With the New Year comes everybody's new years resolution of losing weight, getting in shape, and having an active, healthy lifestyle. I have the same goals. I want my washboard abs, I want to be strong, and I want to be able to hang with the big boys.
With that said, I'm using this, again, as a check on my fitness and to keep me honest. Every Sunday will be my progress post. Throughout the week I will continue posting my workouts and now, what I'm eating.
I want to gain 10 pounds or so of muscle while losing fat. For this, I will be eating more protein, less unnecessary carbs and more good fats, and less bad fats. I am cutting down my fast food and coke's while increasing my home cooking, to include my lunches and dinners. My diet will be loosely based on the Paleo diet and the Zone diet. My zone will be 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% fats, with the possibility of a higher percentage of protein while maintaining a base carbohydrate diet to sustain my activity while losing fat.
So, since this is the first post of the year, it will be my starting post and everything to base my progress on.
For my weight calculation, I'm using the Weight Watchers scale.
Body Fat Percentage: 24.0%
Water Percentage: 55.6%
