All I did was float a post that I'm going to start posting again and some of my old regular readers came out of the woodwork to give their encouragement. Wow. I’m humbled.
So, let’s talk. For the last year I’ve been working (same job when I last blogged). And eating. And working. And eating. And playing poker. And eating. Do you see a pattern here? Do you see what I’m missing? Bottom line is I’m back to where I was before I started rowing, which was a couple years before I started running - which was a long time ago. Fitness? Zilch. Endurance? Zilch. Girth? El gordo.
In fact, my weight has me concerned. So, a few weeks back, I decided to start an exercise program. The program consists of walks around the neighborhood. That program was successful. For a week. Then came the excuses. “Man, I’m tired.” “Can’t go tonight, I have some work left to do.” Can you see a pattern?
I’m going to dust off the ol’ blog so that I can be accountable. I *think* that as long as someone is reading, I *might* be motivated. So – phooey on you guys who commented. If it wasn’t for you, I’d have a reason to put things off.
I’ll be updating on a regular basis. Right now, I will be doing a boring walk around the neighborhood (2.6 miles, two days a week) and one longer walk in the hills on the weekend. Keep in mind – “longer” these days means 4 – 5 miles. I’m also tracking my calories. Believe me. I have more than 50 lbs to drop in the coming months. Yikes!
