fellow Michigander, that is truly inspiring.. I used to be a collegiate NCAA varsity athlete.. could run a mile in less than 6 mins, bench press my own weight, im 5'9" and used to be a nice lean 143lbs... now im pushing 215lbs and cant even bend over to put my socks on without my gut pushing against my diaphragm making breathing difficult..
If i could do HALF of what you did... it would change... my... life.
its so hard when you work full time/opposite shifts as the wife, and have a 10mos old baby.. I am going to read your blog.. I hope it helps. Good for you and congratulations!
Outstanding! Many continued blessings to you and your family sir.
Congratulations, and thanks for posting this.
I am happy I could provide some small motivation. Your story is great man, keep it up. I'm very happy for you!
Most inspiring Cupcake. You gave yourself a second chance and a new lease on life.
I remember TN_Mike and his transformation back when I was a new member.
Both you guys have been an inspiration to myself.
Brother, you can do more that I have! If there's one thing I learned training for the Ironman, it's that our bodies will do way more than our minds will usually ask it to. Years ago, I put both my kids in a jogger in all sorts of weather. I'll admit it complicates things, though. P90X at nap time might be a great option for you - it's certainly not the only way but it's a legit workout. That and keep your diet in check. Get a George Foreman grill. Cut out excess carbs. Thanks for checking out the blog! Here's a couple entries that you might like to start with:
