I Conquered 2 Miles

Hi all,

I went on a walk today. I decided to walk with my guy to the comic book shop he walks to weekly. I doubted I’d handle it fully, but I overcame those doubts and pushed through. I did need two rests, BUT, I didn’t take the first brief rest until at 1.18 miles had been completed.

The total walk was around 2.36 miles. I sadly can’t show you on the polar as I didn’t realize the battery was as low as it was. It recorded the first half of the walk and then the gps and heart rate went out from lack of battery. So I just doubled the distance of the walk to the shop to get that accurate number. The polar says I walked 2.86 miles but I know that’s wrong so will not count it.

After the massive sweating on the walk I finally was able to post a weight loss. I am now at 306.8lbs.

I need to lose 5lbs to win the 4th of July challenge. I have 13 days to do that. It will be interesting to see what number I end up with.

I will be working on the newest prototype tomorrow. I have new band material to see if that works better in some ways.

This evening I will be doing some air layering on the peach and hazelnut trees. Hoping I can get a few clones.

Well, it’s been a good last weekend of July so far. I hope for you as well.

Keep it going,


Short Stuff

Hi all,

I had a busy day. I am currently working on some stuff for anyone that decides to subscribe to the upcoming monthly newsletter.

I will be talking more about it Monday.

Cross your fingers for my weigh in tomorrow. We are down to two weeks for both the 4th of July and group mini goals. I may be doing a few fasts if need be.

Well back to business,

Keep it going,


80 Days Strong

Hi all,

Today is day 80 on this healthy journey!


What have I accomplished in 80 days?

So much!

  • Finished rough draft of a book.
  • Lost 29lbs
  • Lowered my resting heart rate from the high 80s to the high 60s
  • Conquered 1.7 mile walk
  • Went from level 3 to 5 on legs on Total Gym
  • Am able to do 40 pullups on level 2 on Total Gym
  • Stayed under calories all but 1 day
  • Have gotten to a higher plane spirtually
  • Have gotten a front fence installed
  • Have invented a product and am on the 5th prototype
  • Have surpassed 100 blog posts, 100 followers and over 60 posts in a row
  • Increased my water intake by 100+%
  • Invested in all aspects of my journey to better health

There’s more but that’s enough for now.

If I can make these changes, you can. 80 days is less than 3 months, less than a quarter of a year. This is but the beginning of my journey, but what a beginning.

The Nuts are Here

Hi all,

It’s quite hot today. I just went out to snap a few pictures. I mean, I’m from the deep south so I wasn’t uncomfortable in the heat but I will not deny it is sweltering today.

I checked on most of my plants. They are handling the heat well. I remembered I promised to share some hazelnut tree pictures to sjow off it’s production. Here you go!

It must have a hundred nuts put on. I won’t be able to reach them all in a month or so when they’re ripe but it’s fabulous results when it doesn’t have a cross pollinator. That tree is around 5 years old and last year it produced around 12 hazelnuts I found. It just makes me so happy.

Well tomorrow I’ll be up early hitting the Total Gym. Going to give it my all to get 40 pullups. Once I get to 50, I’ll move up to level 3 for arms.

Peanut butter cups are still my weakness haha! I’ve had 6 today.

Keep it going,


Not Much to Report

Hi all,

It’s been a slothy Tuesday here. I hope yours has been more interesting.

Yesterday I hit the Total Gym harder and I have some mildly sore inner thighs to show for it. Check out my improvement though.

Tg stats 7/26/21

Hoping to get up to 40 pullups next session. We shall see.

The trike will be coming out again soon. I’ll never be able to conquer hills if I don’t work on it.

Keep it going,
