I'm pretty happy today. I just got back from the doctor with a prescription for physical therapy for my right shoulder. The PT really helped my severely strained ankle, so I have high hopes for my shoulder.

More to the point, the last time I was at the doctor's office was in May. That's also the last time I was weighed. I've lost 30 pounds since that last visit! With the weight loss, I've noticed that ukemi drills and overall practice has been easier for me.

I'm not following a specific diet right now, but I'm trying to control my portions and keep my activity level up. A lot of what I'm doing is applying some of what I learned when I went to Weight Watchers. One particularly good strategy is splitting meals with my wife when we go out for dinner. She's thin, and can seldom finish a full restaurant meal anyway. We'll order something we both like and each eat half. We save money that way too!

Of course, regular physical activity helps too. I know a lot of people don't find aikido to be a good work out, but those folks must be thinner, and in better shape than I am. I just had my 30th birthday (on 12/29/03), and I'm really feeling good about my diet, activity level, and the (overall) progress I'm making in aikido. 2033 was a pretty good aikido year, and I hope to do as well, or better, in 2004.
