Yesterday I signed up at the gym. It was the first day of the get real experiment for me.
I have thought alot about what it would take for me to do this again. Focus will the first hurdle. I have to not over talk this. Actions will speak far louder than words.

Now having typed all that you can get an idea of what I am doing and I won't type this stuff every day. Maybe just the leg routine and that's it all. Just know that I am tryin-hard!!
I am getting my eating under control for the most part. I have to admit that I ate too many WW wheat thins yesterday but my choices are healthy. But hey.....everything is good in the beginning.
I used to love to excerise, I loved it and I never thought I would ever get away from it. Never say never.
I had a zillion excuses, some that were real and huge, some not so much. I think I got tired of struggling, adding the hard work of excerise to my burgeoning list was too much to do.
Anyway here I go. Once I lace up my shoes I'm ready . I wonder how long till I'm back and if I can come back. I'll be 56 thursday. I'm tying Aaron for myself with your help.
Whu-who I feel sore.....
