Going along for the ride

Life is doing its thing. It’s moving ever forward, though every day seems the same. I don’t feel like I am in a rut, but life sure is. Except for the odd run to the drug store and going into work some days, I don’t do much. Everything I am doing is home bound. I … Continue reading Going along for the ride

I am turning back the clock

I have been doing this health kick since Christmas break. I never planned it; it took a life of its own. I had gained a lot of weight a few months before. I hate to admit this, but I let myself get out of control. As I gain weight, I cannot move well, and thus … Continue reading I am turning back the clock

A new page.

I was at my heaviest again after Christmas 240lbs. I am only 5’4”. Actually, I am under that 5’3.5” now that I am older. I was feeling every pound of the weight. My hips and knees ached daily. I was out of breath just moving a little bit. I have osteoarthritis and asthma, so those … Continue reading A new page.

It’s time to start taking care of me…

I gained all the weight back these past few months. I was back at my heaviest. I am a short guy, so this is not a good situation for my health. I have lost most of what I regained, but I have decided that I am going to take care of myself and finally lose … Continue reading It’s time to start taking care of me…

I haven’t written for a long time

I am stating the obvious with this title. I haven't written anything in over a month. I always seem to blame Terra for this as she like to lay on my keyboard a lot lately – she is not to blame. I always say I am holding up and doing well with this Covid pandemic … Continue reading I haven’t written for a long time

Plugging along…

How are things? How are you holding up? Those are the big questions these days, what with everything going on. These are strange times. If one would have asked me at the start of the year, I could not see this coming – this lock down due to Covid-19; not in a million years. Since … Continue reading Plugging along…

Reflections on a smoky day

The smoke thickens the air.My breath wheezing with every intake.Thank God for my inhaler.It took sometime before I acquired a prescription.Fate, it seems played a preliminary hand.Foretelling of the events to come – Covid-19 and smoke.Who could have foreseen this last year?No one.Only fate it seems anticipates. I can breathe now.The drug has kicked in.The … Continue reading Reflections on a smoky day

Delving deep

This only first draft, so my goal for this year is to get it all out. I want to complete the first run and get the story on paper with all the chapters. Already, I can observe that snippets of the story will need to be reorganized to help with story flow. Right now, there … Continue reading Delving deep

A step in the right direction

At my heaviest I was almost 240lbs (109Kg, or 17 stone), that’s not something anyone wants to brag about. I am 5’4” (1.6m) and I am morbidly obese. I wasn’t always so. Up until I was 16 or 17 years old, I was 135 to 140lbs with a 30” waist. I never started putting on … Continue reading A step in the right direction
