Peter DeBetta's blog about programming in SQL Server using technologies such as T-SQL, .NET, CLR, C#, VB, Visual Studio, and SQL Server Management Studio.
A friend and colleague of mine, Caleb Jenkins, has started a fitness challenge (http://calebjenkins.wordpress.com/2009/01/29/official-rules/) and I decided that it was time for me to accelerate my fitness program that I had started in January. As of 9:00 AM on February 1, I weighed in at 201 pounds. My overall and ambitious goal is to lose at least 20 pounds. I hope to lose at least 10 pounds during the month of February. Even if I don’t win the fitness challenge, I will be much better off and will hopefully get to my ultimate goal of staying under 180 pounds.
I worked out on Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday I also helped my 5 year old son attempt to ride his bicycle without training wheels for the first time. My backs hurts from leaning over and catching Chris from falling. I am sore. I am achy. But I am determined. Wish me luck on my road to a healthier lifestyle.
