Im back

Sorry ive been away for a couple of days. Tuesday i worked out fine and thursday i worked fine just like normal. and i was eating right up until thursday. But thursday night my stomach started hurting and it kept hurting so i didnt workout on friday and then i went to a walk in clinic to see if they could make the pain go away. The Doctor was concern that it might be my appendix so he sent me to the hospital for more testing. I stayed there until 11 pm on friday. They ran test and couldn't figure out what it was so they sent me home. I still hurt a little but not much but needless to say i did not work out of eat well since thursday. SO i'm a little off but i'm back and eating right and will start working out on tuesday again as normal. Sorry for the delay but thats all i've got.

Any who now time for the numbers and the pictures. The first number is from two weeks ago when i started keeping track. Please keep in mind that the most accurate number is my weight the rest is not a very accurate science.

Weight: 252.5 - 240.5
Arms: 14.5 inches - 16 inches
Legs: 29 inches - 29 inches
Waist: 45 inches - 42 inches
Belly: 45.5 inches - 45 inches
Chest: 47 inches - 45.5 inches

Before Present

So not a huge difference in the pictures but soon it will be. So thats all i've got. Im going to go watch Weeds with my wife.

Well. its been one week. I have kept to the diet and the workout plan pretty closely. So now its time for the weekly update. I have weighted and measured myself again. My body is as followed

Weight: 245 lbs
Arms: 15 inches
Legs: 28 inches
Waist: 41.5 inches

A note on how I feel
I feel ok. I dont feel like i've lost 7 pounds but i dont as big as i did last week. i haven't been hungry really and if i am i just eat something small. But yeah i was a good week.

Tomorrow is Ashley's first day of work. So we are going to eat out. After talking to friends and reading i am going to have a cheat meal once a week. I'm not going to eat a cake or meat but i will eat something not so healthy. So that meal will be monday night.

Ashley as also been eating better and working out. she has done very well this week and i am very proud of her. I know next week will be hard for her with a job and all and trying to eat well but i have no doubt that she can do it.

so today was legs and abs. I hate this day. We all hate this day. But i did it. Here was today's workout


Leg Press
Sit ups on a swiss ball
side abs
calves raises
Legs lifts (for the abs)

and then i walked for about 30mins.

Yesterday i did get 180 grams of protein. that is harder than you would think.

And lastly Ashley did get that job. She is a infant teacher. This is good for the following reasons.

1) she is making money
2) she is out of the house and not lonely
3) she is getting her baby fixed with out it costing me anything.

This one is for you Jason Bragg

so to make jason happy here was my workout for the first day.

Dumbbell Press 3x8
Tricep extension with rope 3x8
Dumbbell Flys 3x8
Overhead dumbbell thingy 3x8
Incline dumbbell Press 3x8
single arm tricep kick out thingy 3x8
Cable decline lift thingy 3x8

The gym i workout in doesn't have any barbells so everything is done with cables or dumbbells.

I only ate 150 grams of protein today. I was at a different studio today and he doesn't allow food in the studio so i couldn't eat like i had planned. But tomorrow should be different. ok good night


so today I started my new work out. I did 12 sets on chest and 9 sets on triceps. I also did 15 mins of walking and 20mins of the elliptical machine keeping my heart rate between 150 and 160 beats a minutes. I also wake up at 7:30 and ate 3 eggs before workout and drank a protein shake after work out.

A note about diet. I am to eat 180 grams of protein a day. This is not easy but I think I can do it. I also want to eat less at each meal and eat more meals.

Anyways i'm off to the studio. later.

An Experiment With My Body.

My name is Tyler Kyle Browder. I am 5'10ish. I have brown hair and a brown/yellow/red beard. I weight 252.5 pounds as of tonight. Starting tonight I will be conducting an experiment on my body. I have taken measurements and pictures of my body as it currently looks. I have not photoshopped any of the pictures or changed any of the measurements. I will be starting a new workout routine this week and every time I workout I will be posting a blog about what I did that day in the gym. My goal is to look good naked. I will be taking weekly measurements and and weighing in every Sunday evening. I might take pictures but I might not. I want to be healthy. So first I will show what I am now and then tell you what I want to be in the future and how I plan on doing this.

Weight: 252.5 (with boxers on)
Biceps: 14.5 inches
Thighs: 29 inches
Waist: 45 inches
Belly: 45.5 inches
Chest: 47 inches

That is where I'm at. This is where I want to go.


Weight: 215
I want to wear a size 32 jeans comfortably. I want only my chest to touch my shirt not my chest and belly. I want to look good naked. I want to do this by Christmas. I dont want to take any supplements other then protein shakes and what not.

That's the beginning and the end and here is the vehicle.

MY WORKOUT ( Thank you Jason Bragg)

Sunday: Off
Monday: Off
Tuesday - Chest & Triceps
Wednesday - Off
Thursday - Back & Biceps
Friday - Legs & Abs
Saturday - Shoulders & Traps

I will do this workout this way due to my work schedule at the studio. I will also be doing cardio as well. In 4 weeks I plan on changing my workout to keep my body guessing but I have not chosen how I will change it. I will also be changing my diet as best I can. More on this later.

Lastly i will along with my workouts be taking notes on how i feel not just phyiscally but also emotionally.


I feel tired and slow. I feel full and uncomfortable most of the time. I feel weak and completely out of shape.

So there it is. I am doing this online so I will have accountability to stick to my workout and reach my goals. I hope my readers will help me and get on to me if I cheat. Ok. I'm done.

so if you dont know Brand New's new CD comes out on September 22nd. they just posted the first single off of the CD on their myspace. The song is called "At The Bottom". Check it out. Thats all.

Speak where the Bible Speaks and be silent where the Bible is slient

This is the grand thinking behind most of the doctrine of the Church of Christ. The other guiding motto is that they want to follow the example of the first church in the book of Acts. Now stay with me here. It has become almost biblical that all christians should be Republican and pro freedom and go America. That is an interesting stand for christian, to be more specific, Church of Christer's to take. To be all about democracy and all about doing what the Bible saids and what the first church did. I wonder what Bible they read. Cause to be honest i've never read about democracy in the Bible. Read this:

"32All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. 33With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all. 34There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need." Acts 4:32-34

Now that doesn't sound like a democracy. That sounds a lot like Communism. Sharing everyones possessions. Selling they homes and giving the money the people in charge so that no one would be in need. Don't get me wrong this is a great and wonderful thing. A world where no one needs anything is a world we know nothing of. But it sure the heck sounds more like a communist then a republican.

I'm not saying that the Bible is communism over democracy. In fact I'm saying that the Bible isn't talking about politics at all. The Bible is silent about stating what is the holiest government form. I think christians should to. May G-d forgive us for speaking about what we don't know. We are all fools yelling at the wind.
