    So your routine, as I understand it:
    .8 mile to work with 10-30 pound backpack.
    Exercise class @ school - varies day to day

    Does that sum it up?

    What type of exercises do you do in the class? Can you tell us a bit about a week in the exercise class?
    And then I usually walk on the weekends a bit...

    We do these things called 'dot drills'. You have to jump around on these five spots in various patterns, some of them require you to hop around on one foot and I either can't jump far enough or can't balance or both.

    Usually it's 2 days in the wrestling room (because of the mat) and that'd be either pilates or tae-bo or something for 20-30 minutes. Then there's 2 days in the weight room which is two 4 exercise cycles with things like wall squats, various weight lifting things, push-ups, bicycles, lunge-type things, each for a minute, so that's 16 minutes usually with another exercise that the class does together, so about 20 minutes total. And then there's usually one day a week that we walk. So that's five days total.

    To Udog, in answer to your private message:

    I didn't realise that the list thingie and the '6 month challenge' were different, so I guess I don't feel the need to be included into a list as it's more of a lifestyle than a challenge for me.

    I consider those pretty advanced, so don't worry about the lack of progress. That's the type of thing an athlete that's in pretty good shape would do during training to work on footwork, balance, and leg strength.

    Just continue doing your best on those. Because they are fairly difficult, it might be awhile before you see notable improvement.

    Usually it's 2 days in the wrestling room (because of the mat) and that'd be either pilates or tae-bo or something for 20-30 minutes. Then there's 2 days in the weight room which is two 4 exercise cycles with things like wall squats, various weight lifting things, push-ups, bicycles, lunge-type things, each for a minute, so that's 16 minutes usually with another exercise that the class does together, so about 20 minutes total. And then there's usually one day a week that we walk. So that's five days total.
    Okay, so that's geared more towards cardio. How much control do you have over what exercises you do on the weight room days? Is it possible for you to get a notebook and log your weights and repetitions?

    My next question is, what type of food do you eat? (Feel free to PM any of this if you rather.)

    Thanks for the reply. I'm hoping that by the end of this, it'll be a lifestyle for me and at least a few other people as well.

    Keep up the good work

    I'm aiming for the "huge chest and arms, small legs" syndrome. It's the classic 1980's weight lifter look.

    My car is in the shop, but I went to the apartment gym and did a simulated "B" schedule. Lunges, shoulder raises with dumbells, machine pull downs, dumbell rows, and some curls (for the gurls).

    And of course the walking.

    Of course, I had pizza last night for the first time in 12 days (a Udog record!!), and pigged out a bit. I'll be good today, though.

    I did my workout twice last week but then I was sidelined by illness. Hopefully I will have my energy back in a few days and can get back into it.

    I always lose weight when I get sick, but it's probly usually the bad kind of weight loss, so I am trying to combat that by eating as much protein as I can still while I'm sick.
