Autumn is finally here. Here are a few photo reminders.

Fall Scene
This photo is taken on a fairly high hill, from a cemetery actually.

Fall Tree This is one of the reddest trees I saw, and its background is one of the bluest skies I have seen. I also was sure to position the quilt of color in the lower right hand corner.

Fall Fence Scene This is a fence at a local state park. I like it because you can clearly appreciate that this is a fall scene from the multi-colored leaves in the background.

Fitday and Trying to Lose Weight

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

I am trying to take off a few pounds, and as everybody knows, laziness comes easy for most of us. I have been using Fitday Online for awhile now. However, I decided to pay 20.00 for their software I can use anytime. Plus the software has extra features. I can log my food, activity, mood, and so forth. Plus, since I paid 20 dollars for it, I will definitely use it. I have a tendency to use the things I pay for.

I am finding that my diet is interesting. It tends to be high in fiber, Vitamin E, Selenium, and Magnesium, which are all very good things. It is low in vitamin D, Calcium, and Vitamin C, and too high in calories and sodium. I am not much of a milk drinker, although I do get some Calcium from my daily lunch yogurt. I am going to try to work this out.

On a related note, I took the Real Age Test, and I came out at a real age of 23. That is five years younger than I am, which is kind of nice to know. I can still get it lower if I make a few changes, and I intend to. I am not obessed with looking young per se, but I am concerned with feeling young and having my body be young. I would love to avoid the troubles that come with old age if possible: heart disease, cancer, obesity, joint pain, etc. I honestly believe that diet, exercise, and moderation help prevent many of these problems, and I intend to prevent them as much as possible.
