This will be my active log for the OBF contest. I will prob be posting serveral times per week listing m workouts and nutrition breakdowns. Will I do every single day, prob not.
Lil about me (lil long winded):
37 YO male, family. I work full time, seated position so lil activity. Approx 3-5 years ago I really started letting myself go to the point I got up to 280 lbs. I have herniated disks and obviously this was not good. Physically and emotionally I was slipping and I couldnt do anything I enjoyed in life, including spending time with my son. He is happy to be part of this and will be the one taking the pics!
I have never done a contest before and I am both nervous and excited!
Fast forward to end of sept 09. I finally mustered up enough willpower and drive to finally need, want, to do something about it. After coming close to losing my job battling with depression and my body sorta giving up on me it was time for change.
Started slowly just watching what I ate, cutting out bad snacks at first, then junk food, starting having serveral smaller meals etc. Started walking and then hooked up with a trainer and he really got me on a good track.
Goals: First is I want to be healthy which for me entails increasing flexibility, leaning out, strengthening my core and building muscle. Long term of course. Short term I would just like to be in a good place physically and mentally come this summer at which time I can spend time with my family. I also always wanted to jog and be able to mountain bike again. This really is a lifestyle change and I see that now.
Used to workout years ago so I know what needs to be done but from these boards I am finding out how much info is out there not only regarding the actual workouts but also nutrition.
My plan is 3-4 days per week of weightlifting, 3-5 days of cardio.
I will be listing my stats and "official" starting weight soon as well as pics for this contest asap!
