Day 50: The halfway mark.. Am I the same guy? [Retrospect]

8

This day represent the halfway mark of my 100 day challenge. When I got the idea, my first biggest obstacle I had to overcome was my love for the food. Like I mentioned in the previous post (check it out HERE), during this period I’ve eaten my fare share of candy, muffins, ice cream and pretty much everything people would consider “unhealthy”. Did I feel bad that I “broke” my diet? No, the eating unhealthy part (in a controlled manner)  IS part of the diet, (MIND BLOWN). Thinking back on my previous attempts on eating healthier, this is by far the longest period I’ve succeeded in sticking to my diet plan. And let me tell you, it feels pretty damn good.

“When you achieved a goal and worked hard to reach it, there’s no other awesome feeling like it.”

When I have people over, I don't serve chips anymore, I give them chicken, raw, cold ass chicken, with DAT FACE.

It’s crazy how fast this challenge is going, and how much I’ve improved on my lifestyle in just 50 days. For you readers that are new to the blog, the reason why I started this idea was to regain my control on my body and eating habits. What I wanted to achieve with this was 1) To feel sexy again; 2) Show my future kids how awesome their dad looked back in the days; 3) Show to people that getting in shape isn’t that hard. I made up a plan where I went through these following topics, I’ve linked the posts on each part:

  1. The Goals, [LINK] what do I want to achieve?
  2. The Workout, [LINK] Reverse Pyramid training on a 9 day-cycle.
  3. The Challenge, [LINK] Setting up a public challenge, me against the readers, If I lose I buy them EACH a dinner.
  4. The Diet, [LINK] 30% workout 70% diet is what’s needed for me to get in shape.
  5. The Weekly Weigh-in, [LINK] My documentation on my progress, fat control, weekly pics and measurements.
  6. The Rehab, [LINK] I fell off my longboard a few months back on my shoulder, in the progress of fixing it.

    At 12 reps now on my chins, will go for 20 reps by the end of the challenge, LETS GO!

I know that it’s just gone 50 days but there are already noticeable changes. These are the things that has changed since I started with the challenge (for better or worse):

Positive changes:

  • I can already state that I’m in better shape then when I started, (Captain Obvious).
  • My tummy doesn’t do those weird morning grunts sounds anymore.
  • If I pass by a mirror, I turn to it and say, “who’s that sexy man in the mirror? Oh, its just me” *Giggle attack*
  • Confidence is growing not only in appearance, but also at work and the way I approach new people.
  • I cook more of my food nowadays.
  • I make better use of my time compared to how I was before.
  • Rehab is part of my everyday routine, it’s a new acquired habit.
  • English grammar skills has improved…. slightly…

The “less” positive changes:

  • I need to constantly go up and pee during the night… Like an old fuck.
  • If I pass by a mirror, I turn to it and say, “who’s that sexy man in the mirror? Oh, its just me” *Giggle attack*
  • I tend to go more often shirtless around the apartment, my room mate hates me now (Sorry äggmannen and Narvin-Hoe).
  • Taking a selfies has never felt this good…ever
  • Still can’t figure out the difference between “than” and “then” when I’m writing in the blog.
  • Writing these posts and cooking my own meals take a big chunk of my time.
  • I’m starting to believe that I look like the Green Hulk but in fact I’m still the same Yellow Asian Man.
  • I still want to eat a pizza, however the craving isn’t as strong as before.
  • I’m currently the “he needs to eat a sallad with high protein or he won’t join us” – friend.
Lets go for another 50 days, are you guys with me? Like and comment and give some support!

I still have one more thing on my game plan that I need to do. Since I know how I get when things are going my way (lazy and content), this last topic is needed. Check out my next post, this one is gonna be fun.

Work hard, eat hard, sleep…hard?
