Day #10 – Jeff Yalden Weight Loss

It’s going to be a great day. Big meeting today with Gosling’s Rum who is the Official Rum of the Boston Red Sox. We are finalizing the deal where we are their official graphic designer and screen printer creating their line of t-shirts and branding them. Great deal for my staff and our company.

Woke up this morning feeling a little beaten up. Just tired. What it is is the intake of sugar my body is used to. I will get used to it and my body will adjust. I have been eating no fats and eating very healthy. Also, I think there is a significant reduction in calories but I am eating every few hours to keep the metabolism burning. Honestly, I am NOT depriving myself. I feel great. Weight is falling off like crazy. Today, I weighed in at 314 down from 335. That is pretty good considering, I didn’t start till January 24, 2011. Less than 2 weeks and I am down about 21 pounds. Well, the 335 was with clothes on and the 314 is after a workout butt-naked. Still, I am down at least 16 pounds I would say.

So, my wife told me not to go to the gym today but I am also tired from 14 hour office days working at the shop and exhausting myself mentally and physically. I still made it to the gym and did legs. I pushed for more reps not the weight. Then I didn’t want to do the elyptical machine so I got on the treadmill for 20 minutes and walked at an incline and jogged for a minute here and walked a few minutes here. Then, jogged at 5.0 for another minute and walked. So, I jogged for a total of 4 minutes and walked 16 minutes. I want to run a 5K by Thanksgiving of 2011. Start now 1 minute at a time.

I am in the office and feeling awesome. Glad I did it. My thought is that maybe later I’ll go back up and do cardio but why? I did my workout. Nutrition is the key today. We have a lunch meeting and I will be disciplined. I have my cooler prepared with yogurt, cheese, oranges and bananas. It is portions and control.

QUESTION: Why would I care more about my car than I do about myself and how I look? I was thinking that today. Isn’t my body the vehicle of choice. Isn’t it me that is seen by more people than a stupid car? It’s a car people. A car . . . My body is my temple. I own it. I control it. It’s my self-esteem. My pride and joy. It’s mine and I am responsible for how it acts, looks, feels and works.

Weight Watchers – I am still under in points every day which concerns me but my metabolism is up and my pounds are falling off. The weight watchers is about awareness and control. I feel awesome.
