A Birthday and a Rebirth

Rock bottom. That’s where I am right now. I had a fun and productive week of work, but it was also a big step back for my diet.

I gained six pounds. Seriously.

Last Saturday, I went to a New York Yankees game with my son, Jack, and that was the start of my week-long junk food odyssey.

Then, I was in New Orleans for a conference, and I love cajun food. I loved a lot of it to that point where I overdid it over many days.

My 46th birthday was during those days, and the combination of overindulging for my birthday and overall eating delicious food like a horse has caught up with me.

It was fun while it lasted, but I need to get serious about this stuff.

Starting over… I’ve got boats to build…

It’s time for a change
I’m tired of that same ol same
The same ol words the same ol lines
The same ol tricks and the same ol rhymes

Days precious days
Roll in and out like waves
I got boards to bend I got planks to nail
I got charts to make I got seas to sail

I’m gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It’ll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I’ve got boats to build

Starting weight: 233
