If this is as important to you as you say it is you can do it.

It will be a tough two months. But if you really want to be a Philly cop, and I really hope you make it, change your life for two months.

Don't know what you are eating or drinking right now but put it down.

Water or diet drinks only.

And get rid of that dietician who says everyone cheats. You cannot. You have to lose twenty pounds in a couple of months and the idea that it is OK to cheat cannot be in your mind.

You have to be set on the goal. Think of Rocky. Think of anything. But be strong.

This is a choice point, you make the grade or you do not.

You can do it.
Thank you. Your support means alot to me. Thank you very much

no wonder why cops give out so many tickets.

they're crabby from being hungry!

j/k, good luck p-king.

a tip on benching your weight: if you want to move up in weight, start with the extra weights on an incline bench. you're shoulders help out until your pecs catch up. also, do dumbbell flys on a flat bench, to help the pecs too.

If you can't pass the physical qualifications test today - I wouldn't wait until the month before to start getting into shape - if you're really serious about getting this job.

I agree with Michael, get to that gym now!

And yes, The Zone did work and I lost weight and kept it off. Burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight. :)

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

If you prepare and portion foods ahead of time that is a big help. Tuna, boiled eggs and fat-free cheese are easy. Cleaned and cut celery dipped in seasoned FF yoghurt is a good snack. Boiled and mashed cauliflower with FF seasoning and Molly McButter might help you with your Carb cravings.

if you absolutely must have pasta, go with the whole grain kind. They're everywhere now.

-Run 2 miles a day.
-300 push ups a day, 300 sit ups. This can be broken down in groups of 20.

As you can see, this is not easy. However in 3 months I'll be in shape and ready to take on the Police test.................if I'm not dead yet lol.
This sounds a lot like the South Beach diet, too. This blog has lots of South-Beach-friendly recipes: Kalyn's Kitchen HTH.

I started this whole diet thing today. It wasn't hard when it came to food. I worked all day, so my mide wasn't on my belly. When I was home I was either doing push ups or sit ups or spending time with my family. Add that into the time i now spend here it's like "what food?". lol.

All in all I ate around 1500 cals, did 35 sit ups and 100 push ups. I didn't run. I don't think I am going to. What do you guys think? Should I run the 2 miles that I said I would? I was also going to do 300 sit ups and push ups, but when I got to it, it was hard. no, no, REALLY hard to do lol.

I think I did good today over all. I lowered my cal intake, I did 100 push ups, and I didn't eat any bread. Not a bad start I think. As time goes on I'll be able to do more.
