Welcome to my blog

2007 was a good year for me in two regards:

1. I lost a ton of weight and made a great start towards a fit physique.

2. I got a dream job that allows me to have weekends off, no night shifts, and a 25%+ payraise.

I guess I celebrated a little too heartily during the 2007 holiday season. I ate like crazy and didn't work out religiously. As a result I put on 10 pounds and most of it had to be fat. This is probably normal for most people, but I've been strict on myself for 2 years and didn't backslide at all previously.

The reason for this backsliding, near as I can figure, is that I have a lack of accountability to peers. Many experts say that if you are accountable to friends and/or peers that you will be more dedicated. So, I decided to start this blog, my first one nonetheless.

Over the next week or so I'll line out my plans, goals, diet, and work out specifics. If the readership has any advice, I'm all eyes/ears. If it's healthy and makes sense, I'll adopt and give props. Thanks for reading.
