I was going over some emails and I came across a promise to my lovely wife Terra, that I have never kept. For as long as I have, going forward I renew a promise and make no mistake about it I feel like shit because I made a promise I have not been good for. “And I don’t care how much my stomach hurts, I am going to exercise and lose weight, because you inspire me to do it.” I have excuses for everything or I can conjure up the best excuses with the best of them. When I was younger my mom said I had an excuse book hidden somewhere. I should have started to work on that from that moment. The truth is I have no excuse. I could blame my exessive weight gain on depression, boredom, or camp life that I lived in a remote mining camp years ago. But it doesn’t detract from the point that I have had years to work on this and right this. I make poor choices on what to eat and when to eat some times. I know best what my body responds to and I don’t do it. But alas I am at a point now that if I don’t want to die when I am in my 30s I better get into gear and make the last 10 years just a footnote on my life. To go from a place and time where I started the weight gain to now, I can’t even put into words what has happened. The fact is I am able bodied, and I will be doing those things that I find fun. This summer I will be playing baseball. I start what I am calling spring training next week. As my foot (and this sounds like an excuse but isn’t) no matter where it is in the healing process fact is I can walk on it, and maybe through some solid exercise I can help it along. And I put this out here not to make an issue. But rather to make this a public promise to the love of my life to get healthy! And really stop worrying the crap out of her. Oh and stop injuring myself in 2013 🙂
