Starting Over

Lights, camera, ACTION!

Today is not yesterday, and not quite tomorrow.  It is here right now.  You and I have the opportunity to initiate some action today, whether its planning or doing, that can have a tangible effect our lives.

If you already have a great plan and just want to continue it, then by all means do.  But if you have stumbled or dropped  the ball on some plan, or maybe just want to get something new going, then today might just be the best time to start it up.

This could be a turning point!

About a year ago, I reached a turning point.  My weight was starting to creep up and I had gone from about 180 lbs around December, to about 210 lbs come May of 2011.  I could blame it on several things, but the point is I realized one of two things was going to happen.  Either I could continue to grow plumper, or I could do something about it.  I chose to do something about it, and now 15 months later, not only am I about 180 lbs again, but I just competed in and finished an Olympic length Triathlon!

That’s right, a 1500 meter (1 mile) swim, a 25 mile bike ride, and a 10k (6.2 mile) run, all back to back.

I have learned so much about health and fitness in this time period that I thought it prudent to share my insights with my Start Of  A New Day readers.  So in the upcoming days, I shall be posting what I know, for what its worth, for all you great readers to consume.
