Yesterday was a great day. I got up very early and walked over five miles. At the end of the day I had over seven miles. I kept my calories down and everything is going well.
Today has been a bit crazy due to my father-in-law’s house going up for sale. So many little things to take care of. In the past I would have been so busy that I would have abandoned my plan, come home and ordered a large pizza. Back then I was on the Whole Foods diet. A whole pizza, whole chicken, etc. That was my old life.
Got a new app for the iPhone. I’ve been using Fatwatch and like it because it uses a moving average for the graphs but it isn’t being updated so I switched over to Monitor Your Weight . It does everything that Fatwatch did and a lot more. Here is a screenshot.
Notice it says Obese Class III? Ouch!!! Good thing I’m doing something about this before something serious happens. I have been deceiving myself for too long. I can walk five miles at a brisk pace non-stop, it fooled me. No more.
I started doing Tai Chi for flexibility. I studied Tang Soo Do when I was in my twenties but at this age I want a more internal style. I found The Great Courses lesson on it and I’ll be doing that daily.
I plan to start doing light weight training soon but want to be smart. The last thing I want to do is injure myself. I’ll do the research and start slowly. I have all the equiptment, all I need now is the knowledge.
