As of this morning at 0830, I weigh in at 164.4 pounds. I'm 5'10", which puts me at at a Body Mass Index of 23.6, or slightly on the higher end of normal according to this site.
I eat right (for the most part), nor do I smoke.
There's something else I don't do. I don't exercise. At all.
Aside from my walk to work (a few blocks for sure, but not at a pace or distance that works up a sweat), my lifestyle is best described as sedentary.
Actually, it would be senden-Terry, right? Right? (See? I'm even too sloth-like to write good jokes.)
I work at a desk. When I'm home, I'm watching the tube, writing or reading.
This HAS to change.
I'm an insulin-dependent diabetic. I manage my insulin and glucose levels quite well. However, that's like trying to sit on a stool that has only 2 legs. That 3rd leg is exercise.
"So Terry, why don't you just go exercise instead of boring me with your whiny Blog? Oh, and when are you going to shut up about this topic and give me a Keyword?"
RE: Keyword, it's "impatient" and it's good for 250 WDEZ Club Points until 1700 on 3/9/10.
RE: Exercise, I hate it. Seriously.

I like walking or biking on streets and trails, but that's about it. Those activities are seasonal in nature. (Get it? In nature, cuz you have to go outside? [CRICKETS] Wow. Tough room.)
I don't play sports of any sort, largely because I'm a bit introverted and therefore not inclined to walk up to some cats and say, "Hello chaps. Fancy a game of basketball?"
"Sure dude. We'll play shirts versus nerd. Guess which team you're on."
Going to a gym and lifting heavy objects or running in place on a machine? Ugh. I know it's good for me but it's just so... I dunno... dull. I've tried watching TV and listening to podcasts or music while I do it, but none of that shakes the feeling that I'm dying of boredom.
Or devolving into a hamster
Enough of this emo-whine fest. The fact of the matter is, I need to get some physical activity into my life. There's nothing too "The Biggest Loser" dramatic about a guy who weighs 164.4 pounds dropping to 163. Don't worry, this won't become a daily thing on my Blog.
When I'm faced with a challenge, I like to read about how others faced dealt with similar challenges. Doing so makes me feel like my mission is do-able and that I'm not alone in my effort.
If you're facing a similar challenge, I hope that my sharing makes you feel less alone in your efforts.
