He ain't heavy - well, actually, he is
I never could master yo-yo's. Always got them tangled or twisted. Tricks? Heck, I'd love just to keep one going for up-and-down more than a couple of times.
But when it comes to weight - I'm a yo-yo veteran.
I've been up and down so many times over the years. My current uptick has me about 50 pounds above my wedding day weight (which was just about ideal for my height). No, I don't blame my wife and her good cooking.
It's sitting around.
Yet more sitting.
And chocolate, milk shakes, chips, etc.
And, of course, sitting.
So I need to cut down on the food and get more exercise.
My goal is actually not drastic - 50 pounds by next Christmas. Five pounds a month - not a sudden crash diet.
Lent is a good time to help me get serious. 40 days away from all those tempting treats.
But I start today.
Pax et bonum
