Sometimes...I like to just stop....sit....think about what it's all about. Here's what I pondered upon.

I started this blog over three years ago. At the time, I had passed my 50th birthday and was profoundly unhappy with the shape my body had taken over the last few years. I was very overweight and out of shape. I did not do any real activity. I ate all the wrong type of foods to excess. I smoked. I was a wreck. I felt sick all the time. I was dying...faster than I realized.

Since that time, though I've never reached the stated goal of this blog title through starting and stopping countless times, I've passed that uncomfortable point of awareness about my own health. I know I have to exercise. I know I have to watch what I eat. I know what the consequences are of not taking care of myself. I can't go back to that blissful ignorance and rationalization that I can always take care of things tomorrow.

Except...I will take care of things....tomorrow.

The body I want, the health I crave, the life I need....all start on Monday. Things will never be the same.

and neither will I

But you DO deserve a lot of recognition for all your effort. Some people never even try. And you've tried many times and still haven't completely given up!
