Re: Fitness Checkin

Well, LIFE happened and got in the way of my fitness and my karate. New job, new town, relocating, resettling, and now 18 months later...

So, my wife had the brilliant idea of getting us a Y membership three weeks ago. I haven't been in a karate class in 18 months, and had let my fitness go to hell.

So, I tried their wellness room. I lasted all of 8 minutes on the elliptical runny thing that first day, and at 3 minutes really wanted to say, "f this" and go home.

But I kept with it. I'm settling into a routine of 10-15 minutes of cardio, 30 minutes of weight machines (arms one day, legs the next, and core each day), and then another 15-30 minutes of cardio. I'm down about six pounds.

Today, I went two miles over the course of 35 minutes on the elliptical runny thing.

Now.... how to keep with it.
