All diets start on a Monday: Time to work on me again

Hey Everyone, welcome back to the blog!

It’s Monday once again and that can only mean one thing…it’s time to start the diet over and this time we are going to be achieving our goals.

Before this blog, my previous post was about the 75 hard and how I would be taking this challenge on and I will be doing exactly that just not right at this minute

I realised lately that I had lost a lot of motivation for dieting and exercise and every excuse I could find I was breaking diet, going to McDonalds or dominos and just not caring! until the next day when I would step on the scale and see the numbers

I have since taken a step back and thought about what I want to do in terms of diet and exercise moving forward and I’ve given my head a wobble, focused up and today marks the start of the next chapter in the journey to getting in shape

I work up today at around 6:30am not out of choice but because our 18 month old daughter decided it was time for us to be awake, I jumped out of bed and straight on the scales to be greeted with the figure of 231.0lb

Now I’m not too happy with this as if you have read any of my past lockdown lifestyle blogs you will know I got down to about 206.0lb at the beginning on the year but as I mentioned my excuses and just not being focused has put me back a bit

its now time to get back to that 206lb mark and go further in creating the physique I desire

To be honest looking at this picture I’m not overly upset by the weight gain and I don’t think my physique is in the worst place, I feel I have a solid base and with the right nutrition and exercise plan I can create something that ill be extremely happy with

So over the next 16 weeks ill be going on a journey of creating this! ill be dieting and sticking to a calorie deficit, ill be going to the gym, and ill be holding myself accountable something I have not done for a while, but something I need to do in order to achieve my goals

ill be documenting everything on the blog and will be looking to post a couple of times a week not only about the weight loss journey like in the past but touching on life in general

Im currently in the process of setting back up my twitch stream and you can catch me over their a couple of evenings a week it would actually be great to see you there and we can talk about anything in the journey

Back to the journey and the plan from here on out. Ive joined my local Pure Gym and will be aiming to achieve 3-5 sessions per week, these will be before work at around 4am! I may even add in some evening cardio from the beginning of this like I would of done with the 75 hard challenge

Ill be adding a couple of supplements into my diet which will mainly be ‘Clear Whey’ a whey protein from Myprotein and ‘Creatine Monohydrate’ I don’t feel I need to add anything in right now, the creatine will be taken daily with some cod liver oil too, and the clear whey will be used to boost my protein should I feel the need to do so

My goal for the next 16 weeks will be to get to around 200lb, though I am not completely focused on scale weight and will also judge my progress from the way I am looking in the mirror as I do feel this is more important and more beneficial for myself

Ill be posting on the blog some of the workouts I’m doing, the food I’ve been eating and we will be back to the Sunday blog in which I detail all of the good and bad points from he previous week as well as how I intend to improve on things moving forward

For now I want to thank everyone for reading this and any other blog I have posted, Ill be streaming on twitch this evening and would love to see some of you there also I’ve now added a PayPal button to my blogs and if you have enjoyed what you read you can buy me a coffee if you wish to do so

I hope you all have a fantastic Monday and a great start to the week ill be back soon with another blog, in the meantime follow me over on twitter @drage162 and lets connect on there
