Walking to Yogurtland

Kim and I left the house a little after 10Pm and walked to Yogurtland and back. It was a great walk together. I, sadly, feel it in my legs today. Sadly because it is so sad that exercise is walking. I guess that is what happens when you get old. It was a 5 mile walk and took us a little less than 2 hours. So we got home around midnight. Not bad, a walk to yogurtland, a little treat, and time spent together. I loved it.

How Should I work out?

I want to be in better shape. And I mean shape. I am quite round. I know that I need to lose weight. When I weighed myself this morning I weighed in at 202. That is down from the 207 that I saw a few weeks ago.

The Enemy

Of course I know that weight has everything to do with eating.

The True Enemy

Here Miranda is making chocolate cookies which is a real weakness of mine. I think the other big weakness is english muffins. I probably had 3 or 4 today. I have no self control!

I tried jumping rope and my old rock climbing injury flaired up so i don’t know what I am going to do. I was a little stressed about the news my boss gave me this morning. So of course I had to have 3 english muffins with butter and jam. I have to do something. Or just get fatter and die earlier. No I think I like the first thing.

Blood Preasure Preasure

I have been avoiding measuring my blood preasure. I used to jump on the machines at the grocery store whenever I was there. I had decided that I was not going to be worried about fitness. I don’t know I guess I just thought that my marathon dreams were over. I did revive them for a little bit when I tried to engage McKala in doing a triathlon. The real goal was to try and help McKala get healthy. That kind of blew up when she decided she had enough of that. I did notice my shape was not what I would like it to be. That belly was just getting too big. So I started weighing myself. Yikes 207! So I thought I would just watch my eating. I dropped down to 202 and stayed there and I lost interest again. Then at the grocery store I thought I would just check it out. Ouch it was high. It is time to start thinking about being fit again. I am not sure what that means, but I know I need to lose weight and hope the blood preasure takes care of itself. I may take a break during work and take a jog around the block. That is one advantage of working at home. It is all about the eating. I really believe that. I love to eat. I love to eat a lot. It is hard for me to get excited about working out without a goal to reach. I did find a jump rope in our move. Maybe I will check that out. I am worried about my right calf. I injured it rock climbing several years ago and whenever I have started working out it is the first pain point. It gets increasingly painful until I can’t hardly walk. It is like a bad cramp. I have seen a doctor and even gone through physical therapy obviously neither has solved the problem.
