Today is the day that I start a new pathway, a new journey toward health and wellness. A journey that I started many years ago but never finished. I have been waiting day in and day out to find the right time to start “getting healthy” “eating better” and always thought it had to be perfect in order for it to get started the “right way”. I think we all do this to a certain extent, telling our selfs, “oh I will start tomorrow” or “today is too stressful, let me wait until…. this is over”. Well the truth is no day is perfect and there is no better time to start then now, however we know this, and always have. What I learned is that I had to get serious enough and to be quite honest angry enough to take a stand, that is when I said “NO MORE, I AM DONE” I am literally killing myself with food and bad habits. I am not living, but simply existing.
The sad part is I knew this every day and kept telling myself, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. Well then I think something, internally woke up. I am not sure what it was but between June 16th and today, fathers day, a spark ignited and all my dreams and goals appeared in front of me and I thought. If I do nothing else why not document them, if no one sees my posts, reads my website, or listens to my podcast journey well I would not have lost anything. Because in the end, I would be fitter, happier, and heather making MYSELF better than I was before!
This website is my personal journal and journey to be a better ME, so that I can be a better, Father, Husband, Leader and just darn happier!
I hope that along the way I can help myself, but I know I am not the only one out there and if I can help you along the way, well lets help one person at a time. One step at a time.
It will not be easy, but I have a plan and if I stick to the plan, I know it can be accomplished.
Lets get this party started!
The Journey has begun physically and mentally, however with a holiday like Father’s Day it is filled with family events, and of course Restaurants with fatty, delicious food that is portioned for a rhino. I will confess that I ate at my favorite place, well it is my day right, right…..????. Chinese Buffett, but I did keep it clean with vegetables and lean meat. Hey its better than fast food!
I started by running 1 mile today, 12:01 was my time had to stop three times to walk and started wee-zing for the first time ever in my life, I know it is working if it hurts right?
