Operation Turning Forty Log
So this is day one and it was suggested to me that I write everything down. I thought what a better place than MMAF, therefore I could possible get some feedback and suggestions as well.

Today my expecting intake should be around 1200 calories which I will do for the next week. Eggs whites and wheat toast, chicken and avocado, turkey breast salad. In between I am drinking protein shakes and snacking on assorted nuts.

For the first two weeks I am doing strickly cardio, 2X a day. YThis morning was a 20 minute work out of Crunches, body squats, push ups, plank hold, jumping jacks, a run around the block, modified side plank, Chair side squat and assited Lunges. Tonight should mix it up a bit as I am using a random exercise program.

Hopefully I'll keep this up.( The journaling part)

Writing my workouts down has definitely helped me out, I keep a log on a weightlifting forum as well for accountability sake. Good luck man, I hope I can maintain some shape when I am 40, keep kicking ass

July 2-5,
It was extremely hard to maintain the calorie intake over the Holiday weekend at to it the UFC 116 festivities which always includes the "real" healthy choices of pizza, wings, etc. I averaged a total of 1900 per day, so I have taken to a cleanse for the week.

Good luck Ruckus and don't let a few extra calories get you down.That's more energy for your cardio.:thumbsup:

I was in godawful shape at 38 when I started my project 40 and can honestly say I was in the best shape of my life on my 40th bday. that was long ago . time to start project 50.

More of the same, 30 inutes of cardio and body weight exercises. Crunches, body squats, push ups, plank hold, jumping jacks, a run around the block, modified side plank, Chair side squat and assited Lunges.
Calorie count around 1900, a healthy diet of chicken, nuts, eggs and rice.

Looking for a good protein drink.

IDK how tall you are, but you could probably eat more calories than that.

There is a school of thought that maintains that below 1400 calories or so, the body perceives a state of starvation and metabolism slows.

So Operation Turning Forty = EPIC FAIL!!!

Now its just up off of my ass and do this ish!!!! I was given a free pass at a new mma gym right up the street from me so that should help give me a little motivation.

Thank you for the advice swp, I am just about 6'4" and would like to get back down to walk arund weight of 220. That's 40 lbs, starting now!

Without much time to myself (work FT+, school, wife, baby daughter) I'm gonna committ to 20 minute cardio workouts everyday for the next two weeks.

Can not seem to get into a consistent groove. My eating habits seem to be under control with a good diet with out many carbs at all. The trouble is I only work out an averaghe of once a week. I need some motivation.

30 minute cardio non stop, using an app on my iphone. All body weight exercises, very intense and feeling good. Now to the gym for some cybex and than sauna.
