OK, T-Ball season is over (finally) and I have time to read (and post) again.
I don’t want to steal any thunder from this thread, but it made me think that maybe here is the best place to go for some advice.
OK, I’m overweight. No, that’s not really true. I’m fat. I can admit it. My 5-year old daughter (lovely honest child) will occasionally stop in front of me as she is walking by, pat my stomach, and say, “fat belly, fat belly.” When “Finding Nemo” came out, some of the kids in my Youth Group started calling me Jelly Man (fortunately that one didn’t stick).
Now, the time has come to do something about this, er… well, … expanse. Gritty details. I’m 35 years old, and most of my waking moments are spent in front of a computer or tv. At last count (earlier this week) I was a bit over 300 lbs. and I stand about 5’10". I have dumbells and a treadmill at home.
So, I’m going to get started back into a workout (along with a diet). I’m determined to lose the weight, and hopefully not find it again. I need some help designing a workout that will be the most beneficial. After reading the thread above, I think I have a few ideas, but I wanted to see if I could elicit some advice first.
I can probably work out for about 30 minutes - 1 hour each day, depending on whether I do it in the morning or at night. I could do both, but I don’t know what will be most effective.
(I’m thinking of getting a simple weight bench. Not a barbell bench, just a flat bench.)
So, give it to me. What should I do and where should I start?
