The next milestone

So I started this blog 4 years ago with the intention of losing 50 lbs. Well, I've never actually reached that yet nor did I even set a deadline of when I was going to do that. Well that's kind of pointless eh? Lemme correct this by publishing this intent for the world to hold me accountable - Before my 5 year anniversary of this blog, I WILL LOSE 50 lbs. No excuses.

To get me to this goal, I have a few more very measurable and achievable ones that I will definitely need to hit.
  1. Work out 5 times a week.
  2. Consume home cooked food 15 meals a week. When on travel, stick to goal #4.
  3. No alcohol and No cigarettes.
  4. Eat healthy fresh food whenever possible - low glycemic index/glycemic load, not processed, low simple carbs - at least 5 times a week.
  5. Spend 1 hour to myself offline - 5 times a week.
  6. Stay on top of all medical work, appointments, and executing recommendations.
  7. No moving apartments, cities, countries for at least a year.
  8. Stop going over and beyond the duties of a friend to rescue or save people as I used to.
I have gotten distracted and lost in the past so I'll promise to post a monthly report of my progress. And I need you, my friend, to keep me accoutantable :)

Being alive and healthy can be as easy or as hard as you'd like to make it. I'm definitely grateful for all that has happened to prompt me to start the blog the moment I started living on borrowed time. It's been exhilarating, joyful, painful, and heartbreaking all at the same time. As tough as I think it has been, I know it could have been much worse. I'm lucky to have great friends and great support throughout the years and there's really no reason why I can't achieve this next milestone so we can have another reason to celebrate!

Thank you!
