Hello Everyone,
This is my first ever Training Journal so it may not be the best detailed journal at first but i hope as the month goes on that i will get better and better at this. The first few weeks i may not do much because i have not really exercise or worked out much. Also i have some health issues that will not let me do much. I have pinched nerves and use a cane to walk. As my health gets better i hope that i can start to do more and start lifting weights.

So i weight myself and my start weight is going to be 348.6 pounds

What i plan to do for the first week will be:
-Stretch for 20 mins.
-Walk for 30 mins around the block.
-Dance to music for 20 mins.
-Stretch for 20 mins.
-If not in pain from my pinched nerves will to try lift some light weights that we have at home.

So this is what i will start out with and i hope to add more to it as i start to feel better. If anyone can advice any other things i can do that will not put to much stress on my nerves and lower back for right now i would like to hear from you. Thanks every one and i hope everyone has a happy new years, and a great 2012.

Great to see your journal, Miguel!

You just made the cut-off for the coaching program and Karen will be following up tonight/tomorrow if she hasn't already.

I'm excited for you and your success ahead! All the very best to you and of course, Happy New Year!

-Robert

So today was my first day of doing what i set to do. Since i worked today i changed it a bit to still work out for me.
-Stretch for 20 mins
-Since i do a lot of walking at work i counted that as my 20 mins of walking.
-Did 30 mins of dancing to music on the radio.
-Just stretch again for 20 mins
-Tried doing some push ups and sit up with out stopping.
*15 push ups
*6 sit up (started to feel pain in my lower back to be safe i stopped.)

It is nice to have this log because i feel that i have to do the work in order to post something on here. Till tomorrow
Miguel

Hey Miguel! It's Karen. I love that part of your workout plan is to "dance to music for 20 min". What a fun way to get exercise in!

Good luck to you in achieving your goals! I'm so proud of you and wish you the very best!

Hi Miguel,

This workout is great. Although you weren't feeling awesome about some stuff I love that you worked out! That shows dedication and consistency! I admire that so much about you!

How was your day today? How are you feeling?

Remember everyday is a day you are closer to your goal. Each little thing you do is a step closer to where you want to be! It seems far away now, but in a month from now you'll look back and see how much you've learned and grown and it's only going to get better and better!

Keep up the great work!

Hi Miguel, just being nosey as i noticed you posted your entry about the same time as me today. Your doing great mate.
Glade to see you are keeping going with your pinched nerve issues. I have similar problem a couple of years ago but had a microdiscectomy to reduse the pressure. I still get pain but nowhere near as bad as you but i can relate to the issues. Good to see you have the strength and determination to keep putting in an excellent training routine - good luck mate and keep going

Hey Miguel! So great to see your posts and to see that you're still working hard! Keep at it, buddy!

I like what Amanda said, that each day is one step closer to your goal. It may not seem like a lot from one day to the next, but when it's one month or one year to the next... wow!

Awesome work! Keep going!

-Karen
