Starting Over

My name is Bill. I gained a lot of weight over the past several years taking care of my beautiful wife. Now that she has passed away after a 4-year battle with Amyloidosis, it is time to start taking care of myself. The first year had mixed results, but I'm determined to turn this around. The activity isn't the problem - it's the healthy eating. I will do this, though!

I'm taking part in the Spring 5% Challenge. My goal is to lose 11 pounds during the challenge.

Fitness Minutes: 99,990

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

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 especially like hiking vacations. My son and my 7-year old grandson went with me on a 20-mile hike in the mountains of Wyoming last year.

emoticon emoticon Just stopping by to share today's motivational quote by Audrey Hepburn:

"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."

So my challenge for you is to use your hands wisely helping both yourself and others! Make this week emoticon by being helpful! emoticon emoticon because you are AMAZING! emoticon emoticon

Holy mackerel! I cannot fathom that heat even at hottest time of day. We suffer mightily when it's 85. You, sir, are one determined leader to not cancel that hike & head for a cool river instead!

It obviously keeps you in good health and enjoying life...that's awesome.

Bill - I knew you, out of anyone, would relate to the pocket knife! My Dad and brother always carried one in their pockets. Now my brother carries my Dad's. Thanks for reading the blog!
