Back on the wagon

So after several years of terrible eating and a complete lack of exercise, I've managed to get myself into the worst shape of my life.  Last weekend, I'd had enough.  Candy, that is. :)  Anyway, I went out and bought some comfortable pants because I'm tired of squeezing into the 40" waist pants that I'd been wearing.  Just admit you're a size 42, and move on.  Hopefully, I want be wearing them long.  Anyway, I started my diet Monday morning, weighed in at 289 pounds!  If you look at my blog from back in 2004, I was down to around 230-235 pounds, so I'm up 50 pounds in 5 years, probably 30 of that in the last 2 years.

I started off low-carb for a "shock to the system", and I dumped about 8 pounds of water weight in 3 days.  I like doing the low-carb thing, because I feel like it helps wean me off the horrible foods that I tend to eat.

Thursday afternoon, I joined a gym in Apex that's convenient - Lifestyle Family Fitness.  It's a nice place, great equipment, and no contracts.  I did 40 minutes on the treadmill Thursday night... didn't work out Friday because Emily and I went to the hockey game, Saturday I did 20 minutes of cardio and a leg workout on the weight machines, and did 30 minutes of cardio this evening.  I'm not low-carbing anymore - not really, at least.  on days that I'm not doing weights, I'm avoiding carbs, but on days I'm going to do weights, I'm just going to try to eat "good carbs" like fruits and whole grains.

Tomorrow afternoon is my first of three free one hour personal training sessions.  I'll let you all know how it goes.

Math test to predict your favorite movie!

This math test can predict your all time most watched film, mine was 'Saving Private Ryan'. Try it without looking at the answers. It works!

  • Pick a number from 1 - 9.
  • Multiply by 3.
  • Add 3, then multiply by 3 again.
  • Add the two numbers together to get your final answer (ie, if you end up with "32" your final answer is "5")
  • See what your favorite movie is from the list below!

Good Luck!
