Smile Day 2 of doing it my way

Good Afternoon!

Here I am at day 2. I've walked 2 miles each day and today I lifted weights. I took it easy and only lifted to exhaustion.

Here are my goals.

Lose 50 lbs by October
Get my blood sugar under control and get off my meds for type II
Get in better shape so I'm not so tired.
Walk a 5k by August 30.

I really would like to try a couch to 5k but my knees are killing me and I need to see the ortho first. Also, I drive a cement mixer for a living and I need to protect my knees so I can climb up and down the ladders.

That said, I'm sticking with walking for now. I'm going to walk 2 miles a day 5 days a week and 3 miles a day the other two days. At the moment I'm using 2lb hand weights and I plan to add a lb every two weeks until I'm up to 5 lbs hand weights. After that I'll start wearing a weighted vest to increase my resistance.

Please feel free to leave comments as I need all the motivation I can get.

Have a wonderful day!
