    Ok, I'm in.

    I'm just leaving for an hour long hike on my mountain to think about my goals for the next six months.

    This is a big deal for me. I consider myself an athlete, but thanks to injuries, depression, poor diet and lack of motivation I've let myself gain 75 lbs over the last two years.

    Today I did a 1 hour hike on my mountain. I did some back stretches, but I got distracted and took a shower before I got to do any core work or pushups.

    Goals

    My long-term goal is to run in a 50k trail race in february and lose around 50 lbs in 6 months.

    My short term goal is to lose 15 lbs in the next 4 weeks. (that's more than I expect to average over the next six months, but I'm anticipating quite a bit of water weight loss at the beginning... Hopefully no lean muscle loss!)

    Additionally, given that I have sciatica I don't want to miss a single day of doing back stretches. I'm hoping the stretches and weight loss will resolve my current back pain issues.

    My first priority is my health so I'm willing to change my running goals if my back issues don't clear up in the next couple of months.

    Current weight

    My morning weight was 271.5 lbs.

    There's a very good reason why I want to get back into ultra-running shape...

    Sometimes, however, this sense of isolation, like acid spilling out of a bottle, can unconsciously eat away at a person’s heart and dissolve it. You could see it, too, as a kind of double-edged sword. It protects me, but at the same time steadily cuts away at me from the inside. I think in my own way I’m aware of this danger— probably through experience— and that’s why I’ve had constantly keep my body in motion, in some cases pushing myself to the limit, in order to heal the loneliness I feel inside and to put it in perspective.

    Don't beef it on the rocks while hiking.
