When I first started this blog (4 weeks ago today!) my intentions were to just throw the page up as fast as possible. I didn't want to put any time in the page that would delay me actually beginning the blog. I know myself, and sometimes I get carried away in the details instead of making real progress. The important thing here was to start with my "plan", not build a pretty blog. The sooner the blog was active the sooner I was on my way.
So, it's still not pretty (I'm no graphic designer)but the new title at least makes sense. By the way, "Plans are for fools!!!" is a quote from a cartoon called "Aqua Teen Hunger Force". When I was originally trying to come up with what to call my fat loss program and I could think of was "I need a plan". Then this quote would pop into my head right afterwards every time.
So, on to the task at hand. Last night I bought a book about men's health called
Men's Body Sculpting. For me, this is the first book that I feel really gives me all the details I need without being overwhelming. You see because, I dumb when it comes to fitnes and nutrition (although I'm learning). That said the book isn't so basic that it tells you a bunch of stuff you already know. It's aimed towards people who already exercise and diet regularly. So check if that sounds like something you'd be interested in, check it out.
In other news, I've decided to ALWAYS do my cardio routine in the AM first thing. Some days I'd get lazy and do it in the afternoon because I wanted to sleep in. Well, it's my understanding that you can burn more fat by doing it before you eat and first thing in the morning. I don't really know if this is definitely true, but it seems to make sense to me.
I'm also changing up my lifting routine a bit too. Right now I've been putting about 40% of my time towards building muscle and 60% towards burning fat. I'm going to change that to about 80/20 in favor of burning fat, but the time I put towards lifting is going to be more efficient. So far I'd only been working my chest and arms. I'm going to do more. I'll go more into that in a later post though.
That's it for now.I hope the F.A.T. Coalition is all doing well!
