If you don’t know me in the real world.. I am a band leader of a popular club/wedding band in the Philadelphia area called Bigg Romeo. We had a wedding this past Saturday and it was one of those early set-ups, long nights, great parties.. But it weighed in the back of my mind the whole week so it made me change a few things around. I ended up at bootcamp on Tues, Wednesday and Thursday. I also walked 6 of the 7 days this week as well. I had a hard time doing anything Saturday except wedding prep. I still manage to pull out almost a 3 pound loss this week. I thought it might have been more but it just wasn’t in the cards. As always I am glad that it was at least in the direction that I wanted and work for it to go. I am trying.
The photo studio I own and run by myself has been slow. (Good and Bad) My family commitments have been few so I’ve been able to focus on my goals. I am very lucky about that but it’s hard. I wish that I could afford a personal trainer to kick my ass but I just can’t. So I’ll keep trying to make strides in bootcamp. Maybe go a few days more a week and see what happens. I am working hard but still get depressed. I know I can’t just shake the 100 pounds off me. I know I am 5 pounds away from losing my first 50 but come on for Christ’s sake. Let’s do this shit already. I have places and things I want to do.
It’s okay though. Let’s talk about a few good things this week because in the end I am here to invoke inspiration and inspire those who are at the bottom looking up and just want to start climbing… I wrote about that tuxedo that I got into about a month ago for a wedding. Well it was a lot bigger on me. the pants were nice and loose, jacket fit great… just made me smile the whole damn wedding. More and more 3xl shorts are fitting.. I put my smaller jeans on for the casino job on Friday, new shirt and just felt great. My body is responding. Now I know most days I don’t eat enough and I am trying. I am way under calories most days. I have to change that. I will change that. Onward to 50 pounds and then to 100.
I’ll try and take a few new full body photos this week in the studio.
