Almost two years ago, I stopped smoking.
Over the last year and a half, I made adjustments to my diet, eating a bit healthier by consuming more fruits and vegetables, and cooking/eating more at home and visiting fast-food restaurants less often.
The results so far have been positive:
• Better wind/endurance. This is particularly evident on the golf course and when I have to lug two giant duffle bags loaded with laundry up two flights of stairs.
• The loss of several inches. I'm down two clothing sizes in both shirts and pants.
The next stage was supposed to have been getting a dog so I would walk it on a regular basis, upping my cardio activity.
But since I'm no longer sure exactly how long I will be here, the dog thing isn't yet viable.
So I need to do something.
I'm currently looking at a couple gyms to see if there's a program/training regimen that will suit me. I don't want to get all fanatical and crazy about it at first. I want to start relatively slow and then work my way up in terms of intensity. I'm hoping to find something that combines weight training with whatever other regimen there is.
There are two gyms relatively close to where I live. I'm hoping either might have something that works for me, preferably that I can go to after work. I don't think planning a regimen that requires me waking up early will work out too well. LOL
I'll keep ya'll posted ... because I know just how FASCINATING this is to all of you.
Well, at least your eyes won't glaze over like they do in my golf posts.
