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.

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.

to you...

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.
