Starting back after one year off

I would like to get back into fitness/healthy eating after a one year break. I have gained about 12lbs (130 to 142pls), and I'm definitely out of shape. I trained for 8 years, only taking 2 x 3 week breaks after going birth. Obviously, I'm sure it was burn-out. I'm wondering if anyone can guide me with ideas to get back into it, without burning out again. There are no boxes near me, but I do own most of the equipment. We are rural and have a full supply of game meat for the winter.

Re: Starting back after one year off

Yes, its self-promotion but you asked and I think it may fit the bill.

Check out

There are thousands of ways to get back into it, get strong again, get more fit, etc. A lot of the ones out there (which are just as good if not better) that I have been inspired by usually provide a bit "higher level" programming. In my case (the above site), I have low level stuff as well. Maybe it may fit better in helping you to transition at an easier pace.

Just some thoughts. Otherwise if nothing else, simply google to your hearts content then, via my website (without touching my programming) use the contact form and send me an email simply asking "hey, what do you think about program X".

I'll give you my honest opinion on it and if its good, I'll sell you on it as if it were my own, regardless of who or where it comes from. I'm pretty confident in my stuff but also respect good stuff and put a lot (A LOT) of time, energy and effort into weeding through the BS out there and knowing what works and what doesn't.
