I was incarcerated in 2017. It was that day I decided I wanted to be in the best shape and frame of mind mentally and physically when I am released; never looking back at the bad choices I made. I have two years left until my release. I believe to reach these goals I must be both mentally and physically fit. I strive to remain on a strict diet and have a dedicated workout routine.
The diet that works best for me is a fasting type diet where I only eat four hours out of the day, starting after my workout and ending after I eat dinner. I eat as much protein as possible, limit my carb intake, and drink lots of water. The physical part of my routine involves heavy weights or weight lifting six days a week, with cardio every other day to help burn extra calories. I like to focus on one body part a day (arms, legs, chest, back, shoulders, and then legs again) followed by a day’s rest.
After mentally committing to this routine, I have shown great results. When I first came to Orofino I weighed 170 lbs.; my current weight is 203 lbs and my body fat percentage is at 11%. I have not yet reached my goals, but I have come a long way.
If you ever have any questions regarding fitness, both mentally and physically, I am willing to give you the advice I have learned over the years.
