New Year – The BFL Challenge Begins

OK – I know that it is chiche, but I am starting a diet and exercise program. Specifically, I am doing the 12-week Body For Life Challenge. In fact, I’m attempting to organize a competition at work – the Seattle office vs the Colorado office. I took measurements and before photos today. I wont be posting those on this site until there is a beautiful after photo.

Today, I went to the Rust Gym that MAS joined. I got a membership too even though I have a lifetime, no dues membership at Bally Total Fitness. I joined Iron Works because it is convenient (to home), the people are nicer, and it is a real weight-training gym with trainers who know what the heck they are doing (unlike Bally.)

Anyway, since it is the first day of my diet, I should declare my goal and pick a fitness image that inspires me. The goals: let’s say bodyfat percentage in the 20s, 133 lbs, and the ability to squat 135 again.

As for the fitness image that inspires me… this is actually very difficult. Finding a woman who has real boobs, is around 5.4, over 25 years old, and is over 115 pounds is unbelievably difficult. Not in real life, but oh buddy is it hard to find someone like that on the internet, TV, or in film.

The idea of a fitness inspiration is to look at a figure/shape that is somewhat plausible for your body shape — a little out of reach, but not a complete pipe dream. The best I could do is find an inspiring Ms. Fitness contestant named Kim Dawson. She’s a bit shorter, and she’s about 120 due to her amazing (but not hulking) muscles. Of course, I am so fair-skinned that it might make more sense for me to aspire to be like Dita Von Teese!
