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.
