Hi there,

I'm a newbie to the whole survivalist thing, and one thing I'm realizing is that probably one of the first concerns I should have is for my own health and fitness. Just one the many things I have been neglecting.

Over the past 5 to 10 years my father has had several problems which are all aggravated by weight, so I have glimpsed my future.

A couple of weeks ago I stepped on the scales at the doctors and i hit 300lbs even, I'm almost 37, five foot ten and should weigh in somewhere around 180lbs.

So the my major goal is to see the lower side of 200lbs, I need to have cardiovascular strength as well as functional strength if I am going to be useful to those I care about in a post SHTF scenario.

First thing I have done is I'm trying to cut the crap out of my diet. I've completely eliminated soda, I don't drink all that much alcohol and I drinking water like it's going out of style. The hardest thing I'm dealing with is my drive-thru addiction.

I'm walking and cycling in order to get my activity level up and have started looking into fitness clubs but them seem like a bit of a waste of money at this point.

Thanks for listening,

Kyle

Went for an hour long walk yesterday and have sore shins, can anybody suggest a stretch or something to help with the current soreness and prevent future? Or is this one of those "Walk it off, cupcake" kind of scenarios lol

Canuk,
Congrats on starting your new life style. The biggest thing to remember is to dont let set backs stop you. Most people have a bad eating day or week and then give up. STICK WITH IT!
As far as muscle soreness one thing to try is taking vitamin E supplements. There are two kinds, natural and synthetic. Look at the label. In the US most of the time they are not labelled. Look at the ingredients. I think the natural is dl and the synthetic
is d. The body absorbs 90% of the natural for use. It only absorbs about 17% of synthetic. I cant remember where I got the info from. It may have been from a Mens Health magazine. Take a good multivitamin your body needs all the help it can get. Be picky on the brands you get. Many brands have a gel coating on them and they dont break down in your system.
One book I have is the Abs Diet. Very helpful with food choices and meal plans as well as work out info. Remember, its not a diet, its a change in life style. Thats why diets fail. When you go off a diet you go back to old habits and the weight comes right back on. Good Luck!

Congrats on the new regimen. Its going to take you 2 or 3 weeks of pain to get back in the game. Go slowly, increase the frequency and intensity, and you should probably consult a physician of the pain increases or does not go away as you get more active.

Take note of high impact exercises, they will hurt more than help. Try some swimming or aqua-fit type stuff to help with cardio and circulation. Eliptical machines and bicycles are excellent.

If you have sore shins from walking, you may want to check where you are walking (terrain) try walking on forest paths rather than gravel, check your shoes, these are often overlooked and play a large part in good foot health, and also check your gait and stride. Are you landing on the balls of your feet, or heel, etc. Probably just the shock of getting physical again, so pop in an Olivia Newton John album, and cinch up your headband.

good Luck.
