Fun with Exercise

I’m overweight. I pretty much have been most my life. The lowest recorded I’ve been was 225 lbs the day before I started working post college. Now I got pretty low at my second job and again just before my son was born. There’s something mysterious about a high maintenance, high stress kid that caused me to gain a ton of weight.

Now, this isn’t to say I don’t exercise. After college, I worked out 2 hours a day lifting weights because I was unemployed and in my 20s. I later bought a Bowflex when I moved out on my own to lose the weight I gained travelling around the country like a hobo who traded skills for a living and wage. I got into very much shape.

I later started taekwondo where I have recently obtained 2nd degree decided black belt.

Where I’m going with this is that I am back in the swing of things doing HIIT, tracking calories, playing with a Garmin fitness tracker, and have made some progress if only Seroquel would keep from making me eat a bunch.

I love stories.
