When I see the before me it makes me want to continue working out. I never want to see that person again. Left - 2011ish.

Did not … Continue reading What keeps me motivated.
Today starts 100 days since I have smoked a cigarette. Frankly, I am amazed that I have reached this point. I had expected a hard fight and relapse from stressful situations. Except in the beginning where I would equate certain activities with smoking, it hasn’t been that hard on me physically. It was mostly mental … Continue reading 100 Days
A Good Saturday
Saturday started like most Saturdays. This time, I actually got up and got to the gym before opening at 7. Which the nicest part is no fighting over the equipment. I was surprised it was so sparse this morning. Usually there were more people. I had to get up early this time. The scheduled oil … Continue reading A Good Saturday
I keep going
I guess I have the bug. Every morning I have to go to the gym. It’s part of my life now. I want to live an enjoyable life as healthy as I can. I doing want to ever see fat me looking back in a mirror ever again.

The nicotine gum I believe made it easier than using the patch. I guess because you are physically doing something which does something in … Continue reading Celebration!

A day of little adventure
I took today off from work. My elderly mother had an appointment with an eye specialist in Nofolk and I didn’t see the point in driving twenty miles to work for a few hours only to drive another twenty home, pick her up and put another forty some miles on top of that. I did … Continue reading A day of little adventure
Didn’t do gym this morning. An injured muscle seems to not want me to push it. So I did a little over mile walk instead. Feels like a still shot for a horror movie Was someone riding around in a SUV acting little odd in my opinion. Made me wish I was carrying. Full moon … Continue reading Good morning
