I'm 38 years old and I've had enough now. I used to be really fit when I was in the military. I was part of the elite Master Fitness soldiers in the service. I used to run all the time too. But that ended when I broke my leg. I was training for Soccer in Europe I used to play for the Germans - MVP one year. Now I can't even run 100 feet without things hurting. I went to the hospital and the darn doctor told me I had a bone disease called Multiple Myeloma - it's something on the sorts of cancer. I was told I had at most three years, but guess what doc, I'm still here. Since then I've done retired from the service and from playing Soccer.
After returning home to the United States, I've become a Couch Potato; meaning I became lazy with my looks and fitness. I've had enough of that now. I have started my workout plan again with my wife and kids. They are my inspiration and so far I have enjoyed the routine once again. Just finished our fourth day in a row of doubles - Strength training and Cardio, once in the morning and once at night.
I'm hoping to not be a quitter and maintain the workout, and tone my looks and gain back the healthy fitness that I am missing. Along with my wife and family beside me, we will become one healthy fit family. We eat right now and have stopped a lot of the bad foods that cause all the fat and weight that made us want more.
Good luck to my family and I as we tackle this program and defeat all odds on gaining our self respect and our healthy feelings.
