There’s a guy named Bill Phillips who wrote a book called Body for Life. Apparently, he’s turning into a self-help nut. Also, his past with anabolic steroids and his involvement with nutritional supplements activate my bullshit detector, but that’s not what I’m writing about.
Karena has decided we’ll be starting a 12 week round of a BFL challenge. Which pretty much means I’ve decided we’ll be starting a 12 week round of a BFL challenge. There’s nothing magical about this stuff. Move more. Eat less. He outlines a sensible exercise routine that alternates strength training and aerobic training six days a week and lays out a simple, well balanced menu to control intake calories. Some of the results people have posted in three months are astounding. We don’t expect to astound. But, we do expect to get to more healthy weights and fitness levels.
After only this first week, I can notice a difference in strength and stamina. It’s getting easier to put on clothes in the mornings.
One day a week is a day off from the routine. That is tomorrow. All bets are off for a day. We’ll probably overdo it.
