I forgot this forum existed!
I noticed the multivitamin post pop up in the New Posts list and figured I'd stop in and check it out.

I used to be pretty fit and active, working construction, roofing, landscaping, etc. for years. Sitting at a desk job the last 10 years has caught up to me, though. After noticing the weight sink in, I decided to start eating better lunches and a few of us at work joined a gym. We've been going for about a month, month and a half now and I'm already seeing results. My current half-*** "get fit" plan is:

MWF - 45 minutes at the gym. We do about 10 minutes of cardio, stretch, then some weight training. We have a pretty simple schedule: One day "push", one "pull", one "leg". Eventually we're going to jump up to 5 days a week since 45 minutes isn't that much.

M-F, I drink coffee for breakfast, eat a 200 cal salad for lunch (no dressing), then eat a normal dinner.

Weekends, I do whatever I want. While my diet goes out the window, I do a ton of work around the house and on vehicles, which keeps me active.

It's not great but I've lost 5-10 lbs and have started to see muscle gains. When we started this schedule, I was around 200 lbs (at 6' tall), maybe a bit more. I'm already fitting into Express Medium Slim-Fit shirts for work, so I'm doing something right!

The noticeable changes are addicting, so I imagine I'll be able to keep it up!

At 5'-11" and 216 lbs my spare tire is a little over inflated. The wife and I joined the gym and now need to find the personal inspiration to go! Hopefully I'll find some tidbits of information that'll help push me through the doors. Thanks for sharing!

The time now is 08:53 PM.
