Greetings! Shifting I do…

A while it has been since last I posted and a few updates for you I have.

Speak as Yoda does all the time I cannot

I’ve been trying to do this in Yoda-speak and it is difficult sometimes. In the past, I had posts I wanted to make and when I sit down to write them, it takes 3 times as long because I am trying to translate it into Yoda’s style of speaking. This is tedious and time consuming so I will no longer being doing it. I will try to throw some in here and there, but the majority of the posts will be in plain English.

Where have I been?

I’ve been working in landscaping for almost a year now and it keeps me very busy and very tired at times. It can be hard work and when I come home in the afternoons, I am tired! 😉 Typically, I come home and veg out. The typical response when a coworker asks what I’m doing after work is “Shower, eat, sleep.”

I decided I need to get back to doings things like posting to this blog and getting back on the path to good health. I fell off the wagon as far as my smoking and I also need to cut out the adult beverages. One thing about landscaping: we work hard and we party hard. This needs to stop so I can move forward with fat loss and attaining peak health. I plan to quit smoking again and make it stick. I may return to alcohol on a limited basis at some point in the future, but for now, I’m cutting it out.

What’s next?

Last fall, I started following a fat loss protocol called AltShift. It was created by Jason Seib and it works. I was doing well but things over the winter got out of hand and I stepped off the path. I’m getting back into it again and am going to stick with it for the long haul. I think one of the reasons I slipped was that I was getting tired of all the food prep and spending half of Sunday cooking. In the future, I plan to keep it simple and just do it. Being tired of cooking is not a valid reason to avoid eating healthy. Time to step up and get it done.

More on AltShift to come.

Soon I will see you and more updates I will have.
