Transformation Tuesday: Trav in Training, Week One Complete

    travmorning basketballWell, here it is, the truth, not going to sugar coat things (Oh, yum, sugar).
    Getting fit is difficult.
    I know I’m not alone in this battle and if you don’t think it is a battle you must be naturally skinny. It’s funny how I know the right things to do and sometimes choose to do otherwise. I know eating healthy all day is negated by eating 1500 calories between 8 and 11pm. I know that drinking a two liter of Coke Zero in two days can’t be good for anything. I know sleep is better for me than two more episodes of House of Cards, but these habits are hard to break and how good is House of Cards? I mean, come on, guys.
    I’m not the strongest-willed person in the world and sometimes a tray of cookies is impossible to resist. That said, here is what happened this week.
    Results thus far: Down 5 pounds. Took a few seconds off my mile time. Didn’t pass out or have to lay down after running sprints.

    • 4.6 mile walk with my wifey
    • Ran all the sprints with the kids at lacrosse practice
    • Early morning basketball (Full court 5v5) two mornings
    • cleaned out the garage
    • garage workout with my son (jump ropes, push ups, curls. etc.)
    The great part of these “workouts” is they are mostly just fun activities. As I pointed out last week, working out is not the problem. I need to increase my fruits and veggies and remove the fast food fixes. (Did I mention that Braum’s has a new chicken tender dinner, delicious.)
    My eating has been better, but not great.

    • Chips
    • Fast food
    • cookies
    • candy
    • 1 real soda
    • diet soda
    Now that I have a semi-routine for boosting my cardio, I now need to get my eating under control. Here we go… week 2! Wish me luck.
