Travis in Training
(If you are offended by a topless man, please turn back now.)
Day 1 of a Two Month Goal – Height 6’ 1” – Weight: 278
Let me first say this:
– Nobody asked me to do this.
- I’m not really sure this is such a good idea.
- I don’t take my shirt off in public. (that often)
- Hopefully people learn or like something about this adventure.
- I’m not selling anything.
- I am doing this for me, but want to share with you.
Warrior Dash Oklahoma is on the horizon. Here I sit just a couple pounds shy of my heaviest ever. I know muscle weighs more than fat and blah blah blah, but something tells me I have some fat that can go.
Let me break it down for you.
2001 – Graduated High School Weight: 252
2003 – Married my wonderful wife Weight: 265
2005 – Heaviest Weight: 282
2006 – “Got in shape” Weight: 239 (lasted two days before a 7 day vacation)
2011 – Weight: 247
2013 – Weight: 257
Today: Weight: 278
I eat too much. I eat late at night. Candy is delicious. Caffeine is a drug.
Now that you have my fat/fitness resume, here is the point. I am attempting to run this 3.2 mile adventure race in about 60 days. My goal is to eat healthier (as best I can), work out with purpose and get proper rest to see what changes take place between now and then.
Drop 20-25 lbs.
Reduce my mile time each week.
I appreciate any encouragement, keep the hateful comments to a minimum and follow me over the next couple months. Thanks! (Special thanks to my wife, whom I have kept completely in the dark about this until now.)
