Hi I don't know how I got to be how I am- all I know is I don't like where I am at . (Actually thats NOT totally true but it sounds better than "I F****D up"). I actually was doing this a couple of years ago on and off and was using a treadmill every night for about an hour and was doing OK until Fox cancelled Glen Beck and the motor burnt out of the treadmill..... Now I either walk or ride the bike and lift weights I am also trying to be more active around the house and even though at times the scale doesn't show a difference, I CAN feel a difference. THAT'S WHAT TRULY COUNTS. I am really beginning to miss karatedo but I don't know if I can ever go back as I HATED the politics and favouritism (YES it exists). I know I could go train elsewhere but it would cost money- I think I put enough blood sweat and tears into the "other" umbrella organisation that I could get away with training for free (its just a question of putting up with the BS).

Member Since: 5/11/2008

Fitness Minutes: 204,821

My Goals:
To get fitter. And not obsess too much about my weight (at least not for now).

I am currently attempting to complete the "One Hundred Push Ups Programme"
(my max is about 30 at a time now which thankfully is more than the # of reps yet- you do 5 or 6 sets of reps 3x a week for this week (week 3) I am not looking forward to weeks 5 & 6 .

My Program:
cycling ,some walking , weights, callisthenics.
I would practise my karate ( I am a yondan) if someone else didn't want all the basement rumpus room when she moved back in. ( used to use the treadmill in there and watch the Glen Beck show for an hour)

Personal Information:
British North America
40 something
White Male.
YEAH YEAH I know REAL GUYS don't love cats (too bad I grew up with a cat who lived to be 17)

Other Information:
I want to lose weight and get fit so I can sign up in the reserves and get my commission.
I am an (underemployed) engineering technologist
finished reading "we were soldiers and young" and a "Better War" (an almost biography of Gen Crieghton Abrams).
I still obsess about my psychologically scarring Calculus courses at college.
(years later
I can remember formulas I couldn't recall when I needed THEM).

    #1. Being Active one... two... three times.. won't help you lose weight... It takes 12 weeks to see the Results...

    #2. 100 Calories Pack Snacks... or even Rice Krispy Treats... Single Packaged...
    #3. Don't Weigh Often... Go by the way your clothes fit... or Tape Measure...

    #3. Diet Soda has artificial Sweeteners... that Harms the Body...

    #4. Craving Foods... Remember that it will always be there... It's alright if you don't have whatever your craving... You won't miss it... It will always be at the store... and if it's not at the store next time... or it's not at the restaurant your craving.. it won't be a Total Lost... Everything will be Fine...
    emoticon = emoticon

    #5. Prepacking Meals Ahead of Time... Cook Chicken Breasts ahead of time... for easy access later on during the week... or sort out healthy snacks to remind you of your smaller portions....
