A few months ago I announced I was finally going to work towards being my future healthy self.
I’ve spent that last 3 years working on my financial future self and I’m finally starting to reach many of those goals. Now, the time has come for me to get healthy and be not only the financially secure future me, but the healthy future me.
The first three months of this year has been crazy. I have travelled to other states, gone to conferences, started a podcast, hired an assistant, started a new project, and volunteered more of my time to religious things than ever before.
I have been busy. I’ve also tried to take time for my health. I am no longer eating gluten. Though while in Ohio I was a bad boy and ate a lot of it. But, I paid for it dearly as my body now rejects gluten almost as soon as it enters.
I started juicing as well not sure how I like it but may get a new juicer that will be better.
I started running, then stopped, then started again. I was sick a lot in the last 3 months, and the pollen has been so bad it feels like you’re swimming in it.
With all of that, I was able to make some progress. And even though there is little change in the numbers, my clothes are looser and I feel a lot better.
Starting Numbers 1/18/18
Weight: 273.8 lbs
Fat % : 37.4%
Current Numbers 3/26/18
Weight: 270.00 lbs
Fat % : 35.9%
The numbers are going the right way.
My clothes are fitting better, and I feel a lot healthier.
I’m able to go with less sleep, not 3 hours of sleep “less sleep”, but I don’t feel exhausted all the time. I actually have energy throughout the day and night, in fact, some nights I can’t fall asleep because I have so much energy so I get a little bit more work done.
The numbers didn’t change that much. I could have stayed outside and sweat that much weight off in a day if I wanted to.
My younger brother who started after me, and at a much higher weight now weighs less than I do. Not really a negative but something to think about.
The Next 3 Months
Now that I’ve gotten the healthy habits down. Things like not drinking soda, eating more fruits and vegetables, and not eating so many sugary things, it’s time to really kick this thing into gear.
My buddy Ron has an amazing service where you just follow the app and you’ll get in shape.
I’m starting that today and will follow it for the next 3 months. I told him I don’t have much time, and would prefer to do most of the work in my own house and he came up with workouts that work with me.
