- First and foremost, I’ve started exercising. 2-3 times a week, trying to work up to 1-2 hours during my sessions. At the beginning of last year, my company had a ‘biggest loser’ weight loss competition. I started out at 215, and dropped about 5 pounds over 2 months. Unfortunately, I gained 20 over the course of a year. Not good, not good at all. My goal is to drop to 200 lbs or less. My initial goal is to try to loose a pound or two a week, and keep sustaining that rate. I’ve made it 4 weeks, and I’m beginning to notice that I can push myself a LOT in my workouts now… I’m keeping my fingers crossed…
- Second, I’m doing another form of exercise, I’m playing guitar. I try to put at least a half hour of practice in every night, longer when I don’t work out at the gym, and longer still on the weekends. I’m going to play classical guitar for one of my friend’s wedding, and I *certainly* don’t want to screw it up.
- Third, I’ve started going to concerts again. I have a friend who *loves* going to concerts, and I find that I’m enjoying seeing bands play again. This sorta ties into point #2.
- Finally, I’m really focused on work. One of the things that exercise does is it makes the brain sharper (contrary to all the muscle head stereo types). I’ve used that focus to help get my work in order and get more done in a day. I’m also a LOT less tired now that I’m working out
Well, life has been busy, and it will continue to get busier. I’ll write more as things change.
