DAY ONE of 365

I likely picked the worst (or best???) time of year to start something like this.  I am surrounded by sugary cookies, parties, alcohol, and everything else that I know would end this before it even begins.  Then again, when you know…  you know.  It is time to get moving.  Perhaps by losing 5 pounds over Christmas instead of gaining 10, I may actually come out 15 pounds ahead.

And so, with Christmas only 4 days away, I am giving up sugar and starting things off on the right foot.  I am hoping that come New Year’s, I will have a jump on everyone and the resolution craziness will keep me motivated.  Let’s be serious.  If I can’t get motivated on January 1st, it will NEVER happen.  I have always been a “start on Monday” kind of guy.  Well, New Year’s Day is the king of “Mondays”.  There is no better time to wipe the slate clean and attack a new program.  That’s what makes this early start so odd for me.

Easier said than done.  My mind is ready to tear into things, ala Rocky as he runs up the 72 steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  My body, however, has other ideas.  I can almost cry laugh at how sickeningly out of shape I am.  After just 5 minutes of medium strenuous cardio, I need a nap.  No, seriously.  I need a nap.  My body rebels almost immediately, and I actually nodded off mid-sentence chatting with my 9 year old.  She thought it was hilarious.  I have a bit to go before I can attack anything with even the smallest crumb of intensity.  It is what it is for now.
