After a seven-month hiatus from blogging…
I looked at the last post I made, and it’s easy to see why I fell off the blogwagon. In mid-May 2013 I had lost about 70 pounds in five months. The change in eating habits and overall lifestyle had dominated the first five months of the year.
Shortly after my last blog, I settled in to a comfortable eating program, letting go of some of the restrictions, and allowing myself to enjoy a few beers at baseball games and some occasional junk food. Until the first of November I had only gained back about ten pounds, and I was still feeling very healthy and alive. Quite consciously, I allowed my restrictions to relax further in order to enjoy the countless family gatherings and treats of the holiday season.
Ten pounds later, I now have 20 pounds to lose in the coming year. For me, this will take about a month…not too bad.
A recap of 2013 is coming soon. The year was marked with a new love of an old game, a deepening love for my wonderful wife, a broader appreciation for the short time we have on the planet, and a new perspective on how to improve everything from my spiritual journey to my social well-being.
I’m looking forward to writing again in 2014.
