Hey PK... I am behind you all the way. It is a major undertaking, but I think it is a great goal to meet and would love to see you accomplish it. So how is the running thing going? Maybe I can help in that area... I love to run and often make it a game of sorts out of it to keep me motivated. Most of my workouts are only motivated through my personal wants and desires, I can only imagine what I could accomplish if I HAD to do it.

Boy, that's an ambitious diet. An Italian with no bread or pasta? Yikes! Seriously, you CAN do it and we're here to cheer you on. If you have a weak moment, pick yourself up and get right back to it. We'll still be here!

Best of luck to you, Officer! My brother is a state trooper ... we tease him about donuts and coffee! :)

Hey Pasta King sounds like a tough diet especially here in the fattest city in the US cheesesteak capital of the world and all... I find it hard to resist the 3 carts selling bacon egg cheese hoagies on the one block between the EL and my office every morning. Good luck! we need more good cops around here.... not an easy place to be an officer either so I am sure you will be happy to be more fit.

Did you see that big add in the paper last week? The Philadelphia Police Force is really trying hard to recruit people. I have tons of police friends, and they all tell me how easy it is to get in now. They simply just need people. They even took a bann off. At one time you had to live in Philly to be a cop there, now you don't.

I went out and tried to run. I had no idea I was so out of shape. I ran one mile and felt like I was going to die!! My chest hurt, I was breathing heavy, and I was sweating like a pig! Then I go inside to do some push ups and had this pain shot right up my arm, into my shoulder. I fell to the floor. I could not hold myself up, I was in so much pain.

God, what happen to me? Really. I am so upset here. At one time I was 150Lbs of pure steal. I could eat anything I wanted, and worked out like crazy. I was lifting up cars to show off for the girls at our 7-11 hang out. If they could see me now.........

It doesn't matter though right? I am going to stay with this. I am going to get in shape again. Maybe not like I was when I was 17, but I'll be in enough shape to pass that darn test in May. Even if it kills me.

lol, it just might!!!

Be careful with the exercise. You don't want to wreck your body and not be fit enough to try out for the force. You may be advised to spend the money at the start and get a fitness consult. If you tear a muscle or a ligament or wrench your shoulder at the start, your regime is going to be up the creek. Good luck though. Very brave!!

Hey PK yeah I know they are trying to increase the force which is a good thing. There is so much out in the open crime that I see it is amazing. People know they wont get caught.

On fitness I hear you... for a long time I was able to smoke and drink and eat and feel very little negatives for it... turned 30 and everything changed. Quit smoking (again) 6 mos ago and trying to get myself back into shape too. It is hard becuase my knees are shot so I cant jog which was my preferred exorcize. I do good when I can go to the gym but havent been motivated with the home reno and the new job and moving and all have to get back on that though. When the weather gets nice I will hopefully get a chance to ride my bike more too. Try to eat healthfully but I really can't bring myself to diet. I have put a ban on the bacon egg cheese breakfast hoagie!

Good luck sounds like you are determined. You will be surprised how quickly your cardiovascular strength will improve just keep at it and increase your workout slowly.

I am trying not to report on this thread everyday, but it seems that each day brings new change.

I did 100 push ups!!

I did 100 sit ups!!!

And ran the whole 2 miles!!


Was I hurting??? YES !!!

I also had a pasta moment. Is it still cheating if I only have a few fork fulls?

I asked my dietticion ( did I spell that right? ), and she said it was ok to have a little. A few fork fulls won't hurt, and that it was better then fighting myself. Ah..........

All in all I must say, I do feel in better shape.
Doesn't take long to start feeling good, and it hasn't even been a week yet
