I recorded while dripping sweat from my run (or maybe it was from the rain that started in while I was out). I ran 1.1 miles, and my shoelaces came untied at 0.9. Never try to run a quarter mile with loose shoes. It’s just bad.

That said, I weighed myself in today so that I would have a starting point for my goals. The measurements also validated what I said yesterday: I’m not fat, I am simply unfit.

I weigh 182.6 lbs right now, have 15.1% body fat, and a BMI of 24.9.

The last time I did these measurements I was at 155 lbs, 11% body fat, and some BMI that I can’t remember because it’s a useless metric.

My goal is to get myself back (close) to where I was before. It’s a reasonable goal. Losing ~27lbs and 4% body fat. I give myself a 6 lb buffer when it comes to weight, so I can go up or down 3 lbs and still be in my zone. So…24 lbs! hah!

I figure I will run 2 miles either tomorrow or the next day (honestly depending on the weather), and maybe work up to a 5k (3.1 miles) by next Thursday. Again, I don’t think that’s unreasonable because I ran a 5k for the first time in 5 months just a few days ago (but my legs were sore for a couple days since they weren’t used to being used).

That said, tomorrow I am talking about food and fueling for a run. Because I run to eat like the fat guy I used to be, lol.

What are your favorite recipes and how do you keep yourself energized? Let’s share!
