|At times we think a change will do us good, but sometimes being to true to yourself is best.|
Not really, but sometimes I think it would be cool to go to the extreme and just go wild and do a complete make over, but even though I've deduced the identity of Batman, being Hugo Strange is not really me.
You may have noticed some changes around the Batcave Toy Room as I attempt to clean up around here a little bit, but as I clean up the site I also have been cleaning up myself as well. There isn't a need to do a complete makeover. Just get back to the basics and be who I am again.
My friend Corey Sorenson over The Brave and the Old has been a bit of an inspiration for me to shape up. I used run at least six miles a day and worked out at least twice a week, but over the past seven years or so that all dried up. It would seem that marriage and having a family have caused me to become a ball of flab, but that is just an excuse. My family is the best thing that ever happened to me. I just need to get moving again.
To keep me accountable to start exercising again, I've enlisted my seven employees to join me on the fitness bandwagon. I've equipped my staff with pedometers and we've established a few goals that consist of:
- Walking at least 56,000 steps a week.
- 140 minutes of moderate intensity exercise a week or 75 minutes/week of vigorous intensity activity
- Attempt to lose 1-2 pounds a week
Sometimes you may feel you just want to control-alt-delete your life and start over, but really all you need to do is follow your inner voice and do what you know is right for you. So for me, I'm taking my steps, eating right, and have began running again. After all, I have unitards I need to be able to fit into.
