For the first time in a couple of months I did a workout.  To be honest, I am ashamed that I have let myself get so out of shape.  When I was in my late teens and all the way through my 20s, physical fitness was important to me.  I never was bulked up, but my weight was under control.  Now, I feel that I keep putting on the pounds and getting out of shape.

Last night

10 minute warm up on the treadmill for 10 minutes at 2.5 miles per hour
20 crunches on an exercise ball with 8 pound ball
20 presses on an exercise ball with 8 pound ball
3 minutes on the treadmill at around 2.8 mph
20 crunches on an exercise ball with 8 pound ball
20 presses on an exercise ball with 8 pound ball
3 minutes on the treadmill at around 2.8 mph
20 crunches on an exercise ball with 8 pound ball
20 presses on an exercise ball with 8 pound ball

Repeat for around 40 minutes or until 1.5 miles on the treadmill

Tonight I will probably do the treadmill, maybe some push-ups, or crunches.

Next week I will increase the time to about an hour, or 2 miles on the treadmill. Its only 3 full months until hunting season is here, and I need to get into shape to be able to walk to the deer stand, or pull the deer out of the woods.
