It is Sunday and I have homework do for class Monday night and I SHOULD be working on it. But, my life is on my mind. So I took a drive to the local park (one of many) today and wanted to scout out a walking area to reach a short term goal.
The walk path I chose is only one mile round trip. But, I have to start someplace. In my goal planning I have big dreams, Much bigger than this One mile walk but, I am also being realistic. 43 years of being morbidly obese and deadly inactive have always caused failure in the past when I dreamed big. So, this time I will take my time and for the first Two weeks I will only walk three times a week and only for a short term, perhaps 10 min and not fast either. From there I will have to evaluate my situation and how it has affected me for the good or the bad and go from there.
I know it is now or never in this change in my life. God has been so good to me by keeping major health issues away and letting me be here to plan a new way. I have seen health issues devastate families and the individual suffering and I want no part in that if I can help it, Who does right? But I understand that my lazy a$$ needs to get up and move or I will die plain and simple!
Included are some pictures of the area I will walk for my immediate short term goal and once I can do that it is on to bigger and better and more glorious things. For example, once i hit below 350 I will look to buy a bike (any info here for purchasing a bike for obese people will be appreciated). Then even down the road more (Lord willing), who knows when, It is my dream to Ride from Texas to California on a bike. Dream Big, Dream the Impossible and prepare for a fight! I know I have one hell of a battle in front of me, but I have no choice in the matter. Now is the time and all I can do is pray that the Good Lord will let me see these dreams come true. One last dream... To dance with beautiful woman who loves me. To dance and keep dancing and to know true love.
Guess time to add pictures and post then off to study!
But thank God, I am back in school!
