Yes I know Tiger Woods and all that kinda hype. I got started golfing back in High School. Dad taught me and we went out pretty regularly. (this was BEFORE Tiger) It was mostly a fun thing, and some good exercise there. Not counting the swinging the club and hitting the ball there was the walking. (not many courses where we rented a cart)

One of the guys we bowled with on Thursday nights asked if I golfed. I told him that I can swing a club and 9 times out of 10 hit the ball...... if he was looking for someone better than that, then I really wasn't the one. Seems like I'm not the only one that is so-so when it comes to golf. So I went and got a new set of clubs today. Dragged Dad out to the driving range and we hit some balls. I realized that I've not forgotten all I knew about this game. I also realized that a gentle easy swing beats the hell out of me trying to kill the ball at the tee. When I tried to swing hard and muscle the ball it sucked.... When I just swung the club and tried to pop this 'bubble' (the golf ball) it sailed so fscking far and down range that I was in awe. I worked a little on the short game, and the putting. I'm sure that will all come back to me tomorrow.

It's gonna be fun, and at the very least it's us getting outside in the fresh air and getting some exercise. I guess the Wii Fit gave me the excuse to start getting some now I'm looking to increase my activity wherever I can. It's a good thing.. I lose some weight and get into better shape and I like "ME" Can't hope for someone else to like "ME" if I don't like "ME".

HUGZ to you all!!!!

Moved in and Wii Fit.

I'm all moved into the house and we've had the Housewarming party. It went really well and while not everyone could make it, I had a great time. Thanks to all who did make it and do know that I'm planning a BBQ in June so there is always another chance to be here. (yes invites will be going about here shortly, once I get the date figured out.) Last weekend in June seems promising.... maybe do my own 'Pride' bbq.

For Mothers Day I got Mom a Wii Fit. She had been talking with my Niece Amber (who has a fit) and was really interested in getting one. So this is a good way for her and Dad to get some exercise and hopefully stay active. Chris and I are also getting our time in on the Wii Fit. Let me tell you that Wii fit can kick your ass. You'd think it wouldn't be that bad, but dude it gets me sweating. Step arobics gets you going, finally unlocked the Advanced and damn that's gonna take me a couple of days to get the routine down. Trust me I'm enjoying this. Maybe it's the kick in the pants I need to get more exercise. I've been threatening to get my ass in shape now that I'm in my 40's, I think I'm on the way. It only takes 21 days to change a behavior. I've put in at least 30 mins a day on the Wii fit for the two days we've had it going. I want to keep that record up. So I'm thinking about getting up in the morning and then doing the body test and some step work outs to get my blood flowing.

Any movement is better than no movement. Anything you can do is better than sitting on the couch and watching TV. Thinking you should be doing something but still not doing it. Getting out and walking for 30 minutes...any activity.

Yeah I know I'm up on the health kick again, but I'm really liking it so be ready. Something about buying this house and living in a nice neighborhood, dunno what it is, but sure as hell is better than where I was. I love this place, and love being in my back yard. I love going out front and washing my car. It's just soo nice.

Anyway I'll post more often now, and hopefully have something positive to report on the health front. According to the Wii I'm weighing 186, and a BMI of 24 something... It fluctuates. I'll try to keep a log here. Yes the Wii keeps these statistics for me.

Ok all for now...
HUGZ to you all!!
