Stupid Mistake

In regards to my fitness and overall health, the last year and a half, was a HUGE mistake on my part.  My last four months in the Army was a huge waste of time on my part.  I only had to go into work, pretty much once a week.  Besides that I was getting paid to sit at home and stay out of sight.  Instead of using that time to stay in shape I pretty much just vegged out and did everything but that.  Then I went into security work right after leaving the Army, and my fitness level took a complete dive.

Sitting in a car for 8-12 hours a day, is by itself a terrible thing, as you’re cramped up in said tiny car.  You could get out and walk a round a bit, but that only went so far.  On top of all that, my nutrition was anything but that.  I would shove food down my throat, and follow it up with an energy drink or two, to help me stay awake for my whole shift, and it definitely started to take a tole on my body.

Now I wouldn’t say that I got fat.  Yes I got a little belly on me, but I wasn’t super obese, I was more skinny fat.  What really opened my eyes to what I was doing to myself, was constantly having to get taped after weighing in for the Army.  My entire 10 years on active duty, and I never had to get taped, but as soon as I leave the Army I have to start getting taped.  Not a great feeling.

So there is the full story on why I am so actively working to get back into shape, and change my life again.  What’s your fitness story?  If you have one share it in the comments below.  Thank you for reading.
