My name is Jared Clark and I want to welcome you to my blog. I am 29 years old, and am a born and rasied Texas Boy!!
Let me take a moment to explain how this blog came about……
It was a June (2013) day when I looked in the mirror and realized I had gained some unneeded weight over the last few months. A few days later I was trying to put on some jeans when I realized they weren’t zipping up. I tried on another pair and got the same result. I knew I hadn’t been working out or eating as healthy, but this seemed really odd to me. I got on the scale and it said 173.2 pounds and I about fell over. I had really let myself go. Since then I exercised a little more over the next month and was now down to 172, which is still pathetic…..I know some will say that doesn’t sound like a huge number and I will admit that I am not fat by any means, but I did not like the way I looked or felt about myself. I was not in shape at all, and 173.2 was close to the most heaviest weight of 178 when I was in college before I started running. So for me personally 173.2 was a BAD number.
I will exercise hardcore for two or three weeks from time to time, but it never fails that I lose my motivation. Then one day I thought that maybe if I did a blog and put it out there that I wanted to get into shape that would help motivate me. I want people to hold me accountable. Also, this will give me a way to keep a journal of my journey and maybe along the way I can help motivate others to do the same.
Over the past year I have learned a lot, and have had some personal struggles that I have overcome with God’s help. He has opened my eyes to things that I need to work on, and I am tired of halfway living and floating around from day to day. I want serious changes in my life and that means I got to get serious about things.
I have found a program I am going to be using that last 5 weeks. As I go through the program I will keep this blog updated with what exercises I am doing, my weight from time to time, what I am eating, and whatever else comes to my mind. I do hope to get some pictures posted from time to time (if I am smart enough to figure out how to do that). HA!!
Throughout the next 5 weeks and moving forward I would love to hear any feedback, advice or tipes, about your personal stories, or anything you feel like tossing my way.
Have a Blessed Day!!
