I have had an epiphany.

It has been a long time since I have posted as usual I have let life get in the way of my goals again. I have been exercising the whole time. I have tried to eat right but alway seemed to cheat a little on the weekends. Before I knew it on December 31st I was back to 269 pounds. I quit eating a relatively good diet and put on 17 pounds in 2 months.

As I neared the global resolution date of January 1st I decided to think about my diet a little differently. I just would eat like I already had a ripped six pack. It started out pretty good and
I looked at every meal as the one that would either make or break my six pack. I already had it right? It was already mine and it was mine to lose. That was when it dawned on me...


That's it in a nutshell. That is why I have even had to start this blog. That is why I don't have a six pack already. I really looked at my diet as something I did between the times that I ate what I wanted. Because of this I felt perpetually deprived. I always waited for the weekend when I could cheat.

No more.

I haven't eaten so much as a tiny candy bar, had a carbonated drink or a taste of ice cream. I have eaten all I wanted to and have never gone hungry and I haven't craved a single thing.
I just eat like someone who already has a six pack. People that have six packs eat sensible meals of vegtables and low fat meats like chicken and fish.

I have eaten like I have a six pack and I have dropped 18 pounds in the last month. I am still exercising because I am currently in training for a half ironman which happens in April. I will post some pictures of where I am at physically soon.

I will soon uncover my six pack... because I already have it.
