hi fried... 

I have 6 months to get into better shape. I've worked out off and on forever. Never with a solid plan I can stick to. I know some stuff about working out. More then the average beginner. I've tried a few programs but my eating is the worst thing ever. Always working 3pm-11pm isn't helping either since I eat when i get home and not the right foods.
If your interested i'll even send you a few bucks via paypal if we can work on this together. If your interested let me know.

thanks

mike

When you say "get into better shape", do you mean lose some (fat) weight? Or are you looking to hulk up?

You can lose 20% of your body weight, in fat, by diet alone, no need for exercise. Drink only water, and eat primarily fat and protein, NO carbs. Sounds too good to be true, but it is. And you will build muscle with much less effort eating like this. Can get by with just walking, push ups and sit ups, and an occasional sprint

The above advice is a good. Also it would help to know what you eat and how often you eat.  Do you feel satiated for long periods after a meal ? How much weight do you need to lose?  These are things that should be looked at before you even consider exercise.  If you keep a journal for a week of  everything you eat then it will be easier to figure out how where the problem(s) lie.

With that work schedule...... you should be jacked. 

Can workout in the morning and have time to make food.  That's a nice schedule.

1)  Height, weight, age, estimated body fat% ?

2)  How far can you run?

3)  How many pushups can you do?

4)  How many pullups can you do?

5)  How much can you bench, squat, etc?

6)  Do you have any cooking skills?  Or do you eat out every day?

Can make a noticeable difference in 3 months without too much pain.

I'm a fan of the P90x type routines........ some weight training but mostly P90x stuff.

I got a little flabby few years ago and shed all that off in a few months.... and I drink like a fish.  For the past year, just been in basic "maintain" mode..... Havn't touched a bench press in a year and maybe only a couple times the year before.  Lot of bodyweight pushups/pullups etc and probably stronger now than before.

Did hit weight training for a solid month tho 2-3 months ago.  I can see doing that once or twice a year but the bodyweight exercises are harder because are compound exercises and you can adjust the intervals easier.

Post what you eat and exercise log and I"ll chime in.

Seems like most people are good at either the eating part or the exercise part but really want to do both.

look good for my wedding photos (wedding is May 26, 2012

8)  What is your strength weakness?

strengths.. when im tuned in I go 1000% I think im knowledgeable  about alot of supplements. Ive tried the SFT-7 training but never have the energy to get thru a whole workout. When im goin good I use potein powder, a fat burner usually F-10 by advanced genetics or ripped Fuel. I sometimes take a multi vitamin. creatine powder, and some Omega 3-6-9 oil in my protein shakes when i remember to use it.

weaknesses

injuries... i have had 2 knee scopes... broken ankle once. rotator cuff injury in which i never got fixed from wrestling around with a buddy when drinkin 10 years ago. and i have nobody to keep me motivated noone kickin my behind. I live with my fiancee and at work im the only guy in the office... Only one...  I think i have a pic of me in front of a mirror about a month ago... I'll send it to you if i can find it so you see what your workin with lol.

Looks like need to drop some major weight.  I would focus on.....

1)  Metabolism........ basically spike your heart rate as often as you can.  Maybe 3 times a day on a bicycle or something cuz of the knee.  10 minutes is fine as long as you are huffing and puffing.  Hell, 4 minutes is fine.  Just get to a point where you are huffing and puffing TWICE A DAY MINIMUM..... But I'd go for 3-4.  Jumping jacks, floorwork, million things I'll list later but get in the habit of spiking the heartrate.

2)  Eating habits....... Dude...... what's gonna happen when you are 40?...... 300 pounds?...... Does your fiance cook?....... You gotta eat breakfast even if you are not hungry.  It will help you lose weight cuz spikes the metabolism.  Small meals........ or at least apples or something.  Will elaborate later.

3)  Interval & High Intensity exercise routines....... maybe 30-45 minutes 2-4 times a week at full throttle.  Something easier in between like riding a bicycle or something on days off.

If was me...... I'd go get a trainer at the gym for at least a couple months.  Not every day but once or twice a week to run you through some High Intensity P90x type stuff.

If not........... I'd focus on metabolism and food and almost skip the gym.  Would rather see you do three 10-15 minute cardio spikes throughout the day versus spending an hour in the gym.

I like going to the gym but most of the garbage I do there I could do at home and I think you need to spike that heartrate more than once a day.

An easy and quick way to spike the heartrate is jumping jacks.

Jumping Jacks are

Takes one minute.  First thing you do when get outta bed.  No phones/emails/coffee...... Just knock out a minute of them.

Curious on how many you can do until you huff and puff.

Squat Thrusts.......... are also good.  Doesn't take too many of those to get garbage going.

I'd get a morning floor routine down.  Could be Jumping Jacks, Squat Thrusts, Pushups, those are all bank exercises.

Another good warmup is WINDMILLS....... Basically touch your right hand to your left foot, left hand to right foot, etc.  Flex the gut when doing it.  I love those.
