Oh how the mighty have fallen...

Well, I don't consider myself mighty, but I sure have fallen. It's been way too long since my last post, which is totally an indication of how I've been doing lately on my quest. I haven't ridden my bike or worked out much, and I've fallen back into unhealthy eating practices. BUT, I plan to change that NOW.

Friday my partner and I went to Trader Joe's and stocked up on lots of healthier options for meals. I'm also going to suck it up and start biking in to work unless there is no possible way to avoid lots of rain. I do enjoy riding the bike, especially on the side streets where I can ride safely on the streets. The way to work is mostly downhill, which makes for a nice ride, but of course means the way back involves many more hills, but I don't care how much I sweat going home. I've just got to get in the habit. It'll be so good to do it regularly.

I've definitely noticed a difference in my mood and energy levels since I haven't been taking care of myself. I've been much more lethargic and sleepy. I look forward to that getting better soon. I hope to get some water weight off and get to feeling more peppy before our big vacation in two weeks to New Mexico. We're staying at a nice resort with a spa, pools, and a golf course. Not that I golf, but I will utilize the rest. I'll get my first massage there!

I'll be blogging more, keeping myself honest too.

Until next time.

In lieu of a real post, have a pic of our brand new tattoos! Obviously I'm the star one and my wife is the henna inspired one.
