Ahoy everyone. Day 3 has arrived and I am quite sore, but so far the journey is working out well.
Before I do a ‘check in’ of where I am holding, I am going to get over to the gym and do the following workout:
Squat using 105lbs. Last workout I stopped at four sets, so will see today if I can get to 5.
Overhead press using 75lbs 5 sets of 5.
Deadlift one set of five reps using 150lbs. Considering that I had started out with 55lbs and have increased by almost 100lbs now, I am pretty happy with that.
My legs are killing me from Wednesday, but hopefully once I warm up I will be able to go for my sets.
We are making progress. I am down from 201.4lbs to 197.6lbs today. That sits just fine with me. Will have more to say about that later, have to run for awhile!
Last recorded weight: 197.6 lbs on 8/29/2014

I ended up going to the gym and during that time, which was approximately 45minutes, I did squats, 4 sets of 5 reps using 105lbs. I am going to stay with 105lbs until I am doing them easier. I have no idea how long that will take.
The shoulder presses of 75lbs were easier, 5 sets of 5 reps and I can go up to 80lbs next time.
Last I did Deadlifts , 2 reps using 150lbs.
Yes, I am sore and achy, but in only 3 days, I am down almost a full percent of fat and close to 4 pounds.
Now comes the weekend. I really did a good job tracking my calories for the evening meal on friday, which for me many times blows all of the gains that I made during the week. Here is what I had today:
