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: 100,110

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.

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."

Have a fantastic week living in the present moment! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Googled.... The domesticated banana can only be propagated by man!

Trivia Proofing

#379: “The banana cannot reproduce itself. It can be propagated only by the hand of man. Further, the banana is not a tree, it is a herb, the largest known of all plants without a woody stem or solid trunk.”

Inaccurate.

The domesticated banana can now only continue with human help. Since the domesticated banana plant now works by asexual reproduction, people have to help it produce more seeds. Wild bananas originally had larger seeds, but since people produced it to have smaller seeds so it would be better for consumption, it now has smaller seeds. Those smaller seeds make it harder for the banana plant to reproduce itself.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my Colorado blog. I forgot that you travel a lot. I think Colorado is one of the most beautiful states. There are many other beautiful states but I guess I'm partial to Colorado. emoticon
