The past month has been hedonistic to say the least. Even Charlie Sheen called me and asked me to slow down. Its not healthy for me mentally and actually its just making things worse, fun as it has been.
When your friend feels the need to have a quiet word and you can sense the worried tone in his voice its time to wake up again and get head out of the sand and face reality.
So let’s call the last month my “Goodbye 30s blow out month” and never speak of it again….
As the saying goes “What happens in your Goodbye 30s blowout month stays in your Goodbye 30s blowout month”…..
Im affected by memories and anniversary dates and finally figured out why I’ve been off the rails so much lately and thanks to Karl’s well chosen words and support its time to move onwards and upwards.
As my old friend weegee would say “keep on keeping on”
There are just over 2 months before my 40th birthday and I need to find a new outlet. Random sex with strangers is not helping matters and I’ve run out of “I slept with the Depressed Moose” t-shirts to hand out so i need something more rewarding and challenging.
With that in mind I have signed up for a 6 weeks fitness and nutritional boot camp to get my arse into gear and hopefully be able to use the endophines to improve my mental health. Weight loss is the aim as well as getting fitter because the way I see myself now is getting me down. Even if its more in my head than how others see me I would like to be able to look in the mirror and like what i see rather than be embarrassed. Hell maybe even look down and see my toes again…
Its going to be a real challenge, I have to try changing my whole diet, my eating habits and lifestyle and truth be told I’m a lazy bastard who really doesnt think I’m worth the effort….
I had my weigh in today no getting out of it now so here are my facts as I start tomorrow
- Weight 225lbs
- Stomach measurement 43 inches
- Chest measurement 42 inches
- Hips measurement 43 inches
The target weight loss in 6 weeks is 20lbs which should be achievable but im aiming to at least be under 200lbs by the time this is up.
3 exercise classes a week and better food choices should make it easier.
I’m both excited and anxious. The last time I really exercised properly was 5 years ago training for the Bupa 10k run I did.
I need something and I just hope this is what I need….
Wish me luck and if you see me in Epping anywhere near a burger slap it out my hands quick!!
