Dan Nied's 100 Days is the chronicle of one man's quest to improve his health in 100 days. Feel free to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments you might have
I don’t know that there is much to talk about today. It was a decent day, got a good workout in. However, I did fall back into the Subway/diet dinners trap again. Oh well, what are you gonna do? I just gotta go shopping tomorrow. That usually stops the outside food intake for a while.
You know, it’s pretty amazing to me how far I have come in such a short amount of time. I don’t think I’ve reached lifestyle change status yet, but certainly I have taken some huge steps towards it. My confidence is steadily growing in almost every personal respect. I am constantly rubbing my arms to feel the brand new muscle mass developing. (Though there is still a long way to go in the toning department.)
You know, when I started this, it seemed like I was so far away from this point. Maybe I was in regards to weight. After all, I’ve lost 77 pounds so far. That’s not exactly a walk in the park. But as far as time goes, I wasn’t far away at all. Here I am, only three and a half months after I began, and my old self is in the past. Although, considering that I thought I could lose 100 pounds in 100 days, I was obviously counting on a dramatic change.
But to actually have it happen is kind of astonishing. I’ve never gone through anything like this before. There has never been any sort of complete makeover in any aspect of my life. It is almost like the transition from high school to college. I am moving into a different stage of my life, and that is kind of cool.
