    I've been seeing good results from eating healthier and biking to work everyday. I'm on schedule to commute over a 1000 miles by bike this year.

    That's awesome.

    Working up to a bike commute for years -- injuries and shit have set me back.
    But this Saturday I might just do it, as it's not a regular workday and I can wear what I want.
    26 miles roundtrip with about 1500 feet of climbing.


    Brainwave:

    If I can't get my midday run in because of too much heat or other schedule conflicts; I'm thinking maybe go workout from 5:30 to 6:30; that way I can come back to the office and still get some more work done.
    Otherwise it gets to the end of the day at 8:30 and I'm too pooped to move.

    Currently down to 232, which is about 43 pounds total over the course of 5 months. I haven't weighed this since 8th grade. I'm fitting into mostly XL's with some Large shirts fitting comfortably as well. Down from a 44 to a 40 pant size. I'm surprised how much of this has been because of a change in eating though. I haven't been working out more than once or twice a week, and certainly haven't been doing much lifting. That said, I want to get into a routine so that the final stretch of this weight loss, and what I want to look like will kind of coincide. My goal weight right now is between 200-210. Ideally, I want to reach that by December, which fits into how much weight I've been losing monthly.

    You definitely want to workout so the extra fat won't look weird. Congrats on the weight loss, keep at it!

    That's pretty impressive, I think the working out probably makes more of a difference than you realize b/c of how it stimulates your metabolism.

    Either way, it's amazing how much healthier people can be just by eating right.

    That's what I'd like to avoid. I want to try and find a balance between not losing weight anymore because it is turning into muscle and just losing weight without any muscular gain.

    It's basically been just a conscious effort to not eat shitty all the time. My snacking has gone down tremendously, or is at least healthier.

    When I've lost weight in the past, it's b/c I just stopped eating shit.

    I also worked out a lot more than once or twice a week, but, it's mostly diet. I lost like 22 lbs in Jan - March, give or take, just cutting Mac N Cheese, Cereal, Bagels and cold cuts.

    High rep, low weight will tone you which I think is what you want. Also, you could ease your way into high interval intensity training (HIIT). Shoot me a message if you have any questions.

    I want to add like 200 calories per day. I have a food slot open before I hit the gym in the morning or between 2nd breakfast and lunch (10AM-1PM). Any ideas?

    I was thinking some egg whites, but those shits are expensive and not particularly calorie dense.

    My job is a lot of lifting and moving around most days, so I guess there's that. But I still want to get into some kind of routine. That's awesome though dude. I can't cut Mac N Cheese or cereal. I just try and eat them on days I'm working.

    Do something like Starting Strength. Super easy to get into, will let you ease into working out - 3 days a week, simple lifts. It's basically the default for anyone looking to get into working out.

    In the morning I would say Greek Yogurt (Chobani 100 cal) and a banana. 2nd breakfast I generally do a bunch of almonds, though that's probably more than 200 calories, or cheese and crackers.

    Well then I'm out of ideas lol

    I love smoothies but I never really like to take the time to make them. Spinach + citrus fruit + milk is what I usually go with. Probably will only be about 150 cals though, depending on what you do. I'm also eat a lot of PB&J sandwiches on wheat. That's closer to 300 cals I would guess, but maybe just do a half sandwich?
