Over the past five years or so, I packed on about 35 lbs. I used to be a lean 165lbs at 5'10" At my heaviest a year ago, I weighed just over 200(!) lbs.
I attribute it to a sedentary lifestyle, getting married, and not really giving a shit. I decided being fat was horrible in every possible way; I had no energy, lacked self-confidence, and was just pissed off about being out of shape. So, last year I made a resolution that I would get back in shape, but of course when Jan. 1st comes around, and you're fighting a soul-crushing hangover, things get ignored or pushed to the side.
A few weeks ago, I decided, once again it was time to change, and I ordered P90X. Holy. Shit. My first foray into it was awful. I couldn't get through an entire DVD if my life depended on it. I decided as a precursor to going full swing into the program that I would do the DVD's but at my own pace. There's this one workout in particular called Plyometrics, which is roughly translated as, "You are going to die."
It's been a big struggle to get through these workouts, and I figured I'd seek some motivation from my fellow nerds. I was thinking about setting up some sort of "leveling system" to keep me motivated lol. Like right now, I'm a level 1 noob, with no idea what the hell is going on, but maybe in a few months I may level up. You can take the nerd out of the game, but you can't take the nerd out of the nerd... or something.
Surely I can't be the only gamer who is sick of being out of shape. Let's hear your experiences with getting back in shape!
