Alrighty, my status.
Start Weight: 275 max.

Goal Time: July 1st, 2016
My goals are spaced apart to maintain big picture, obtainable goals with conservatively reasonable expectations. My eating is still a slow challenge, but one that is better than it used to be. I am 33, and 6'0 tall. No major health concerns or conditions. I cannot power walk/jog without pain, due to ankle conditions. This will be addressed soon, but does not impact workouts as explained in next paragraph. Mental health wise mild mood swings bomb focus at times. These are times I indulge in at least caffeine, and then often food from said caffeine joint. The food used to be about a 95% certainty, now it might be 50-60%.
I started working out at a gym in the middle of July I think, which solves my ankle dilemma. After initial advice from the employee who signed me up, and the hoodwink free "assessment" trainers, I have incorporated weight training. I am trying to do the _____ day thing, but run out of weight machines. But I am trying to do a legs, arms, and core deal rotation. Cardio is every time.
I was 8 days straight off the wagon, and felt my mood plummet afterward. Factoring in that time period, I'm averaging at least 4 days a week since starting. Minus that week, probably a solid 6 day a week average. I get about a full hour in, ensuring I'm cardio'ing at least 30 minutes. I started doing the sauna afterwards when I don't go in the morning- really trying to do that instead of after work.
As an addition, I faux rock climb for about 1-2 every week. Overall, I am pleased with my results physically and mentally.
