I’m a 25 year old SSgt who’s been flying a desk around for a few years. I’ve put on about 30-45 lbs I don’t want and have never really been in very good shape anyway. I’m sick of being the “fat” guy in my shop, and I’m sick of depending on pity and charity to pass a rather easy fitness assessment. It’s just a mile and a half run, 1 min of pushups, 1 minute of situps, and a waist measurement. I currently suck at all of these things except pushups.
I’ve been reading up on paleo-nutrition and trying to eat better, been doing simplefit (negative pullups) for about a month, and running (or 30 mins eliptical) a couple of times a week.
I’ve lived in Montana 4 years and have only been skiing once. It was a miserable experience where I spent an afternoon almost literally falling down a mountainside. After one pass, I returned to the lodge and spent the rest of the day pouring beer down my throat to numb my broken and battered ass while my friends continued to play in the snow.
This season I’d like to try my hand at snowboarding. I’ve augmented my day 1 sessions to include burpies between pullups and pushups. At least this way I can get better at picking myself up.
