Sorry I have been away so long… a huge blog faux pas I am told. Please cut me some slack – I’m new at this thing.
It’s been an interesting time since I last posted an entry. I have been to Oregon in that time. While away I gained just over 1 pound. So that was a victory in my books. I went to visit my Dad and his wife (they live in Portland). Although they have been married less than 20 years, I have been going to that house since I was a little kid. So there are alot of behaviours and habits associated with my frequent trips to Portland. One thing about the house… there is candy everywhere (practically). Dad’s wife has a bit of a sweet tooth, so naturally I have always been drawn to the candy dishes. This time was no exception – well I guess a little bit of an exception – I did partake, but with MUCH LESS regularity. Maybe it’s not a huge victory… maybe a draw?
There are lots of other stories I could tell some victories, so not so much, but I was happy with the net result after 6 days on the road as a +1 pound.
I have also been spending my brain power on drilling down to the core of the purpose for this blog and how this journey I am on will fit into my business life.
I am starting to think of the “end” – what my life will look like when this reduction in weight is accomplished. Where will I go from there? How will this even be relevant?
I think I have it largely figured out.
I have made some pretty serious goals for the future. I am not yet ready to share them here… but you know I will eventually (and probably sooner than later). The announcements will inspire lots of questions I’m sure; maybe a few giggles when some of you say “Really?” But suffice it to say, it will be worth watching!
One final note – I finally have a family doctor (first time since about 1989) and so I went in for some tests, just to see how badly my lifestyle has damaged my body systems. I know that since I started my nutritional supplements in August of 2008 I have been feeling better and better and better on the inside. But the numbers won’t lie.
I am waiting on the final word on the blood tests (results on April 11th) and for a call from the Cardiologist regartding my stress test (if the call doesn’t come that’s a good thing).
But one snippet for now. March 23rd blood pressure: 110 over 70. The actual quote from Dr. Jeff: “Excellent!” Let’s hope we hear that word again on the 11th
