Oh nice, you started a journal here with us, awesome. Looks like a good start. You mentioned you are most concerned with your diet in your intro. Maybe keeping tabs on what you eat is also a good thing to track?

I wasn't able to make it to the gym lately, due to taking care of sick family. I was able to get some cardio/fun in however, which is good because it is what keeps me sane. I can't believe what difference in mood and attitude a little bit of exercise makes. I know a lot of people fall off during the holidays, I'm actually looking forward to some time off work so I can get back on track during the holidays!

11/22

90 minutes surfing

Great idea, I think I'll keep a food log here too. I've been tracking on and off, but its time that I get serious about it. Using some of info from the following thread I came up with some goal numbers. If anyone has any comments about these I'd be grateful. Thanks!!
