Just starting, Day 1.......again

  • I tried the BFL program A year or so before Hurricane Katrina and had great success. After the storm with all the long hours and overtime involved with rebuilding here at work I let myself slip, and now I find myself right back where I started. So this morning I started with my first workout. When I get home from work in the morning I'll tackle my first cardio day (can't wait). Right now I'm 39yrs old 200# at 5'10". I hope to get back to at least 25 yrs old, 6'0" and 180#. I'm not too hopeful on the 25 and 6' though.
  • Welcome aboard! You know what success feels like...you can do it again! If you feel a little rusty, just ask the questions. A ton of wonderful folks here!

    Keep the faith!

  • Well seems we have similar goals... HE HE HE if only I were 25 again LMAO

  • Ogie-You can definitely reach your wt goal if you stick with the BFL plan...I'm 5'9, started the challenge in Dec. weighing 203# :( , after 12 weeks, I had lost 20# and now during Active Rest I've lost another 3# so I'm down to 180 which is what I weighed before I had my 3rd child. My 2nd challenge goal is to lose at least 15 lbs...

    So one day, one meal, one workout at a time and you will reach your goal!  I like the 25 yrs. and 6' goals by the way! lol!

    Blessings :)

  • I will not be detered, although last night at work was major stressful and tonight is worse. I got about 3 hours of good sleep today, about 5 total. So other than cleaning up my diet day 2 didn't go to well. I napped from 7:45 till 8:30 this morning and had to go pay for a flower arrangement to be delivered to my wife for her birthday today. Around 9:00 I finally got to bed after a quick shower then about 10:30 A couple of delivery guys showed up with a new TV (unannounced), 11:00 back to bed, 1:00 these dogs across the street started barking non-stop for an hour and a half. 2:30 off to pick up my daughter from school. The gym is next door to her school so I thought I could get in my cardio before she got out at 3:15. After about 10 minutes of brisk walking on the treadmill I gave up, my eyes were burning so bad I had to sit in the car resting them till school let out. Back at home I had to get a quick snack and get ready for work. 5:00 off to work and here I sit. Here's to tomorrow! At least I have Friday morning to look forward to, I start 2 weeks of vacation with no plans other than spending time around the house with the family and focusing on BFL........................Boy what A day this was!!!

  • You can do it...all the best!!
