This is my journal. I have worked out that there are 13 things I want track. I like the number 13. I would have preferred 42, but 13 is already an oxymoron when it comes to focus. I had stepped away from using this as I explored other options. I looked at an online LDS Journal. It was OK. I was using the study notebook on LDS.org and was excited about it, but now I am returning to this format.

2 Being Fit I was going to just let this go. I am not a young man anymore. However I know that I should not be as unhealthy as I am. My goal is not to climb Half Dome or run a marathon. I want to be fit. Starting with my weight and then my blood pressure. Then I can think beyond those simple measurements. I am trying a new thing, ADF. That is alternate day fasting. Simply I eat every other day. I am not 100% dedicated. I will start measurements when we get back to AZ July 16th 2011 Current Weight 194
