Falling Off The Workout Wagon Already?? But Back On Track

I guess that is the problem with using a blog is that it also records failures.  Oh well.  I have a lot of good excuses though if that matters.  And if I had to come up with one excuse, it would be my business.

Back in 2012 I weighed 197 pounds and ran everyday from 5 to 10 miles.  I was running 1/2 marathons and working out every day.  I once ran a 200 mile 24 hour relay race called Ragnar.

When I started my business I spent every waking hour trying to make it work.  If you have a business or have started a business from thin air, you know what i am talking about.

Now that i am going on 45 in January 2016, working out is more about longevity and health than looking good i guess.  Health is what is motivating me now and what got me back in the groove.

So back in the saddle with working out and have hit 3 days consistently with running (jogging for now) and getting in the gym each day.  The solution this time was making it a priority and not something to do if I had extra time.  So to do that, I have decided to work out each morning before getting into the office.  Otherwise, life happens and the workout does not.

I have gained abut 70 pounds in the last few years and I definitely want to get back to where I was.

This is a picture of me from March 2013 at 197 pounds  I was running, hitting the gym and doing cross fit.

It is going to take me some time to get back in that shape, but I am hopeful that i will.

I am going to try to make a daily “Tim” post from now on.  We will see how that goes.

Talk to you tomorrow.
