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).
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 .
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)
Chris Alberta British North America (Canada) 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)
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).
Sorry I got Charlie and Happy mixed up. I hope the "Cat House" is coming along well. LOL. We are working on remodeling the back porch. It looks like it will be the typical gut job. Hubby always guts everything.
Saw your comment about the article on soups. There are 2 resources that I use to ship groceries to my son in AZ. Amazon has a thing called Prime Pantry. You can fill up a big box of stuff for flat rate shipping of $5.99. Sometimes that's less the price of gas to run around looking for things you need to stay fit and healthy. Although not as much exercise. lol. They have an excellent selection of Organic, low sodium, nutritious soups at prices that are sometimes less than in the grocery store, if you have a limited selection in your are. Also, WalMart.com has their section on groceries that you can ship to your door. They carry nutritious and low sodium soups, too. Netrition.com is another online resource for hard to find low sodium products. Flat rate shipping of $4.99. Thought maybe one of these could help.
