A New Year Means The Lean Look Challenge Re-revisited Again...

Alright, this may seem like déjà vu. I assure you, it seems like déjà vu to me too, so I assume we are OK. For those of you who are regular readers, you might remember back to A New Year Means The Lean Loon Challenge Revisited or if you really keep up you may remember back to Weekly Roundup June 18. At that time I purchased the bookThe Lean Look: Burn Fat, Tone Muscles and Transform Your Body in Twelve Weeks Using the Secrets of Professional Athletes by Paul Goldberg and Matthew Fitzgerald. Full title, yada yada, über long, etc., keep reading please.

Anyhow, I slacked off a bit, again, lately and need to get a bit more serious now to get in shape for my ride in the Philadelphia LIVESTRONG Challenge in August. Also I just generally need to be a brick shit house as soon as possible.

Once again my friend and neighbor to the (extreme) North Thom aka: Bluenoser will be joining me. But this time we'll both be joined by the one and only Harp! I will be posting my measurements and the like on Mondays by about 9:00 am. I'm not sure about Bluenoser or Harp, so be sure to keep up with their blogs.

So there you have it, the Lean Look Challenge® 2009, again! I encourage you to keep up, not only, with my progress but Bluenoser's and Harp's progress as well. it should be pretty cool, especially since Bluenoser and I are about the same height, weight, etc, I'm not entirely sure of Harp's stats right now, but I'm excited to start up again, and who knows, maybe I'll get around to getting the weight bench I've been meaning to pick up for about four months or so now, courtesy my 'lil sis'.

So here's what the numbers look like this morning. Fair warning, I'm going to redo them for tomorrow and will repost them if there is a big change. Admittedly I think there will be a pretty big drop once I get some fiber (yeah, low fiber weekend), and water. I think this is skewed by a metric ton of salt, a load of carbs, and a couple beers and some wine with the wife before bed. So, again, if it's a pretty drastic change tomorrow I'll update. For now...

Weight: 188.1
Waist: 37
Neck: 15.5
Body Fat % Calculation Estimate: 22

I'll have my numbers up tonight after I get home from work. I took the measurements this morning but I forgot what they were exactly.
