20 lbs Lost & No longer obese!
Yep, that’s right. This week my BMI finally dipped below the 30 mark meaning I no longer fall into the category of obese.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still very much at the top of the overweight category but still, yay me!!
That small victory is the result of me now losing over 20 lbs. This coupled with the fact I quit drinking and smoking 18 months ago, and that I now exercise at least 3 times a week means that my health and fitness lifestyle has dramatically improved!
– Hit the 20lb mark for weight loss

So after months of working on form and very slowly building up, I pulled my first 100 kg deadlift. I know its a not an especially great lift, particularly given my size but its a benchmark reached nonetheless. I wanted to get the 120 kg but my grip was failing pretty
I wanted to get the 120 kg but my grip was failing pretty early on so decided to settle at 100 kg for this six-week cycle.
I really need to work on my “off days”. There’s nothing wrong with cheat meals but they really need to be quite specific and aimed at a particular goal or outcome.
Increasingly I’ve been using cheat meals (or cheat days) as an excuse to gorge myself on all sorts of unhelpful foods. I could really do with getting it in check.
I know I’ve talked about it a million times before but it’s always worse when I’m not getting enough sleep. To that end, I’m going try to cut down on my caffeine consumption and see if that helps with my sleep patterns. My hope is that this will indirectly help me to keep a check on how far I go off track.
