Charley's Health Adventure

2008 thru 2013 didn't work, but I was resistant to take advice. I thought I had good reasons to be the exception to the rules. But it hasn't worked. So, 2014, I'm ready to listen to sound advice and give it a try, at least.

My Goals:
I'm going to take this year to get fit, at first by losing weight, especially fat. I'm also trying to learn to read Japanese.

My Program:
Due to my T2 diabetes, I have to modify the diet to restrict the number of carbs (especially fast carbs like sugar, bread and potatoes). I really need to exercize, so for the most part I'm doing "couch to 5 K".

Personal Information:
A Navy-brat from everywhere, but with a passionate love of Japan (where I went to High School). Now living in Georgia, working as a computer software project manager. My sweetheart is studying for her PhD in math ed.

Other Information:
That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing has changed, but that our capacity to do has increased.

Hey Brother Garrett! How are you doing lately? Just stopped by to try to keep you motivated. I recently had a really bad week, and that has inspired me to check up on all my friends and see if they need any encouragement.

I know it gets annoying tracking every little detail of what you eat and how you exercise, but it's good to be kept accountable for your actions, plus it makes you more mindful of portions as you're eating.

Also, the worst part about working out is actually GETTING to the gym. Once you're there it's only a small step to actually start working out. It's always getting ready and actually leaving the house that makes me not want to go. So if you can just get yourself there, I know you'll do well.

Good luck! I hope you start tracking again soon!
