A Good Day

Had a good day with the wife and kids today. I rarely get much sleep, and usually need a nap during the afternoon on days when I have to work, but I skipped it today and I'm glad I did.

We went out to Foy's in Fairborn and enjoyed ourselves picking things up for the kids so they can dress up for Trotcon.

Picked up some BW3 for the family and came to work.

Nothing too exciting, but it was still a great day.

Health and Fitness

I'll be 51 in August, and I have let myself go a bit too much over the years... I'm not going to belabor the point, but I'm heavier than I should be, I don't get enough exercise, my blood pressure is too high, and my triglycerides need to come down quite a bit.

In order to try and live a bit healthier lifestyle -- after all, in addition to my grown children I have a 9 year old and a 4 year old, and I'd like to be around to see them graduate -- I've come to a few decisions.

#1 -- I'm going to exercise more.
#2 -- I'm eliminating all alcohol from my diet. No more booze, no more beer.
#3 -- I'm eliminating all soft drinks from my diet.
#4 -- I'm going to eliminate white bread from my diet.
#5 -- I'm going to eat as little red meat as possible.

I'll keep you updated. Wish me luck.
