Day 23 (17) Since I used to wrestle....
(203) For years I wrestled and got into the habit of weighing myself first thing everyday. Before food, water or anything else besides going to the bathroom first of course. Many people would say it is not mentally healthy to weigh yourself daily. To me my weight is not something that affects my daily progress or mental outlook so it does not bother me. It is a simple habit that I have done for years. By checking my weight daily a couple lbs up or a couple lbs down (which could make a 4 lb swing sometimes). The scale depends a lot on what I have eaten in the last day or so and I understand that. My normal diet doesn't vary a ton so I get a good idea what my actual weight is. When I started this challenge my weight was the lowest I have been in 10 years. 192 lbs! I was watching what I ate by my portions and that helped a lot. Today I am weighing 203 lbs! I have gained 11 lbs. By saying that I also know it is partly due to the lack of lifting I had been doing before Squatober. I can tell I have lost some extra fat but gained leg mass. I may start adding my weight to the beginning of each blog like (203). Another thing I have noticed as well as my wife is the strength and more definition in my mid section with abs. This makes sense because it is a major stabilizer for squats. They are getting worked everyday! This weeks workout is a bit shorter but the Dumbbell rear foot elevated split squats from today was a great change to do a few of those. I bet i will be a bit sore from those tomorrow.

Hi my name is Trever Duncan. I started Fit24 in the Summer of 2013. I have always loved fitness but have fallen away from it over the past few years (crazy to imagine having started a fitness center). Although I remain active through my various hobbies on my small property and enjoyment of moving things which has allowed me to keep my strength up to an extent. My first true fascination was running. I failed in the 5th grade on winning the mile so I decided to run everyday for a whole year. My 6th grade year I came back after self training running a 5:56 mile. My second love was wrestling which has been my favorite ever since I failed by getting cut by the 8th grade basketball team. Therefore started to wrestle. Thank God I did. I ended up winning my high schools top athlete award by my senior year and having(https://house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills03/hlrbillspdf/4178C.01.pdf). Funny how failure leads to success. And this is were I had decided to start blogging to show others sometimes the best success comes from failure or at least mine have!
