BTP Episode 19: Setting Your Baseline

Sometimes the most important thing we can do to stay in shape is simply know where we are starting from!  

In this episode, I discuss how to go about getting an accurate assessment of where you are.  I go thru 5 simple steps I use with my clients that you can apply to your own methods of training as well.  Small rant on instragram as well :D

Run time: 22:45

As promised in the show above, here is a general outline of some cardiovascular programs I would recommend.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.

 

And what better way to follow that loveliness up than with good ole fashioned good for you eating!  This is what I do to make sure I am always at a reasonable baseline to move forward in the week.

Once you have a plan of exercise attack, and what I would do if I were you with food, then it's time to record it all down.  Here is a poor man's version of the fudge budget.  And here's how you use it:

Take every meal you eat and write it down.  At the end of the day, if you were dead on, then put a +1 in the IN column for every meal you got right.  Put a +1 in the OUT column for everything you didn't do so well with.  Follow that for the week.

When Sunday ends, subtract the OUT from the IN column.  Then divide that by your total meals.  Then, to see how well you did, just apply elementary school grades to them:

100 - 93 = A

92 - 85 = B

84 - 75 = C

74 - 65 = D

64 - 0 = F
