Men’s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts

Posted in From the Future Thin Guy on 04/23/2012 by Ganns Deen

For the past two weeks, I’ve been packing healthier lunches with me to the office. I’ve also reduced my snack intake, and it’s been a while since I last had soda. This, however, has me really excited:

This book has me really excited. It’s very similar to the Body for Life fitness regimen that worked for me two years ago, that I had difficulty maintaining because I injured myself and got lazy. But this, oh this book looks like fun! There are literally dozens of exercises here that I can mix and match, and it even comes with a food plan. This will be fun!

This morning, I woke up late; it’s the end of the five-day long weekend. Did five hectic minutes on the stationary bike and about 100 crunches. Not even close to where I wanna be, but I’m also acknowledging that I’m too big to start jogging again, it’ll be murder on my knees. But I am going to meet that 15,000 step requirement that Jay put me to, so there. (As a matter of fact, I’m typing this from the office, and I took the four flights up. Slow and sure wins the race.)

For breakfast, I had half a cup of low-fat milk and a cup of Nestle Fitnesse cereal.

For lunch, I had a cup of rice, half a bangus, and 1/2 cup of ginataang langka.

I had a 12 oz. Chocolate Chip Blizzard for a snack.

For dinner, I had a chicken kebab, some tzatziki (cucumber in yogurt), and about a cup’s worth of pasta aglio olio. (pasta with garlic and olive oil).

I know I haven’t been consistent in this food journal, and I’m sorry. But the good news is I’m consistent in the workouts. Cheers!

I bought myself a book – The Men’s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts. I’m really excited to do this, and I know it’ll really help.

Summer’s been really hot! I’m hoping this will help me burn more fat. LOL
