He explained to me on Monday exactly what I had to do in order to execute each day of my new routine. He told me that I will be lifting weights for a different body part every Monday - Friday. For the next six weeks I will keep to that same schedule. For example: I will be working out my chest every Monday, my back every Tuesday, my legs every Wednesday, my shoulders every Thursday, and my arms every Friday. And every time I reach a new week the exercises will change for each body part. This constant change will shock my body and it will help me lose more fat mass while defining my muscles and I am down for that! He also explained to me that I still have to find time to do cardio at least 3 times a week and execute my Abs routine 3 times per week as well.
However, I am struggling a little to keep up with the new schedule. I guess it is because I have gotten used to lifting weights every other day and doing cardio and abs routines in between. But now that I have to lift weights everyday during the week, I have to find a way to fit my cardio and abs routines in as well. It is funny because I have been focusing so much on trying to lock down the new weight lifting routines that I realized that I didn't even do any cardio this week at all and it is already Thursday. I think I am going to have to force myself to wake up in the morning 3 times during the week to do my cardio and abs, while still managing to execute my weight lifting routines every night during the week as well. All I know for sure, is that I am going to take some time this weekend to map out next week's exercise routines and try my best to stick to it. I am willing adjust and do what is necessary to keep the mission going strong.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man = 38 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)
Breakfast - 2 Eggo nutrigrain waffles with a cup of Light'n Fit yogurt and a serving of strawberries with brown sugar = Points 5

Today I tried to catch up with my cardio. So I ran for 30 mins on the elliptical at the gym. Tomorrow, I will be definitely executing my new Legs routine.
Day # 88 - Weigh-In = 257.4 lbs - I think my weight going up a pound since yesterday could be because of my new weight lifting routine and possibly gaining a little muscle weight.
