Slow Start

My last post I got all excited about getting back on the Wii Fit and losing some of the pounds that had crept up on me over the past few months. I was serious too, and had great intentions to get right on it, assuming that the next morning I would be slalom skiing down Wii mountain. No such luck. It seems as though throughout the day there are a million things that prevent me from exercising. Needless to say, it had not started out too well. (Sorry Small Town Momma.) The good news is today I finally just grabbed the board and fired up the Wii and got going. T would only allow me about 20 minutes before he got "so bored" that I had to call it quits. At least I was able to do something, which is better than the past numerous weeks. The Wii scale says I gained more weight, so I hope that motivates me to get back on tomorrow and try to get a downward slope on the weight chart. Wish me luck.

Throwing Down Some Words

Words. Something. Anything. Just write something. You have all felt that at some time. Things got really busy, and at times depressing, and sometimes just too tiring, so I took a hiatus. To sum that period up, I can just say we are no longer chicken farmers due to economic conditions currently affecting the poultry industry. I don't want to dwell on it. Let's move forward together. We live in town now, so I can actually look out my window and see people. We have fast food within a mile of us, close enough to walk to really, but I'm guessing that if you are the type of people who eat fast food, you're not the type who walk a mile to go get it when you have a perfectly capable car sitting right there in the driveway. Which leads to the next topic:
Weight gain. I once posted about how nice it was to be a chicken farmer because I had to walk several miles a day through the houses, which allowed me to burn ungodly numbers of calories. I could basically eat anything I wanted and not gain weight. Well, having been a non-working slacker for a while now I have gained 21 pounds from my final week or so of farming. It seems as though I will need some type of plan for losing weight. I was reading Small Town Mommy's blog and found I am not the only one facing the weight loss issue. I think I will take her advice and get back to working out on the Wii Fit. Wish me luck.

Although no longer being a chicken farmer can make one 'sad', it has worked out ok for me. It allows me to be a SAHD (stay at home dad). How depressing is that acronym? I know this is no longer the 50's or anything, but being a SAHD is still like fighting against the current. It is only temporary, but it will be long enough to get to be a lifestyle for now. It is definitely a change in life style for me. I'll most likely be using it a fodder for my blogs from here on out. That way you can all feel my pain, and joy as I go through this.

That wasn't so bad. I started with no thoughts on what to say, and after I typed a single word the rest followed. Let's see if that can happen next time.
