My goal was to be in the best shape possible by age 60, but I backslid and missed the mark. Started weightlifting a few years ago, but backslid on that after we got our home gym. I realized that having people around kept me motivated, and without that the workout’s rather pathetic! So here I am at 61 years/3 weeks aiming to get back to where I was two years ago to start with, then pushing on further.
I’m back at Anytime Fitness, enjoying the camaraderie which pushes me further than I’d push myself. Last month my son persuaded me to check out the V-Diet as a good kick-start, and after much review I’m starting today.
My goal is as much about body fat as weight, with an ideal range of 122-128 pounds, and 20-24% body fat.
My stats on Day 1:
Body fat: 32% (Omron Monitor, set at Athlete for consistency)
arms: 12 each
chest above: 38
chest below: 34.75
waist @ navel: 35.75
waist @ smallest: 32
thigh L- 23
thigh R- 23.5
I’ll be logging in daily, but checking weight and stats only weekly. Photos only at the end. Will be following other logs for inspiration.
