A New Routine

Here we go again. I woke up this morning and decided that tonight is the night to begin an exercise routine. I will exercise every single night until our vacation at the end of September.

I know that most of you are thinking, “Sure George, we’ll believe it when we see (read) it!” And I do not blame you one bit. I am constantly bitching and complaining about my weight and my self esteem and I know that if I exercised regularly then those two would not be as much of an issue. I also know that I am a routine kind of a guy. I do not do spontaneous or sporadic well. If I don’t have a routine then I will not do it. That I do know.

So tonight will be the beginning of a new routine. I have to do it. I keep thinking about my father and how young he was when he had his first and last heart attack and I do not want to carry on that tradition.

The next few days will be nothing more then a few words about the workout the night before so I can stay accountable. Not that I think my blog is that great of a read but it is going to be pretty short and boring for a while unless something really interesting happens which I am kind of hoping will not!

On a side note, I signed up for a Blog Talk account after reading Kerri’s post about it. Kind of cool but I am not quite sure what to do subject wise if anything at all. I have been working on a Podcast with a friend of mine and that was going to be my broadcasting focus but this new medium seems interesting to me. More later on that topic.

16 months ago, when I broke my ankle, I gained 2ggxeirav7 pounds. Yikes, and most of it hasn't moved away yet. The FOOD THING is so damn complex, yet so simple (I guess). My most recent therapist said "change one thing", which it sounds like you're gonna do.
Good luck!

Good luck with your exercise routine. I know you can do it. I started on Feb 23rd and have now been exercising consistantly for 159 days. Ok, I did miss one day, but that was on the super busy 3rd of July and I did alot of work that day even if it wasn't formal exercise.

Just take it one day at a time and don't go to bed until you've done it. It won't always be easy but stay strong and persevere... you'll be so glad you did.

Good Luck! I generally don't like routine, but with excericise I have to "hide" it in there somewhere. It has been 4 months now, and I have consistently visited the dreaded gym! If I can do it - so can you!

You can do it man! Like Keith said - just don't go to bed until you've done it.

And BTW - the new picture is a classic! Hiya!
