Great start! Don't be so paranoid, no one is poking fun at each other here, well I poke fun at robert but that's because ive known him since childhood and that's what friends do. In my experience here the forum members have been nothing but supportive and there are plenty of people that have started off from fall lower levels of fitness than you, and have had great success stories here.
Glad to see you are motivated and started a journal.

Keep up the good work, for some people they find recording everything in a journal and posting it online keeps them somewhat accountable. Wishing you all the best anyway, I'll check in from time to time to see how you're going.

Have a great weekend whatever you are up to MF.

hey thanks Fork!

i kicked my own ass the past few days, so i didnt go today- but heres what i did the yesterday or day before, in less detail because i have mommy brain!

did arms and abs,
abs first with the four-hour-body half ball crunches! HURT
to do more abs i did slow leg lifts,
and some bicycle crunches
then hopped on a resistance machine and did ab twists about 20 each side

arms:
15lb behind the head triceps X30
15lb bicep curls X20 each arm
20lb bicep resistance machine X10 each arm
20lb chest on the resistance machine X20-ish
and i think thats it for strength

cardio:
10-15 min on a bike

plan on some yoga tonight for my recovery day, and tomorrow too!
staying on my eating pretty well, thinking of doing a mono detox pretty soon.
i did the master cleanse, well only for 4 days. i really enjoyed that.
i do IF (intermittent fasting) everyday for at least 14 hours, and i really like it.
im just trying to figure out if i can strength train on a mono diet...? hmm

Can you explain more about the mono detox + diet? Haven't heard of that before.
IF can work great if you understand it and know what you're doing. I also like the CBL (Carb Back Loading), have seen good results from implementing it. Not easy though!

hmm what's CBL? sounds cool lol. I'm always up for a challenge and a change.
I have done a fair amount of reading on IF and I think the benefits are awesome. I like to train fasted..I feel a greater amount of energy when I do.

idk yet about the mono thing. its basically where you only eat one type of food at meal time. some people only do it for breakfast, like having 6 bananas for breakfast then resume regular eating. some do just one food for days at a time. some only do one food for breakfast, a diff one for lunch and a diff one for dinner...you get the idea.

its supposed to be easy on your digestive system while still providing enough calories and nutritional content to sustain you for a day, or days at a time.

If you Google 'John Kiefer Carb Back Loading' you'll be able to get the basics on it. On my phone at the moment, I'll try and post up a link to one of his podcasts once I'm back on the laptop.
I prefer the Carb night back loading, basically where you eat less than 30g of carbs a day for 6.5 days, then on the night of the 7th day you carb load an eat whatever you want in any quantities you see fit! Once you adjust to the low carb days you actually get stronger, decrease bodyfat and can lose weight pretty consistently. Worth looking into, cheers MF.

you know that sounds a hell of a lot like the four hour body diet. its called the slow carb diet. but its not a plant based thing. when I ate meat, I did it and lost like 8 lbs in 7 days and like 8 inches around my whole body. what's a typical day look like for you? because I wanted to get back on that diet but I couldn't find foods to fit it. its a little different, you're supposed to eat 30grams of protien within the first 30minutes of waking. and then very little carbs all week except for one "cheat day" where you are told to pretty much eat your ass out of anything you want lol.
