My start. Please comment.

Okay. I'm making slow changes to being on my road to my ultimate goal: weight loss. Yeah, i'd like to have muscles and be toned, but i'll settle for 60 lbs or more lighter.

To begin:

Wake up at 7:15. do some weights workout (upperbody M/W/F, lower body T/T) for 15 mins (hoping to work up to 30-40 in a week or 3).

Breakfast: (8am) wheat toast (1 slice) with chunky peanut butter. 2 eggs, scrambled.

45 minute walk around town, leisure speed.

Mini meal 1: (11:30 or noonish) handful of cooked shrimp, 2 handfuls of blueberries

mini meal 2: (3pm) wheat bagel with light cream cheese, cup or 2 of raw broccoli.

Dinner: (7pm) Whatever the wife makes. Haven't got much control here, yet. keep my portions small though (and it always includes some meat and frozen veggies)


2 hours on saturday and wednesday nights: Kenpo Karate

[EDIT]Also, monday through friday i drink at least a gallon of water throughout the day, in addition to 32oz of green tea in the mornings after arriving at work.[/EDIT]


Soon i'm actually going to move weight lifting to evenings after i get home, and put 35 or so minutes of good bike riding in each and every weekday morning.

Problems i know i've got: all i've got for weights is a 30lb set of small hand weights, and a curl bar. I've got a bench (no benchpress, seat can incline, has preacher bench) that i use, but it's hard to get a good workout with only 30lb of weights for your hands. Problem is, i'm basically broke, and can't afford new weights. If anyone can point me in the direction of a cheap set of weights, it'd be much appreciated.

My real goal is weight loss. I realize that building muscle is great for that, but i have a real fear that due to my 8 hours of sitting at a computer, the upped protein and food and so forth will increase my fat, not my muscles. So i'm kinda taking it slow before i go full bore in the wrong direction and make things worse.

Comments needed, criticism welcome.

As for not having the extra money for more weights, may I suggest that you do push ups and crunches? Do what you can with the weights that you have for now.

I'm not familiar with Kenpo Karate, but it's gotta be good for you.
As for the walking - how about increasing the speed from leisure to briskly for 45 minutes.

You drink a lot of water - that's a good thing.
Continue drinking lots of water on the weekends too.

Cursor and others here are excellent to talk to about nutrition. I'm learning to eat cleaner myself and listening to them has helped a lot.

Currently, I do about 120 pushups on wednesday nights as part of kenpo (at this point, only 40 or 50 or so are on my toes, the rest are knees as i build strength), and 80 or so on saturday. in addition to that, i try to do 50 inclined pushups with my feet 2.5 feet off the floor, every day.

Sit-ups/crunches will soon be added in. my abs need definite work.

Thanks for the info.
