Ever since I finished up high school sports (over 9 years ago now), I've been on a steady decline healthwise, with a few months here and there of thinking about getting fit. Well, last Christmas, I weighed in at a fat 250. Through pretty much dieting only, I got down to 220. In May, I started a pretty rigorous lifting program, and have built myself up to the low 230s, but I'm pretty sure the weight I've gained back has been muscle.
I've still got some belly to get rid of, and my gym membership runs out at the end of August. With coaching this fall, I won't really have time to get to the gym. So, for the next couple of months, I'm going to try to push myself with some other challenges. Here they are:
I did my initial test this morning, and did 33. I thought I would be a little better than that, but it's something.
and the other one is becoming a 30 minute runner, and after that a one hour runner. This one will be a lot tougher than the one above.
I'll try to do my best to keep up to date on my progress.
Hopefully in November, I'll be able to get back into a gym, and hit the weights hard again.
Anybody else have any fitness challenges that you have tried?
