I've Started Exercising - For Real!
I've finally started working out on a regular basis. My wife and I have always gone for walks pretty much a couple of times a week, but it is never fast enough to be a "workout" for me and I've been getting fatter and fatter.
Right now I weigh 240lb and I have a 46" waistline. I don't have a weight goal, but I'd like my waistline to be a lot smaller. That means burning fat and building muscle.
And thank God I found a great workout partner. My buddy at work, Walt, is working out with me at 5:30am every weekday morning.
Maybe I'll take some before and after shots of myself and post them here (and maybe I won't - LOL).
We are following Walt's workout plan, which means lots of free weights, 30 minutes of cardio and working opposing body parts each day.
I'm looking forward to it. We've done one week so far and I haven't quit nor have I caught a cold (which is a usual thing for me starting workouts).
I'll keep you up-to-date on what happens.
My goal is to look good before I go home to Canada for Christmas, because the rest of my family is all totally fit and I'm not. Hey, vanity is an excellent motivator.
