I’ve been really lazy about working out this summer, and I’ve been eating and drinking beer too much, so now I’m all squishy and out of shape. But I’m turning it around. I worked out four days this week, and instead of just lifting weights I’ve started riding the “exerbike”! The result: I’ve lost 4 pounds!

I should really write a self-help book. My best strategy so far is writing down in this little journal I have everything I eat, all the exercise I get, and what time I wake up. Just the act of writing down “breakfast: large rice crispy treat” inspires me to eat better and exercise more. I’m also replacing food, which has calories, with water, which does not. I have to pee all the time but other than that I feel much better.
