Happy New Year...Let's Get Back in Shape

So I've been lazy as hell this past year, some drinking, toking and so forth and not much gym or exercise.

Thankfully I am still okay, 5'11" or so and about 165-170. A lot of the muscle I had (I was pretty toned and looked good, if I may say so, in 2004) is gone and all that is left are the biceps and some flab.

I know what needs to be done:

1) Get back my upper body tone.
2) Eat healthier
3) Workout with the iPod

Any plans people have been on that have worked? I'd love to look great by April when it gets sunny again and I'll be seeing old friends....maybe lose 10 pounds and get a six-pack back by then.

Any advice would be great.

I'll have to give a Strong agreement to jolt.

But for himself.

I hope to get back into shape.

I started on Christmas Eve and have exercised every other day since. If I'm not careful, it will become a habit.

Back to no carb for a month and low carb after that... the 20lbs I dropped 2 years ago finally caught back up.

well my diet started today and my goal is to lose as much weight as possible...


my diet: cut all my meals in half..... and eat more during the day

today i had a half a cup of cereal with skim milk.
at 10 am, i will have half a banana,
at lunch time i will eat half my meal,
then at 2pm i will eat the other half of the banana,
then i will go to the gym(my company has a gym on the facility) and
then go home and eat my dinner(half of it )

The only thing is you have to drink lots of water during the day.....i have 1 gallon on my desk and if i finish that... i am good for the day

i plan on doing this for a long time. My doctor said i shouldnt go on specific diets because it doesnt work. Just to eat your normal food but cut it so that your body knows to burn the fat.

In other words: half a Big-Mac with half a super-sized fries and a medium coke instead?

I've been working out regularly for over a year, so I don't see that changing. Trying to work more cardio into my workouts this year. Maybe I can sweat some weight off.

I need to get back to the gym. I haven't picked up much weight (maybe 2lbs) but I've lost my tone.

Just not super sized!

I have a basketball league starting in 1 1/2 weeks and I think I'm already starting to get shin splints, great. Any good recover tricks or anything to help?

That isn't so bad. I'm about 5'11" as well, but I'm up to 200. I received a treadmill for christmas and would love to lose 30 lbs this year to get back to where I was a couple years ago. Plus I just don't feel good. I don't think my body likes me right now.

I'm not a fan of specific diets, so I'm up for some advice as well.

Yup, muscle weighs more than fat, so you haven't gained much weight (like me), but have lost muscle mass (like me).

I also reccomend LOTS of water. I drink water all day at work, great way to keep weight down. Also, I would cut meals in 1/2 or by 1/3 and eat more fruit and eat less red meat. I love steak/beef, so that's the hardest part for me. Great way to cut pounds/fat out.

Cutting out the red meat and the soda will forever be my downfall. I did lose 15 lbs from the time I started working out though, so that's something.

Jeepers....I went to the gym yestetrday and I didn't recognize more than 2 people. I find it so funny that EVERY year for the first week maybe even 2, there are so many "go getters".....and then inevitably, they finally get the hell out of my way, cuz they don't know gym etiquette.

I've been on the Abs Diet (Men's Heath magazine) since September and have had great success with it. (down 15 lbs and more toned ever) It's not really a diet per se but a change in lifestyle. I cut out the processed foods and started lifting weights. The transformation has been amazing. Their website has a forum with others in the same boat to lend moral support/compare notes etc...

I was a skeptic at first and thought more cardio was what I needed. Strength training has been far more effective. Good luck!

I don't eat much red meat. I actually prefer chicken and fish. I also drink diet if I drink soda.

For me it's cutting out the fried foods... and sweet tea. I could drink a gallon of sweet tea a day - by myself. If I'm ever in the hospital someone better hook my IV up to McAllister's sweet tea or I'm going to be an even bigger bitch than I already am!

I was going to try to lose weight this year, but I've decided to become a computer programmer instead.
