Fitness Progress|Fitness-Fortschritte

The past few months have been rather busy. Don't take this the wrong way, though, I enjoy being busy. Most of the changes I went through in these months (and I'm still going through some of them) have been for the better and I'm very much looking forward to the things to come.

I'm most proud of the fact that I was able to get my work life balance “in order”. I've been working out regularly since April – on average, I either hit the gym or went for a run on every other day, which can be seen in this screenshot of my fitness calendar.

I did some sort of work out on the highlighted days

I read The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss (who once again proved that he's more of a marketer than an author) and tried to follow some of the guidelines, which translate to: “Cut the carbs, eat more protein.” I'm usually huge on “German breakfast” and by that I mean all sorts of stuff from the bakery, like Danish pastries, chocolate breadrolls, etc., so that was a pretty big change for me. I tried to eat more eggs for breakfast, much to the delight of my better half who loves English breakfast…

A steak omelette was one of the highlights in my new breakfast routine!

Without further ado, here are some “before – after pics” to show you my progress first hand:

Now is that a happy face or what?! - February 2013Shortly before my 30th birthday in August, I'm in pretty decent shape.

I'm very happy with my progress so far and I'm not done yet. Hopefully, there will be a World of Warcraft TCG World Championship in November and I can show all of my international friends some more progress. We called out a weight loss competition and we posted some status updates on facebook tagged #rippedbyworlds.

We got some awesome competitors who already lost more than 40 pounds, putting my efforts to shame (I clocked in at 90 kg at the start of the year and I'm now sporting around 78 kgs, so I lost like 26 pounds). Still, I'm not mad and I'll continue to try and get this six pack going.
