When did this happen? I suddenly am tipping the bathroom scale at 171 pounds, I get winded going up one flight of stairs, am struggling to fit into my 32-waist pants, and I’m on the last hole on my belt (I had been at the 3rd hole). I still don’t sleep as well as I’d like, I’m not writing, I’m not making and selling salsa, and my car is messy. My carpel tunnel is really bad in my right hand, probably because of my new laptop and the touch-pad mouse.
I gotta get right. I gotta get up early and get walking and then migrating that into true, heart-pumping, muscle-building exercise.
I gotta stop eating after dinner. Hell, I am so determined sometimes to stay-awake, eating is really just the tool I use to keep myself awake. I’m proud to say I’ve never fallen asleep while chewing. Big accomplishment, right?
I’m going to use a mouse when using my laptop, and use it with my left hand.
I’m going to stop “sneaking” off for fast-food at lunch and stop justifying it by calling it “carb loading” for a workout I don’t ever get to.
I’m going to drink more water.
I’m going to plan my meals and make sure they’re rich on protein and leafy greens, and less filled with carbohydrates.
It’s back-to-school season. It’s as good a time as any to turn over a new leaf.
I’m going to blog everyday because (a) I enjoy it and (b) I’m an egomaniac who thrives off people reading the things I write and having them say “well said” or “great post” or “very funny.”
I don’t know how I’m going to do it, but I’m going to do it.
I’m going to say interesting things on YouTube, too …to go with my blog.
I’m going to research HGH (Human Growth Hormone) and if it’s not illegal or it doesn’t have adverse health effects, I’m going to look into it.
And how do I figure out what my “percent body fat” is? Because if I can lose weight (get myself to 155 in a healthy way and tone my muscles), I’m going to buy a new, hipster suit.
OK. There’s more on my list, but even as public as I am about things, there’s a few things on the list I won’t write about here on the blog. But there’s more.
Ready. Set. Go.
