First, I Call Out my Enemies

Homemade: Too damned good

Today's Weight: 280.5

When I'm exercising, I like to imagine how much more I could do if I was not carrying a hundred extra pounds on my 5'91/2" frame. I've been working out steadily at work for three years now. I've lost about 67 pounds over that time. The problem is that I've gained 60 pounds. My favorite piece of equipment is the treadmill. I find that its a good metaphor for what's happened for the past few years.

Today, I had my best effort in awhile a 29:30 3-mile. I imagined doing this nine years ago when I weighed 180 pounds. I would have to run three-miles with a solid 10 or 11 year on my back. I don't think I could have done it. If I get that child off my back, how well could I run? At my peak I ran a 20-minute 3-mile in Cross. Can I get there? Ask me again in year.

That's my plan. To lose the weight again. 100 pounds in year. How will I do this? Maintaining my workout regimen and eliminating my three enemies: pop, french fries, and Premium Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (easily the best ice cream and the best cookie dough my miles). Today was my last day. Wish me luck, Internet.
