Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

Happy Thursday

Last night, I completed my second 100 Pushups workout.  Since I had trouble completing the first full day, however, I decided to modify my plan a bit.  Instead of starting with my on-the-floor pushups, I'm going to run through the program once doing them on an angle.  Then, after finishing the program that way, I'll go back and do it closer to the ground or on the ground.  Doing that, I finished my workout with 25 repetitions on the final set, placing my total for the workout at 63.

I'm still doing fine on my calorie counting, and on my daytime activity level.  This was my second day standing at work.  My feet are a tad sore, but not bad at all.  I can already see and feel the first bits of difference, specially around my face and the overall bulge of my gut.  I'm really hopeful that this time I'll be able to maintain my progress for the long term, and that I'll be able to sink to new lows on the scale.
