Moving UP

by Volker Weber

Two years ago I started a program "Twenty three and a half hours". The idea was you need to exercise at least 30 minutes a day to stay healthy. This year I restarted in the middle of April, six weeks after my fall at CeBIT. Within 4 months, I am already far ahead of my schedule. I am stronger than ever, and my walking is only restrained by the blisters I acquire. I am still very much overweight, but I converted a lot of body mass into muscles. Weight-loss does happen, but it's not the primary goal.

What has changed? I am tracking with a Jawbone UP and I have a personal trainer. She's three years old and runs like hell. Today was a good day with an extra 10k in the evening to break in new shoes:

Gratulation, Volker, ich weiß, was Du meinst. Bei mir ist es Laufen und ich bin sooooo nah dran, zweistellig zu werden :)

I've started going to bed earlier since getting a Jawbone UP. Makes me more aware of how much I sleep (or don't).

Chapeau.

"Weight-loss does happen, but it's not the primary goal."

Most important is the second part of this sentence - if you are only going for weight-loss, sooner or later you'll loose interest/motivation. Just aim for the joy of movement, the rest will come ;-)

Congrats Volker and keep on moving...

Nice moves. The Scarpa shoes look like climbing shoes, there is still potential vowe - go for it!

Congrats Vowe.

What Mike said. Movement and being outdoors is so much fun. I wish somebody had told me earlier ;)

Before I can climb anything, I need to lose at least one suitcase.
