Going The Distance

By Gjosefsberg @gjosefsberg

longest roadI’ve been making some minor changes to my life over the past six weeks and I feel like things are finally falling into place.  So, here’s the way I intend to live the rest of my life, and yes, I am very serious about that.  If you’re making any health changes that you’re not willing to live with for the rest of your life, you may as well forget about them right now.  Temporary changes make for temporary results.


This is a slightly modified version of the 4 hour body diet.  I will include some fruit, mostly limited to pre and post workout but I will be eating very little meat.  I am not going to go back to being a strict vegetarian but I will try to eat as little meat as possible with little to no beef or pork.


No more sodas, no more alcohol.


Five times a week, alternating between weights and cardio.  I will work out in the morning before work.

Cheat Days

Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown I can eat and drink whatever I want.  No, I do not intend to binge but I will enjoy some of the items on my forbidden list at this point.

Will It Last?

Yes, I think so.  I’ve been experimenting with this for weeks now and I believe I can keep it up forever.  However, big life changes (we’re thinking about kids next year…) may cause me to rethink a few things.  That’s fine, I’ll deal with it then.  For now, this is my life.

Weight – 225lbs.
