Over the hill.

Today's walk was a bit more of a challenge I walked the road beside my house which is up and down hills.

I'm proud of the fact that I walked for the third day in a row. I am well on my way to making this very heart healthy habit.

Today's walk was .7 tenths of a mile about 1400 and a 38 steps took me about 25 minutes the pace was a little slower simply because of the hills I'm guessing.

Today is gym day but there os a conflict of schedule I will not be able to go ; tonight is orientation for my daughters high school.

On another note I'm considering taking a martial art: jujitsu I am planning to go observe a class next tuesday and I'll make a final decision sometime within the next week or two.

Back at it!

Well I fell off the wagon due to a combo of laziness, depression and sickness. This literally put me in the hospital for two weeks with severe Deep Vein Thrombosis(DVT) in BOTH legs. Basically my legs had extensive blood clots that took 4 surgeries to remove.

So I am back on the wagon and back to the gym - I can not, must not, let this happen again! My goal is still to lose 50 lbs - this time by Dec. That will put me at 215lbs.
