Starting Over

My name is Bill. I regained a lot of weight during the past six months taking care of my wife. Now that my beautiful wife has passed away after a 4-year battle with Amyloidosis, it is time to start taking care of myself. It may be difficult at first because of the grief, but I have to do it!

While I didn't do well with the last 2 challenges, I'm determined to do better on the Summer Challenge. My Goal: I want to drop 11 pounds (5% of my weight) by the end of the challenge. ...

SparkPoints: 83,509

Fitness Minutes: 74,665

My Goals:
I want to get to 180 lbs by March 2105. While I can't run very much due to tendon damage after a broken leg, I want to get back in the habit of exercising daily.

My Program:
Eat healthy, watch the portion sizes, and exercise frequently. This formula always works, but it's easier said than done! I've got to find a way to make them habits instead of things that I HAVE to do.

Personal Information:
I live in San Antonio, Texas - an absolutely great place! (except perhaps in July and August...)

Other Information:
I grew up in Texas, but spent 26 years in the Air Force. After retiring from the Air Force, I worked another 15 years at Brooks AFB, TX as a contractor. I love outdoor activities of all types. I'm currently finishing a vacation cabin at some acreage I have near Rocksprings, TX. This was our "get-away" spot where my wife and I could really enjoy nature.

I didn't know your latest hiking adventure was starting so soon. Enjoy yourself and come back lighter happier and more accomplished than when you left.

emoticon Just stopping by with Friday's food for thought by Carl Jung:

"We cannot change anything unless we accept it."

So, my wish for you is that you accept what your goals are so that you can change them and achieve them. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Have a Fabulously Fit Friday! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the comment! I know that the young lady was being polite and encouraging, but the way she said it... I remember being a young cadet and the majors and lieutenant colonels seemed so old. Well, I guess that is me now! I don't have to act it though, and when I am not injured or recovering, they will just have to try to keep up!

emoticon and good morning. Happy Thursday. I am stopping by with my quote for today by Henry Ward Beecher:

“The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order.”

So, here's wishing you a day filled with healthy choices which will keep your body in good order and your life filled with happiness! Have a Terrific Thursday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
