Save to say we all go through phases of wanting to lose weight/tone up/lean out/build muscle/etc.. For me this is losing weight and being strong. My 2 body goals.
So my overall goal is to lose around 100 pounds and build my strength. I realize this is not going to happen even close to over night but I’m willing to work at it for a long time because I want my lifestyle to change not be a fad.
So being a previous athlete who has gained weight from medication and health, and bad eating habits – I know a little about working out and nutrition. It’s just about getting back there. So my plan for now:
Nutrition: High protein, low carb. Eat eat eat your meat (and alternatives). And some low carb veggies and low sugar fruit. Some people go extreme but if I’m craving and pb & j sandwich I’ll have it but I mainly strive to eat clean.
Workout: I range and aim to hit 20-45 minutes of cardio (been loving cycling) and then weights for about 10-20 minutes. I write out a plan for myself and target different muscle regions on different days to alternate and allow for max rest and push when each is needed.
So far I am down 6.4 pounds! Only 93.6 left !
