Well, I took my first step in an exercise program this morning..I ran about a mile after stretching out. Now all I have to do is keep it up for about another year. Making it until the end of the week seems like a good short-term goal, however. The good news is that I made it a lot farther than I expected to make it…the bad news is that I’m still horribly out of shape. (I can still feel it now, two and a half hours later.)

So here is the plan:
Run at least a mile every weekday morning. (after stretching)
Eat less, and try to go out to eat less. (this is going to be hard with all of my friends in town right now)

But I’m feeling very strongly about doing this, so I think I’ll be okay. I suppose it’s time I follow another one of Sensei’s teachings: “Get in shape once, and stay there.”
