My Ordinary Life

Good morning to everyone out there. I hope you all had a good Christmas and a good New Year. Mine was very quiet and it was my first official Christmas on my own, so I did go and see my family for a change. My Christmas I did spend with my parents but luckily my brother was there so it was less painful for a change. I cant understand why that time of year has to be so expensive as well, people eat to much, get drunk and act so selfish as well. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy Christmas but it is all about spending money to please people.

So this new year I have decided, yes again, to try and get fitter and try and work out a healthier food plan as well. So with my food I have decided to try and give myself around 2000 calories, give or take. But in that I am trying not to eat fried food, processed food like sliced ham, some cheeses, and some white breads. I have started to have about three to four meals a day and try to make then some what healthy. I am not the sort to stick to salads all the time. I love my meats like chicken, pork, turkey steaks, minced meat and sometimes Tuna.

When I wake up I usually have two cups of coffee in the space of two hours then take a 30-40 minutes walk to the gym. Once at the gym I will do mixed cardio which consists of an elevated walk for about 15 minutes then I do an interval run which may consist of walking for two minutes, then a fast run for a minute. Or I may try average run for three minutes and walk for two minutes and this could take anything from 15-25 minutes. Once done I will do a all over body work out but mix it up over the days. I don’t concentrate in particular parts like legs and abs or back and triceps, I try to do everything. Such as yesterday I did :

   Overhead Press- 60kgs, 70kgs, 75kgs, 75kgs – 8 to 12 reps and 4 sets                                            Bicep Curls – 25kgs, 27.5kgs, 27.5kgs, 30kgs – 8 to 12 reps and 4 sets                                            Bench press- 40kgs, 50kgs, 55kgs, 60kgs – 8 to 12 reps and 4 sets                                                   Seated Abs press – 58.5kgs, 63.5kgs, 67.5kgs, 67.6kgs 8 to 12 reps and 4 sets                                 Pull Downs – 80kgs, 85kgs, 85kgs, 85kgs 8 to 12 reps and 4 sets                                                      Seated leg curl – 31kgs, 38.5kgs, 38.5kgs, 38.5kgs 8 to 12 reps and 4 sets                                       Chest Dips – assisted plate – 6, 6, 6, 5  8 to 12 reps and 4 sets

So today I will do another all over body workout but I will not set down what I should do but will wait and see , when I get there and see what is available. I have done this for a bout three days now and I can already feel a difference already. I have not had any alcohol for about 5 days and I really feel better for it and my waist has started to go as well now. To be honest I am not bothered about my weight as the more I workout the more body fat I will burn and some of the fat will turn into muscle and as we all know muscle is heavier and smaller than the fat. So when I do go to the gym I will do another all over workout and but maybe do it different like just kettle bells or dumbbells, who knows.
