Default Getting Fit for Forty Using Cast Iron

I'd like to be in better shape by the time I turn 40 this August. Time is ticking away and I need to improve my overall general health so that I can better keep up with my 3 and 5 year old boys.

Having recently acquired 3 vintage Erie cast iron skillets, I thought it would be an interesting challenge to incorporate cast iron to meet my goals.

The plan
I will follow a lower carb higher protein diet which shouldn't be an issue for the cast iron. Not every meal will be cooked, like salads etc, but I will use cast iron every chance I get. I have an enameled Lodge cast iron dutch oven in addition to the three skillets and I plan to incorporate them all. I don't have a cast iron recipe book but I will use the recipes on this site along with what I find online - tweaking the recipes as needed to ensure they are lower carb. I will post my progress periodically along with photos of the meals I prepared using cast iron over that time period.

The goals
My weight loss goal is to drop 25 pounds and my exercise goals are to lift weights 3x week and to build up my cardio enough to run in 1 organized footrace. Gyms are closed due to covid19 so I will be doing mostly cardio until the gym reopens. I plan to achieve these goals by my birthday in mid-August.

I'm starting today.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
