What a difference a year makes

March 2009 - Now

In someones eye's I will always be the big guy. If you weigh 180 you'll still think I am fat when I reach 250. Your jokes, your looks and your comments only make me stronger. I will never give up. After my destination is reached I will continue to press on.

Circuit Training 101

Circuit training is a combination of high-intensity aerobics and resistance training designed to be easy to follow and target fat loss, muscle building and heart fitness.
For the past 3 months I have added circuit training into my workouts. In 1/2 the time of my old workout I can work multiple body parts (most days I do fullbody) and burn more calories.

Work out

30 minutes weight training, 10 minutes on treadmill, 65 minutes on elliptical 935 calories burned.

The things people say

WOW! While disscusing my plans for the Atlanta Half Marathon ( a co-worker had the nerve to say "If you run why are you still so big." My reply..... "I've lost 92 lbs, here is my before picture (showed him my work ID..picture taken in '08)now what do you have to say?" Silence...... When the shocked looked left his face I challenged him to join me and run in a race with me (5k or 10k ) Guess I have to show him how it feels to get beat by a FAT GUY..... He declined.....
