    I'm going to take the Strength and Cardio, I can't live at the moment without copious amounts of Mt. Dew in my life. Will be joining this party late, as I don't have the ability to get that in right at the moment, so it'll wait till tonight.



    181.6 lbs today. 170 by March sounds reasonable. Also, someone is going to be cleaning the bathroom floor, it looks absolutely terrible to my camera.

    I'm going to skip fast food and junk food. In the evenings and weekends, I tend to drink Coke like water... so I might as well switch to water itself.

    I'm researching what type of exercise program to do (starting from nothing). Would love to loose this giant spare tire I've been carrying around for a while now. LOL
    I soooooo wanted some munchies last night, but I was able to hold off. Also no Coke. That was a struggle.

    Do breakfast items from McD's count? Egg McMuffin is only 300 calories. I also have a large glass of orange juice (with Calcium) and coffee in the mornings.

    Going to see about a chef salad for lunch.

    Would subs from Subway also be considered fast food? I usually like a ham and turkey sub with lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, cheese, and honey mustard.

    Absolutely love this. I am already working out for last 2 months and now this makes me keep that going without slipping. My focus is on cardio and strength training. I also watch what I eat and drink most often times! My body weight is 150 lbs. and definitely planning to maintain it or reduce another 3-4 pounds.

    My original plan (thought in mid November):
    Do 45 min of strength training and 45 min of cardio 3 times a week, so totally 6 sessions a week. I do strength and cardio session alternatively so muscle can get good reset between sessions. Somehow I get to do 4 or 5 sessions a week. Getting out of home during the weekend is difficult for me because of 4 year old and sometime laziness in front of the TV.

    Where to work out:
    Gym in my home community. It has couple of strength, cardio machines and dumbbells. I think I can vary my exercise routine using these for a while.

    Time I hit it:
    This was a big concern for me because early morning I have to take my son to school so no enough time to get a good work out. And evening works out good for me. But wait, once I reach home in the evening after work, my son will not allow me to go alone. That was the excuse I gave before, but actually I was lazy to get out!!. So I directly hit the gym in the evening before I go to work.

    Things I learned:
    As I was working for last 2 months, I learned few things that can help some out there. I could not find any good apps (they way I wanted it to work) yet in out app catalog, so basically I prepared a spread sheet which has all the exercises (about 10 focusing on difference muscles on upper body and 10 more on lower body including the ab exercise). I I printed it out one for each month and log the weights, reps and sets that I do for each exercise. This keeps me motivating as I keep filling out the spread sheet.

    Fitness Activity this month:
    Feb 1st: 55 min of strength training focusing on the upper body and abs.

    Definitely looking forward to keep updating my progress mainly to develop the discipline to update! and of course getting the body and mind fit.

    Thanks for reading

    Goal for this week. Get back into the "Insanity" groove.

    OK my first report:
    Last night went to the Gym
    • Did the c25k week one program on the treadmill running pace was only 4.7 alternating with a brisk walk of 3.3. I did put a 3% grade on the machine instead of leaving it at 0.
    • Starting weight this morning of 301 Not my highest ever but would like to lose 100, though obviously not in a single month.
    • Resting heart rate of 67 BPM - Which isn't bad, Mayo clinic says 60-100 is average for adults, other sources say 60-80. 40-50 if you are an "athlete".

    Tonight I'll start trying to assemble a strength training regimen. Will probably go with the following, which is what I was doing about this time last year. 2 sets of 12-15 reps each:
    • Seated Chest Press Machine
    • Seated Leg Extension Machine
    • Seated Leg Curl Machine
    • Heel Raises on Leg Press Machine
    • Preacher Curl Machine
    • Seated Back Extension Machine
    • Seated Triceps Extension Machine
    • Seated Overhead Press Machine
    • Squats on Leg Press Machine
    • Stretch After Strength Training

    Although after that article from Men's Journal I posted a link to earlier I'll probably start working in free weight versions of those instead of using the machines.

    Best of luck to all of you in meeting your goals.

    First report:
    Veggies are tough if you dont think about it in advance. I had finished dinner with just the little bits of celery contained in my chicken soup with rice, and had to go back to the fridge and get a carrot. But then I saw the big-old can of vegetable juice, and topped off my meal with that. I figure it was better than nothing. Unfortunately it certainly was not the 30% of my plate I am shooting for.

    Next week I will have to look at how to get fruits in, because there was nothing. And the week after, maybe kill the sugar, because I had a snack later of icecream that was yummy, but useless.

    Oh, and here is how my TouchPad is going to be helping. I am tracking my meals with TapNote, stored in the cloud on DropBox so i can get to the document on my computer and phone.

    Interesting! What is everyone else doing?

    I have an account at sparkpeople and use their diet/fitness/health trackers. Their mobile site works well in the pre browser but doesn't include all of the features, but their non-mobile site also works reasonably well on the pre, it's just not as easy to use on the small screen. One weakness, the strength training tracker lets you log that you have done each of the exercises you planned to, but doesn't track the weight. I may end up doing a spreadsheet on google apps that I can record info in from my phone.

    Anyone found/using any interesting apps?

    Started P90X and eating right this week - I already feel broken, but it's worth it! It's a little bit of everything!

    I will start with Cardio training . Retake my stationary bike starting with 5 minutes pedaling everyday until I can make 30 minutes on the go everyday again. Play basket-ball every Sunday afternoon again.

    Then I will be ready to play some tennis.

    My goals are to cut out soda, diet or otherwise, and to walk my dogs 15 to 20 minutes most days if not all days of the week.

    I am planning on going back to the gym and giving up soda again -

    While I've been doing this for all of January so far, I'm hoping to continue with it.
    Each week I plan to push harder and do more reps, more weight, run farther.

    - Over the course of the week, I am cutting 500 cals. daily from my diet.
    - I run on the treadmill M-W-F for 30 mins pressing myself to go faster/further within that 30 mins each day.
    - On T-Th, I strength train on a bowflex for 45 mins doing everything from crunches to working the upper and lower body.

    I started using the Fitness Log app on my TouchPad. While the app has some quirks and doesn't do everything I'd like it to, it works for now until it gets better, I find a better app (suggestions welcome!) or create a fancy spreadsheet to track my progress.

    I started today doing the strength training exercises the original post suggested. I have a question though, I hear that it isn't good to do strength training every day. Is there any reason I shouldn't? Would it be better to do different areas each day, rotating from arms to abs to legs and back again?

    2 sets of pushups, situps, squats completed.

    20 minutes of stationary biking completed.

    Slumped in chair exhausted, completed.

    If someone had told High School me that 35 year old me wouldn't be able to do that stuff without being completely winded, I'd have punched them in their face.
