11 December 2016 - Coffee Time

It has been quite a while since I've posted anything to my blog.  I woke up this morning with a thought: what am I doing to make an impact on the world and to live life to its fullest?

While work has been extremely busy and does not leave much time for friends, family, or myself, I think I owe it to myself to pause each day and think a little bit about personal issues.  And so, my Pre-New-Year's New Year's resolution is to spend just 5-10 minutes per day jotting a short note about anything on my mind so that my slow journey is reflected here on the blog.  Effectively, I promise myself to make time for coffee...and for a post.  So here goes...

I know that I have completely fallen off of the diet wagon and I know that I owe myself something better so that is where I will start with these posts.  Earlier this year, I had a goal of 160 lbs. by Christmas - I've completely given up on that by now; I didn't have the drive or willpower needed to get there.  From a starting point of just under 200 lbs. in June, I made it to 187.2 lbs on November 4, 2016 and my weight has steadily increased since then and my most recent measurement was 195.9 lbs., which is only 3.4 lbs. under what I was on June 18, 2016 when I started my most recent attempt to pay attention to fitness.  The weight gain needs to stop...now.

It is time.  It is time for the gut to go.  I cannot dress the way I would like with the gut hanging out.  I need to refocus and get myself moving back down the weight ladder.  I am making that commitment to myself today and it starts this morning.

Anyway, enough abusive self-talk, I need to get back to the grind and, later today, if I have time, I will update this blog post with a breakfast plan for the new me.
