Nobody wants to be out of shape, fat and borderline really unhealthy. Even a devoted slob like me was uncomfortable with the way I had let my health go over the years. But I leaned into my appetites as a reward for all the hours I put in working inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office. And I just drifted deeper and deeper into being totally out of shape. But living like that gets dangerous at some point. So about a year and half ago, I really made my first commitment to getting healthy. Instead of going to the taco truck and eating four burritos at my desk for lunch, I got out of the air conditioning and went for a walk. And when I came home, instead of plopping down in the recliner inside the central air conditioning of my home, I went for another walk. It was just these little changes that made such a big difference. After a few months of this behavior I really started to focus in on portion control and a healthier diet. That was pretty tough as I love eating bad foods and drinking beer. But I think the toughest part was the exercise. I’ve never been much of an athlete and I hate exercise. I tried the gym but that didn’t last even 2 months because I just didn’t go. So my wife created a home gym in the basement to ensure that we both got our exercise. I even had the HVAC company come out and install a ductless heat pump so we’re working out in air conditioning heaven.
