The Day is Upon Us! IT IS TIME FOR MY ANNOUNCEMENT
Without further ado, I'm finally going to make my big announcement: I quit my day job. That's right, you heard me...done, quit, jumped off the cliff and there's no safety net. I am a free agent and I'm going to set the artist free! (Probably just end up getting another job).
There, announcement over, and now its time to fully commit to Operation Savage Fist.
Since I'm now unemployed, I figure its going to take a bit of time to find a new gig and I plan on using that time to throw myself at my nutrition and fitness regimen. Gone are the days of me snacking and boozing and carrying on like some kind of cretin. Operation Savage Fist isn't about decadence, Operation Savage Fist is about enjoying life, taking care of the body, and getting myself ready for whatever comes next. Respect Operation Savage Fist or be run over by it!
I got on the scale this am and have determined that I need to lose 42 pounds. If you're about to rapidly scroll down hoping for a 'before' photo with me being shirtless, you can just fucking forget it. I don't need public scorn and ridicule, I need motivation. I need Operation Savage Fist to work like a champ and be slicker than Katie's legs.
This morning I hit the gym for a massive upper body workout. Tomorrow will be cardio day, and so forth. I plan on mixing in many adventures with my beloved bike Serena too!
If you follow the Gut Chronicles, you'll note that exercise really isn't my issue. My issue is shoveling massive amounts of food and booze into my gullet and just going for it on a daily basis. So clearly, if Operation Savage Fist is going to work, I need to get back on the nutrition plan as well.
My lunch today was a delicious tortilla crusted talapia served over micro greens and salsa with a nice side of quinoa. Check it out folks (first pic is just the food, 2nd pick is the wife enjoying her post workout portion)
