    Greetings to anyone who is reading this. I’m brand new to Simplefit as of May 24, 2012. I’m posting today for the first time. And so the journey is just beginning.

    Week 1

    I’ve been substituting with a towel for the pull-ups at this point. It’ll be fun to see the day when I can do one on the pull-up bar again.


    Great Start! Welcome to our little group.

    If you keep at it, you’ll see the real pull-ups pretty soon.


    Thanks for the kind words of welcome and encouragement. I do look forward to that day of a real pull-up. My chief aims: avoiding injury and practicing optimal form. So L1 is still best for me in this next week, Week 3.


    I’m 5’4, 175 lbs. (on an almost exclusively vegetarian diet)

    I’ve been hiking 3 to 4 miles 2x per week for the past year. Dog walks in the neighborhood daily. Yoga 2x/wk. and just started pilates 1x/wk. Studied martial arts for 15 years but stopped four years ago.


    Body Fat = <20% (now it's at approx. 30%)

    Run outside on soft surfaces 3x/wk.

    Avoid snacking before bed.

    Cut down on the bread and pasta.

    Increase water consumption.

    Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.


    These are great goals. I’m also a vegetarian. It’s generally much healthier, but you still have to be careful about the cheeses and carbs. My guess is that your martial arts foundation will start showing through pretty soon here.

    I think getting the sleep is one of the hardest things for me.


    On the plus side, I have been getting plenty of sleep. No problem with that goal right now. On the sub-optimal side, I’ve been sick with a bug for over a week. I did just go to Pilates today. I’ll start back on the body weight exercises tomorrow. I can be resilient that way.
