The Countdown Begins!

The Countdown Begins!

5 months from tomorrow (April 16) I will celebrate my 50th birthday.

I’ve thought long and hard about how I’d like to mark that day. I’m actually rather excited about reaching that momentous landmark in my life, and am looking forward to celebrating.

Most of my life I’ve struggled with excess weight and some real issues with fatigue. I have literally tried everything to combat the two of them, to no avail. However, now that I’m reading the book The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing I suddenly have hope that both can be permanently conquered in my life. As I’m reading, more and more things are coming to light about the way I train and the way I eat that are hindering my goals.

So, here’s what I decided. Starting today I am embarking on the challenge to be in the best shape of my life by my 50th birthday. That means I will be down 30 pounds, I will be energized, my brain will be clear, and I will be strong and fit.

Tom and I are both going to tackle this together (which is kind of fun – his 50th is a month after mine on May 20). Following the advice of the book, we have set up our training program (more about that, later) and due to the symptoms we’ve been experiencing, we’re going to begin our nutritional program with a two week test to see whether we suffer from a certain level of carbohydrate intolerance (more about that, later, too!)

I’ll be posting our results here on a regular basis, and also giving you the details of what we’re doing, so you can follow along if you like.

So, wish me luck, and watch this space for the updates!
