?Do or do not there is no try? ? Yoda
There is no try in this program either just put my head down for the grind. I have been checking out this forum for a while and finally scraped up the pennies and the gumption to give it a go. I personally appreciate the blogs that are not just a series of numbers on losses. While motivating in their own way I already understand mentally that this program will work so the ADD factor kicks in and I get bored.
So I am forcing myself to be much more verbose than I normally am about me. This will do two things. #1: Hopefully show the reality of the program and inspire others working toward their goals. #2: (Much like the forum hottie cheerleader Lisa explained in her much visited blog) I would like the story laid out for me to remember.
I would also like for my son to be able to one day look back at some of the things in his dad?s life. Which brings me to the motivation for all this, (not that yalls stories are not inspirational but other focuses in my life are more important:
#1 is my son I am not going to be one of those fat dads that pass on all kinds of bad habits to him.
#2 Women. Isn?t this always a motivation if you are male? It is time to start looking again and it aint gonna happen in this body. In the interest of full disclosure I must admit that #2 often becomes #1.
Ok there is the motivation what are the goals?
#1 be able to move and keep up with a 2 year old without dying i.e. conditioning (vague I know but I need a baseline on this one check back on this after the first V-Burn challenge
#2 Look good nekkid. BF in the low teens if not single digits (yep plagiarized the first part from another blog Thanks!)
#3 Start an educated fitness plan (already accomplished 1 down 2 to go)
The plan: V-Burn 3.0 6 weeks ? 1 month recovery Weight plan yet to be determined but looking for a strength builder for this time (any suggestions would be appreciated) consistent NEPA through biking to work initiated ? Vburn 3.0 6 weeks ? reward of weeklong whitewater rafting trip through the grand canyon with inspiration #2.
The challenges: 25 years of bad eating habits ? This is just the right mental attitude
#2 Time: This one is going to be tough: My weekday after 2 days
5:30 out of bed for NEPA (elliptical while catching up on financial news or a favorite show)
6:30-7:00: ready shakes and self for the rest of the day
7:00-12:00: job 1
12:00-1:00: read T-Nation and small walk to stay active (Job 1 is all at a desk)
1-4:30: Job 1
4:30-5:00: drive to Job 2 while slamming shake
5:00-11:00 Job 2 serving tables can?t mention the name but think national chain with Chinese food
11:00-11:20 drive home
11:30 -12:00 workout
As you can see there is not a lot of wiggle room here so I am going to be looking for help and tips here from time to time. (No pun intended)
Question #1: Where should I put shake # 5 in the day?
1 goes on the way to work, 2 at lunch, 3 between jobs, and 4 after work. I?m thinking possibly about 10:00am but what have yall done?
OK definitely verbose but got the plan and the players laid out. SOOOOOO
Ladies and Gentlemen in this corner fueled by wings, beer, and laziness the belly blubber
And its opponent fueled by determination, sweat and the V-Burn the Dan
Leeettttts get ready to kick some a**
