I am very grateful to all of you (and also to those who have been e-mailing me)! The responses have been informative and encouraging. I am taking it all in like that dog in the old RCA ads...
Today, I'll work, then the family and I are away for a few days. I will use this time to let the comments settle in, develop a simple plan and move forward. While on the trip, I'll do my best to make good decisions.
The essence of the plan will be two-fold:
- It's time to do something about my food intake. I hoped that the cycling alone would do it. It doesn't. I need to be aggressive about less calories, better food and more water. Message received.
- The second major element is to move each day, mostly cardio, but some weights as well. Whether cycling, walking, steps, or hiking...it won't matter, as long as I'm moving daily. My new goals should reflect that.
I am blessed to have such great support from all of you and my family. Thank you.
