How Did You Get Started?

I set up a home gym when we moved into a new house, but it took a year for me to start using it. I love working out at home now - no distractions.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I'll do my Stairmaster for 40 minutes of cardio then do 40 minutes of weight training one day, and then I'll do Cardio dance with weights for 60 minutes. Another day for a total body workout. I use my Gold's Gym for a total body workout every other day. I also use 10 or 15 lbs dumbbells to mix things up. I usually do 15 reps/3 sets of moderate weight, since I build muscle fast.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Diet is the hard part. I like a lot of food, so low carb high protein works for me to lose fat, build muscle and keep me satisfied. Typical day is oatmeal with walnuts and yogurt for breakfast, salad with chicken for lunch, beef jerky for a snack, and a protein, green vegetables, and salad for dinner. For desert (which I have to have) I eat a sugar-free chocolate pudding.
