Yes, that's the number that greeted me (or rather mocked me) on the scale this morning....

How did it get to that? 

Easy, I have been eating like crap, no time to work out, you name it, I have an excuse for it.

There.  Said it....

Today is the start, the start of my returning back to the person I "like"

I took before pictures (which may NEVER bee seen by the public eye) and re-visited some web sites that I have bookmarked.  The Warrior Diet, Mark's Daily Apple, Weight Watchers and SINS of course (Strong is the new skinny). 

What's left to do today? 
  •  measurements
  • food plan
  • grocery shopping

What are my short term goals for this week:
  • Get a couple of work outs in.  My back is still not 100%, but that doesn't preclude me from doing some upper body
  • Eat well - basic paleo, lots of protein, start cutting back the excess carbs
  • Make a pact with a couple of my co-workers to kick me in the @ss when they see me wasting time that I could be working out.  
I am going to think about a 4 week goal, and an 8 week goal for my next post.  But I know that I want to get back to around 23-25 % body fat (perfect for endurance) and get back to running shorter distances, heck just RUNNING again would be awesome, over the next few months, maybe target a 10K in May, followed by a couple of shorter triathlons in the summer.  

Anyhow, thanks for reading, and if you decide to follow, comments and @ss kicking are always encouraged!


  1. Good luck on your journey! I have to say that I truly believe that it is one you will be so happy you decided to go on! I have been Paleo now for only 6 weeks and it has been the best decision I have ever made. It is amazing to watch your body transform, I started at 145 on my 5 foot frame! I have lost 15 pound and counting and I have never felt better! The first two weeks are the hardest (withdrawls) but after that it is awesome! I look forward to reading more about your journey!

    Here is another great site for inspiration and recipes!

  2. you can do it! heck, anyone can if I did... I haven't been blogging about it, but I went Paleo January 18, and have already lost 19 pounds. I can literally SEE the difference. I feel stronger!

    I will also look forward to reading about your progress!

  3. I cant wait to read more about your progress. Keep it up, you know you can! :)
