Since last June/July my weight has steady increased and now after the festive season I find I am at least 10kg over my ideal weight. My clothes are tight, work pants getting close to splitting and some clothes I can't wear. While I feel OK health wise I am uncomfortable and feel fat and bloated plus I don't like that guy I see in the mirror. There are way too many men and women around my age who are crippled with health problems and I don't want to become one of them.
In 2013 our style of Karate will have a world Cup here in Australia. I would like to compete and be competitive. I want to get down to my ideal weight and feel fit and healthy, stay active and enjoy my life for many many years to come.
OK so the pluses are
- I have a PLAN !
- The best personal trainer in the business
- Good detox program
- Great nutrition
- The best supplements
And the minuses
- I have a bursitis on my right heal. Can become very painful after exercise. Does stop me from running.
Monday - PT session
Tuesday - Walk or swimming
Wednesday - Karate
Thursday - PT session
Friday - Walk or swim
Saturday - Rest
Sunday - Karate
PT sessions will be core based low impact.
Walking will be early mornings work permitting.
Swimming will be laps starting 500 meters and working up
Karate session are normally 2 hours and high intensity.
The Detox will start Monday morning. Cleansing with organic vegetables and eggs for 3 days. Then 2 weeks of organic meat and fresh vegetables and fruit. Followed by 2 weeks of Organic Fresh Seasonal Produce and organic meat. Basically sticking to the paleo lifestyle.
So I plan to complete a blog every day listing everything I do regarding exercise, nutrition, supplements and mindset. You don't need to have a personal trainer as you can follow along what I do or substitute your own exercise program. The important thing is to do something.
