Dream Big, Dream the Impossible and prepare for a fight!

Sunday, November 04, 2012

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! emoticon But thank God, I am back in school! emoticon

    That looks like a lovely place to walk. I think you're making good plans. It is good to recognize our limitations while we are planning to remove them. God bless you. emoticon

    Hang in there. BTW, Houston has a wealth of bike riding options for you. I go to Katy once yearly to do a ride that attracts over 1,000 cyclists. You may want to visit a bike shop and find out what bikes are good for you. Good luck!!

I agree with recumbent bikes .... I wish that I had invested in one myself .... I am so so short and after joining the Y and riding them, made it much easier on my big ole behind !!

    I would suggest buying a recumbent bike. If you google recumbent bike for the road, several sites will appear. I think it will hold your weight now and you can take it on the mile long path at your park. Good luck with your goals!
