I've always been an active kid: swimming, dancing and playing softball and volleyball. Even though I continued to gain weight at the university, I played rugby. But as the old saying goes, "you can not do bad eating habits". I have been the best example.
I worked before starting my trip in November 2009, but it was not smart. I went to the gym for hours, spending time on the stairs or elliptical trainers until the calories burned exceeded 1,000 – and I followed them by eating junk food as a "reward."
Once I joined Weight Watchers, I started working smarter. During the first three weeks of the program, I focused on my eating habits. Then I gradually added 45 minutes on the climber, elliptical, or treadmill staircase three times a week to earn my WW activity points.
As I got more comfortable in my body and the weight fell, I decided to try a bike in class with a friend in the summer of 2010. J & I was over 30 pounds at that time, and I managed to pass the door because I had a friend with me. I had a good time and I loved the class. I went there three to four times a week around my work schedule. I would also like to try out workouts like Zumba and dance (hip hop) every once and again whenever a friend wanted to go. A friend and I found a Zumba instructor that we really liked, so we usually went to class every Tuesday for a while
(Sculpt a strong and beautiful body with six different 20-minute workout sessions In December 2010, I herniated a disc and had to stop coaching, but I still lost weight by following Weight Watchers' diet plan.) Meanwhile, I launched my blog, Weight Off My Shoulders, to tell what I was going through and build a support system. Thanks to my readership
While I was lying down, my wife decided that she wanted to start running, so I decided to join her once I got there. I was recovered in June 2011. I was allowed to start running again.I did seven races in total during this month. tais not supposed to grow too, so the distance ranged from 2-7000. From June to the end of 2011, I did 15 races, mainly 5Ks and 10Ks. I was hooked.
My trainings today really depend on what I am training. Since 2011, I have completed 58 half-marathons, 12 marathons, 15 triathlons (including two half-Ironman) and an ultramarathon (40-milers). If I focus primarily on a marathon, I run three to four times a week (which includes a long weekend run) as well as cycling, boxing, Pilates and even swimming classes. I like meeting with friends to try new classes, so I constantly try new fun things.
