So folks, maybe you’ve been here before, and by here I mean a blog of mine. I could also mean, certainly, that you’ve been where I am now as well.
Well beyond the point of “ok”.
I am a fat man, and despite having very short periods in my life where I wore the skin of a thin man, I remained a fat man. I have lost, I have gained so many times I have refered to myself as the ultimate yo-yo. About 2-3 months ago I discovered I was not only fat again, but I was very unhealthy. My blood pressure was up, my cholesterol was up, stress was up, I wasn’t sleeping, I had no energy, I was moody…
It was NOT a good place to be.
I was 300 pounds…. again….
Well, I had enough. I actually did something I always put off and sought medical help. I was given a prescription for blood pressure meds and I put myself back into control of my habits. I started tracking what I was eating, I got into hiking again and I forced myself out the door and moved my ass.
I am happy to report that my blood pressure is now normal, I am sleeping again, still not enough, but MUCH better than I was. I am eating well, and I am putting up major kilometers on the hiking trails.
Oh, and I have lost over 20 lbs…
So all is going very well.
It’s time to set my sights on a goal. For me, right now, its to run the Tely 10 once again.
I ran it 2 years in a row and sadly have not the past two years and boy did I ever pay the price.
This space is for stats, tracking, talking, writing about my successes and my failures as I train this coming year.
Tomorrow I will have a list of goals and targets and I would ask that you, if you are reading this, help keep me honest and on track with these goals.
That’s about all for now. I expect to post at least a little something every day and I invite you to comment and chat!
p.s. first posts are clumsy devils lol
