Health and YouTube Challenge

Apparently I am a sucker for punishment because in between taking care of my mother and working on getting some projects and other sources of income, I have decided to give myself a health challenge and a YouTube Challenge.  What is going on?  Read on.

I was trying to get my mother in the tub to assist her in bathing and not only did she only get water in her face, I ended up with a sore back.  My tailbone is killing me and I realize it is because I am so out of shape.  For the last couple of years, I have concentrated on everyone’s health and happiness.  Then last year, I decided to take advantage of the gym in my apartment complex.  Just when I was starting to get used to going at least three times a week, I got the call from Puerto Rico.  I dropped everything and flew down just to find out my dad was in the hospital in really bad shape.  I did not exercise after that (except for a couple of bad attempts I really did not put much effort into).  I sweat off 15 pounds and with my fabulous adrenaline and ice cream diet, gained 20 more for a whooping 235 pounds.  I am not healthy and I am not happy, like I mentioned on another blog post.  So now what?

I started walking.  Yesterday I went around the block once.  Today, I was able to go around the block three times.  Then we loosely measured the distance with the car and it turns out that it is 0.1 of a mile.  I need to go around ten times to walk one mile.  My goal for the month of March is to walk around ten times.  Let us see how that goes.

Not happy with what seems like a big enough challenge, I decided to take back a challenge I wanted to do last year.  I started out a 100 day challenge and everything was going well until my dad took a turn for the worse and I abandoned the goal.  So, as you can see, I created a video and I started the challenge yesterday.

So what challenges have you decided to tackle this week?  Leave your comment below the video.  Thanks.
