I have been in California now for two years. Since arriving, I have learned a lot and have had to make some big changes in the way I do things. California is expensive and it can be tough to keep focused on the reasons I moved out here when trying to pay bills and find a steady place to live. One area that has definitely suffered has been my overall health. I have not been eating as well and have not been working out consistently. This has lead to me reverting to a much more... husky guy (to use the term given to describe kids my size by jean companies in the 80s).
However, this ol' chubster here is going to have to make some changes quickly! On Wednesday I finalized plans to join the Lincoln Auto Show team this year. That means in a month I will need to be in a lot better shape unless I wanna be the fat dork at training surrounded by models. I mean, I could still be the funny fat guy, that has always worked for me but eventually I'm going to have to squeeze into some designer clothes and the fact is, they don't really make the designer clothes to wrap nicely around tire guts! Sometimes a good kick in the ass is needed to get moving. This job will work nicely for a well needed kick.
So, in the next month I am locking it down! The shit eating has got to go as well as the beer (until I get to Michigan and grab an Oberon... and Jet's pizza!). I will also be increasing the amount of workouts and the intensity. It has been a long time coming (as you can see by earlier posts on here about getting healthy again). I will be updating on here as often as I can... or I'll forget it all together, get distracted and show up to Michigan just as "husky" as I am now... let's see how it goes!
