A Manual Worth Reading

Remember when I announced my lifestyle change? Well I meant it. Like I said, I joined the Las Vegas Track Club and am (was?) training for a marathon. My legs are much tougher but I have no idea what it's doing for my blood pressure. I'm on medication for it so I don't know if any of the changes I've made have affected it. (Also, as of today I'm back on the roller blades so results can start showing up any time.)

Anyway, everyone has been really supportive of what I'm trying to do. But the award goes to Abigail and Tabitha. That's Abby in the blue, and Tab with the Mike. Ab & Tab (aren't the precious) have goals very similar to mine. We support each other in making healthy decisions every day, or almost every day, or whenever we're all not super busy with our own lives. But we try for every day.

For my birthday, the girls got me a book: You: The Owner's Manual. If you like watching medical shows about your insides, this is the book for you. It's really quite good. It's explaining how things work on my insides and how I can get optimal results from the foods I eat.

I got the book in January and didn't start reading until the end of February. I found that I wanted to spend more time on my blog. Then once I started reading, I made no time for my blog. So what was I to do?

Well I figured it out. I'm going to finish the book (I'm about halfway done). But along the way I'm going to leave some lessons here. That way I'll have something to write, a way to make sure I know what I'm reading, and I'll have something to look back and read once I'm done reading. It'll be like I'm taking notes, and you're all cheating off of me.
