5 Days to go. I set up my follow up physical for this week. I am excited to see the results. I do not expect big differences and to be honest, if the numbers are not that different, i am okay with that. The way I feel and how I am eating are real. And I know that my Doctor will be impressed with the changes I haver made. I know that i feel amazing and that is what counts.
A lot of people are so focused on “how much have you lost!?”. And while I truly do understand why my weight loss gets a lot of focus. I would like to stress, that weight loss is only one item to measure. I really do want people to know this was huge lifestyle change for me. I did not exercise or eat real healthy before this. Of course I am curious how much weight I have lost. BUT, If i am lucky enough to leave with 3-5 new habits, my life will be tremendously different. How I eat and the food I buy have already changed. Walking and staying active (3-5) times day for only 10 minutes, works! I like the way I feel. I like Do.ing and grooving.
The weather cooperated again today! I went to Highland Park and played some Disc Golf. Some of you may know it as Frisbee Golf. It was a blast. I met with Vayong and he took me through some of the rules. Surprisingly, they are lot like real golf. I loved the idea of getting in more steps/walking in on the day. The wind was pretty strong today, but what a great way to get out and move! Thanks Vayong.
I have been studying my Buddy Holly script as much as possible, Rehearsals start tomorrow night and i am excited to start the process of learning the Big Bopper role. Being away from acting for a solid month, it will feel good to get back on feet and back to a regular schedule. It will be a good test for eating healthy and planning ahead. I feel so good.
Blue Cross has been so supportive in helping me prepare for my return to my “real life” With what I have learned, I am confident that many new healthy habits will be part of my life.
Thank you Blue Cross for this amazing opportunity. I thank you, My wife thanks you and our 2 dogs tails are wagging!
