Six Months To Go

#1 Postby Jason » Tue Sep 02, 2008 11:27 pm

My goal is to loose all or at least most of my excess bodyfat by July 1st
I'm guessing about 50 pounds or 4-5 inches
This is how I will do it: Clean diet and lots of treadmill miles.
Try to ride the treadmill at least 10 hours per week.
There will be a little weight training as well.

My Diet:
Mostly Veggies and Fruits, some nuts and seeds.
Greens Smoothies and Fresh Juice.
4 quarts of fluids per day, either juice or filtered water.

My Goal:
To wear my Levi 501 jeans that I still have from Hi School.

Hey that's great ! For how long you want to do the juicing and diet ? Juicing is great but whole foods too. A diet consisting of only raw fruits and greens is to me the healthiest and best way to lose weight. Eat enough to have energy for training. You can read Lean & Green journal and mine, we did a diet of juicing a few weeks ago.

Aside from the obvious ones (carrots, beets, apples) I like to juice kohlrabbi, brussel sprouts, broccoli, rutabaga, turnips, among other things. I've tried onions and garlic too and it was nasty. I think you can have a little of them though. I hear people are juicing sprouts too.

I've wondered about broccoli and was going to try it.
I'm sure the onion and garlic juice is nastier than it sounds
I'll save the onions for soup and the garlic for hummus

I want to make it that way
After I bought my juicer I used it for a while, then it did more dust collecting that actual juicing

Well after a couple months of laziness, I'm finally getting off my butt.

It's feeling better and I've been doing light weights.


Breakfast: 2 bananas

Morning Inclined Treadmill: 60 minutes

Eats: Raisins, ABC Juice, more juice

Workout: 10 facing wall squats, 10 goblet squats, 10 overhead squats

2 bananas and 40 minutes on the inclined treadmill

I went to a " Lift " class at the gym last night. Not what I expected.
I knew it would be different when I arrived.
15 women and 1 other guy.
Non stop moving with light weights and a rubber hose with handles on each end.
I'm glad I only picked a 40 pound barbell.

Green is from the spinach. Purple is from the blueberries.

Still working on losing that first inch. Then I'll work on the rest.
