Personal Trainer Food – Week One

Personal Trainer Food - Week One

Personal Trainer Food – Week One

I have to admit. I do very well with structure. I do well with a plan and not when I have to plan in the moment when it comes to food. That’s why I have fallen in love with Personal Trainer Food in just one week. There’s been a lot of times in the past that I’ve thought I found something that would work and I will admit a lot of the times I vanished from the scene of the crime and a lot of the damage was done on my own doing. I couldn’t sustain shakes. I sustained #NSNG (No Sugar No Grains) but found myself in a predicament when my work schedule and routine changed over a year ago when I started The job at Stewart. This however is real food. Real food that I get to eat. Not processed. When this 50lb boxed of food showed up I felt overwhelmed and I thought what did I get myself into. Now I look at it like this is what 28 days of food is supposed to look like. Then I imagined 28 days divided by 7 days divided by 2-3 pizza’s a week and the rest of the days finding something to eat and not only sabotaging myself but also my wife and family. Personal Trainer Food gives me more flexibility than I could have ever hoped for. It has been my routine and it has been my fuel (literary)

Personal Trainer food makes really good food. I think that’s why I’m stoked about this journey. If I didn’t like the food, you all know I would be the first person to tell you. When it comes to my opinion and my review on something they’re my own. I do not sugar coat anything. Class example is that shake thing I was doing. I’m very honest and this company is class act in the only short one week period that make me feel wanted and appreciated and they genuinely want to see me succeed and I want nothing more to succeed with them.

As I mentioned in a earlier post. I’m sticking to my guns and will not show my weight loss till the month has passed and going forward I will be doing monthly weigh ins. I’ve also added a Starting pic from Xmas showing me at the 561lbs mark and will upload progress pics as I see fit.

My wife, work, friends, family are all supportive of this full effort to really preaching my motto. I mean I put it on a t-shirt didn’t I. Life will always give you hurdles and obstacles that you have to maneuver around. Over, under & so on. Instead of crying about it. Do something about it. Get mad. I’m mad, Because all those pains and issues should be the reason not the excuse for why you’re doing what you do.

I ask that all of you really follow me on this one. Check in with me. Ask me how I’m doing. My mind is good now. As I talk about things going forward on this journey, I’m going to get personal with myself.

A lot of people think that it can be so easy to lose the weight and I think a lot of those people are the ones that never had to face 561lbs in the mirror. I have monsters hidden that no one or only very few even know about. So forgive me if in my posts in the future I bring up some of my past. I’m only doing it to help me and make those around me understand what it’s truly like being me. I’ll let you step in my shoes but you’ll never fill them.

Personal Trainer Food Day 1

So Day 1 is in the books for Personal Trainer Food. I must admit I was skeptical how I thought the food was going taste. This stuff is really good. Eggs and Sausage for Breakfast. Chipotle Chicken Breast for Lunch with a variety bag of veggies and Angus Burger & Cheddar Chicken Sticks with another bag of veggies.

I’m not a veggie person but I’m plugging the nose and making them go down the hatch….well honestly they weren’t that bad. I guess I just have to give things a chance sometimes.

50lbs of food showed up at my door on Saturday in a Cooler type box with dry ice. All food is wrapped individually and marked with name of item and how long to cook for. Most items only take 2-3 minutes in the Microwave.

Our Fridge is completely filled and I’m thinking I may have to go out and buy a deep freezer to continue on this and if the food choice I made with their menu continue to surprise me with taste then this just might be the thing that helps get me to where I want to be. Personal Trainer Food

My first goal of 2016 is to get down to 399lbs. I set this goal to try to reach it by the end of July. Tough but I think with my size it’s very doable. Last year for those that do or don’t remember I kicked it high gear with #NSNG and lost almost 75lbs in just a months time.

I kick myself in the ass that I let a job change and then being laid off contribute to me gaining all that weight back. It I could add up the times I have lot a good amount of weight I’d be the shit…lol

So with Personal Trainer Food, I will be following their program for 28 days. I will Document my progress in a couple different ways through Social Media, so please show the support and make sure you’re following. For those of you that have any questions about the program, please leave a comment and let me know. Also if you want to join click the box to the right or here & use the code TOOBIG at checkout to get 75 dollars off your order.

I will be weighing in just my start and at the end of 28 days to let everyone know the results. With that being said It kills me to type this but to hold myself accountable I have to put it out there. My current weight for the start of the program is 561lbs. Yeah you read that right. So I got a lot of work to do to get to 399lbs. I pick 399 because when I sit back and try to remember being 3 anything I can’t.

The bottom line is that I’m not dumb & I know I need help. There’s nothing magical…NO PILL, NO SHAKE, NO FOOD….. THE MAGIC IS ME

Happy Holiday’s

happy holiday'sJust wanted to post real quick Happy Holiday’s to everyone and  that Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays. Spending time with family & good friends is good for the soul. The girls had a great Christmas and We enjoyed spending the day with Amy’s (Wife) family. Looking forward to getting together with my side of the family next weekend.

I’m looking forward to next year and what the new year brings. I’ve made a decision to attend FitBloggin this year where I haven’t been the past 2 conferences. I’m also looking forward to jumping on the Personal Trainer Food Recon Program and my food should be here a week from today. Stay tuned to that as I’ll be documenting the whole process and giving you all my thoughts. I really think it’s going to kick-start my routine.

Everyone knows I can lose weight even myself. I’ve done it time and time again. My issue is that when success hits I find an excuse to ruin all my hard work. My goal for 2016 is to learn someway some how to fight through that. FitBloggin is 7 months away and my goal is to be 399lbs when that time arrives. I won’t say my current weight just yet as I’m putting all that together for PTF Recon program and tracking my progress.

I wish everyone a very happy holiday and an exciting new year.

Giveaway of Gear & New News

Wow, this all seems foreign to me. Where have I been? Have you still been losing the weight? What happened?

These are all valid questions and I will answer them best I can and then get into some positive new news.

I’ve been around and quite. I was in the thick of things as far as #NSNG and was rocking when I took a nose dive when my job changed and log hours and bad habits creeped back in on me. Along with the stress came a layoff and that sparked another dive. So quick answer, I’ve not been losing weight. In fact I’ve gained all my hard work back and some. I haven’t been at the gym and I’ve been killing myself again with the food and choices I’ve been making.

Now comes some positive news. I’ve landed prob the best job I could have asked for. 2 months in I got promoted and it really feels like a family and home. Homelife is good as well. I’m really enjoying life at the moment with the exception of my health. I recently had some nerve damage in my left leg that all I can compare it to is imagine your thigh being asleep and tingling for 24 hours. This has died down and same as always the doctor advised me to lose weight.

Now comes present right now at this moment. I was approached by the company Personal Trainer Food to join their RECON program. Link in my sidebar. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. A program with all ready prepared food that is #NSNG approved. I’ve checked the meal plan and it rocks! Food I like and they take the guess work out of making the food. I’m an on the fly kind of guy and this program matches that lifestyle. I’m ecstatic with the partnership with Personal Trainer Food and will be documenting my journey on their program and providing updates. Please check them out and if interested they’re giving all my readers a 75$ discount on the program for the whole month of January. So stay tuned for updates.

I’ve also spoken with Vinnie & Anna again and that Podcast should be up in a few days and I’m back to blogging again. All very good things. It does feel good to be back. Gear Giveaway Gear Giveaway
