Action Plan

I was dealing with excruciating pain from a herniated disc in my lower back. I’ve never known such pain and movement restriction. Recovery took over 8 months. I was left with little strength.  I let it get the best of my motivation. It’s healed; its time.


  1. Lose 4% of my bodyweight by January 28th (start day Dec. 29) (reward: Hubby trimming his beard! WOOT!)
  2. Jog 3 miles without walking (don’t care about time)
  3. Deadlift 210 lbs, Bench 135 lbs, Squat 185 lbs (Happy Valentines to me)


  1. Lose 40 lbs by July 2nd (26 weeks)
  2. Be back at 155 by my birthday (November 25, 2013)
  3. Reach my previous Deadlift PR of 260 lbs, Bench 145 lbs, and squat 210 lbs (max goal date by my birthday)


Lose 4% of my bodyweight

  1. Stick with carb cycle plan @ 1800-2000 calories (reassess if it stops working)
  • Monday 30-50g
  • Tuesday 100g
  • Wednesday 100g
  • Thursday 75g
  • Friday 150-200g (2500-2800 calories??)
  • Saturday 75g
  • Sunday 100
  • Light cardio daily (think stroll)
  • Strength train 2x a week to start working back up to 4x a week

Jog 3 miles non-stop

Implement my run/walk program at least 3x a week
