Being sick of being sick, and constantly watching my weight fluctuate, I decided to take a stand. 2 weeks ago, I’ve started a formal training regimen and diet plan with my fitness coach, Coach Jessica Lopez. Before I began actually training with her, we had a meeting to discuss my goals, eating habits, and training schedule.
What it all boiled down to was:
- Training too much
- Eating improperly
- Beer is like 7 slices of bread.
She established a few guidelines for me. Notably my RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate of 1877). With the way I train, I need a steady supply of good nutrients to foster muscle growth and fat burning. I’ve also significantly reduced the amount of alcohol I drink. That one’s probably a no-brainer.
My training schedule was more formalized and streamlined to include weight lifting and running. After running through some lifting drills I learned that I had been doing it wrong my whole life.
What’s my goal? I want to eventually get down to 165 lbs, and get shredded in the process. I started out at 190 lbs. Currently I’m hovering around the 180-185 lbs range. Is it possible? Follow me on the road to getting ripped on my new weekly series, #OtakuFighter, with updates every Sunday!
