    Weight loss journey log

    I am making this post to hold myself accountable. I have made a few posts but I am wanting to condense it down to one location.

    My Goals:
    Post daily to hold myself accountable whether it's the machines I used or how I am feeling if I don't work out.
    Lose at least 150lbs. I am going to try to aim for 200lbs.
    Gain muscle to try and offset some of the lose skin I know I will have to eventually face.
    Eat a healthier diet rather than fast food almost every day.
    plan for the future and stop only living in the "now"

    I look forward to what is to come in this next chapter of my life and to make sure I document my successes and failures.

    Note: I tend to go to the gym anywhere around 11:30pm to 2am. I like working out late at night.

    I spent 5 days with a personal trainer before my logs start.

    At my gym there are machines I have never used before. I asked the trainer to help me learn the machines and the proper techniques for each one, so that when I was alone I could properly workout without hurting myself or damaging myself.

    Day 4:
    I spent 30 minutes stretching. I was feeling very sore from the past several days of working out and from work. I didn't want to add anymore stress to my body so I decided to take a rest day. I am feeling better and plan to do my next workout after work.

    Day 7:
    Rest day. I was too exhausted with the past 2 days of workout plus work that when I got home from work I was only able to shower and eat dinner before quickly falling asleep. I was frustrated with myself though that I didn't post daily on here which is what I want to do. Rather than upload it every few days. But I can slowly adjust to that.

    Today marks day 8 as I am typing days "5-7". I plan to do a semi intense workout but instead of focusing on legs or upper body I am going to try my best to do legs and upper body. I feel quite rested up from yesterday. I will not push myself too hard since I am still getting used to all of this, but definitely day 5 got the best of me. I will try my best to type day 8 up late tonight once I get my workout done. Otherwise I will post it when I wake up.

    Today is day 9, as I post day 8. I am feeling better but I am still a bit sore. I am not looking forward towards today due to my work schedule. This whole weekend my shift is in the early morning mid afternoon, while I am used to working mid afternoon to late evening. I was able to adjust my sleeping schedule but my body is definitely not happy about it. Thankfully I have 1 more day of this after today before my schedule goes back to normal.

    Day 10:
    Work schedule was changed and completely ruined my sleep cycle. I did a 30 minute walk around the town. Didn't do to much due to how tired I was from going in early.

    Had another early shift thus throwing my sleeping cycle off. Things go back to normal for the next few weeks. Came home, took a nap then went to the gym.

    I spent 1 hour on the cycle.
    20 minutes on the cycle resistance level 3
    20 minutes on the cycle on "fat burn" mode
    20 minutes on the cycle on " continuous watts"

    Note: Today is day 12, posting for both day 11 and 10.
