Weight Program Update

So - this is just a quick update as to how I am going about my transformation.

6am - currently jogging a half mile (that is 2 laps around a track OR 10 laps in a gym); Lunges - 3 sets (from baseline to free-throw line or half court); 3 sets of groin' stretch to the right, to the left, and squats (hold for 10 seconds each way); 30 sit-ups (3 sets of 10) - all ending with light stretching and walking a few laps OR jogging down and back on a basketball court.

Drinking LOTS of water and also already changing my diet - more fruits and veggies - V8 juice, pomegranate juice, light yogurt, whey protein, flax seed, nuts ( I actually ate all of these things the last time I was "on a diet" back in July of 2009 - not too bad tasting!)

5 hours after my first day - my legs feel like rubber and my calves are burning! No pain, no gain (I suppose).

Tonight - either a walk around the block OR walking/running in the pool

Officially weighed in at 309.5

I'll keep you posted - 1 day down, a lifetime to go! (SBC)

Hello Coach Mac

About 1 1/2 years ago I changed my eating habits (not a diet) started walking 3 to 4 miles a day and in about 6 months I lost 34 lbs. If an Old Geezer like me can do it, I'm sure a young whipper-snapper like you can do it! Keep up the good work coach.
