Strong is the new skinny

I love this quote "Strong is the new skinny". I started working out and eating well Febuary 4th 2011. About 2 weeks into it I started to feel better and have more energy during the day. Next week I am going to the "bod pod" to see what my bmi is now and to see what I have to do to get to a healthy bmi. I am going to be brave here and post my weight and size, I really have never wanted to say those things outloud and admit how big I have gotten over the years. This will be nice to look back on and see how far I have come.
Today 3/27/2011 I weight 226, wear a size 20 uniform pant. When I go to the bod pod I will accurate information and every 3 months I will go back for my current bmi results. I look forward to this journey.

Men of Honor

I saw the movie Men of Honor today. It was a fantastic movie based on a true story. The main thing I got out of it was that we need to be thankful for what people went through in the past. We take things for granted now, we don't have to worry about not getting hired because we are black or white, male or female, jewish or irish. It's incredible to think how things were just a short time ago. We have a long way to go but look how far we have come.

The Basement

Fonz and the boys have been working on cleaning out our basement for a few weeks now. They work for one hour once a week, usually on trash day. They have made so much progress in just a short time, I'm very happy with what they have done so far. Today I joined them and we purged the laundry. We have 7 trash bags of clothes to donate, probably about 1/2 of what was downstairs waiting to be washed. We have a goal to finish cleaning the basement and make it nice enough to have Thanksgiving for my side of the family at our house this year. We had it at our house the first year we were married. That was 20 years ago when not all my siblings were married and Jessica was the only grandchild. Now there are about 25(?) of us to gather for some turkey. I think I will track the progress on this blog.

1st post

It was suggested by a friend that I might enjoy blogging. So I'm giving it a try. It seems alot like a table for one at the facebook cafe. We'll see.
