Back to basics

I've been really trying to get some activity in during the day, walking, yoga, etc. Unfortunately I have not been consistent nor have I done it enough. I still spend far, far too much time sitting on my ass. So as I was laying in bed last night, I thought about every other time I've lost weight. What did I do that got me started? How did I start? What were the most basic things I did to get going? I need to know. I need to figure out how to start and once I get going I will develop momentum, but I need to start. Then it hit me, Karen Voight. Every time I went to lose weight and was successful, I started with Karen Voights video. It is an hour long and I really, really like it. I don't have a copy of it anymore, but I found it on the internet. So I'm going to do that today. Walking is good and all, but I think I need something more than just walking. So I'm going to give it a try and see what happens. If I can do it for the next week or so, it might be just the pus…

Moving is crazy

Moving is crazy. Moving across an ocean is flat out nuts. When moving there are so many things to remember. When moving across an ocean there are even more. There are things like, where is my mail going to go? I leave this house on the 25th of June and don't have a real address again until the house I am buying closes on July 13th. Where does my mail go between now and then? Luckily I figured out how to open a PO box in Arizona from Hawaii. So now at least I know where my mail is going.

Then there is the money issue. We will be getting over $200,000 from the house and it will go into our Hawaii account. In order to buy the house in AZ I will need a cashier's check for $105,000. How do I get a cashier's check on money that is in Hawaii when I am in AZ. I opened an account in AZ last night, I just hope it all works. If it does, the accounts are hooked up and we will be able to transfer money back and forth. Fingers crossed.

While writing this, I had to stop and call an in…
