Are You Tired Of My Updates Yet?

When I started my quest for fitness on April 27th, I set my first goal for June 3rd (that’s when I leave for a four day weekend in Las Vegas). I wanted to get as fit as possible in that time, but I honestly got more committed than I really planned on. Once I started to see and feel results…I wanted to accomplish more. I don’t mean to pat myself on the back, but this is the hardest I have ever worked at a diet and in the gym in my life.

I’ve been active every day since I started (golf (even in the pouring rain), the gym, hockey, riding my bike, etc.). I’ve avoided fast food and candy (previously, staples in my diet) as well. It’s all been worth it. I’m not at work today, so I don’t have a scale to weigh myself. I’m OK with that, because losing weight wasn’t my ultimate goal from the beginning. I wanted to get healthy. With that said, as of last week, I’ve lost 22 pounds (from 230 to 208). I have a feeling I’ve lost more weight over the last seven days, but I’m not really sure. Again, I don’t really care either.

While I don’t know how much I weigh, I know that my body is different than it was. I went to Nordstrom right before I started my fitness adventure and spent way too much money on new jeans and shirts. The jeans fit well in my waist, but they were too long, so they needed to be tailored. I finally went to pick them up this weekend. They were a good length, but this time they didn’t fit my waist. The women who were helping me out had me trade a pair of the old jeans (36 waist) for a new pair (34 waist). I thought that was awesome! On top of that, I also returned a couple of the shirts I bought (I just didn’t like them…not because of the size). Since I had some money (for the returns), I decided to buy a “going out” shirt for Las Vegas. I couldn’t believe it…I bought a medium! I haven’t fit in a medium shirt since I was probably 16-years-old.

The hard work is paying off in more ways than that. I’m also making great strides in the gym. I’m lifting more weight than I have in a really long time (probably since college). I felt like such a wimp when I started lifting again, but now I feel like I actually belong in the gym. I’m also seeing better results with my cardio as well. I ran/walked five miles today. I walked for ten minutes, ran for ten minutes, walked for ten minutes, off and on for a little bit more than an hour. Running consistently for ten minutes is a HUGE achievement for me. I hate running. I never thought that I’d be able to do that. It actually felt really good.

That’s been one of the most gratifying things that has come out of all this. I love pushing myself at the gym and achieving what I set out to do. I see so many people just going through the motions at the gym (there is absolutely nothing wrong with that…every little bit helps). When I first started getting back into this stuff, that’s what I was doing. Keeping everything fairly easy. The more I was in there though, the more I started to push myself. Instead of just going on a straight line and keeping everything on the easiest levels, I really mix things up. I crank the resistance, increase the level, and vary my speed on the elliptical machine. I use difficult settings (hills, etc.) and up the resistance when I do the exercise bikes. I’ll run and walk on the treadmill, when I used to just walk. Honestly, the hardest workout of them all is the StairMaster. When I first started, I could only do 15 minutes (at the max) before I thought my legs were going to explode. Now I’ve maxed out at 37 minutes on a challenging course and a high level. The last time I was on there, I climbed 135 floors. That’s going from the bottom to the top of the Sears Tower (108 stories) and adding 27 more floors. I was 25 floors short of the tallest building in the world (the 160 storey Burj Khalifa). That’s my next goal (on a StairMaster of course)!

Here’s how I think about it now (sorry if this is a little intense or preachy): If you are going to workout, you’re doing it for a reason…to get fit. If you commit the time and effort to go to the gym, why not push yourself as hard as you can while you’re there? That’s the point isn’t it? You’d be surprised how much different you feel if you really push instead of just going through the motions. It really is rewarding. You should give it a try sometime.

I’m coming up on a serious test in a few days. I’m leaving my diet and workouts behind when I go to Las Vegas. I am going to let myself enjoy the best of what the Sin City has to offer. Once I get back, I’m only home for four days before I leave for Phoenix to play golf with some friends. Once I get back from Arizona, I’m home for two days before I travel to Seattle for Father’s Day. Needless to say, that’s going to kill my routine. I’m afraid that it’s going to be hard for me to maintain what I’ve lost with all of these trips. I really, really, really hope I can figure this out. I only have eight days at home in the first 20 days of June. I don’t want to fall back into my old ways, but I’m afraid that I’m going to. I don’t want to lose what I’ve accomplished. I feel better than I have in a really long time. If I start to slip, please promise that you will remind me about this post and you’ll push me to get going again. PLEASE!

That’s all I really have this week. I’m really sorry that I haven’t been posting much else on here lately. When you add up workouts, work, sleep, and all of life’s other small details (errands, cleaning, etc.), it’s hard to find much time to blog. Once my life settles down, I hope to make this website more of a priority.

I love reading your comments, so please feel free to write something below. You can always reach me on tim@timlewissports.com or on Twitter @TLKREM2 or @lewissports. You can also keep in touch by going to the “Fans of Tim Lewis” Facebook page. Let me know what’s going on in your world!

If I don’t get on here again before Las Vegas (which is more than likely), I’ll give you all the details when I get back (just like I did last time I was there).

Take care!
