    Well inspired by Vintage82's log and the fact that I am sick of being a fat ass. I am going to start working out again and see if I can actually look like human again instead of 200lbs of chewed bubble gum.

    The stats:
    Age 31 :wtc:
    Height 5'6"
    Weight as of today 11/6/06 205lbs:rolleyes:
    Goal 185lbs.
    I am pretty stocky and carry prolly to much bulk for my height. I used to lift a lot so I was actually inshape once but still bulky. Now all that muscle has turned to nastyness. This I must remidy.
    I am so out of shape I know I can't just walk into the gym and start kicking ass. It would be more like walking in and passing out:rofl: .
    So my first week (every day M-F, weekends off) goals are as follows:
    1. Survive a mile on the treadmill. I don't need to run the whole mile but just ran as far as i can then walk till I am ok then run some more till I reach 1 mile.
    2. 10 mins at what ever pace I can stand on the eliptical machine. Just want to keep my heart rate up and continue the sweat after the treadmill.
    3. 50 sit-ups and 50 push-ups. just got to get used to the whole gig.
    4. Stretch after every workout no matter how lazy I feel.
    5. Drinking as much water as i can stand.

    No weight training just yet. I need to just get back in some sorta shape then work on my strength. No goals on food just yet. This is in the works just not too much change to start. Little steps I guess.

    So this morning I did the following.
    1. ran/walked 1 mile. Took 12mins and I had to slow down and walk twice. Pace was 5.5-6.0mph.
    2. 10 mins on the eliptical resistance level 4, decent pace, no idea the rpms.
    3. 25 sit ups, 50 push-ups. Tummy muscle cramp afetr 25, pussed out.
    4. Streched- Damn am I un-flexible
    5. Drinking water but need more.

    So ideas, thoughts, gripes, bashing welcome.
    Dave

    Good start, but if your diet ain't right, it'll all be in vain

    Oh the diet is comming but no reason to change everything at once. That has been a flaw of mine in the past. Going into it full steam and getting overwhelmed. Like I stated, baby steps till I get used to it again.

    I would say- don't worry about running all out. Run a few minutes, walk a few minutes, and go for 20-30 minutes total.

    Alternate your running days with elliptical days.

    And do some real lifting ;) www.ex-rx.net has depictions of all the exercises out there. If you're unsure of what to do- just look at some of the routines in the stickies.

    Today so far is all bad. Got a flu shot yesterday that swelled my shoulder up. I now have a golf ball under the skin. Also stayed up way too late getting some ass so I woke up late. I guess today is a slacker day.

    Why is today a wash? Are you at work or at school? Go to the gym after. I'm in a training class an hour away from my gym. I'm going straight to the gym after I get out, not back home. :)

    This weeks goal is to run a mile without walking
    Todays end results...I failed,lol. Had to walk once for like a min. 11:23 total time.
    Then my push ups and sit ups.

    Another goal this week is to drop all non diet soda.
