My Fitness Journey

My Fitness Journey

In fitness, as in life, we gain more, not from having reached the destination, but from the journey to get there.  If you’ve read the “About Me” Section of this blog, you’ve read about parts of my journey.  I let myself go over the years, but it wasn’t just laziness on my part, it was also a lack of understanding of my own body.  To give you a little history of my weight problem, lets back up to the days before P90X and Beachbody.  I used to workout regularly, but my nutrition sucked, so that soon after I would experience some progress in getting back in shape, I would soon hit a plateau and then get discouraged, and soon quit trying.  The weight would go back up and with some extra pounds.  The weight slowly over time creeped higher and higher, I would come home from work in the afternoons and just sit on the couch from doing no physical activity.  I would catch myself dozing off at traffic lights, it was really getting bad.
