I have made these sort of posts before. Letting the world know what my goals in life are so that I may have some sort of accountability to make sure they get done. It hasn't really worked in the past but writing them down still helps me at least attempt to meet them.
I want to be healthy. I have no problem with being overweight, but I can already feel my heart starting to give out and I am only 24. Years of substance abuse and an extremely bad diet have worn my body far past where it should be for a gent. of my age. It is a bit scary and I want that too change.
I have already been changing my diet and cutting back almost all of my substance abuse. I mostly drink water these days and almost never have fast food. I rarely drink anymore. Drugs have always been an issue and they are a bit harder to kick but I am fighting temptation and giving them the boot as well.
So what else is there to do? Let me tell you friends.. excersize!
It has been a long time goal of mine to start a regular work out pattern. Just because it is something I want does not mean it is easy to do. My body and mind still try to make me be lazy. Laziness is in the core of who I am.
My plan is to start getting up at 5:30 in the morning every day. I want to go for a morning jog followed quickly by a short round of pushups and sit ups. If I do it right I could be done by 6AM, my usual wake up time, and get a shower in.
I think it would also be good to increase the quantity of food I eat for breakfast as well as the protein content. Maybe instead of yogurt or cereal I will have a couple of eggs and toast.
So that is the plan so far.
In other news I should be done paying off my security deposit by the end of this month. Which means a new computer should shortly follow. When that happens expect a Green Glasses content explosion. I have been sitting on a lot of stuff that needs to get out.
See you next time, Space Cowboys...
