My original purpose of this blog was to keep track of all of my "Things To Do" before my life expires. You know... stuff to do before you kick the bucket. Well people - here's my Bucket List or shall I say "Tabo" List. You only live once, so don't think twice.

One of my favorite tools I have been using towards my goal of Rock Hard Abs is the Daily Plate application on LIVESTRONG.COM.  It tracks down my calories and fitness activities.  I love it.  Initially, I started doing it back in May 2009.  Being that I get easily distracted, I kind of, uh sort of stopped keeping track.  Maybe because I started eating  junk food galore these past six months.  Bright side of it all (The start of the optimism era) is that I'm back in the habit of doing it.  I started doing it last Monday.  And guess what?  To date, I have lost THREE pounds.  That's in like a week's span.  Ain't that great?  Originally, I was aiming at a target weight loss of 2 pounds per week.   Having lost that extra pound makes me want to push myself even more.  Exercising has been good.  Walking the dog has been good, too.  Next step I have to commit to is seriously changing the way I eat.  During my week of tracking all my food intake via LIVESTRONG.COM, I've noticed that I've consumed far too many grams of sodium and sugar than I should.  Every day, I've been exceeding my daily recommendation allowance.  Eeks.  Gary a.k.a The Fitness Tech (TFT) said that's probably why I have so much fat surrounding my core.  It's just hella lounging there.  That's just wrong.
