After a month of “drifting along”, I am now mentally focused and prepared to move forward. I was sick for the better part of three weeks and was unable to get much (if any) real exercise. Now, I’m back, baby! I started my day with plenty of water, some hardy oatmeal, and a nice turkey sandwich. I’ll be going to the gym around 3PM and I am (get ready…) excited! My weight sits at 230, right where I left it three weeks ago. Hopefully, the “shock” of exercise will cause my body to “release” a few extra pounds. Clearly, January was a great month. I hope to “recapture” the magic and start to lose weight again.
