Color book

Howdy from the land of fleas and fire ants!

Man all of God's creatures love the rain! These spring showers we have been getting are really doing wonders for the flea and fire ant crops. I guess Grandpa was right when he said it rains on the deserving and the un-deserving alike.

In reading the other night , a character in the book said school can just give one so much education. The rest we have to go get ourselves.He said life only gives us the color book, we have to find the right colors and try in stay within the lines.

The final product in our color book comes from our experimentation.I suppose a lot of things in this old world are like that color book.I know I have experimented quite a good bit with my journey and have found somethings that worked well and some, well, not so well.I have even gotten out of the lines a few times.

My practice sessions at the Healthplex are going great.My thighs stay a little sore and that is good. About the time they feel comfortable I increase they weight and times so they get a little uncomfortable again.This is the fifth week and I have increased the weights 40%.

I'll turn another page in the color book this month and see if I can keep the colors inside the lines.

See ya down the road.

Mind games

Howdy from the land of cloudy skies and hunting hawks!

Damn co-workers brought cookies and cheese cake to work today.The cheese cake is sitting right out in the open on a table I got to walk by when I leave my office. Good thing it does not smell because just looking at it makes me drool like a 12 week old pup looking at a chicken leg!

But alas, it is all in my mind! I guess it is better to have it on my mind than in my belly.

One good choice a day is great.Having to make a good choice every time I get up sucks!

Taking a dunk

Howdy from the land of new tastes and new practices!

The last couple of weeks has been a little adventuresome for the Old Cowboy. To say I don't relish change is an understatement.

But I am trying a FEW new things. Now my squeeze Janet eats yogurt, but I have never tired it.Nope, I just rather not eat anything if I can't eat ice cream. I decided I would try it after reading a little about it on Fatfightertv.com. Guess what? It ain't bad. In fact it was a good supper Friday night. I took the Greek Yogurt,mixed in 2 scoops of protein powder, couple scoops of coconut and pecans and BAM ! that was supper and I felt pretty satisfied.I was however, ready for my bacon and eggs in the morning.

I also added swimming for about 20 minutes Friday morning along with my regular practice session.I like to swim but I am not in real good shape to swim alot. I did manage to get in 5 laps at the Healthplex pool. It felt good and I think I will try to add that each time I go this month.

All in all, I am moving in the right direction and feel I will increase my calorie consumption as my leg strength increases.

Come join me , eat less, move more , never forget---A MER I CAN
