Thanks everyone for the clarification and welcomes. I'll do L1D3 this afternoon and let you know exactly where I stand. I described simplyfit to my wife and she wants to give it a try too! So, this log will be for both of us. We might eventually have our 7-year-old son participate as well. Make it a family adventure!
So a little background. I'm just over 30 and am moderately active and in moderately decent shape, I guess. I need to stop putsing around with my workouts and start getting more serious about fitness. I'm about 185 lbs and would like to lose my Homer Simpson spare tire and put on muscle in exchange. Maybe take the weight down to 175, but functional fitness takes precidence over arbitrary measurements, of course.
Right now I can do about 5 honest pullups in a row, so I'm sitting good as far as that goes. By biggest weakness is endurance, especially with higher intensity workouts. I tried the Crossfit Elizabeth workout and couldn't make it through the first of 3 sets, even with scaling back the reps and weights. So, I'm thinking my Thursdays will be spent working on anaerobic endurance. I might do something like jumping rope, or power cleans with lower weights.
My wife's circumstances are pretty similar as far as fitness goes, except that she can't do a pullup. That's one thing she's looking forward to with this program.
One thing for her is that she had drastic changes in her metabolism after the pregancy with our son 7 years ago. The biggest change was that meat started making her sick. She went from a meat and potatoes girl to basically a vegetarian as a result, which was difficult, because she doesn't like vegetables. So, getting enough good protein is definitely a big issue for our family.
Anyway, I'll post my L1D3 results soon.
