I’m Going to Lose Ten Pounds

By July 23, 2012September 10th, 2012Health & Fitness

This morning, I stepped on the scale only to see that I’ve quickly added 10 pounds over the past few months.

I can immediately tell because my clothes are a little more snug and my lower back starts to ache.

Not acceptable.

The Goal

In six weeks, August 31, I want to drop from 198 to 188.

What I’m going to do about it:

  • Drop sugar and alcohol
  • Make sure I’m working out 5 times a week – mix between cardio and weights
  • Meditate three times a week
  • Stop eating by 7:00 pm and focus on more protein and complex carbs

(Just getting back from the Hillcrest Farmers Market in San Diego)


I’m also going to book a photo shoot with my girl for the first week of September. We did one last year and I was in great shape for it. This way I know that I have a deadline and can create added incentive to ensure I’m back in good shape.

The Takeaway

There are a ton of things I could do to get back to the weight I want, but it all boils down to making good decisions and staying disciplined about it. By focusing on just the few key aspects that will get me to my goal, it makes the goal more attainable and less overwhelming.

Also, by committing to you, it creates more positive pressure for me to keep my word.

I’ll be checking in periodically to give updates on my goal.
