Schmopey Posted November 10, 2014 Report Share Posted November 10, 2014 I joined Nerd Fitness in February of 2013 after having decided that I needed to get into a shape other than very round. Last year was pretty great from a fitness point of view: by mid October I was down to 206Lbs from the 276 the scale was reading in January. I then decided I wanted to get stronger and began eating more. I managed a combined total of 820Lbs for the Salubrious Spring Strength Skirmish, which isn't too bad for a guy nearing 40 who had only been lifting for about 15 months and had a hernia repaired 3 months before the competition. Unfortunately, this year has not been so great at least not the past 5-6 months. My weight got up to near 260, and I had stopped going to the gym. It's time to get back on track. Let's get started with this deflabulation! The Plan: Get back in the gym: I've been doing SL 5x5, so I'll get back to that. Watch what goes in the pie hole: I'll get back in the habit of tracking consumption on MFP (link in my sig). Get the dog some exercise, too: take the dog for at least 2 runs a week of at least 2 miles each. Become a rock star: I am finally learning how to play a guitar I've owned for 20 years; need to practice at least 30 minutes at least 5 days a week. This challenge is predominately about getting back into good habits, so success will be determined by how consistent I am. I should get back to work.
