Something pretty cool happened at the gym yesterday. Last month my wife and I went to the gym doing cardio 3 times a week and weights 2 times a week. This was just to get us into going to the gym and being consistent.
Yesterday was a telling day. My wife and I had taken last week off from the gym and life, because we were ill. It would be so easy to fall into the trap of not caring anymore, but we wanted to get back to where we left off.
A few summers ago, I decided I did not want to continue with my current diet and decided to try the Vegan diet. Technically, the diet I found was a whole food plant based diet. I am not really sure if I kept a strict Vegan diet or if it was more vegetarian, but all the same it consisted of not eating meat or anything dairy related.
Many moons ago, when I was a teenager, my grandmother told me it was time for me to get braces to close the gap in my teeth. I protested by telling her that the gap in my teeth "gave me character."
I am going to try a new diet starting today. It is one I do often and I want to try it again for the month of October. It is the Slow Carb diet made famous by Tim Ferris in the 4-hour body.
Since I joined the gym 3 weeks ago, my wife and I have been going regularly. I am not sure we are seeing much of a difference weight wise, but things seem to be tightening up and I am starting to feel like I have a little more energy.

July and August have not been good months with regards to finance and health. To recount the last update, our furnace and A/C units gave out and we had to finance $8,000 to purchase units.
