It is time to re-focus on my weight and get down to 275 by March 31st. What's my starting point?
So, tomorrow, I'll lumber onto the scales, set some weekly goals and get after it. I have no concerns about hitting my goal on March 31st.
And yet, I fear that you will be disappointed in my gains and I fully understand. After 44 years of poor eating habits, I see that when I take my eye off the ball, I fall back into old eating habits quickly.
You may recall when I wrote about this stating that my autopilot switch is broken. Time to put my hands on the controls again and fly the plane on a steady course.
Thanks for your comments about my friend's family. Death is tragic, but this father-son story has just left me a bit numb and caused me to just want to focus on family (when not busy with work).
My two boys have been running together (on a challenge) every day this week, just a half-mile. Sunday, we will likely jump it up to a two-mile run with several walk-breaks for them. They seem to like the running, but are treating their small loop like a sprint. I want them to get used to longer distances, so that we can do some upcoming 5k's together, where they can not only keep up with me, but even challenge me!
Hug your loved ones, my friends.
