Well Then.

That took quite a while didn't it.  I'm assuming you were worried if I was dead, alive, or still over-weight.  Well I am glad to report that I am alive and still over-weight.  I don't want to type up too much for now, but I did want to give a bit of a progress update.

Over the past month I have gotten back into my work out and diet routine that I enjoy, and it actually seems to work slowly but surely for me, so I'm sticking to it.  A lot of things have changed since the last time I was motivated enough to post on here but that's a story for another time.  The important news is I've been at it pretty diligently for a month now and I wanted to share my progress.  Although I won't say I've been perfect (there was a graduation, and I had cake.  Twice.) I have been doing well. I haven't even had a drink this month either, which I find is an accomplishment in itself.  So down to the numbers (who doesn't love numbers).

I have been using an app that I found in the Google Play Store called Perfect Body.  Sorry iPhone users I haven't found it for you.  It does a pretty good job of getting a routine in place for you.  Although the 5 days a week of working out seems intimidating at first, it's not that bad considering I can usually bang my way through a workout in about 20-30 mins.  We have a pretty decent home gym setup here at House Ironwood, but there are still a few things I wasn't able to do.  So I tried my best to substitute.  If you find yourself in a real gym you shouldn't have any problems completing this workout at all.

I started the month off horribly at a bloated 276ish, and ended my month at a solid 269.  That was a pretty good first bump down.  Now keep in mind that I have also started lifting weights again so that is with my increased muscle mass as well.  Judging from the pictures I took in Feb where I was mainly focused on weight loss and NOT exercising, I'd say I have made an improvement.  Enough of the words part, heres some ok looking pictures of a fat guy.
