2015 Spring 5% Challenge...Ready & Working For Change!

Welcome, I'm Kirk. No, that is not me in the photo but I thought wouldn't it be great to someday be as svelte and gorgeous in a tux. That's why I came to this site with a picture of a chimp in a suit and a dream. This is America and almost anything is possible if one sets their mind to it. I believe this law is universal on the planet but in this country there seem to be fewer insurmountable obstacles. Where there's a will there's a way. My goal on paper seems reasonable enough, almost ...
Welcome, I'm Kirk. No, that is not me in the photo but I thought wouldn't it be great to someday be as svelte and gorgeous in a tux. That's why I came to this site with a picture of a chimp in a suit and a dream. This is America and almost anything is possible if one sets their mind to it. I believe this law is universal on the planet but in this country there seem to be fewer insurmountable obstacles. Where there's a will there's a way. My goal on paper seems reasonable enough, almost trivial, to go from my current weight of about 230 down to healthier one of 170 or less. My deadline (pun intended) is July 31, 2009 UPDATE: Dec 30, 2010 is my new time to goal. I don't know if you've recently wandered through a grocery store (don't get me started on buffets) or not but there's a war being waged against our waistlines and if we as consumers don't get hip to the tricksters on what they're trying to sell us we americans are only going to get larger and further strain an already sinking health care system. It seems like I've always been active but somewhere in my early thirties things got away from me and I got up to 260 pounds. I resolved to getting fitter in January 2007 and while progress has been made and I feel a lot better, stronger and more "virile" than ever, or at least remember, I know I need to bring this train to the station. I'm learning that support, giving and receiving, can be a huge factor in achieving any goal and that's another reason I'm here. To offer encouragement, advice, links and the occassional laugh (ok, I thought it was funny) as we make our year and our lives lighter, happier places to be. What will the new me be like? Besides being slightly ripped and wearing smaller I have no idea, but I'm looking forward to the adventure. Change is not easy, especially when you're used to things being a certain way long enough, good or bad. That's enough rambling for now but I wish all of us new found and long kept successes in 2009 and beyond!
UPDATE: Can someone tell this guy to update his intro. Hello...it's like 2014 already.
UPDATE: Looks like I've been hacked. Someone has a little too much free time on their hands but whatever. Still fighting the good fight to stay under 200. Hoping to finish 2014 at 180 or less. Time to make it happen.

My Program:
I will exercise at least 5 days per week (strength and cardio), watch what I eat, stay hydrated and get great rest and repeat for the rest of my life. I will also meditate on what I want to create; I think the mental factor is greatly underestimated in it's ability to help us achieve the lives we envision for ourselves and those connected to us.

Other Information:
I love music!

My last thought before I start working out is...
"Why am I doing this"....

My first thought when I finish a workout....
"When can I do it again"...

I thought about stopping...
Then I workout harder...

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can GOOOoooO....
Remember everything you have faced... all the battles you have won....
All the Fears you have overcome...

A Single Thread of Hope is Still Very POWERFUl....

I don't have to work out...
I Get to Work out...

#1. Being Active one... two... three times.. won't help you lose weight... It takes 12 weeks to see the Results...
emoticon

#2. 100 Calories Pack Snacks... or even Rice Krispy Treats... Single Packaged...
emoticon
#3. Don't Weigh Often... Go by the way your clothes fit... or Tape Measure...
emoticon

#3. Diet Soda has artificial Sweeteners... that Harms the Body...
emoticon

#4. Craving Foods... Remember that it will always be there... It's alright if you don't have whatever your craving... You won't miss it... It will always be at the store... and if it's not at the store next time... or it's not at the restaurant your craving.. it won't be a Total Lost... Everything will be Fine...
emoticon = emoticon

#5. Prepacking Meals Ahead of Time... Cook Chicken Breasts ahead of time... for easy access later on during the week... or sort out healthy snacks to remind you of your smaller portions....
