Hello Again

Life has really gone strange lately, hasn't it?

Everything has been off the rails with this whole pandemic.

Work has gotten crazy busy.

Stress has gone through the roof.

Eating habits have been awful.

I took a long, hard look in the mirror and didn't like what I saw.  I mean, sexy with that beard but the weight I have put on and the lack of discipline has been awful.  I decided I needed to get back to controlling the things I need to control.

Today I officially finished Day 3 of hitting the elliptical.  I also completed my second fast in a row.  Both of these things are key to me losing weight again and getting into better shape.

I am starting out slow with 16 hour fasts and 10 minutes on the elliptical.  I have decided that my week will follow what Fitbit considers a week and that is Monday through Sunday.

So with that, week 1 is in the books even though it was only 3 days long for me.

Day 1: 10 Minutes on the Elliptical and 1.164 miles.
Day 2: 10 Minutes on the Elliptical and 1.236 miles.
Day 3: 12 Minutes on the Elliptical and 1.516 miles.

10 minutes is really kicking my butt because I am not used to it.  With that in mind I'm going to start doing little things to push myself just a little bit further and further as time goes on.

Today, for instance, I was on a good pace and decided I wanted to hit 1.5 miles.  So, I went for an extra 2 minutes and felt good about it afterwards.  Sweat pouring down my bald head.  Lungs heaving for air.  I felt good.

This next week I want to make sure that I get 10 miles in on the elliptical.  I plan on using it for a minimum of 10 minutes each day.
I also want to hit my 16 hour fasting goal at least 5 out of the 7 days.

Baby steps to get back on track.

I can do this.

I will do this.

Thank you all for coming along on this journey with me
