It’s time to stop procrastinating.

I’ve always been slim, but I’ve never been fit. It’s time to change that. Today is prep day. I’m going to hit the ground running on Tuesday.

Food: I’m going to eat protein in the morning. 2 eggs, just the whites, glass of orange juice, and a multivitamin. Each lunch break I get a healthy bar, like fiber1 or something like that. Under 100 calories. For lunch I make a protein shake. Drink lots of water otherwise. Dinner should be high in protein, low in fat.  I’m only drinking water and the shake from now on. Black tea at work is permitted for the caffeine but I have a feeling once I get this going I won’t need it. Absolutely no snacking or sweets. I’ll miss Reese’s cups.

Exercise: I will commit to 100 push ups a day spaced any way, although at first it will be 25 when my alarm clock goes off. 25 after my shower. 25 when I get home, and 25 before bed. At lunch I will climb from 29 to 37 up and down as fast as I can without stopping for a half hour. Every Monday, Wednesday  and Friday I will do ab ripper x from Tony Horton’s great p90x series in the evening. Every Saturday I will do some extended cardio, ideally an outdoor bike ride.

That’s what I’m going to start with and hold myself to. Let me know if I’m neglecting any muscle groups. Maybe fit some arms in when I need to. I’m not looking to go crazy, just get fit. When I’m satisfied with this plan, I’m going to consider switching to p90x proper, so that muscle confusion ensures sustainable results.

Oh yeah, and I almost forgot. At least 6 hours of actual sleep. No more 2am.

    It sounds like a good workout plan. Just don’t forget about all the nutrients you need, make sure you’re getting your fruits and vegetables, and remember you are suppose to eat a certain amount of carbs and calories to sustain your workout. Just food for thought.. and a bad pun.

      All great points. A multivitamin in the morning along with Juice at breakfast and dinner should be a start. The bars during the day provide carbs, and dinner will cover veggies / anything else. I need to work on my dinner plans.

      I use a Fitbit to track my stuff. Their website includes diet planning (measuring calories in/out, food tracking) as well so I’ll be set. I really like the Fitbit’s sleep tracking, that’s how I originally got it.

    I’ve always been the same way. Skinny but not fit. Your plan seems achievable. Let’s keep each other accountable!

      I’m holding myself accountable publicly through here and Twitter. Definitely @reply me if you want to push too.
