Gotta Start Somewhere!!

I'm just trying to get a handle on this blogging thing the young 'uns are doing. After chatting with the "perfect child" over the weekend, we decided that blogging about our efforts to start and maintain a healthier lifestyle might keep us both on the right path. We came to this conclusion after eating and drinking Phoenix, AZ out of carbs and calories. It occurred to us that perhaps a more sensible approach to living might be in order. I am now back home in chilly Des Moines, and am feeling "the pinch" of having enjoyed myself way too much while in Phoenix. So in order to get myself back on track to healthier choices in both eating and exercise, I'm going to bore people (and myself) with a back to health blog. Eventually, I hope to invite others to join my efforts in health and general well being improvement, but for now I'm kinda winging it here in the bloggosphere.

Just to prove I'm serious, I am going back to my meal planning and I will also be recording that food which I put in my mouth. I am well aware that it may be a rude wake up call, but I'm kinda thinkin' that might be just what I need to jump start my new program. That, and the weather has taken a turn for the better here, so this afternoon I'm off for a walk around the "hood".

As I thought when I labeled this post, "Ya Gotta Start Somewhere", and this is my beginning.


  1. Look at you! Not only did you figure out the blogosphere on your own, but you did it so quickly. It's amazing what excessive consumption of food and drink will inspire. I've tried to make smarter choices today - I'm not going to consider the pancetta on my turkey sandwich as a bad thing. I asked to hold the mayo and got fruit instead of chips. I consider those baby steps in the right direction. I'll contribute more when it's on "my" time and not my employers. :)
