It's Not Too Late to Lose Weight!

I don't know when that age is, but there are a lot of people that reach a certain age & think they are too far gone to lose weight!  At that point, they just kind of "let themselves go."

Let me tell you, you are not too far gone, and it's not too late!

Look at me!  I used to weigh about 270 pounds!   I'm in the high 180's/low 190's now!  AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) sends me mail at least 2X per month that says "please join us!"

So if I can do it, you can do it!  Go for it!  And keep reading this blog & be encouraged!

WOW - Workout Wednesday

I want to first say that I consider myself very blessed to be able to train and compete in Master's Track & Field.  I am at an age where I constantly receive mail from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) asking me to join!  LOL!

I've come a long way since weighing about 270 pounds!

If you don't know my story, please read my blog profile.  Also take a look at my before & after pics!

Now this blog post highlights something I've been wanting to do for a while: post a video of one of my workouts.  So what you'll see below is one of my track workouts...I'm calling it WOW for Workout Wednesday (shout out to for the idea).

Anyway check it out.  I expect more WOW videos to come!

Quick Workout after Eating Too Much!

Today is one of the few days that I'm doing two workouts!  I needed it because I had fajitas for lunch yesterday and Chick-Fil-A for dinner!  LOL!

I did a quick 20 minute workout around lunchtime.  Then late this afternoon will be my track workout where we will run some bleachers (among other things) as part of some one's graduate school research project!

Here was my lunchtime workout:

  1. Jogged 1/4 mile on the treadmill to get the juices flowing - about 2 minutes
  2. Did some stretching - about 3 minutes
  3. Did the workout in the video below

4.  Then I did 3 sets of 100 sit-ups per set consisting of knee-tucks, twists with a 10 pound weight, scissors, and combination dumbbell press.

Real simple, real cardio, real quick!
