Default Shawn's adventures in Transformation land

I didn't introduce myself yet. My name is Shawn.
I am continuing my transformation. I have lost 42 lb so far.
I did join the 18th contest but didn't get my photos so I couldn't win... I actually had a bit of a plateau during the last few months when I hit around 40 pounds lost. I went backward a slight bit through the holidays but I am down the holiday weight and It finally seems to be moving again Of course I know the scale is not the best measure but in my case as I lose body fat,the number will inevitably move. I started the 19th Transformation contest at 205. I am doing well getting in my TT workouts and eating cleaner again.

"If you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, itíll spread over into the rest of your life. Itíll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." One of my favorite Bruce Lee quotes.

Time to go beyond!

I did have my hubby take before photos this time

Shawn

I wanted to take a minute just to be grateful
I am very blessed. I have 6 wonderful children ages 29(on Monday), 26, 22,20,12,8
I have a supportive husband and I actually could go on for awhile


I am a fan of IF. Yesterday I started my fast at 3 pm. I am going to end it at 11 am.
I didn't want to go into work at noon today in the fasted state. I work at a Memphis style BBQ restaurant. I figure it's better to end my fast just before I go in rather than break my fast with BBQ. If I eat at work I have been going with chicken breast. The safest option. It's funny, you can tell the mindset changes that are taking place as I used to love their cornbread but read the ingredient list one day....I don't even eat it on my treat days anymore. HFCS is one of the top ingredients!

For awhile I thought my two jobs were at war...LOL. I am a certified personal trainer, ACE certified for group fitness and lots of CEC's (my ACE requirements). I was also blessed enough to be part of the live TT certification in Lapeer last November. I own my own boot camp business and work the desk at Anytime Fitness (to pay my rent for boot camp and training). As I mature in my transformation I realize it's all about choices. My restaurant job is only a war if I let it be! I can have chicken and skip the fries and corn bread. I can eat steamed green beans not deep fried green beans. The choice is mine!

I was the fat fitness professional for years! I have been through a lot of challenges in my life, I will give insight into that another day. It wasn't that I didn't know what to do. I made the choices not to apply my knowledge. My diet and alcohol consumption were out of control. That was the sole reason for my lack of transformation, my choices to medicate with food and alcohol. I knew better! No excuses!

Let your choices move you closer to your transformation not further away!
You know what to do...Do it! (for myself or anyone else who needed that)
Shawn
