Re: Fitness Checkin

I'm moving at the end of this week back to my college town. One thing that bugs me is the idea of finding a new gym. I am seriously considering sneaking into my college's rec center and work out there. I gave them enough money for tuition over the years. I should be able to use that place as long as I live!

My partner and I are doing squats this week. I haven't done squats in years!

That kind of stuff is always hard at first. One of the reasons I can never get into jogging is because it kills my shins.

I've never had swollen ankles before, though.
I used to get that too, but I stopped stretching before running ( walking 5 min, start jogging slowly is how I warm up) and no more shin pain, calf pain or lower back pain from running.
That was when I was 18, now I'm 36 (and 265lbs, about 18% fat) and still have yet to have any pain from running.
Though I only run about once per week. Other cardio other days.

About 50 min. of walking uphill on the threadmill today, burned 600 cals.

It is an unfortunate side-effect of going broke. I'm moving back to take back my old job.

Also, squats suck.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Had a pretty good running week. I only ended up missing 1 run due to some scheduling confusion, and I got my long day in today. Put in about 10.5 muddy miles, which felt pretty good after I got out of the 2mile headwind. I'm only up to about 18 miles for the week, but this is the longest week I've had in months. I think I'm going to finally get my ultramarathon in this summer if things will hold together.

Re: Fitness Checkin

My elliptical machine broke down last week, but it finally got fixed over the weekend (thanks to Dad's and brother-in-law's help). Still, I missed about five days of cardio exercise. At some point, I thought about walking in the park or just outside, since it was brighter and the weather was really nice, but I realized I didn't like the crowds, bicyclists, dog poop, traffic, etc. Now I'm slowly getting back to my routine.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Got up the nerve to try out our condo's gym today. It's nothing big or fancy, but they have several cardio machines and weight machines. I managed to do about 45 mins on the elliptical which is pretty good considering how sedentary I've been.

It felt pretty awesome to be working out again, and I love being in the city and even just walking around more.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Now that my mentally-taxing move is over and my new kitchen is clean and actually usable, I can finally get back into a routine. The kitchen in my new place was fucking nasty. I feel like I should get part of the previous resident's security deposit for all the work I had to do (I had to use 3 cans of oven cleaner to get all the grease and dirt off the floor!).

Worked out tonight for the first time in 10 days, and tomorrow (in theory) I am going to wake up and go for a walk/jog/run/something. Now that the weather is getting better, I want to start every day with 15-20 minutes of cardio outside before I do anything else.

Re: Fitness Checkin

As of this morning I weigh 239 lbs (I weighed 255 lbs when I started this last month), which means my meal plan and exercise routine is working.
On a side note, my brother currently weighs something above 300 lbs. He's 2 inches taller than me, and 7 years younger. The reason I don't know how much over 300 lbs is because that's as high as my scale goes, and then it resets back to 0.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Joined a new, way better gym yesterday, and I worked out for the first time there today. There is so much frickin equipment, and the plates are made of metal! So excited to get back into my routine after my move.

Re: Fitness Checkin

It's been about a week and I've been eating fewer calories and have increased my activity level quite a bit. I didn't expect any sudden changes, but I weighed myself at the gym here and I weighed ten pounds more than I've ever weighed in my life! It was one of those doctor type scales, not digital. I don't know if that's what I really weigh, or what, but it was a little depressing.
