So, somehow 2018 got away with me amid all the momentous changes that took place (excuses, I know), and I missed out on the Health and Fitness thread there (didn’t even notice it until mid-December), so I thought I’d start this back up for this coming year.
Now that the holiday rush has ended and I’ve had a couple of weeks to get settled into my classes for the spring semester, I’m ready to start getting serious about being disciplined with the workouts. Not sure how many weight lifters are here, but I thought I’d start with that.
I’ll be using Cody Lefever’s GZCLP Program to rebuild a base of strength to work from, and I’ll be alternating lifting with cycling (once it gets a little bit warmer), and swimming, though I’m still looking for a good guide for getting back into that, and I’m honestly going to need a coach to help me work on my strokes- I’ve always been terribly inefficient, but I overcame it when I was younger by being crazy strong and stubborn. Now that I’m a bit older, I’m becoming more of a fan of the “work smarter, not harder” approach to some things.
Haven’t had a chance to weigh in yet to set a starting weight, but as before, the goal weight is 185-195 lbs. As for diet, I’ve already started getting back in the habit of being much more strict with my calorie counting, and I seem to be developing an allergy to something in the my usual alcoholic beverages of choice. I’m not too torn up about that, and cutting out those carbs and sugars should help.
So, anybody else still tracking things or working towards fitness goals?
