Bad Day

I started off today's run with really bad hiccups, and if you have ever tried to run with hiccups, it's not fun.  I got 14 minutes into my run and just hit a wall.  I had to stop and walk and could not get myself running again today.  It was very discouraging.  I guess everyone has days like these, but I really wanted to get my full 28-minute run in. 

I think I am going to stop having free days with my healthy eating.  I feel like I get a little carried away when I feel like I can eat a little extra.

My brother Steven ran 3.2 miles (a 5k) today in 30 minutes.  He is rocking it.  Not going to lie... I am jealous.

I have my official weigh-in Tuesday for my blog.  I hope I see a little more weight come off.

Month 2 Before and After Photo

Hey everyone! It has been a great two months!  I am running a 5k in less than a week!  I still have a long way to go, and I will not stop.  I will lose the weight and keep running.  I have two more 5k races I have signed up for in April!  I start marathon training in May!  Life is great!  Here is the most up to date photo I have for my weight loss journey.

Oh and meet Tashio our cat.  He does not leave me alone when I am home.  We have a lot of fun.  Oh and I was trying to reshow Jen how to take the photo of me and caught this little gem!  LOVE YOU JENN!!

Reblog from One Twenty Five

I have no idea how to reblog something from Tumblr to Blogspot.  Please see what E from One Twenty Five said about being fat! I will also post it here. 

"Let’s face it, being over weight sucks. It does, it really, really does. If you don’t think this, I will challenge you to pull a Tyra Banks and wear a fat suit for a day, and I promise you, you will easily be converted to the tune of, being over weight? Yea, it sucks.

No matter how many cushions you place on your lap, how perfectly you apply your makeup, how black your clothes are, how well you curl your hair, how slim fitting a dress is, how sharp a suit is, people can tell you’re fat.

It’s one of the few vices that is public for the world to see; without taking a single breath, a stranger will know your weakness -> food (embarrassing, no?).

Being over weight in today’s perfectly airbrushed, gym obsessed, salad ordering world, especially if you’re of the female variety, isn’t that much fun and takes a lot of work.

A lot of hard work.

There’s the obvious physical effort of being fat, things are just harder. Everything is harder. Getting out of bed each morning is harder. Stairs become evil obstacles throughout your day. Walking between two locations becomes a subway ride because you don’t want to get sweaty, I can only assume if you have kids the task of playing with them is quite daunting, and the list goes on my friends….  This really isn’t too shocking as being over weight is literally like carrying weights around with you all day, every day –annoying, inconvenient and a lot of work!

Then there’s the physiological stress of it all. Exhibit A? See archives of this blog.  The amount of stress caused from being over weight is ridiculous.  What do I look like? Do I look fat? Can people tell I’m fat? Are people judging me? Does this make me look skinny? Will that fit? Can I fit there? Am I going to die early? What are my insides like? Will anybody ever date me? Sooo many questions that plague our days. It’s stressful, and quite frankly a waste of time and energy.  

Of course there is also the act of dieting.  Fat people are always on a diet, or trying to diet.  And dieting? Yea.. it’s hard work. It takes effort, it takes time, it takes persistence. You gotta read up on what to do, count things, write things down, measure things, remember what you ate, plan ahead, prep… oh God, just writing that out sounds like effort.  You’re constantly fighting with yourself, can I eat that? No. But I want that, maybe? No. Just this one time? No. O.k., maybe.. wait, No. Constant mental battles full your days when you’re fighting the battle of the bulge with yourself. It’s time consuming, and can become an absolute obsession, again, it’s hard work.

And eventually being over weight takes it’s toll. The days, months, years pass and every morning you wake up, promise yourself it’ll be different today(!) and then, BAM! for whatever reason, it wasn’t…

My point to my ramble? It occurred to me last night that maybe, just maybe, being fat is actually HARDER than trying to lose weight. Huh, well I never…

Don’t get me wrong, losing weight takes **a lot** of effort too, but the actual act of losing weight only lasts for a set amount of time and the benefits are HUGE, whereas being fat? Being fat you’re in this continuous state of hard-work, but with no positive outcome.

I now know, that if you’re going to live each day fighting yourself, you may as well be trying to get get healthier, at least there is a a HUGE-WAHOO!-FABULOUS-HIGH-FIVE outcome at the end, as appossed to a constant BOO-THIS-IS-HARD-AND-I’M-NOT-EVEN-GETTING-HEALTHIER/SEXIER aspect. 

Just my random two cents for this Friday morning, take this with a grain of salt (or Mrs. Dash if you’re watching your sodium)."

She is the bomb!  Everyone follow her blog!


Week 7 has been completed.  I did not want to get up this morning and run.  I wanted to stay in bed and sleep the whole day away.  That feeling did not go away driving to the fitness center.  But I ran anyway, and those first 5 minutes were a mental battle. Once I settled into the run, it felt good.  Week 8 is next week. I run 28 minutes Monday and Wednesday. On Saturday I will run my 5K.  I know I still have a week left if the C25K program, and I will complete it. But I did sign up for that 5k, and I will rock it!

I got to the gym this morning, and my brother was no where to be found.  I didn't want to wait too long.  I did my run, stretched, and showered.  I was about to leave and guess who comes rolling in.  He said he didn't set his alarm, but I am thinking he just wanted that little extra sleep this morning....  Sketchy bro...  Sketchy...  I am still glad you came today!

So I do not trust the mileage of those indoor tracks.  Does anyone have experience with them?  My pedometer said I went two miles again today but counting the laps I did, I only did 1.8 miles.  I really do not trust both of them.  I really need to map out some more outdoor runs next week and run them to be ready for my 5k.  Maybe I will get a better idea of how far I am going.  None of this sketchy indoor stuff.

Special K... You make me feel so special...

One of my weaknesses is Special K....  It is healthy, so I justify a bowl... or two right after dinner.  I love cereal. Back in the day, I could destroy a box of Family-Sized Special K in less than two days.  So Jen and I are not going to buy it anymore.  A part of my own personal process has been cutting out the things that will hold me back or things I have issues controlling.  I had a weak night last night, and Special K was my down fall. I am not going to let it be an option anymore.

Also, I have really made it my goal to only weigh myself once a week.  It has been so freaking hard.  I was used to showering and then jumping on the scale to see how I was doing.  I know that once a week is the best way to go.

Boot camp was very good today.  I love how it just kicks my butt.  Going to keep working hard and rocking the workouts.  25 minute run on Friday!  Woot woot!

Just do it!

Saw a quote yesterday and thought I would share, "Running is mostly mental, and we are all insane!" I love it!  I love to run; I hate to run.  It's a love-hate relationship but above all, I love the feeling I get after I finish my run.  Pushing through the mental blocks, pushing through the fatigue and reaching a goal you never thought possible is such an amazing feeling.

I still feel like the little fat kid in the back of the class trying to keep up with the big kids, and I am not sure if that feeling will ever go away.  I just love trying and reaching my personal goal.  Right when I finished my 25 minutes, a guy who was also running told me great job.  He runs marathons and told me I was doing a great job.  I love that feeling.

Keep working towards your goals!  Even if you have stopped and become discouraged, start back up, keep going.  Nothing feels better than finishing what you started.  Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.  If you cannot find 30 minutes in the day to do SOMETHING physical, than you should really reevaluate your priorities!  I say that with love because I know its true!

You can't do a push-up?

"Okay, everyone down, and do 10 push-ups, and no cheating!" My 11-year-old mind went into a panic. I can't do push-ups and the whole class is going to know.  So I got down and did my best.  I looked over and saw some of the girls in my class on their knees, so I did the same.

"Wait wait wait! Crosby do a REAL push-up!" yelled my teacher.  "I can't do one," I squeaked. "You can't do a push-up!?"  The whole class laughed.  He then proceeded to get down in the push-up position and cranked out 10.  "See Crosby, that is a push up! Now do one."

I tried and could not do the push-up. Everyone watched me.  The next three weeks were hell.  People made fun of me and told me I should try to do them against the wall.  They called me fat.  It was moments like these in life that really hurt, and I did turn to food for comfort.  I did spend many hours in my mom's arms crying.  I cannot let these moments in my past control my future. 

I am going to run a marathon in November.  I doubt any of them now can say they have done that!  Oh, and I cranked out 10 push-ups this morning!

Getting Older, Running Further

Today I ran 25 minutes without stopping.  I ran 1.8 miles and it felt great!  I just feel like the Alzheimer's is kicking in early.  I forgot to pack underwear today.... so my brother is running to my house to get it for me.  I called my wife and told her and she said "Well it is your birthday, might as well wear your birthday suit."  Thanks Jenn...

I cannot believe I ran 25 minutes today.  I have came a long way and I will keep going.  I am really excited for our 5k on March 5th.  3.2 miles and a changed life.  I want to run another 5k in April maybe two and Marathon training starts in May.

Life is good!

Down 40 lbs and Doing Life

I love Saturday's for many reasons.  I get to sleep in till 8am.  I go to a Full Body Workout class with Jenn and it is very intense, but I love it.  It is usually my free day as well.  Got to love a free day and today for my birthday my parents took my family to Nakatos, its a Japanese steak house and the food is amazing.  I got the chicken and didn't get the fried rice.  Still wasn't as healthy as I should of had, but I figured it was my birthday.  Oh and we wont mention the frozen custard as well.

GREAT NEWS!!!  I have lost 40lbs.  It feels great and I am getting closer to my goal.  5k is in two weeks.  Marathon training starts in May.  Lost of cool stuff.

I have had a shirt and pants that I am excited to be able to wear again.  They are the pants and shirt I wore when Jenn and I had our engagement photos done.  Its an XL shirt and size 38 pants.  When I started my weight loss journey I was wearing a size 44 pants and 3XL shirt.  I would say I am a 2XL shirt and a size 42 pants now.  Here is my attempt to wear them now.
It is still way to tight, but I was able to button up the shirt and zip up the pants.  It was very painful and tight but I did it.  I plan on posting another picture when I can fit into them. 

Jenn got me a new tech shirt and bumper sticker for Valentines Day.  It's a from Ben Davis Do Life Movement.  I am so happy to have them.

Last day of Intervals

HOLY CRAP!  I have just finished the last day of my interval runs for my Couch to 5K program.  Its all about the long runs now.  All next week its 25 minute runs.  HOLY CRAP!  My 5k is 2 weeks away!  Will I be ready???  I know that even if I don't run the whole way, I will have a ton of fun.

I have started feeling so good.  I cannot believe the changes that are happening to me and in my life.  I have a lot better attitude.  My doctor was very happy with me.  I go to bed at a normal time and wake up early. 

I am really excited about Saturday.  We are celebrating my birthday and going to go get Nakatos (Japanese Steak House).  Don't worry.  I will be good the whole day.  I am even doing the Group Strength class in the morning. 

Life is good!

This Is A Title

Wasn't sure what to write as my title, so there you go.  I first want to say sorry to all you grammar/spelling freaks out there.  Writing is never been a super strong point for me, so I appreciate all of you who still read my blog and forgive me of my spelling.  I also only usually have 10 minutes to write it before I have to clock in at work.  So please forgive me...  I am also talking to my wife, because it drives her nuts.

BOOT CAMP DAY 4!!!  I swear that class is going to be the health of me... I think Steve just loves to make grown men cry.  I did feel really good after today's work out.

I have my yearly checkup/physical today at the Doctors and I am really excited about it.  Last time they did my labs, I had all kinds of things going on that I needed to work on.  I am excited to see how 6.5 weeks of being healthy will show up on the report.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks to all of you who read my blog and have given me support.  And apparently if I quit people said they will punch me....  So don't want to get hit.

Jen posts my blog on facebook for me every morning and I am curious on what she puts as the title/comment for today's.   Do me proud Jenn.
Can't touch this

Yesterday was not a good day.  I didn't cheat and I did my workout, but I had a bad attitude about a lot of things.  I didn't want to eat healthy, I wanted to sleep in, and I didn't want to workout.  This is why people have such a hard time living a healthy lifestyle.  Not many people want to wake up at 5 am to go work out.  I for one would love to get that extra sleep in.  Most people would love to just eat whatever they want and not look at the calories.  I am not even talking about over eating, just being able to eat whatever you want for dinner.  I am an emotional eater, so it was a ruff day.

I know its good for me and will help me with the rest of my life... but I just wasn't feeling it yesterday.  I am trying to have a better attitude today and the determination to stay positive. 

I started week 6 today and was able to complete it.  I felt the hills a little more today.  I have one more day of interval running and I almost wonder if they are harder for me to do now.  It felt like I was stopping right when I was getting into the flow of my run and then walking.  Then restarting again was a lot harder and I had to refocus on the run.  I think that is a good sign.

What am I doing....

I had one of those moments this morning when I was attempting to do a push up then transition into a side plank and I caught myself thinking, "What am I doing here, I could still be in bed."  I had a weak moment.  I knew that the burn that I was feeling was me getting stronger and healthy. These boot camp classes literally kick my butt.

I know we all have moments when working out and changing our life when we think like that.  Do not give in.  I had to quickly shake off that feeling and embrace the burn and the difficulty of the class.  Steve our instructor came up after and told me good job and keep working hard.  Someone saying that always means a lot to me. 

Not every day is a great day.  Today was a hard one for me.  Just got to stay motivated and keep going.

Today is a GREAT DAY!

Today has been a great day.  Last night Steven and I mapped out a run starting at the fitness center.  It was almost 2.5 miles.  It was long enough for my brother to get his full run in and great for my 20 minutes.  I ran all 20 minutes!  What a feeling!  I could not believe I did it.  It is a lot easier to run outside.  I was able to focus on things around me and get out of my head.  I could not of done this a few weeks ago. 

I also want to point out that I ran a mile without stopping today.  I have not been able to do this or even tried since high school.  I did it in 13 minutes 19 seconds.  I run very slow, but I am running.  I know the speed will come in time.

I also weighed myself this morning.  Its not one of my "official" times but I still am very excited about it.  I am now under 300 lbs!!!  I got past my plateau and now weight 299.2. 

Jen is the love of my life and I am very excited to spend tonight with her for Valentines day.  She did a group strength class with me Saturday and the instructor said she was amazing!  I couldn't agree more.

Running is Mental

Running is mental.  I know that can be taken several different ways and I know my friend Jim will say "I told you so" because he thinks I am mental for running and I am going to have to agree with him!  I am really starting to love running and that is crazy to me.

I hit a huge accomplishment today.  I ran 8 minutes straight, walked 5 minutes and then ran 8 more minutes.  The first 8 minutes were okay and got hard at the end.  I really concentrated on getting my breathing back to normal before I started that last 8 minutes.  The last 8 was killer.  I wanted to stop after the first minute, but I kept going.  I wanted to quit and give up the whole time but kept telling myself to keep going, keep pushing, don't give up and you know what.. I didn't give up and I didn't stop.  Running is mental, you got to keep telling yourself to go and do it.  It was a huge milestone for me.   I might or might not of shed a tear or two.

I am confident that I can do day 3 of week 5.  20 minutes without stopping.

No Escarbes!

When I was in southern California serving my mission we had a saying, No Escarbes!  A ruff translation is "Don't dig in the dirt." We were taught this in correlation to the story of the Eagle who thought he was a chicken.

Fable of the Eagle and the Chicken
        A fable is told about an eagle who thought he was a chicken. When the eagle was very small, he fell from the safety of his nest.  A chicken farmer found the eagle, brought him to the farm, and raised him in a chicken coop among his many chickens. The eagle grew up doing what chickens do, living like a chicken, and believing he was a chicken.
        A naturalist came to the chicken farm to see if what he had heard about an eagle acting like a chicken was really true.  He knew that an eagle is king of the sky.  He was surprised to see the eagle strutting around the chicken coop, pecking at the ground, and acting very much like a chicken.  The farmer explained to the naturalist that this bird was no longer an eagle.  He was now a chicken because he had been trained to be a chicken and he believed that he was a chicken.
        The naturalist knew there was more to this great bird than his actions showed as he "pretended" to be a chicken.  He was born an eagle and had the heart of an eagle, and nothing could change that.  The man lifted the eagle onto the fence surrounding the chicken coop and said,  "Eagle, thou art an eagle.  Stretch forth thy wings and fly."  The eagle moved slightly, only to look at the man; then he glanced down at his home among the chickens in the chicken coop where he was comfortable.  He jumped off the fence and continued doing what chickens do.  The farmer was satisfied. "I told you it was a chicken," he said.
        The naturalist returned the next day and tried again to convince the farmer and the eagle that the eagle was born for something greater.  He took the eagle to the top of the farmhouse and spoke to him: "Eagle, thou art an eagle.  Thou dost belong to the sky and not to the earth.  Stretch forth thy wings and fly." The large bird looked at the man, then again down into the chicken coop.  He jumped from the man's arm onto the roof of the farmhouse.
        Knowing what eagles are really about, the naturalist asked the farmer to let him try one more time.  He would return the next day and prove that this bird was an eagle.  The farmer, convinced otherwise, said, "It is a chicken."
        The naturalist returned the next morning to the chicken farm and took the eagle and the farmer some distance away to the foot of a high mountain.  They could not see the farm nor the chicken coop from this new setting.  The man held the eagle on his arm and pointed high into the sky where the bright sun was beckoning above.  He spoke: "Eagle, thou art an eagle!  Thou dost belong to the sky and not to the earth.  Stretch forth thy wings and fly." This time the eagle stared skyward into the bright sun, straightened his large body, and stretched his massive wings.  His wings moved, slowly at first, then surely and powerfully.  With the mighty screech of an eagle, he flew.

Sometimes in life we think we are the chicken and we dig in the dirt with the chickens, but we are all eagles.  We all have so much potential.  There is no reason to be stuck on the couch or controlled by your weight or whatever is keeping you down.  Spread your wings and live up to your potential.  NO ESCARBES!

Did boot camp again today and it was a lot of fun.  I wasn't able to do all the reps, but I never had to sit out.  Its the little steps that feel great.  Friday I have two 8 minute runs!  I am pretty nervous, but I know I will be able to do it!

How are you going to live up to your potential today?

Week 5 I'm Not Scared

Okay... maybe a little.  I did do day 1 today and it felt great to finish it.  I did a 5 min warm up, ran 5 minutes, walked 3 minutes, ran 5 minutes, walked 3 minutes and finished strong with the last 5 minutes.  I cannot believe I am doing it!  It felt great to finish and it wasn't a major struggle to finish the last 5.  I got into a grove and just ran... slowly but I ran and did not stop.  In the three minute walk times, I am finding it doesn't take as long to recover.  Day 3 of this week is a 20 min run and I am nervous but I feel like I can do it!

Thursday I am going back to boot camp.  Just because its hard, I am not going to quit.  The idea of a 45 minutes butt kicking workout is exciting to me now.  Its such a great start for the day.

It was good to hear from you all yesterday.  You can reach your goals.  Keep working hard.  I think I am stuck at 302 on my weight loss right now.  So my goal is to break through this and be under 300 by the end of this week.

First Day of Boot Camp

Steven and I have made some friends and the fitness center and they asked us to start coming to the Tuesday/Thursday boot camp at the fitness center.  So today we gave it a try and it kicked our butts.  I love the feeling of being absolutely exhausted after a workout and I felt that today.

Steve is the trainer and he is a super nice guy.  He had us do interval training today and his goal was to keep our heart rates up for 45 minutes straight.  He took us through a whole series of workouts.  Lots of squats abs and upper body.  I have to admit that I had to stop and sit out for some of it because it was a little to hard but I am not going to quit.  I know it will get better and I really feel like this will be a great addition to my fitness goals.

If it was easy everyone would be doing it.  Keep working hard and towards your goals.  5k is less than a month away.  I am really excited about it and I know it will challenge me and I will grow from it. 

What are you doing to work towards your goals?

Worked out!

Got my workout in this morning.  Still feeling kind of sick, but I couldn't stay in bed another day.  I finished week 4 today with my run and will start week 5 on Wednesday.   Short post today because I don't have a lot of time. 

Keep working hard and you will meet your goals!

What Motivates Me

As I sit in bed sick, I am reminded of two years ago when I was trying to lose weight.  I got really sick and gave up on my weight loss goals and just put all my weight back on and then some.  So I have been reflecting on what has helped me stay motivated in my life change.  I am almost 5 weeks in I sometimes still think about eating my weight in Chinese food. 

The video that started it all

Ben Davis at Christmas promised his grandma that he would get his life back.  Called his brother who is a football coach and asked him to help get his life back.  He started a blog on tumbler Ben Does Life so his grandma and dad could follow his progress and help him stay accountable for his promise.  He had lost over 120 lbs and ran a marathon within that year.  Later the next year he did a Ironman with his dad and brother.  Following Ben's blog and facebook also helped me find another blogger who has lost a lot of weight as well.  She is a great resource, check her out.

He has been an inspiration to me.  Saw it last December when I was trying to figure out how I was going to lose weight.  I have started running and signed up for my first 5k.  I am even seriously thinking about running the Bass Pro Marathon this November.  I know if he can do it, so can I. 

The Program

To train for my 5k, I have started following a program called Couch to 5K.  I am on week 4 and could not believe that I am doing it.  I am very slow, but I am doing it.  I know that if I can do it so can you.  I know that I will be able to go to my 5k and be confident in my ability to at least run a good majority of the way.  I have joined the Couch to 5K group on facebook and the Couch to 5K group on Spark people and everyone is great!

I highly recommend you following this program if you ever thought about running.  We have a group of people running the 5k with us on March 5th.  My friend Bill Peterson is also a big guy and started training for it.  We are going to rock it!

I also mentioned that I am thinking about doing a Marathon this November.  At my fitness center there is a group that does the Jeff Galloway program for training for a marathon.  It is a long 6 month program and includes lots of cross training and run walking.  Check out the website and see if there is a group in your area!

My Family

I could not of done this without the help of my family.  My wife has been a great support to me and has believed I could do it.  She has been great trying to find us healthy meals and supporting me when I leave early to go workout.  She wakes up with me at 5am to help me make sure I do get up and go to the gym.  She then does P90x at home.  She is a rockstar.

My brother Steven has been running with me since I started.  He has done great!  We help push each other and we have been having fun while doing it.  He said he will keep running when he goes back to Idaho... I am holding him to it!

My mom and dad has been a great support.  Mom has been able to lose the weight and keep it off.  I know that she is always ready to help when she can.  She helped me get to talk to a nutritionist to start my healthy eating.  I also see her and my dad most mornings at the fitness center.  They have helped me stay motivated.

My grandpa.  The first week of my life change.  My grandpa Ron was told he had 24-48 hours left.  I spent all day with him before he died and I promised him I would lose the weight and live a long healthy life.  That was very hard on me.  I will not let him down or myself.

My Friends and this Blog

The best thing I did was tell everyone I am losing weight and that I started this blog.  It keeps me accountable.  If I quit now, it will not just be me quitting and moving on with life.  I will be quitting and all of you will know that I am a quitter.  That thought right there has helped me some of the mornings crawl out of bed, or not eat that extra serving. 

You all have been great and have said some amazing things that have helped me stay focused.  I have also seen several of you start working out and eating healthy.  That is amazing!  I know I need to stay on track to help you as well. 

You all have been such a great help.  Lets keep going and working towards our goals.

Shower Shorts

We are big fans of the show Scrubs in our family.  Not the last few seasons but 1-6 are GREAT!  Every time I get ready to shower after my workout, I think of the quote from scrubs, "Shower shorts, for the man who has nothing to hide, but still wants to."  I actually said that to my brother this morning.  Guess what I saw today, someone with shower shorts and it even had the wallet.  I had a good laugh.

I finished day two of week 4.  It felt great but was hard.  I am glad I did it.  I wanted to quit several times but never did.  I think I was really sore still from shoveling snow yesterday.  I hope the run will help. 

Good job for all of you who are still rocking the work out and keeping your goals!  If you have stopped its never to late to start back up! 

"Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true."

Can You Dig It?

Fitness center was closed this morning and I could not even get out of my garage.  So I put my shoulder to wheel and pushed the snow off my drive.  I thought to myself...  Self, this will be a good easy workout, not a big deal.  Then I got out and started and thought to myself... Self, you are a lying sack of #$%@.  That was killer.  Holy cow.  Talk about abs, arms and back workout.  I am ready to go take a nap... but I have to try to head to work.

Wish me luck!

You cannot see the driveway because it has a sheet of ice over it.

Your total weight loss is.....

So I braved the weather and made it to the gym.  Steven and I got a good workout in and really pushed it further than we have before.  We lifted and then sprinted 1/5 a mile!  That was a lot of fun.

So I weighed myself and I am down to.....  303.1!!!!  That is 27 pounds!  I am very excited about this weight loss.  I am going to keep going, keep eating healthy and RUN! 

Thank you!
