A healthier me...

There's always talk about being healthier, but we going to do it and track it. Perfection is a process over time not a moment in time.

So now that I've gone thru a couple of ups and downs, I'm back to 230lbs. again. Not a big deal, but when I ran (or gave my best shot running) the California International Marathon, I came to a realization; I am a good runner, but no matter how good... if I don't have the right nutrition my body will Just NOT Do It. Also, when I'm doing major ...
There's always talk about being healthier, but we going to do it and track it. Perfection is a process over time not a moment in time.

So now that I've gone thru a couple of ups and downs, I'm back to 230lbs. again. Not a big deal, but when I ran (or gave my best shot running) the California International Marathon, I came to a realization; I am a good runner, but no matter how good... if I don't have the right nutrition my body will Just NOT Do It. Also, when I'm doing major taxing event like a marathon, and get classified as a Clydesdale (you should know that's the BIG guys) it's gonna be an uphill battle.

HUMILITY; the ability to learn and be taught from others, including my own failures. Not finishing the CIM was a big deal to me.

CONCLUSION: I'm determined to loose my excess weight and train for success. 185 here I come to stay and be healthy!

Join me as I blog my journey.

My Goals:
Back in 2008 I found myself preparing for a marathon, thinking I could do it fine with just running more and more, I was wrong I needed to think and be different to run a marathon. I was 226#'s when I set the goal, 207#'s when I attempted it and even averaged 7-8 miles per day with a peak of 14 miles in 1.75hrs. How did I do? I cramped up at mile 14.5 unable to complete the race.

What I learned was that nutrition and health can really change you abilities. First, my morning raisins were contributing 90% of my daily potassium intake vital to keep my muscles firing normal. Second my mind set was that of I can do it in 4 hrs, but I really didn't listen to my body's nutritional signs and react appropriately. I was low on potassium, drank too much caffeine and didn't replenish my body as I ran to fend off the cramping.

My New GOAL is an average weight of 185 and between 12% and 17%. body fat. Previously I was at a ~36% and now I'm in the 20's, so I

My Program:
As of May 1st 2010 I'm back; tracking nutrition, fitness and bloging my experience.! I'm on the HCG protocol for apx. ~40 days and will be tapering off at the 40# mark transitioning back to my full workouts and training for the 2010 California International Marathon come the last week of June.
