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 ...
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).

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:
Chris

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).

Thanks for your comment on the U.S. of A.

My Nana was born in England and my Memere and Pepere were born in Canada as was my father.

It's true about the tea. But…didn't English explorers find tea in the East and bring it home to England? As [they] say…and the rest is history.

Oh!, My Nana was from Blackburn and my grandfather's family was from Ireland. They are on my mother's side.

The picture of the heather is around the Hole of Horkum, a lovely site with lots of sheep.

Did you know that Glen Beck has his own radio program in Texas? I enjoyed him when he was on Fox but occasionally he appears on Bill O'Reiily's time.
Glen also has macular degeneration of the eye and needs to wear glasses.
Have you tried ON DEMAND? They have a sports & fitness channel and offer anything from pilates to walking and everything in between…if it's in Canada! Or do you have any fitness CD's?
I walk in front of the TV a few times a week. It's not like being outdoors but I leave my front door open and breathe in the fresh air while walking.
Thank you for sharing your story of tour beautiful cats.
I've talked too much and now I will say…"Have a good day."
