I had posted in another thread about weight training and I put what I normally would do as a routine for weight training. I realized that I don't
really practice what I'm preaching anymore. I used to be pretty active throughout my life, I have been involved in martial arts, basketball, track,
weight training, swimming and many other kind of active activities such as hiking and yard work. When i was in high school I used to run to school
every morning and run back home after. I used to ride a bike everywhere or walk.
I have realized that in the past year I don't do much of anything anymore and that my bad eating habits have caught up with me. I used to never watch
what I ate because being involved in so many activities I never used to gain any fat on my body. After writing that post, I took a good look at myself
and realized that i'm becoming a fat lazy sith! I don't have a scale, but at the doctors office today I weighed myself and i was shocked to find out
I have gained 35lbs! None of it is muscle either. I measured different parts of my body and I have gained 5 1/2 inches to my waist, and realized that
seemingly extra bulk around by body is muscle going soft. I still look like I'm in pretty decent shape to a stranger, but this sith lord is in bad
I went to go run a mile today and It took me 10 min 27 sec to complete it! It has been a few years since I ran a timed mile but my personal best is 5
min 41 sec, what a difference! I attempted some pushups, I managed only 20 and I struggled through that. There is no excuse but laziness here. I
looked at some of my workout logs and I realized that I haven't actually worked out at all in 14 months! I have decided to get back on track. I'm
currently putting together a fitness plan that I intend to start this week, if not then bright and early on monday morning! I of course will be
updating my progress here. Is anyone else on a similar mission?
