Continuing my journey
 
Hello,
My name is Chuck Arbogast and I will be joining the transformation contest again. My official start day is today, January 11th but my first workout will be Monday.

I will be using the Thermogenic 30 2.0 for the first 4 weeks and then Buff Dudes & Hot Chicks 2.0 for the second 4 weeks. I haven't figured out what I will be doing for the last 4 weeks but I have time to figure that out. My goal is to decrease my body fat % and my belly.

I will be doing a form of intermittent fasting for my nutrition plan.

I am 39 years old (will be 40 in July) and 5' 10" tall.
My starting measurements:
Weight: 196.8 lbs
Belly (around navel/love handle area): 40"
Waist: 36.5"
Body Fat %: 23.3% with the 3-site Jackson & Pollock method using a BodyMetrix Personal Ultrasound device.

Anyone following me on the last contest knows that I gained weight since the end. I had a bad time with my nutrition and exercise during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Holiday eating is my crutch. I hope during this contest I will stay true to my exercise and nutrition and get closer to where I want to be.

I'm not in this contest to win it. I need to to be held accountable for my actions. I seem to do better when others are watching.

Anyway, I intend on updating my progress on my normal weigh-in day, which are on Saturdays.

Good luck to all the contestants,
Chuck Arbogast

Good luck, Chuck. Make it a lifestyle! Thermo 30 is a good one!

Welcome back Chuck. And good news. We're a long way from the holidays. Time to make it a lifestyle, as Rob said. Great work!

Hi Chuck! I started the contest on Friday. It sounds like you've got a plan! Here's to good health and new (lifelong) habits! Leslie

Thanks to all of you for your words of encouragement!

Yes, Chuck, welcome back. I'm in it for the second time as well, and I remember you from TC 17. Looking forward to improving habits together!

Good luck Chuck

Thanks for all for the words of encouragement.

Week one is in the books and I could tell I took too many weeks off from training. The soreness was bad for a few days. Anyway, the first week of Thermogenic 30 2.0 went well. I really liked it.

I did well with my nutrition. I am starting a new way to eat this coming week. It is basically 16/8 Intermittent Fasting. I'm going to try that out and see how it goes.

I saw a 2 pound decrease in weight this week and no change on my waist or belly measurements. I don't plan on checking my body fat % every week, so I will report that progress at times.

Have a great week,
Chuck

Thanks Chuck, stay strong!
