The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, so let be me a man of good Actions instead.

To that end, here is the act of blogging; a good act that I know helps me. This will be just an update to keep this process going and to allow me a brief moment to get in touch with where I'm at, where I'm going, and why.

I had a pretty busy week after the Vegas weekend, and didn't make the time to follow-up on the work-out success I had there with work-outs at home. However, this last week I started working out a little bit in my room again.

Then, last Wednesday, I hired someone to go for walks with me 5 days a week. The hourly wage is much more about them actually coming to my office and having me come and go for a walk with them, then the walk itself. The hardest part is the getting started I realized, so this set-up fixes that. Plus I enjoy the company quite a bit which always makes the experience more enjoyable.

I am eating okay, but not as good as I would like. I am trying to think of a mechanism I can put in place, similar to my mandatory walk partner, to help me get some serious traction in that area.

Overall, I feel very good about all the walking and working out I've done in the last 3 weeks,and feel pretty damn good in general.

I am currently objectively optimistic about the immediate future. And I like that.
