I am a Firefighter/EMT part time and a full time business owner. I am married to the most wonderful girl in the world who is my best friend! Hit 50 and it scared the crap out of me and I need to get back on track for cardio and weight loss so I don't become a statistic. Mom died a couple years ago, did not wake up from surgery, very scary. Had to re certify for my fitness challenge for the FD. Seems fine for the young guys and years ago was for me, now it is more of scaring the crap out of me but its what I have to do to be combat ready. Doing a second story bailout on rope was challenging trying to get the old leg over the wall. Need cardio, strength training and reduced weight to get into shape. Not bad for may age, I can still keep up with the young kids but not as long...

My Goals:
Fell off the wagon on fitness, now I have to get back on and lose 40 pounds. Pudged out over the last year. Not happy with the way I feel. DW and I are teamed up this ime. Signing her up on SP today. Cooking lite, buying food lite. Cut out the cocktails (ecept on the weekends with moderation). Amazing how fast it comes off when not drinking. Goal is to have one or 2 once in a while but not all the time. Focused on healthy eating and fitness. After watching friends lose and get in shape it is my motivation. Have to be able to keep up on the fire ground. My SCBA re certification bailing out of a second story window this year was the motivator, was not a pretty site!

My Program:
Back on again, working out every day (that is the plan), 30 minutes a day for now, want to work up to 1 hour. Cardio and strength training.
