Back again and with a vengeance.
I have managed to surprise and impress even myself since July 1st.
I have not lost as much weight as I had planned but I have accomplished a great deal more than expected.
I have succeeded in working out daily for the last 6 weeks. Mostly walking but I am routinely walking 3 miles a day, with the occasional 4 to 5 miles.
It has become both a compulsion and a need. I don't feel right if I don't walk daily.
The results are lower blood sugar, higher energy levels and I am fitting into clothes I was on the verge of throwing away. If I had, I would have had to go out and buy new ones. And money is on the short side.
I am on Sparks daily reading and tracking my progress. My life style is changing and so is my out look on the future.
Thanks for the encouragement.

My Goals:
My goals are shifting as I learn more of what I can and can't do.
The ultimate goal is to be at 200 lbs by July 2014. I retire in 2018..
Sell the homestead and RV for a year or so and enjoy the USA.
Look for a new home and begin a new life.


My Program:
My program is to continue the changes I have made to my diet and the exercise I do everyday and to understand that some days you just have to kick back and let your body enjoy being you.



Personal Information:
I sometimes feel like that Frank Sinatra song
where he sings the different things that he has been.
My students think I have done everything and been everywhere.
I wish...
However as I get older I appreciate the diversity of jobs I done and the occupations I have performed.
Retirement is the new focus and I am looking forward to a whole new world in which to experience life.


Other Information:
Humor:
the essence of life and one of the best gifts of God.
Reading:
experiencing the thoughts of others.
Writing:
expressing a story that others would enjoy and relate to.
Marriage:
the link to the outside world

    Hi Dad.

    Just checking in to see how you're doing. I just finished doing rhythm boxing on the wii. Got my fingers played off last night. We're doing the musical Annie this summer and the only places that I had any rests to recover from the constant playing on are the parts that they've cut out. 4 hours of non stop playing. Phew I'm surprised I could still play for my lesson today. Anyway, hope you're doing well. Hugs,
