Today is a good birthday!
Saturday, January 29, 2011
Yes, I am posting a blog today mostly to get everyone to congratulate me of making it around the sun another time! But, it is also to note that thanks to this new low-carb way of eating I am healthier and weigh less than I have in the last ten birthdays. Figuring out that it is the carbohydrate that I eat that has sabotaged all the walking and biking that I have done in the last decade in an attempt to exercise the weight off (like worked when I was a lad) has been one of the great discoveries of the last year. Eating garbage and still losing weight worked when I was young as long as it was coupled with long bike rides. Now it clearly takes more, and that more includes avoiding rice, bread, pasta, fruit, corn and potatoes (and birthday cake?). I guess it is time to look for all those low-carb cake ideas to find something that will add a treat to this day!
I am thankful for my life, my children, my wife, my friends and my career for giving me the good life that I currently have. Here's to the next year and all the adventures it will bring.
