Me...JK. A good friend of mine nicknamed me Fozz many moons ago, and it stuck
My cousin, Dustin and I, Brooklyn, NY '09
There is the life you'd like to live... Then there's the life that ends up getting lived. My life, for many, many years has been overshadowed by my growing weight, affecting my emotional well being, energy levels, and the drive to accomplish. I've sat on the sidelines watching this beautiful life God has blessed me with, squandering it. I've never gone on a diet, because I knew I would fail. Many things in life, not accomplished due to fear of failure. Well, passivity has put me smack dab in the middle of a Fail, and it's time to reverse course, all hands on deck, reverse thrusters, launch the torpedoes and declare a full scale war on apathy, fear of failure, and unhealthy lifestyle and choices. The last couple weeks I've been radically changing my whole outlook on food. I don't want to diet! I want to create a healthy lifestyle where good whole foods are a big part of it. Whether it be juicing, salads, simple portion control, or just no fast food, I want to ingrain new habits to live by, not to diet by.
Spend more quality time with family.
Cherish the moments that make life's great memories.
-I'm a Vitamix blender mad man! Gotta have my fruit/veggie smoothies!
-Portion Control, dear me oh my, portion control! Listen to my stomach, stop when I'm full... Duh!
-Work out at 24hr gym after work, which consists of
20 min cardio (treadmill/ellitptical/bike)
and alternate upper/lower weight lift.
'bout 45-60min total, 3 to 5 X's/week.
(I'm a newbie at the gym, so may get trainer)
Love books, reading them and audiobooks
-Kraken, Embassytown by China Mieville
-Time Traveler's Wife
-Hunger Games trilogy
-Justin Cronin's Passage, also the Twelve
-Devil In The White City, Erik Larson
-Arkady Renko series by Martin Cruz Smith.

Hey Josh! Thanks for your comment on my page. That treadmill 'how not to' was hilarious!! I still haven't gotten up the nerve to do anything other than walk briskly. Maybe this week. Maybe not. I still get on the elliptical for about 30 mins after, so I don't want to completely wear myself out.
And once I get started, how the *bleep* am I supposed to stop?? LoL Maybe I'll just stop, drop and get thrown behind and make a cameo in the next installment of 'World's Worst Treadmill Attempters'. That could be my legacy! Watch out, People of Walmart, this gal's going places!!
Have a great week in Prescott!! :)

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog of 2/9 - Douglas Adams.... is there a Douglas Adams fan out there who doesn't sigh and look wistful? Just one more book? And another? Forever?
Your comments are much appreciated and I'm glad you enjoyed reading what I wrote. Some days come together... some days.... eh. It's amazing to me that with the enormous amount of web content out there that mine would find its way to a few people who like it. Very gratifying. Thanks for your thoughtfulness!
