GO Butts and Gutts!!!!!!!!
Haven't Officially Started, but I'm preparing...I have just a few questions, though?
I'm going to be honest, this week is my "mentally getting it together week" for BFL. I am scheduled to go on travel July 19-23, and I don't want to even think I can start the challenge my first week away (can we say per diem). BUT, I did start my routine (exercise workout and meal plan...

Frustrated already! Starting on Monday, need help with cardio, PLEASE!
Let me start by saying that I have been doing cardio workouts, and every other workout known to man for the past 3 months. So, the BFL book suggests that high intensity cardio training is working at 75% of max heart rate. For me that's 132 bpm. For me that's not hard enough. I don't feel...

I'm looking for someone to help keep me motivated! I'm 30 years old, married with 3 kids and currently serving in Iraq. I've started this program once before, but didn't end up finishing due to a pregnancy. Now, I'm out here with no distractions (day-to-day stuff) and I'm really...
