I was not all that serious at first, but I slowly worked my way up to where I am running about thirty miles every week. I have been trying to decide what I am going to do now that it is getting cold again. Last year I sat around a lot during the Winter, which was quite severe and I gained this weight. I am down about ten pounds now, but I still need to lose a bit more to be at what my ideal weight is. I found a site called eifpersonaltrainingschool.co.uk and they had a body mass index thing on there for some reason. I do not understand it, but a person my height should ideally be around 160 lbs and I am about 7 lbs more than that now. I am not sure that I take that as absolute gospel to tell the truth, because you see a lot of people who are built more stoutly than others.
I look in the mirror and I think that I am fairly well proportioned right now. There is a bit of flab around the waist and some on the place where I sit too it seems. Those are not areas where it is easy to do much though. People go through all sorts of things to try to get the real six pack effect on their abdomen, but I am not all that concerned about that. I would like to look and feel good, but I do not have a need to look like one of those models that has to take his shirt off in order to work. I want to feel comfortable wearing a tank top or wearing no shirt at all, but I do not have an obsession with getting perfect six pack abs.
