No More Mr. Fat Man

Ok, I have had enough of all of this weight I have on my body so i am getting serious about losing it. My overall goal is to lose 50 pounds. I weigh 210 right now so that would get me to 160. I think 160 would look healthy on me. So how am i going to do it? Slowly!!

I started running this week and jogged/walked 1.5 miles in 20:45. That's not too bad considering how out of shape I am in. Jeanne and I are going to run a 5K this weekend in Nashville and I signed up for a short triathlon on August 2nd, 2 days before leaving for Disney with the kids.

The running is always the hardest part for me so I am going to concentrate on that to start and then incorporate swimming into it in a couple weeks. Biking has always been something I loved so I will work that into it along the way. I also signed up for a triathlon class with the Champaign Park District that starts in June so that should help as well.

All Clear

Well I had another ultrasound and doctor visit and everything has checked out fine. He wasn't worried about it, gave me a new antibiotic and sent me on my way. It's been 2 months now and even though I have some pain now and then, I am not worried about it and hopefully the lump will go away over time. So now it's time to start getting skinny again!!!
