New recruit reporting for duty (TX)

Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow Rebels!  I've been following the NF blogs for a while, but this is my first post.  I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. 


I have one "simple" goal: I turn 50 in March and I'm determined to be in the best shape of my life by then.  My primary focus is weightlifting because it's what I enjoy and it gets me to the gym at least 4x per week.  Diet is definitely my weak spot.  I'd love to get advice in both areas because I'm still learning.  



May the Force be with us all!

Chut chut, gooddé da lodia!


It's funny how when we get older we start realizing our physique and ask ourselves why we took our health for granted all these years. I've been using the app myfitnesspal to keep track of my caloric intake since it's so hard for me to gain weight. At first using it I found my intake was subpar. I would suggest taking a look into it as it keeps tracks of those carbs and sugars, it will let you know when you are going over and make you pay more attention to what's in the food you are eating.

I just hit that milestone myself, Revan, and had the same goal. Alas, I wasn't in the best shape of my life when the big day hit, but I've still got 11 months to make it happen THIS YEAR. 


Diet is my weak spot too. I agree with SirShaggs advice about MyFitnessPal. It's a relatively easy way to track and if you like, you can connect with other people on there too and it helps keep you accountable. Kind of a Facebook for Fitness.


I'll be following along with your progress. You've got this!
