If I were to name this new phase I am venturing into, I would not name it Fitz 2.0. Why? Because Fitz 2.0 happened in 2012 or something. Then came Fitz 3.0 in 2013 and there was one in ’15 and in ’16. I had a short-lived reboot in 2017 but that wasted away in Margaritaville. So, I will not name this reinvention because it would probably be Fitz 7.876 or something mathematically confusing. Check out my old BLOG which chronicled my fitness ADD. For a while, I was really doing well…but I let it fail because I was unable to control my brain. I am not doing a crash diet or a starving plan.
What I Plan on Doing
I am going to eat mostly clean. I am going to make my meals on Sundays and Wednesdays (which may change depending on how this works). I am going to follow a 40/40/20 macronutrient ratio and try to hit 2200 calories per day. I will do a 24 hour fast once to twice per week and I will have one cheat meal per week, which will be my family’s typical “pizza and wings” Friday night. I will only consume water, tea and coffee, fat free milk and mineral water. I will not drink Diet Sodas or any N.A. Beer. (I quit drinking real alcohol). If I have a sweet tooth, it will be a nice healthy snack. *(See pudding recipe below)
I am going to lift 3 times per week and run for 30 minutes after I lift. Each session will be journaled and posted for everyone to follow. if I miss, I will not lie about it – and I hope I will be held accountable. I am prepared for the possibility that nobody will care enough and that it totally fine. In years past, that would affect me. Now, I do this for me and not for recognition.
I will track it all with CronoMeter:
Today’s Snack Recipe: Fitz’s Muscle ‘Pudding’
You can use a vanilla or flavored yogurt if you want, but I try to avoid that added sugar. This is not a new invention, but I like it. You can also add quick oats or muesli to up the carbs if you want.
- Plain Greek Yogurt (1C)
- Chocolate Whey (1 scoop)
- Frozen (or Fresh) blueberries (1C)

Want to do it With Me?
I invite YOU to restart yourself and we can make it public! WHAAAA? Yes, I mean public. As in – post it all (more than usual) for the world to see. What you’re eating, how much you’re exercising, etc. No secrets! (Well, you can keep the real personal stuff secret…there Tiger!)
Hey, I am not a professional trainer or nutrition specialist – but I know what works for me and I’d love some partners! Let me know if you want to try it with me.
