This is where it all started a little more than 365 days ago, with a journey I likened to Odysseus’ journey home:
Son of Laertes, of the seed of Zeus, Odysseus of many devices, so it is indeed thy wish to get thee home to thine own dear country even in this hour? Good fortune go with thee even so! Yet didst thou know in thine heart what a measure of suffering thou art ordained to fulfil [to] reach thine own country? ~Calypso to Odysseus (Book V, The Odyssey)
December 26, 2009. This is our first post. We find ourselves at the precipice of a new year carrying a “few” more pounds than last year. We are old pros at New Year resolutions. We renew our fitness goals each year, but what we want to do this year is figure out how to sustain our resolve to lose weight, get in shape, and stay fit. We have given this a lot of thought and we have come up with an answer…accountability. For the next 365 days we will account for ourselves and our actions in this blog. Good days and bad days. We will keep track of our journey – our odyssey to good health in 2010. If you have ever struggled to maintain your fitness goals, please join us. We would love to hear from you.
