20 by 40 – Part 2 – Progress

OK, so I’m down 2.5lbs as of this morning.  Sure, probably just water weight but still happy to see the ball rolling.  Consistency is gonna be needed, big time.  It’s usually around day 4 or 5 that I go bonkers, so I need to do the right thing and keep the healthy carbs (like a yam with dinner) coming in and keep that leptin level slightly up.  I ain’t been 100% or even 95% clean, probably closer to 85-90%.  But I had 2 great workouts so far this week.

In the meantime my co-worker’s eating an apple like it’s the anchor leg of some Young Life event. Ease it off there, buddy.

So dropping the immense amount of carbs from my diet which I had daily ingested last week has proved beneficial.  Sometimes something is just too friggin’ good to pass up.  So, low carb’in’ it works.

Drinkin’ a lotta water at night, too.  I realized I pretty much stopped drinking water after 6pm, so I was getting that weird fake-empty feeling of “hunger” an hour after dinner.  Keeps the skin clear, the pipes clear, and helps motivate an early rise from bed, lest I piss said bed.  You can get away with that only like 3 times a year before trouble starts.

So there we go.  Sigh.  On my way.  I’ll be even more motivated when it comes to that 10lb mark.  When I see the results of consistent action (i.e. not eating like a dipshit on the weekends) I know I’ll be feeling even more motivated.

About Geoff Lott

Geoff Lott is a "thinking person's comedian" as much as a "drinking person's comedian." Born and raised near Seattle, his writing and comedy is Cloudy with a Chance of Hope. Less offensive than your average nightly news program, Geoff is opinionated with intent, and a rebel without a clause. A comedian, actor, dad, husband, co-worker, weirdo, and great friend, Geoff Lott has a sense of humor like a sommelier's sense of smell; aged well, with a hint of dark chocolate, Irish whiskey, and leather.
