Hey barfers and barrettes! It's that time of year again.

What are your goals?
What is your strategy?
What is your biggest challenge?

I haven't been going to the gym anywhere near enough lately. I've put on 30lb from my low in late 2015, and most of it is fat. Hard to find time with how busy I've been.

I bought a power rack and some weights

Been doing some basics with my 16yo so he can start learning how to do the lifts right, etc.

Day A

3×5+ Barbell Rows
3×5+ Bench Press
3×5+ Squats
Day B

3×5+ Chinups
3×5+ Overhead Press
3×5+ Deadlifts


Also helps to get into a routine and develop habits.

Did I mention on non-gym days I dance for 15 minutes before coffee?
The coolest thing is when the body decides we're doing ths thing and starts the sweat, nothing makes you feel like it's real like that bead of sweat dripping off your nose

So true!!!
Typically though, it's right before Spring when many think about it. I have an excuse, I was recovering from injury

I gotta get into some routine. Too far away and not enough cash for a gym membership. It's been wet and cold and dark when I get up and get home. Too much time spent on the couch drinking beer.

I need to get off my ass and do something. Maybe next week it will start to warm up and dry.

That said, I did cut up a bunch of firewood and stack it yesterday.

At first it feels like torture, now I can't wait to go work out. I wish I could go everyday and I might just start waking up at 4:30 and start my day a little earlier.

Two years ago I finally signed up for Silver Sneakers. Took several months for my workout to become a habit. Now if I don't go I miss the workout.

This is my Monday to Friday schedule.
Walk to 24-hour fitness, just over a mile.
30 minutes on the Elipitical. (note I leave my Fitbit on elliptical when at the gym to trach total time.)
Situps on the bench, min 500 max 700
30 to 50 minutes on the weights with stretches.
Walk home and shower.

I have had a weight problem most of my life. Got a Weight Gurus scale and weigh myself each morning when I get up. Last Fathers Day my kids got me a Fitbit Ionic watch. It does help me stay on track.

ive stopped rock climbing and my upper body is getting skinny-fat. not good. plus, ive been putting a lot of miles on the bicycle. so more of my calories are heading to my legs and glutes. I really should be in the gym gaining strength for racing, but just haven't found the motivation to do it. ugh.

Ive been intermittent fasting for the past 2 months. Going at least 16-20 hours without food 5 days per week.
Its resulted in a 3 pounds loss but a noticeable loss of weight around my waist. Pants that I had outgrown now fit again. I exercise 3-4 days per week, pretty much what I've been doing for years.
The intermittent fasting will remain the new normal for me, not a short term fad. It just feels better.
