Well I have had a boatload of technical difficulties in recent weeks. I am definately a gadget guy. I have a laptop, a desktop, a tablet and a smart phone. I will let you guess how many of these were not working in recent weeks. Thats right. All of em. Well, after many attempts to save the data on the laptop, my main computer, i finally gave up, and formatted and reinstalled the operating system, losing everything, but most importantly my pictures that weren’t saved elsewhere. The desktop was beyond compare, and I ended up (very cheaply) replacing it by buying one that was collecting dust in a buddies closet. It’s a few years old, loaded with vista and is wayyyyy out of date but will serve our purposes fine. I replaced my phone and now its just the tablet that is next.
Now that I am able to get online again easily, I should be able to resume documenting my journey to health. It has been slow going and I have been still marred by issues with bloodpressure and migraines. I have been active, walking a minimum of 7 km every day now going on two weeks, and been doing a workout tape on the days I could. I have not been tracking still my eating as much as I should, but now that I have the gadgets back in place to do so I will, everyday, no excuses. Every thing I eat and or drink will be typed into lose it as I do it. I do best when I hold myself accountable so back to it everyday, no excuses.
The weather here has been sooooooo nice. I have taken advantage each day walking with the dog as I mentioned, and as soon as I hit publish on this post, I will be doing more of the same. It’s too nice to be inside even with a nhl playoff game kicking off at 1 pm my time in 20 min. I will see the highlights later.
My wife has been away for the weekend with her mother camping, and getting some much needed R and R. I hope she was able to relax and not worry about dishes, laundry, my health etc and get some real rest she deserves it. My health has affected her just as much as me over the last while and I hope she got the rest she deserves. She should be home any time now.
Last but certainly not least, a good friend of mine is running his first 5 km race as I type this. I am anxious to hear his account of how it went. Take a hop over to his blog and follow his journey if you haven’t already. It really is how far he’s come.
Off to enjoy the nice weather. I promise to be back to regular blogging now after months of sporadic posts. I need to be accountable to have success, and the only way I know how to do that is to write as I go. I am starting 90 days by the book of Power 90 today, the most realistic program (of the programs i enjoy doing) for my current health, and fitness level (which is awful, lol). I have been doing the workouts a few times a week for a month, but today I start everyday. I may miss a workout here and there when my health is not allowing me to workout, but on the days its possible to do it, and not just “I don’t wanna” I will be doing the workouts 6 days a week for the next 90 days.
