When I moved from NYC back to Connecticut, I knew I wanted to used the gym at work. The first 3 months here were just a blur. Finding an apartment, moving, getting used to a new job and working different shifts at different times so I knew what happened on all of them.
Then came the holidays where everyone no matter what, eats themselves silly. New Years came and I was hitting the gym, lightly doing cardio.
In April I decided to start doing some lifting along with my cardio. I decided to look into some supplements and started using a protein shake as part of my daily routine.
I am happy to report that I have lost 15 pounds since that day in April and feel fantastic. It's like one of those commercials on TV but I really do feel great. While it's 15 pounds lost I feel like I have built more muscle and lost a bunch more fat. If I had known what my BMI was it possibly could seem more impressive.
No worries though.
This past Monday I decided to step up my lifting and work out program. 2 friends of mine brought up a site called RealJock.com
How can I describe it... it's Facebook/Manhunt for gay men who like to work out. There are some BEAUTIFUL people on there. There are forums where you can talk about pretty much anything.
I decided to do the Muscle Building program. I took my before picture and have even chatted with guys who started on the same day as me.
15 pounds ago I was the same person. Today, mid June, I am a lot more focused than I have been.
