Getting Fit In 2011 With My Friend Brent

So one of my friends, Brent Worley has offered up a Fitness Challenge starting January 2nd ...

We're going to follow the eating plan in the The Abs Diet book ... he just got it recently, I've had it for a couple of years now.

And ...

There's also going to be a daily workout .. he does P90X, and/or Insanity .. I don't think I'm quit there yet, so I'll probably just start with the workout from the book.

The biggest thing for me is, Brent's going to start a FB group, or at the very least a thread on his blog, where those who participate can report in on our progress ... this will definitely help ... in that it adds an element of accountability to the goal ... and that's generally the key missing element for many of us, in any goal setting we do.

So ...

If you're thinking about making a "fitness and/or diet" oriented New Year's resolution, you might want to check out Brent's site (Get Fit With Brent) and consider joining us on his challenge.

Keep havin FuN!

  1. Todd,
    Good luck with the fitness plan. I just put a post up on my blog about New Year's resolutions. It is best to break them down into SMART goals.
    I have done the Ads Diet book before and it is effective. I am current following Tim Ferris' Four Hour Body book. It is something different. I am a fan of low carb, high protein in any case.
    In any case, go for it.

  2. Hi Michael ... thanks for popping in will keep the SMART in mind for my goals this year .. and love the Mark Twain quote at the top:


    New Year’s Day… now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. ~Mark Twain

  3. Hey Todd, I don't do resolutions mate, I never have.

    I can see how it may work for some but it's just never appealed to me.

    I reckon that FB idea may help to keep your mate motivated.

    I converted my kids cubby into my own personal gym and it's been sitting there idle for quite some years. My problem is that every time I started to work out something would happen putting a halt to my routine and I really need a routing when working out.

    Anyway, I'm finally out of my business and I've got some free time on my hands and so I've started to work out again. That first day nearly killed me. Reckon I tried too much too soon. I almost didn't do the next one because I didn't want to feel like that again. I pushed my way through though and I didn't lighten the load one bit.

    I'm still working out, although those hot days like today, 41C, I cut the workout times to half or less. I basically just work my arms and chest. Man, I still love that burn feeling and seeing how the muscles look when they're really pumped.

    Happy New Year mate.

  4. Hi Sire,

    At least you actually got started .. congratulations. I remember hearing a while back that there is one day that is universally, and overwhelmingly the most popular day to start a new diet or exercise plan ...


    Tomorrow

  5. Who said anything about a diet? I love my food too much, although I have to admit I've tried, unsuccessfully, to cut my carbs back some.

    Still, I reckon all I have to do is work that little bit harder.

  7. I also love to eat healthy food, the only problem is (and I think it's a disgrace) that healty food is so expensive. Often I'm forced to eat fastfood just because I don't got a choice. Sounds a bit like a excuse, but I think many people can identify with this.

    I hope all of you can reach your goals!
