I have finally had enough! Enough with the out of breath business! Enough with the double chin business! Enough of my rolls and flabby limbs! I started two days ago, I have now biked 5 miles each of the last 3 days. I will starting Monday begin biking each day with weight training every other day. My goal is to get to 175 and be fit and built. I want a healthy life and I am committing to do this now. I will be using my blog as a sort of daily diary through my journey. I would love for everyone to use this to hold me accountable and give me encouragement. I know this will be hard, but it is something I want for my life. So here I go!

Starting Weight : 223

Today I biked for 20 min. 4.7 miles.

It was tiring today, but not as bad as yesterday. I felt the pain in my back upper thighs, but I pushed through it. When I was done I was very tight in my thighs. I probably should stretch more, I seem to rush that. But my energy has already increased so much. My knees had been hurting but that has gone away! So 3 days down and I am already feeling the increase in energy and my body is feeling stronger. My joints are feeling great! I am looking forward to next week when I really start my morning workouts and weight training. Wish me luck!

Also Katie will be working out as well, please give her encouragement!
