Well since taking a new job that requires a lot of hours and a rotating schedule that puts me on 12 hour nights my body composition has turned flabby...
It seemed like it was almost overnight and I was on the last hole in my belt! I went from 180 lbs and 10-12% BF to 197 lbs and over 20% BF! This transition only took about 4-6 months to complete!
So I have climbed back up on the wagon (2 weeks ago) started lifting agian following DJ's OLAD and now I am moving into CW's SFM. I am slowly adding sprints and shorter distance running in a few times each week.
My nutrition sucks; always has. I can go about 2 weeks eating clean and then all hell breaks loose and I binge on junk for a week or so... I have made modest changes so far but I really need to purge my house of the crap! Which is not an easy task when you have 3 kids under the age of 7 and one of them refuses to eat anything that has grown in the ground!
So here is the plan:
All meals for the week will be prepared on Sunday.
red bell peppers
lean ground beef
old fashioned oatmeal
Cod liver oil (the liquid stuff)
I dont think I am going to worry about counting calories and all that just yet. I need this to develop into a habit and not make it a chore. Once I establish a clean eating habit I will focus on how much I need to consume to reach my goals.
For lifting I am pretty much going to follow CW and DJ's stuff.
Anyway, my immediate goal is to get my eating habits under control and to work off the excess fat that I found this morning (afternoon) when I rolled out of bed!
I am going to make this my food and excercise journal.
