Day #1 – Yikes!

Day #1: 229.7 lbs

Today is the day it started.  I had this plan to use virtual reality to lose weight.  Most types of #exerciseisboring.  I think we all relate to that.

Going to the gym, working out on the treadmill, it’s all pretty dull.  I don’t have time to pack the car and go for an epic climb over the Rockies, or 4 hours to commit to a game of golf, all of which would be more exciting, and all though more fun activities are including in plan, I needed to come up with something fun while at home.

I love computers!  I love tech, and most geeks will tell you the Technology is supposed to improve our lives, yet we find in many ways it simply gets in the way.  I want to change that, even in a small way.  That’s where the idea of acheiVRfit came from.  A virtual reality fitness app.

Something you could use without buying another $2000 bike, something you slap into your Gear VR and use with your current equipment or even without any equipment at all.

So this is Day 1 and YIKES, you can see the pictures.


Pictures have a way of wiping your mental image away.  In many ways, I still see myself as that 150 lbs high school kid, not the 40ish, 229lbs guy in these pictures.  So we’re going to change reality with a little Virtual Reality, and try and get the pictures matching the mental image I have.

I’m going to be adding my progress, workouts, food, etc for you to see.  I more than welcome anyone to journey with me.  As achieVRfit gets built I really hope that others will want to try it.
