I am on a mission to lose 35lbs in 3 months. I have never been one to look up diets and count calories, I just kind of "ate healthy" to lose weight/get in shape. However, this is the most weight I have had to lose and I am in the worst shape of my life. I am currently in the Air Force and stationed at Ramstein, Germany. I am 22 years old, 6'2", and 230lbs. When I first arrived here 1 year ago I was only 190lbs and when I joined the Air Force, I was 185lbs (I partied and drank beer way too often). I plan on picking up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu again (I did it for a year and wrestled in high school) as well as running and doing calisthenics. I will probably do each activity 3-4 days a week. The AF fitness test is comprised of being able to do a certain amount of push-ups and sit-ups in a minute and running 1.5 miles in a specific amount of time. I have never had an issue with push-ups. I always get close to maxing out on sit-ups. The run is an issue for me. When I first joined the AF I got 10:50 and last year I got 11:15 on the run. I tried to run every day starting 3 months out from my test and wound up with my shins feeling awful and not being able to do anything. Anyone have advice on this issue? I plan on cutting out all alcohol from my diet. I will be random fruits, oatmeal, beans, rice, chicken, and soup while snacking on fruits and almonds throughout the day. The hardest part of this diet is convenience. I work 12 hour days, 6am-6pm, take college courses, and facetime with my girlfriend from my hometown a lot. So, in the past instead of staying true to my diet, I would get lazy and order a pizza or wings. Its also difficult to follow this diet because I am in Germany! I spend my free time travelling to different countries with friends and drinking too much. Last year I got up to 215 and was able to get down to 195 for my PT test while breaking my diet and not exercising as much as I should have. I think I can get lose this weight if I really focus and don't get distracted. Please, give me some feedback and tips on losing the weight. Thank you all PS- Thinking of buying a bike and doing some cycling while I'm in Germany. I really enjoyed cycling back home but I'm not sure if I should do it here. I live in the dorms and wouldn't be able to take my bike inside, plus it rains A LOT here.
