I have always been a self starter, just looking at common issues people have and relate them to myself. This time I want to step up and ask for a some guidance to start a plan on June 1st. Right now I am sitting at 209 lbs, down from a consistent 220 over the last few years (I'm about 5'10). I don't have a plan/schedule and have just been trying to eat healthy and hit the gym more often.I know it is working because clothes fit better and I have seen a good amount of muscle gain.
Now getting serious about it...My goal is to lose weight but gain/maintain muscle size definition. I want to do it the right way. I have a wedding I am going to in September and I will be the best man. I gotta look good for photos right? That would give me 13 weeks to lose a healthy 20-25 lbs (2lbs a week) give or take with increased muscle size.
I work 8-5 (Mon-Fri) so I am limited to the time I can workout. I picked a gym that is 10 mins away from my work and usually try and use my 1 hour lunch time and go and workout for 45 mins (eat at my desk after workout). Then after work I try and head to the gym for about an hour or so depending on how much treadmill/stairs work I do.
Note: The gym is not anywhere near my house so I primarily use it M-F. It also has a pool so I would be interested in getting back into swimming (swim team when I was 9-15).
----> What I am asking for is an idea of the best way to plan my workouts/meals around my schedule. I'm sure I will have more questions once we get the ball rolling.
