overall. I was around 195-205 pounds at that time. Regardless, I don’t look ‘bad’, I’m just flabby, and flab is the enemy. I want to be a beast, and look like one.

Anyhow, by September 1st of this year, I’d gotten to 228; after a month of on-again/off-again commitment to a caloric deficit, I’ve dropped down to 223 pounds, and I’m not sure I consider it a success. I’m still flabby and don’t see any reduction in fat. As for strength, I haven’t felt any decreases, either. I can’t put the blame on water weight, because I only went from five bottles of water (16.9 ounce bottles) a day to eight bottles.

So I reckon it’s a mixture.

I should increase my protein intake to 1 gram per pound of lean body mass, but I’m not exactly sure how much lean body mass I actually have, and I’ll be damned if I go 1 pound per bodyweight, because as much as I like meat and other protein packed foods, acquiring 220 grams of protein a day is tedious.

I’ll keep updating and see how this goes. I’ve been taking Muscle Pharm’s Shred Matrix. In about a month I’m going to try out the new Muscle Pharm product from the new Arnold Schwarzenegger line Iron Cuts. It looks to be promising since the ingredient profile features agents that should fight the effects of catabolism/muscle loss.

Other supplements I’ve been taking asides from MP’s Shred Matrix:
— 5,000 IU of vitamin D (D3)
— Life Extension’s Super K (Vitamin K2 for D3/calcium uptake)
— Triple strength fish oil (2 to 4 caps a day)
— Juice Plus Orchard and Garden Blends (I usually don’t take products like this, but I got a box of these for free, so why not?)
— Muscle Pharm’s CLA (conjugated linoleic acid; perhaps a waste of money)
— Coconut oil (through capsules, the oil from Nutiva or cooking)

I’m still eating in a caloric deficit, and despite the ‘weight loss’, I’ve noticed minimal fat loss (as in none), but I’ll keep on trucking forward because in my mind that’s the only option at this point. Well, one of two options: become a beast or stay flabby, unappealing and mediocre.

Just a message to you.

Our relationship had substance and a story. It was remarkable, exceptional even. It could and should have been an everlasting union between you and I, but you destroyed it for temporary means. I’ll never understand why. There is no “why”. All potential reasons are baseless and illogical.

You told me, once upon a time, that I deserve better than you. Yeah, I do. But I can’t get over what could have and should have been. I inevitably, unavoidably encounter way too many nostalgia-inducing mementos – things — on a daily basis. Getting over you is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my life, and that’s saying a lot.

Resolving Junk

There’s plenty of junk in my life. Some people have junk in the trunk, of the — uh — vehicles they own or their derrieres, but my junk resides in my head in a hamster wheel-esque perpetual cycle.

I’ve found that a clean, tidy and organized bedroom can help alleviate the junk in my mind. See, I spend most of my time in my bedroom. I’ve got my computer, television (just for sports, occasional gaming and shows like Dexter (ended), Ray Donovan (season one has ended) and Breaking Bad (series will end tonight), bookshelf, fragrances, DVDs and free weights (dumbbells). This is my main domain.

The act of vacuuming, dusting and regular cleaning off the surfaces of my dresser, desk, bookshelf and other miscellaneous things is therapeutic. As a man and unfortunate perfectionist that is in the near OCD echelons when it comes to cleanliness, getting rid of useless junk that’s in the way and cleaning is a bit of a success, provides enjoyment and allows me to pat myself on the back, either forgetting about the junk that’s in the perpetual cycle in my mind or resolving it for a little while with this self-aware success.

Anything can be considered junk: depression, bad friends, parasite-like people in your life, physical things laying around in your house that you don’t need or use. That’s undoubtedly junk!
