Here's my deal....any advice would be appreciated! I'm sure I'll mostly end up talking to myself.
I'm 29 for all intents and purposes. I've finally found enough motivation to want to do something about the way I look. I'm 6-2, wavering around a little over 200 Lbs (208 last time I was weighed) I wouldn't say I'm hugely "fat", no "obese" at all.
I have "the gut" and the "moobs" It's disgusting. I absolutely hate the way i look in a shirt.
After Rachael had Sienna, she lost a good amount of weight and didn't seem to do anything real crazy. Ate well, chased the kid around and she was losing some good weight before she got preggo again.
I've started trying to do things better. I believe I get plenty of "physical activity" between being an Auto Tech (up/down, pick up heavy shit (tires) all day, humping the wife almost daily and chasing kids. I also just don't have much time for "extra" stuff. I have started doing some incline push-ups on the stairs in the house. I do about 8 reps 4 times. (hoping these help with the man-boobs thing a little) My work is a little like Cardio, in my view a little at least., On my feet, moving all day.
My biggest problem was food. Lots of fast food, espeically for lunch breaks on work. This is changing, no more of that stuff. Trying to instead eat more banana's, rice/corn chex cereal, oat bars, stuff like that. I will still eat a regular full dinner, but not as much crap as usual. Bake fries. I can't do all this crazy nutty watching calories and stuff. I think I just need to not eat the crap like I was.
I think another big problem has been the pop/soda intake. Diet coke/pepsi is all I was drinking, all day, everyday. Really cut back and am drinking water mostly. Haven't totally taken away the diet soda, one in AM, a luncher maybe and 100% at dinner. The rest is water now. I've read some stuff about how pop can keep quite a bit of weight on a person.
I've always heard that it's actually better to "workout" about 3 times a day for 20-30 minutes than 1 long session. The 3 times a day keeps the metabolism up and what not, this accurate?
Is this a good way to start?
Anything else I can do that would help reduce the appearance of the moobs?
Not trying to be buff as shit. I just want the gut and moobs gone and to not be disgusted by the way I look in a shirt.
