Well buds I'm finally decided on it after thinking a long time on it I am going to join the Navy or some form of military...although the Navy appeals to me at best. First on the agenda is to get in shape...currently if I literatly lost 5 pounds I'd be eligible for it...but I'm not going to lose 5 pounds and just join like that...I have to pass the qualifications and since I grew up as a nerd geek guy who just happened to find himself interested in this sort of life changing experience I'm going to have to train my body for probably the next 6 months before I take the plunge. I plan on doing a daily running routine and walking routine....as well as doing pushups and situps as required by the qualifications. 50 Situps in 2 Minutes and 43 Pushups I believe for 2 minutes. Situps I can already do....could do em even when I was well over 200 Pounds easily....but I'm now down to 178 Pounds after laying off the junk food and working in a restaurant as a cashier. Hey I know it sounds crazy but since I was moving around alot....sheesh helps a guy who sat on a butt playing Super Mario since he was 2 or 3. Anyway main focus is on running as that is my main weakness....then pushups which starting tomorrow I will be doing situps and pushups within the home...and on hot not so cold days taking a long nice run. I'd rather do it during the hot...so I would lose more weight, but I'd have to get used to the cold as well so running during that is a given I'd also gain more muscle that way. I don't run much and in high school because I was rather lazy or just to out of shape I always came last in running. I need to ease up into the running to it to get used to it. Anyway any more suggestions or good cheer would be welcomed as well as advice as I want to get an education while I'm in there as well and not have to pull from the GI Bill for the education.
