Living the journey back to health.
Interests: I enjoy many different things in life, namely being a husband and father. Right now my attention has turned to returning to fitness...and living healthy for life.

Its one thing to have sore muscles and aches and pains from exercise... injury is another thing. Last week playing basketball my calf started to tighten up. I cut hard and then felt a pop right in the center of the muscle. A lot of pain followed, and much limping... Continue reading

I was just looking at a calendar and I'm just 3 weeks into living a healthier lifestyle. Seems much longer. Along the way I've faced quite a few frustrations with a lack of results in lost pounds...but I've come to realize that my results weren't as bad as I thought.... Continue reading

It is a chore to even write this. I've now made it through 2 days of fruits and veggies only, and very low calaries. I don't feel hungry, but my head is majorly cloudy and I zone out frequently. I decided a few days ago to try to jumpstart my... Continue reading

What am I reaching for? In changing habits of eating, fitness and overall health what is the end game? In one sense this is definitive: I am striving towards a weight of 190 lbs. This will be the least amount that I've weighed since before my junior year of highschool.... Continue reading

Today I tackled day 3 of the "Couch to 5K" program that I started last week. The program is 3 days of running per week. This first week's "running" broke down like this: 5 minute brisk walk for warm-up, the 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking alternating... Continue reading

Now that I'm past the first awkward post, where do I start? A week and a half ago I started at my highest weight ever..... 278. This was a wake-up call for me. Only 22 pounds shy of 300, the shear number alone scared me. I determined to try and... Continue reading

It is difficult for me to write this first post, as I'm still a little shaky on exactly why its important for me to record my activities pertaining to losing weight. I would say its for public accountability, but that puts the work onto whoever reads this. I would say... Continue reading
