To be honest with everyone, I thought it was going to be a couple more days until I was going to see anything close to the number 220 on the scale. In the past, after switching up my weight lifting routine, I would usually see a little spike in my weight because I would be shocking my body. But to my surprise, that didn't happen this time. Now I am not saying that I am out of the 230s forever because we all know how our bodies can fluctuate in weight from day to day. But it was very motivating to see that I have reached that milestone this morning. It is very surreal for me, to think that I have lost over 70 lbs so far on my mission. And looking back on my journey to date, it seems like I have gone through a lot, in such a short amount of time. The last five and a half months have sure gone by quickly. I can't even imagine how quickly the next 9 months are going to be if I keep focused with my eye on the prize.
It is funny to think back on how I hated to workout and found it to be a chore to do. And now I can't go a day without having the need to get my workout in. I actually use working out as a tool to release all of the stress I go through on a day to day basis. Working out has become my escape from reality. Even if it is only for an hour a day. During that hour, everything seems to come together every time. Anyway, I can't wait for tomorrow's weigh-in, to see if stayed in the 220s for the second day in a row.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
