Starting Over

My name is Bill. I regained a lot of weight during the past six months taking care of my wife. Now that my beautiful wife has passed away after a 4-year battle with Amyloidosis, it is time to start taking care of myself. It may be difficult at first because of the grief, but I have to do it!

While I didn't do well with the last 2 challenges, I'm determined to do better on the Summer Challenge. My Goal: I want to drop 11 pounds (5% of my weight) by the end of the challenge. ...

Fitness Minutes: 68,420

My Goals:
I want to get to 180 lbs by March 2105. While I can't run very much due to tendon damage after a broken leg, I want to get back in the habit of exercising daily.

My Program:
Eat healthy, watch the portion sizes, and exercise frequently. This formula always works, but it's easier said than done! I've got to find a way to make them habits instead of things that I HAVE to do.

Personal Information:
I live in San Antonio, Texas - an absolutely great place! (except perhaps in July and August...)

Other Information:
I grew up in Texas, but spent 26 years in the Air Force. After retiring from the Air Force, I worked another 15 years at Brooks AFB, TX as a contractor. I love outdoor activities of all types. I'm currently finishing a vacation cabin at some acreage I have near Rocksprings, TX. This was our "get-away" spot where my wife and I could really enjoy nature.

emoticon emoticon emoticon I am sure your experience in the Adventure Club is emoticon So happy to that you are enjoying it so much! My quote for you for today is by C.S. Lewis:

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."

This is something I find true for me and I am trying to overcome it so that I can achieve my dreams. Have a Marvelous Monday! emoticon emoticon

emoticon Today's quote is by C. JoyBell C.:

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

So, our challenge this week is to do it and throw ourselves into the open so we can grow and live our healthier new lifestyle and enjoy the ride! Have a fantabulous new week! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

No time for a nap...Have to volunteer today from noon to 4, come home and do dinner and then babysit as kids are going out for their anniversary. Also, my son will be here all weekend starting at 5 with his 2...4 grandkids and 4 dogs as have an extra dog for the weekend. Good thing I had that 15 day vacation. "Calgone, take me away!" Remember that commercial? LOL. I am not complaining at all as I am very blessed. Just want some sleep. Have a great weekend Bill.

Good morning and Happy Hump Day! Thanks for stopping by. I think the worst part of losing my diamond was the fact that technically I am not married, but I just was not ready to take off my ring. I am very thankful that I am able to get it redone for a reasonable price.

Today's quote is by Les Brown:

“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”

Too many people like to blame someone else for everything so I find this a good quote to remind us that it is us who is responsible for how our life goes. Have a Happy Hump Day and a Wonderful Wednesday making the choices you need to achieve your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
