Three Weeks Later…

I’ve officially made it three weeks in my latest quest for fitness. I’ll be honest with you…21 days has felt more like 21 years. I haven’t taken a day off from physical activity since I started. My body is sore, but my waist is shrinking. It’s been worth every second of effort.

It’s time for my weekly weigh-in. I started at 230 pounds, dropped to 218 pounds after my first week, and went back up to 220 after my second week. I wasn’t really sure what to expect this time around. After gaining a couple of pounds last week, I was really hoping I’d start my way back down the scale. I did! I weigh 215 pounds!

Not only am I losing weight, but I’m also feeling much more fit. A couple of weeks ago, I was really struggling through Athletic Training class at my local gym. It was so bad that the instructor came over to ask if something was wrong (she thought I was literally dying) or if I was just out of shape. I was ashamed of myself, but it was a driving force to keep going. This week, I felt like I was able to keep up in class much better. I even did an extra 30 minutes on an elliptical machine afterward. Speaking of, a half an hour of cardio feels like a minor blip to me now. I’m also having a much easier time when I play hockey. It took me five hours (or so) to feel “normal” after getting back on the ice three weeks ago (it was my first time playing in a year). Now, I feel great after I play. It’s awesome!

I’ve also had several people ask me if I’m losing weight. I told one person that I lost ten pounds and they responded by asking, “That’s it? It looks like you’ve lost more than that.” I thought that was pretty cool. I seem to lose weight in my face first (which is good for someone on television), so I think people notice quicker. I still have a belly, but it’s not nearly as bad as it was. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever lose my love handles (any tips?).

I’m also finding much more success in the kitchen (that wasn’t the case when I started). I think that’s because I’ve stuck stuck with the mainstays (chicken breast, eggs, tuna) over the last week. I’ve been intimidated to trying anything new. My friend Nicolle (@blushresponse) let me borrow her copy of “Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook”, but I haven’t even used it yet. I’m afraid of my Crock-Pot. I’ll hopefully come around one of these days. With that said, I finally succeeded at making salmon (and not under cooking it) and crab (no ammonia taste this time). I’m making slow, steady progress. Give me a few months and I’ll be the next Wolfgang Puck.

Before I move on, I wanted to mention that I tried a new snack this week. A big thanks to my friend Shelly (@shellykornmayer) for recommending half a cantaloupe with cottage cheese in the middle (even though she would never eat it herself). I don’t know if I described that well enough. All you do is cut a cantaloupe in half, scoop out the seeds, and fill the crater with cottage cheese. It’s simple, delicious, and healthy.

After all the good news, I hate to admit that I had another cheat day. I played golf on Saturday with some friends and took down a few beers. After the round, I had a slice of pizza and some cheese sticks at a local bar. I then went to a wedding later that night and devoured even more food. I had prime rib, potatoes au gratin, pasta salad, risotto (even though I called it rice and mushrooms until someone corrected me), Caesar salad (with tons of dressing), rolls, and cake (of course). I had two plates. I also had a few more beers, some wine, and a few other drinks. I capped my night with some soft pretzels (with salt…lots of it) that I bought at Albertsons (I ate all six that came in the box).

I didn’t feel as guilty about this cheat day as I did my last one, but I still went to the gym for two hours to make up for it on Sunday. I felt like red wine was dripping out of my pores while I was there. At the same time, I think it helped me avoid a hangover.

There’s not much else to report. It’s all becoming more of a routine. That’s good and bad. The good is that I’m more comfortable with everything. I’m not fighting the urges as much as I was before. I like the results too much to give in. The bad is that the stories are probably getting a little less exciting.

I’ll be really honest with you. These posts have helped keep me accountable. There have been days that I wanted to give up, but I started to think about my readers and how lame I would look if I quit. I don’t want to be the guy who committs to working out for two weeks and then gives up anymore. I want this to become a way of life for me. In other words, the updates are going to keep coming if you like them or not (although I hope you like them).

I can’t tell you what a great feeling it is when I hear that my posts have helped motivate others. I’ve had a few people tell me that now. That was one of my goals when I started. I wanted to share my experiences with others and I wanted you to share your experiences with me.

Please feel free to get a hold of me at tim@timlewissports.com. You can also find me on Twitter @TLKREM2 or @lewissports or on the “Fans of Tim Lewis” page on Facebook.

I hope you have an awesome week!
