I’ve mentioned before about being somewhat of a fat guy, and the sometimes stressful SAHD life doesn’t help staying on track with my diet. I often forget to eat in the mornings, half the yogurt that the kid doesn’t finish for lunch, then eat like a pig at dinner and at night. Not good.
Well, I’ve joined some other dad bloggers in a weight loss challenge that has been dubbed “Chunk the Chunk”, starting August 1st and ending with the Dad 2.0 Summit 2014 in New Orleans. It will be a great way to motivate each other, share our thoughts and progress, and hopefully have some fun doing it. I’m excited to meet some of the other fantastic daddy bloggers face-to-face!
My goals are twofold. I want to:
- lose 20 lbs, which won’t get me back to my 19 year old self, but is about as realistic as it’s going to get at almost 40.
- get my carb intake within acceptable limits.
I found out about a year ago that I’m pre-diabetic, and I did alright with my diet for a while, but have fallen off quite a few times. I hope that Chuck the Chunk will get me back on track. I’ll keep y’all posted on my progress. Maybe putting this right out there on the Intarwebs will motivate me further.
I’ll be tracking my exercise on Fitocracy. My handle is regular_stormy. I’m going to be keeping track of my calorie and carb consumption on MyFitnessPal calorie tracker. My handle there is also regular_stormy. I accept friend requests as long as they are not spammy.
Wish me luck!
