Hey friends, its been awhile! A long while!
Here’s the short and skinny~ Back in spring of 2015 we bought a farm, and then we closed down our business (my baby and primary employment since 2007) in the winter of 2015, and I leaped head first into another career (which was an amazing choice but has also played its toll on me physically) I spend A LOT of time in my car. And I have A LOT of last minute appointments etc which I have struggled balancing with my personal time (AKA not scheduling/keeping gym time, making unhealthy choices therefore making my bathing suit scream. )
During the beginning of 2015 I kept at the workouts and eating etc, but then between work and the farm I slowly started to let habits go and my thinking started to shift. (The farming does help a tonne tho and I have great biceps and can arm wrestle till the death ) Fast forward to now and I am uncomfortable with my level of fitness, overall health, and the extra tire It’s amazing how out of touch I feel with all of this again!
TLDR: Gym junkie turned real estate hustler by day, pig wrestler by night (or wait- is that reveresed??! ) and has since seen the light (or at least that my jeans aren’t fitting all that well and I’m stubborn)
SO What are my goals then?
Here are my thoughts-
I weigh 145 (5’4) which is not horribly over my previous weights BUT I have lost a lot of muscle and strength especially in my legs. I have a spare tire. I would like to focus on fat loss but I am thinking that if I start to dial in nutrition and begin a strength training program (focused on the big lifts and lift heavy) I’ll be on point. I plugged my shit into IIFYM and am just going to start slow, get back into the flow of tracking.
So thats my plan ya’ll-KISS!!
TLDR: track food for 2 weeks. Evaluate. Start strength training. Evaluate. Kick some ass at work. Kick some ass on the farm. Log it
