Time to make a few changes

Postby Boyda » Sun Feb 17, 2013 6:40 pm

Hi everyone, great website!!!
I'm a 31 year old guy about to embark on my challenge to lose about 15 kgs and get back into shape.
Back about 10 years ago i was playing top level sport, and my body shape was very athletic and toned. Over the last 6 - 8 years i have been enjoying the foods and drinks that are bad for you, and its time to make the switch back!
Im 5'11 and currently weigh 93 kgs. While i don't see myself as hugely overweight, id definitely like to shed some kilos in the next 12 weeks. My goal weight is 78 - 80 kgs by mid May - June.
Ive put myself on a strict diet in conjunction with a training plan which starts tomorrow 18/2. Its going to involve many 5 and 6am early morning running sessions, bike riding and weights in the evening. The early mornings will be hard, but i dont want excuses, just results.
Many foods and drinks are out the window such as Mc Donalds, pizza, beer and coffee. I will substitute these with porridge, salads, vegetables, boiled eggs, lean meats, green tea and LOTS of water.
Ill post weekly updates in the "Weekly Weigh In" section.
Ive never really had a crack at losing weight, so wish me luck!!
