Fitness, Health….goals

Was visiting over at Ryan’s site and saw another entry where he was discussing some of his lifts and personal records(PR’s). Over the past couple years fitness has become a major part of my life. I am 44 years old and feel like I am in the best shape of my life. Getting older scares the hell out of me and I guess I approach my health like I approach preparedness – I try to prepare to head off the effects of potential disasters.

From a fitness perspective I do Crossfit. You may have heard of it but if you haven’t check out this video below:

Crossfit is tough and challenging. I love it. I consider workout routines like Crossfit to be a perfect fit for those into preparedness as it prepares your body for a diverse number of conditions. I deadlift, clean, jerk (no comments please), snatch (yea…that is what it is called), bench press, overhead press, overhead squat (unbelievably difficult….try it), and more.


From a diet perspective the last 5 weeks my eating has sucked. But, overall I tend to eat very clean. I consume clean meats, vegetables, fruits…..and that’s it.

Crossfit, fitness, workout, health,

I would like to lose about 15 pounds – or gain 10-15 pounds of muscle.

Goals? Increase all my lifts – more details later.

Are you concerned with your health and fitness levels? What are you doing to maintain or improve yourself?

  1. Last year my wife had a number of potential health issues. I decided I needed to get in shape to take care of her. Thankfully they turned out to be all ok for which we are grateful. I began walking an hour each day, now jog and walk an hour each day and cut out carbs, sugar and almost all dairy. Result is I have lost 65 pounds, my wife 50 and lots more energy and stamina. While my wife will always suffer from the 5 major back surgeries she has had our physical exam results were tops! Keep prepared and Keep Looking UP – that’s where the help comes from. . .

  2. Well, I am definitely NOT in the best shape of my life! I am a little roughed up from 30 years in the Army, primarily spinal conditions from parachute injuries in the Airborne Infantry. I am drawing 100% Disability from the Veterans Administration. That does not mean I’m in a wheelchair! The sum of my different medical problems added up to 100% with the VA math. However, I still do some form of exercise every single day. I may be limited, by I have not given up. Physical fitness is key to survival! You can have the best supplies and weapons around, but if you can’t get away, bend over to set up a tent, or crouch behind some rocks to fire your weapon, you are screwed. If you don’t have an exercise program, I highly recommend you get started. Remember, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” (Confucius).
