| Welcome to my musings about fitness
on the Web. Since becoming single again in 2002, getting in
shape has become a passion for me. Even though I have only been
partially successful in my fitness goals, I keep on trying,
and like many of you, I want to share my successes and failures.
By communicating with you, we can encourage each other to work
out harder, achieve discipline, and make positive changes in
our behaviors that will lead us to live longer and happier lives.
This journal is not just about physical fitness, but it's
about emotional and spiritual fitness too. The mind and body
are not separate systems, but they work together, each having
an impact on the other. I may feel the need to share feelings
and emotions with you as well. Of course, bearing my soul
to the entire world is risky business. So it's important that
I show good judgment and reveal only those aspects of my inner
self that are appropriate for this type of forum.
This fitness journal is a mirror of the AOL blog I started
recently entitled "Basketball Diaries." I'll post
content in both places to reach the largest audience. In fact
my first entry here will consist of the content I have already
posted, just to get everyone caught up. I hope the journal
is a valuable resource for you. If anything, this journal
will let you know there is another person out there in the
world dealing with the same issues as you, struggling with
those aspects of the modern world that conspire to make us
flabby, physically and emotionally. Feel free to share through
your email program, and if in my editorial wisdom and with
your permission, you'd like to see your comments online, I'll
post them for the world to see.
