Welcome back to my page. It has been a long two weeks since I posted last. That is very unfortunate. In my mind I have concocted several excuses why I have not written for awhile. The reality is that I need to confront the excuses and just say that I have been lazy lately. Wanting to write but lacking the motivation to do so. Worst yet, I have fallen off the wagon with my diet. I think that is what is dragging me down lately. When you let this snowball to get too big is makes recovery difficult and seeming nearly impossible. What I need to do is take this horse by the reigns and get back on the track to success.
Enough dwelling on the past. I cannot change the past but I can decide to take other paths in my future. There have been positives lately and I just want to highlight just a few seeing that this posting is not going to follow my normal pattern.
My garden decided to get away from me and is producing kale and spinach faster than I can keep up with. I am looking forward to freezing some this weekend for consumption during the non growing season. Broccoli and cauliflower are making a great comeback and looks like they could provide a plentiful crop. Now to get the rest of the garden growing that good.
I am also in the process of building a aquaponics system that could allow me to grow several vegetables even in the heart of the Wisconsin winter. More information will follow concerning this within a week or two.
My exercise is one thing that has remained solid. I have been getting up at 4:00 A.M. and hitting the gym at work. I have been putting in a great hour of exercise every morning. I have seen much improvement. Morning time seems to be the best motivation time for me, since I am a big time morning person. I also took and passed my advancement test for martial arts. I am now right at the halfway mark to becoming a black belt in karate.
One of the most difficult things that I have had to deal with these last couple of weeks is my diet. More junk in then I really want. I have not made bread lately and the other eating in my opinion has been terrible. This coming week however is the week to reinvent my diet. Not only getting it back on track but my goal is to step it up to the next level. I will get back to baking my bread, but I also have been learning how to make my own yogurt. I am really excited about this.
This is just a brief message about where I have been lately. Not good but am making the transition back and look to be better then ever. Have a great day and I will see you all soon.
