One Voice

… because one voice, armed with the truth, can help begin to heal the world.

It really all comes down to one day at a time

One day at a time.

It’s frustrating to look at it that way, but I have come to understand that’s really the only way I can look at it when it comes to my weight. Indeed, my overall health. There have been too many times in the last 30 years that I have spent months and months dieting and exercising to get myself into peak condition. In 1985, I could do a solid hour of intense circuit training when 22 1/2 minutes was considered a complete workout.

In 1989 and 1992, I could do an hour on the StairMaster at the highest setting possible.

Of course, I was much younger then. It got much more difficult in my fifties, and when I turned 60, I honestly didn’t know if I could do it again. It took a lot more help than usual and I actually used my computer to keep track, thanks to the arm band I wore every day that measured my activity and my sleep.

It really helped me — one day at a time — to do what I needed to do.

Today I charged my armband and started wearing it for the first time. I used the Website to count calories — I’m allowed 1,300 a day as long as I exercise for an hour and a half. I only managed a little less than an hour of walking today, but I only consumed about 600 calories.

A good first day.

A good first step. Tomorrow I’ll take the second one.

Just like any other alcoholic.
