First things first, and my friend Tim is going to hate me for saying this, but I’m eating real food. Food that I make. Food that doesn’t come from a box. Food that is minimally processed. This does not mean I’m hitting my local Whole Foods and dropping $100 on seven to nine items. It just means I’m eating meals made of real ingredients.
Second things second, I’m avoiding sugar. And yes, this means things that contain sugar or things that turn into sugar. So bread and wine are on the “use sparingly” list. It’s not like I down wine like water to begin with, but I have been known to take the edge off of a day with my beloved Apothic Red. And that means cutting out the Goldfish, too. Why? Processed carbs turn into sugar in the blood stream. Potato chips? Sugar in disguise. It’s all about how the body breaks it down and translates it. I didn’t just make this shit up. It’s for reals.
Third things third, I’m moving again. It’s a fact that as my girth increases, it’s harder for me to move. Have you heard about the Stand to Sit to Stand Test? It’s kind of making the rounds in my friend circles and so I gave it a shot and let’s just say it didn’t go so well. Oh hell, let me show you. I want you to know I believe we are in the Circle of Trust here. Judgment-free zones. Right? Right? Also, Dan decided to join in the fun. You know, for fun.
So yeah, I’m a little Spongebob-esque right now. And I’m out of shape, which is more the point here. Regardless of my size, I should be more agile that I am.
So I’m going to do what is needed.
I can do better.
