I was felled by a twinkie

I have a new obsession. It is getting healthy. I've been using the Wii Fit Plus and a website http://www.sparkpeople.com to improve my fitness, nutrition and overall well-being.  The results have been great so far.

– no soda/pop since May (with the occasional ginger ale if my stomach is icky)

– I've lost 29 pounds

– I've consistently exercised 3-4 times per week and have graduated to a new Wii program, EA Sports Active that is REALLY HARD

– I have been very good about drinking 8 glasses of water a day

– I have faced down all sorts of temptations and managed pretty well.  Except for the twinkie, but I got right back on the horse. 

Change is difficult, but so rewarding.  Change also means sacrifices of time.  Hence, the lack of blogging.  Well, that's only partially true.  Yes, I have less time, but I have also enjoyed the break.  It has been like a mental health release to not be locked into a singular identity for a few months.  I admit that I created my own situation and I'm really proud of what we've accomplished, but this blog has taken a hard turn toward all politics, all the time which isn't a real reflection of who I am.

I'm certainly not going to stop blogging, but I am going to blog differently. I guess you'll have to tune in to see what that means. 

Now I'm off to read a book and relax before bed. I have to prepare myself to ache tomorrow when today's new workout kicks in.  Ouch.
