The Journey Begins (Again)

Hello there!  Thanks for joining me!   I’ve attempted blogging a few times but have never really stuck with it.   I’m not promising that this time will be any different, but I’m going to try.   Normally, I spend more time trying to make my site look pretty than I do actually writing.  I’m going to do my best to not stress over that this time and focus on the important part — the writing and the journey!

So, what will this blog be about?   Hmm, I don’t know yet.  I think the best answer to that will be – me.   This will be about me and whatever it is that is going on with me that I feel like sharing with the world or the tiny corner of the world that stumbles upon this blog.

I’m happily married for over 10 years with two kids.  I work full time in Information Technology.  My hobbies include reading, singing, playing board games or card games, and playing World of Warcraft (when I have time).   For the Alliance!

Part of the reason for me starting this blog up again, is that I need to lose weight.   I’m close to 100 lbs overweight, but we won’t start with that or focus on that right now.   Right now, I need to focus on losing 10 pounds.   Ten pounds at a time is how I’ll get there.

Starting today, I’m going to try to commit to 3 things:

  • Drink at least 70 ounces of water a day
  • Exercise for at least 15 minutes a day (walking counts)
  • Make healthier food choices most of the time
