Walk: I started today with my walk and I kept it short. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.73mi, time: 54:07, pace: 19:51min/mi, speed: 3.02mi/h.   A little stretching was added.

After that, batteries: where the next thing on my list of need to get done things. I added water as usual and look them over for any problems, all is well.

Thirdly, I fired up the Computer(laptop): and did a little catching up. You know I have not had my desktop computer turned on in almost two months now, wow. I use to have to fire it up at least once a week, or I would have withdraws! I guess I am getting more and more mobile.

The weather: needs a little attention, why you ask? Well let me tell you, it is just the best you could possibly ask for! Beautiful is an understatement, in my view it is as good as it gets! Just dandy.

Diet: I am in the battle now, I have taken the weight off and the fight is on to keep it off. As expected and as I knew this is the hard part. When all things are going at their best, diets are good but if things get out of sync a little it is when you got to look deep ….. and I am there. My knees have set the limits of how much exercise I can do. Sometimes my emotions are not in their top condition as with anybody. The big one is probably the ever-present appetite, that us folks that have that tendency to be over weight have. I have been in battle pretty heavy with this for the pass couple of months and I have lost ground to the tune of about 5 or 6 lbs, it may not sound like much but I know just how fast it can get out of hand. So as a blow from me in this battle, I put it out to the world to be seen ….. this will hold me accountable to not only myself but to others. I don’t know about you, but if I think others are watching it makes me want it more. Mind you, I have not thrown in the flag yet, but I need to find that edge again.

Folks at this point it is not about the know how or the know what …. it is 100% about the will power that lives within. I know all the tricks ….. now I must use the tools to fight the battle. I think this is a very important time in my life and if I am not going to be fat, now is the time to make that decision. May I find the higher power from within to be that skinny guy 🙂 

Night folks
