My Get Lean Program: After My 44th Birthday, Continuing The Mission
I completed my 8 week get lean program about 2 months ago so I could heal up my joints and work on getting as lean as I could realistically, without extremes or competition level prep.
Since then, I've run two 5k's (first time running at all other than sprints in 7 years) and had my 44th birthday (where I indulged in cheesecake cupcakes and PSL's).
Now I have started lifting gradually heavier again as my joints are feeling much better. I'm still loosely following the intermittent fasting protocols. So the mission now is to get strong again, add muscle and stay as lean as I can.
Are you tracking your progress, pics and numbers? If not, I recommend that you start soon. I post my pics and info for my benefit and accountability as well as to show you that my program works and I practice what I preach, for the most part, as best I can. .
I'm not trying to impress anyone. I'm 44 now and I track my data to show myself as well as anyone interested that age is a limitation of the mind and not of a willing body and spirit. There is so much more to do. I will keep you posted.
