I can’t even begin to tell you what I’ve been up to since last Thursday. I had my last strength training last Thursday and set a few person records.
245lbs deadlift, 165 bench press and 255lbs Barbell squat. Loved my second month of strength training at #DCBC. I don’t compete against the others. Competing against myself is hard enough. I only post this because a year ago when I started going to Dan Campos Fitness – I was 60lbs heavier and figured I would have quit in 2 weeks. It’s been a year and I don’t see that in my future anymore. If I can do it you can too! I am taking the month of April off because I wanted to focus on hitting my goal and then fighting hard in the month of April to get under 300 pounds by May. It is doable. So I want to do it. I am still going to lift and go to boot camps.
Friday Night the band played at Ott’s Berlin and it was pretty surreal when I walked in and people I have never met were telling me how good I looked. And as you might think they are all women, they aren’t. It was mostly men. Do men really notice that stuff? I guess I do. But I always thought that was because of my artistic eye. You might think I am checking out someones ass by looking them up and down and in all honesty I am most likely checking out their sneakers. They might have a nice ass but that’s not what I am looking at.
Saturday Night we played an event for 400 steelworkers. We were treated fantastic. It was a long night on my feet.
Sunday, Amber and I went to Orange Theory for what they call a Tornado. It was pretty crazy but I did it. I have been chiseling away at things that I never really thought that I could do. It was a fast paced version of what they usually do. On the 12th they are doing a 90 minute workout and I am already signed up for that.
I did get there 5 times this week including tonight’s workout. I think it’s working very well for me so I am going to suck up the drive and get my ass there as much as I can. I am not the greatest at it. But I am doing it. Many people I tell about it roll their eyes when I tell them what it costs. But I really don’t even want to know how much money I’ve spent in the last 15 months trying to get this 100 pounds off me. Clothes, food, supplements, nothing is cheap. Nothing is free. Trainers although they want to see you succeed, also want to be paid. It’s the way it is. Everyone wants to make a living.
I am trying to rid stress from my life. It’s hard. The band is stressful. I can’t rid myself of it. I can’t care less about it. The studio only works if I push it hard. It’s a battle for sure. But more about that next time.
So I guess you want to know if I lost any weight this week. FUCK YA! I DID! I lost 2.9 pounds. So we’ll just go right ahead and call it 3 pounds.
We are 2.8 pounds away from 100 pounds lost #teamfranco. And 3 pounds is going to be the goal this week. I’d like to get to 310 and just get over the 100 pound mark. But you know that sometimes the body catches up to you so I can promise you that I’ll do my best. As much as I wanna go nutso on some pizza for Good Friday. I’ll continue to ask myself… “Is it worth it”, with my food choices. That’s all I can do.
So say a prayer for me. Workout with me. Keep me away from the bar. Let’s get this! Thank you for being a part of my team, just by reading you make me want to get better, inspire and find that Franco that’s been lost for a long time. It’s time for him to make an appearance. It’s time to get back to good.
