Fit 4 Con Update: Week 1

My first week of the Fit 4 Con Challenge is over and I’ve lost 1 pound. I was hoping for a little more, but given that it’s Week 1 and it was a holiday week, I’m not too worried about it. I am however more than a little sore from this week. I’d forgotten how much these first couple weeks can hurt. Of course it’s totally worth it. Right now I’m doing 30 minutes on the elliptical plus so basic weight lifting. Once I get back into the swing of things I’ll start to add in more lifting to target specific problem areas. 95 more days and I can totally do this!

The Fit 4 Con Challenge

Recently I was catching up on podcasts while returning from my employment-imposed exile in Georgia.  One of my favorites, The Rooster Teeth Podcast, was discussing a fitness challenge they were involved in during the lead up to RTX (Rooster Teeth Expo).  This got me thinking (something I should never be allowed to do in a car).   As a result, I will be starting my own personal, fitness challenge in the lead up to NY Comic Con.  I have written briefly about how there is a physical stereotype of geeks, and I am no exception.  In order to remedy this, I will be working out regularly, eating better, and posting periodic updates so you can both keep me honest, and amuse yourselves by my treadmill based suffering. There are 102 days till NYCC, so lets see what transformation I can pull off!
