This is a very fast post just to go ahead and get this log started. I wanted to make sure I started it today because today would have been my father's 71st birthday. He passed on January 3rd and things have been really hard since. I am starting to make it through piece by piece....but it's for him, and for my unborn son's that I am pushing forward HARD in this log.
Welcome to all my subscribers and supporters. I'm going to need your help more than ever through this journey!
Thanks brother, I appreciate your ongoing support!
I'm in this!
In for the babies..
Day 1 *the real day 1*
It was a good day for the most part. What I mean is that I could have broke down pretty bad with it being my father's birthday and I could have hit a bar or 12 and ate horribly and made things a big friggen mess. Instead, I had one meal that was not exactly great for me, and I had a good workout in the great outdoors on a softball field with some pals. Not to say I didn't feel sad...but it helped. My father taught me everything I know about baseball (which is A LOT) and he coached me along to win some championships and play in some All Star games here and there...so that was in my mind during playing. It didn't hurt me though....it kind of made me proud. My father was a good man, and sometimes doing things like that will remind me of just how much he loved me.
We were out on the field last night for about 2 hours. I spent a good deal of time between covering left/center and trying to run down everything...and then moving in to play some infield shots as well. I then hit for I would say about 75 pitches from the right side and about 25 from the left (I bat lefty sometimes in games to throw off a pitcher). I then fielded first bag while my buddy was practicing his fielding at SS. It was a good workout..in the outdoors
I did well for most of the day here being as how it was the kind of day that it was. I did however end up having a Chicken Parmesan Panini after softball which kind of ruined the trend...but i'm not upset about it. I think I did very well for the day I was facing....and I don't regret any of it
What Tomorrow Holds
Since it's pouring outside we have moved our USTA Tennis Team practice from our outdoor courts to the indoor courts. I plan to hit 2 hours of doubles and then potentially do a yoga session following tennis. All depends on time constraints
As of today (3/29/09) I am weighing at 234.6 lbs
I am WAYYY up since last summer and I am going to have to really battle here to bring that down. I did however put on a lot of muscle along with this stupid fat....but still, its not something I am happy about.
My official first goal on log is to be down to 228.5lbs by April 15th.
I don't know how I missed this CT, good luck w/ the little babies!!!
I bet you're excited!!! I heard that one is hard work, I can only imagine how much work two of them is going to be, bu't you'll love every second of it right??
I'm in here Chuck !
