Fitness stuff... if you’re not into it, just keep scrolling and keep the negative comments to yourself, please. The left pic is January 2017. One year into my weight loss/fitness journey. 240 pounds, down from 320. (I like it!) The right pic is February 2018. 260 pounds, after a 5 months of eating every-damn-thing and training pretty damn hard. I’m starting my “cut” now. Hopefully I’ll drop the winter fat and reveal some improvement. As of right now, that☝️sucks. If there’s not a notable improvement, this will be my last “bulking season”. I’m putting this on here for two reasons. First, accountability! Social media has it’s flaws, but putting yourself out there like this is a great way to stay on track. Motivation, encouragement and continuous reminders of where you want to be helps, a lot! Second, this is REALITY! People need to realize how long the fitness journey takes. This is a years worth of work. I’m sure the after pic will show some progress, but look how little progress we’re talking about. Think in terms of years! Not weeks or months. Nothing about changing your physique can happen quickly AND be maintained. When you see the “quick fix” bullshit, recognize it as just that. Try a 90 program! Just know that it is STEP #1, a beginning, a starting point. It is not the solution. Think about where you were and what you were doing a year ago. Have you improved yourself since last Valentines Day? Have you tried? Imagine where you would be right now if you started then and stuck with it! I’m 48 years old! I weighed 320lbs. I had back surgery at 41 and now I can’t run because I’m paralyzed below my left knee. I have a shitty paying job and I have to work a lot to get by. I had a torn rotator cuff and tendonitis in both elbows. Get the excuses out of your head and out of your way! This fitness shit is amazing! Jump in here and get you some of this awesomeness!👊💥👍 Being in shape is f’ing amazing. Jump in here and get you some of this awesome feeling!

Physically inactive people may loose anywhere from 3% to 5% of their muscle mass each decade after age 30. Even with a physically active individual, you’ll still have some muscle loss. Applying consistent strength taining such as weight lifting can be most beneficial in offsetting this process. To build muscle it requires proper nutrition as part of the process. Typically people eat too little or not enough protein to support the building of muscle. Why is muscle important? As muscle loss continues the body becomes more prone to fractures and immobility. Preserve your future years with staying on top of the deterioration of muscle. It will serve you well. If you are still prone to doing cardio without the weight training, please consider the impact on your loss of muscle. Not hungry in the morning? Eat anyway. Eating when you are "hungry" means you've already exceeded the time needed to fuel your body. Eat consistently throughout the day allows you to use the fuel as it needed. If the weight room intimidates you, hire a private trainer away from the gym. Even if you have a beautiful home gym, having accountability is an importatnt step in achieving results for most of us. Even as competitors, we have a coach so we can maintain accountability. As a busy executive or business person, you may find it too easy to find something to keep you "busy" and have no gym time. If you set up appointments with a trainer, you will have structure. Most people do better with structure. #train #fit #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fit_over_40 #fit_40_club #fitnessgirl #fitspo #momswholift #grandparents #ifbb #npc
