I'm still not to my intermediate goal of 20% body fat, but I think I can get there with some discipline. I need to do some kind of exercise every day which gets my heart racing and makes me sweat. I currently have basketball twice a week and squash once a week, but basketball will end soon. I usually go running once a week, but I'll probably backfill with burpees and mountain climbers. They aren't much fun, but are certainly effective. I wouldn't mind taking some boxing classes as well so I can learn to punch well enough to get my own speed and heavy bags. I think it would be a great stress reliever and would help get me closer to my goal of being jacked/ripped. I'm certainly enjoying the process.
I ate a lot of gluten over the holiday and I could tell it was slowing me down since I feel much better now since I haven't had any intentionally since Wednesday night. I feel pretty good actually and that's always a good thing.
It still amazes me that I've lost nearly 30 fat pounds over the past five years. I'm embarrassed I chunked out that much, but I think I'm headed in the correct direction. I definitely do a lot of walking at work because our complex is large.
