5 months and counting 

It’s been 19 weeks since I got a new defibrillator. 


I was in Boston on December 29,2016, getting a new device for my heart condition. 

I was worried about the procedure, although it’s fairly routine now. 

I was also concerned about the gains and release of weight I had experienced from August 28-December 29th. It was the most focused I’ve ever been. I lost weight during the holiday season. Who does that? Not many and I had NEVER done that. But I’ve been following Bill Phillips plan since August, which has been tremendous. 

I’m still following it. I took a month off from lifting after the procedure. 

Then in February I slowly reintroduced weights. No need to mess up my device. In March I continued to work my way back up. 

The weight that was lost last year is no where to be found. I’m thankful for that. 

5 months and counting. Okay, technically 19 weeks but close enough. 


As I go through 2017 there are so many dates in my head. I’m thinking about where I was last year at this time, and where I am right now! I’m thankful. 

We need to be good stewards of all things and that includes our bodies. 

One day at a time. One hour at a time. One minute at a time. One second at a time. Everyday counts. Every workout counts. 

Let’s do this! 

I CAN DO and SO CAN YOU. Life is all about having the right kind of attitude. We will face challenges. We have to decide how we will respond. Getting an ICD (Internal Cardio-Verter Defibrillator) in 2010 forced me to make a decision about my mindset. I decided that I CAN DO. What about you? Let's go.
