I'm going to amend this thread a little -- not to drag it out, but to add my 2015 physical fitness goal (each year I try to do something silly and difficult).

So without further ado, I announce that on my birthday of this year I would like to be able to do at least 2 unsupported HSPUs for each decade of my life -- in this case, it would be at least 10 HSPUs. In advance, I recognize that as with the original goal, it doesn't really appear to be very lofty -- but I'm someone who has never been able to do even one, so ten? Pretty lofty for my old ass.

Here's looking to December, then....

If you eat too little your body will cannibalize muscle tissue. You're going to end up being skinny fat. Eat!

I know, but generally speaking, I think my overall average since starting is that I'm breaking even on calories or maybe even a little in the red -- still, I totally get the importance of eating, and except for the occasional day like yesterday, I should be able to keep munching my way to a healthy goal....

Sweet.

I'm 6'2", 190lbs, 34" waist

When I can't fit into my 34's I'll start working out. (I mean can't fit when new, we aren't discussing the ones that say 34" but have been washed numerous times).

I -do- walk 2-3 miles a day up and down hills. That counts, right?

SOTB,

I've followed a similar eating lifestyle with moderate exercise over the last few years. I eat a reasonable portion of protein with unlimited veggies twice a day. Breakfast is oatmeal with butter and coffee with a little sugar and cream. Probably could add more protein to that, but lunch for me is usually within maybe 3 hours of breakfast. Snack on a few bites of full fat yogurt or peanut butter, maybe an apple, some celery or other raw veggie throughout the day. Been able to stay lean for the last three years very easily, enjoying excellent food. I don't eat anything that is pre-prepared or out of a box and only drink water, coffee, and tea.

Keep it up! You are on the right track!

Oh, I used that app for the first year or so. After that it didn't make any difference; the eating pattern was established.

I've codified my normal routine and stolen some ideas around grass fed philosophies.

I only eat between 2-8 pm daily. Normally 2 meals during that time, no "snacks", but no real calorie limit, just types of food. Of course I'm almost always in a place to have the types of food needed.

Breakfast - I never ate it anyway, now I'm just drinking black coffee. Sometimes with ghee mixed in, until after my workout usually between noon and 2.

Unfortunately I'm still a bit on the fucking injured list, but working through that. Right now just mainly hitting Dumbbells or machines, will be moving to a crossfit type core workout (depending on neck and back). As spring hits I'll be riding like a motherfucker.

Goal: 400 mile North Georgia mountain bike ride sometime in late this year.

Your schedule and workout is great for some ideas I have, thanks for posting.

Going to add in some "standing quietly" time? Make sure you start slowly so you don't overdo it.

Earlier today, I spent a quarter second hovering before I came crashing to earth, but I'm not sure how many calories I burned...

Any updates? I'm curious what kind of progress you're making now that you should be into full workout mode. Hopefully no injuries.

Updates.

Umm, yeah.

OK, lost a week roughly due to localized distractions/stress. I'm no longer in that environment, so I'm back to working out again. I did run a couple of times last week, so hopefully that helped a little. I weighed myself and my weight was the same, but I now fit in my clothes. I think -- will know this week -- that my trousers now lie correctly at the seams/pockets.

Yesterday was the first day back into it, so I'll post yesterday's workout and food.

In advance, the localized stress is killing my appetite (and pretty much everything else), but we'll see if it affects the goals. I have a month to pull off one HS pushup....

IMO (an I am NOT a nutritonist /doctor/trainer) The caloric intake is on point, but from what works (for me) is a higher protein intake especially on a cut.(EDIT: This is usually for a more aesthetic look / built) I aim upwards to 1.4-1.5g /lb. It definitely helps me with recovery... How do you monitor your caloric burn??..Just wondering..for steady state I use a Polar FT7.

^^^^I am on a poor connection, but AI believe I state in the thread how I monitor caloric intake and burn.

I'm still at this and will post more, just recently sidetracked with some stuff (real life, LOL).

Currently stronger and faster than last month and fitting in clothes much better, but I think it will be fairly difficult to achieve that HSPU goal this month....
