Here we go! My journey to getting back into shape.

Treadmill

This morning we are taking delivery of a treadmill. Boy, do I need to get my body moving (again). This is not a “New Year’s Resolution” kind of promise. It is my intention to get and stay – healthy. Because, honestly, I’d like to stick around for a while longer. I’ve still got a lot…

Cellulitis – Again!

Two years ago (2013) I contracted this nasty infection called cellulitis. I remember sitting at my desk trying to convince myself that I had the energy to ride my motorcycle home safely. Turns out I did make it home safely that afternoon two years ago but after the ride home it was three days before I…

Ride 11

Monday morning.  Nothing to report.  It was an interesting experience trying to read a newspaper while standing. Something else I did notice is that I’ve been standing on my heals.  It must be because of my weight.  I’m determined to stand either full on my feet or lean forward.  (Wonder if this will help my…

Sick Leg

This post is a little out of chronological order but I’m making it now any way.  My leg doesn’t look right being puffy and discoloured.  It certainly doesn’t feel right. I need to finish the post about how my leg got this way – one day soon.

Still Going

Well, I’m just as surprised as you are.  I’ve made it to the gym every business day this year.  I wont be entering the Mr Universe any time soon as I’ve simply been on the elliptical machine.  I’m up to 20 minutes each visit. The ‘crew’ have a new weigh-in day scheduled.  I’ll let you…

New Year Push

I made it to the gym four times last week. A fifth trip on Friday was just for a sauna. I also managed to Wii Fit each morning. Today I went as well. Hope I can keep it going! Note: I noticed they cleaned the hot tubs out. I’m still not going in. Ewww!

More About Exercise

So, I only made it to the gym once last week.  But!  We did go out for a skate three times.  The last outing was for a game of shinny.  Seven guys showed up.  What a blast.  I have the bruises to prove. This week I made it four times.  Only twice did I work…

Last Week

I’m not really sure why I feel compelled to report this kind of activity.  Maybe it has to do with my hope to finally come through and lose some weight – get healthy again. Made it to the gym twice last week.  Once so far this week. We went for a skate yesterday on the…

Weigh-In Day

Went downstairs with the boys today to have my weight, etc. taken.  No surprises – I’m overweight.  With the numbers to prove it I now need to concentrate on making those same numbers smaller. Tale of the tape: Age – 42 Height – 5’11” Weight – 298 pounds BMI – 41.6% Fat – 34.5% BMR…
