At The Gym – Week 10

0

Another week in the books. This is my 10th week of faithfully going to the gym and eating correctly. Lets take a retrospect of where I started this year. I weighed myself July 30, 2021 and I was 216lbs on my old crappy scale. We know based on tests between the old scale and the new digital scale is 7lbs. So essentially, I weighed 223lbs.

10 weeks have gone by and I am pushing myself along with 3-5 days at the gym a week and spent September being about 90% whole natural food based. That is pretty good when just 7 months early, I didn’t care and ate a large bag of Doritos in one sitting. Today my weight is 216.6 on the real scale. That is 7 pounds down in 10 weeks.

I feel much better. And that is ultimately what it is about. Feeling better physically and mentally. So here is my gym workout for the week.

Today, I took the day off because the kittens woke up us early before the gym opened and we just went to work. Again, Saturday is essentially a non-work out day. Saturday is supposed to be raining, so I don’t foresee a workout unless I go to the gym in the afternoon. But I dislike that because I never know what my trainer will give me on Sunday. I don’t want whatever muscles he wants to use be burnt out.
