Summer blues & blahs

Hey, everyone, sorry for the very long delay in posting.  Summer has not been the easiest time for me to write or workout for that matter.  So I'm hoping to get back to a regular posting a few times a week starting tonight!

To begin with, my workouts have been erratic and sporadic.  I have not managed to workout two or three days a week and several of my workouts have only been half hearted.  As a result my weight has steadily climbed and currently I sit at 207 pounds, up from my low of 193.

There have been a number of issues which have contributed to my lack of dedication to working out but they are not excuses.  Fact is, I have had opportunities to workout and just haven't taken advantage of them.  Well, on Sunday, July, 19, 2009, I am going to begin to take advantage of my opportunities and not only get the weight off, but get my body into the best shape of my life.  That is my new goal!

So, I hope you're ready to take this journey with me!  If I can figure out how to do it, I'm going to post a current picture to use as a base for my workouts and I'll update it each week to track my progress or lack thereof.  Wish me luck and feel free to leave comments or ask questions.  I'll post some additional video footage as I take it.  Good luck and I hope you have a great summer!
