Doing it for Me


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


My name is Mike, I am 33 years old a wife and a daughter.    The last few years we have lost a lot of family members because of one thing or another. I notice that most of them did not really take care of themselves. Sat around  watching tv and eating horribly. I decided that I did not want to end up being a couch potato, plus my 5 year old daughter is always on the  go.  I found that I could not even keep up with her.  So I decided to do something about it. 


So I am 6'3" and 240 lbs, well I was when I started running. I am currently on Week 2 day 2 of the program.  I have set a goal for myself that I want to get to 210LBs  and run a half marathon by the time I am 35.  That gives me almost 2 years.  Both I believe are do able.  I have my first 5k set on October 17th. So now I am on the move.


Good luck to you all, remember you are your own worst critic and you have to tell yourself that you can. Then you will.

Fab story Mike! I'm the same we have a lot of family members who don't look after themselves. I want to be a good role model to my children who are 7&4 my youngest starts school on Wednesday so I will have a bit more free time!

I currently do yoga when the kids go to bed at night as that's the only free time I have so looking forward to some time to focus on me! I'm currently 15 stone 8lbs and a size 18 by Christmas I would love to be a size 12-14 and I'm already signed up for my first 5k in November which I hope will be easier if I start using this programme soon so well done for taking the first step! I look forward to see how you get on
