Hitting targets….like a bird into a window.

So I have been trying to lose weight. At my heaviest several months ago I was around 270lbs.

The weekend was busyish, with play practice, a hockey tournament, church, etc. This week has been pretty slow, though. My evenings are pretty much shot though. Meeting Monday night, play practise tonight, tea with a friend tomorrow night, … Continue reading Limits aren’t an option, they are a necessity.
