Who’s Staying In Shape During Quarantine?

So, let’s skip the formalities and get straight to the point, son. Who’s staying in shape during quarantine, man? Who’s put on the COVID 15? On the real, as a collective, it feels like we’re all over the place, fam. I mean, it seems like a small percentage of us have stayed relatively the same. For the rest of us, we’re either battling weight gain or have been fortunate enough to lose a couple of pounds. All in all, how’s everyone doing out there?

Ok, I’ll keep it a buck, bruh. Real talk, I was doing better in the earlier days of the quarantine. Hell, between work, music, the blog and helping my kids with remote learning, I was/am generally crunched for time. So, I started to really embrace circuit training. Like, being able to cram a bunch of exercises into a short period of time was/is very beneficial to me, son. However, my progress has slowed down since the birth of my daughter. Shit, at this point, I’m SUPER sleep-deprived and running on ungodly amounts of coffee. But, luckily, I haven’t put on any additional weight. Thanks to the work that I put in at the beginning of the quarantine, I was able to lose an extra ten pounds. So far, I haven’t put it back on. All I know is, I better get to working out again to ensure that it stays that way, man.

In the end, how’s everyone else’s fitness journey going? Has the pandemic been kind to folks (besides the potential sickness and threat of unemployment)? Ultimately, I have no idea when life will be back to “normal.” All I can say is, I want to still be able to fit my clothes when it does. That is all. LC out.

Operation Get Up Off My A*s

Keeping it a buck, I’m already regretting this post as I write it, son. In any case, today is a new day for me, man. As of right now, I’ve decided to make a looooong overdue lifestyle change. Basically, it’s about time that I get my ass back in shape, fam. All I know is, I moved up in age yesterday and I should be doing better with my health. With that being said, this is the beginning of my road back to flyness, bruh. Here we go!

Now, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t keep it all the way real. So, anyone who knows me knows that I’m married and a father of two. Anyway, I was in decent shape when I only had one kid. However; when my second youngin popped up, I fell allllllll the way off, son. For example, when my second child was born in 2014, I was 6’3″ and 220 pounds. Fast forward to 2016, I somehow ballooned to 265. Yeah, I know, son. I know.

Moving on, as I write this, I’ve already made it back down to 245. However; I still have a long way to go, son. On the real, food is my problem, man. I mean, I LOVE terrible food, fam. By and by, I’ve always been able to get away with my eating habits because I was an athlete growing up. But, once that adult life started to kick in, I no longer had the cheat code, bruh. I was able to skate by through most of my 20s, but I hit the wall in 2014.

So, here we are, fam. I’m finally getting back in the gym and doing what I need to do. Shout-out to my brother Kofi Ofori-Ansah and SOTBG for hitting me up with a program. From this point on, I’ll be giving updates on how all of this shit is going, y’all. Here goes nothing, fam!

In the end, if anyone else is on a “Get Up Off My Ass” type of journey, feel free to share any progress. On the real, that could definitely help keep me motivated, son. Let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, man. LC out.
