The first of 100 tries

Many administrative and communication things annoy me about the martial arts organization I was in, but I am still an adherent to the philosophies they espoused. I still believe that "honor, courtesy, integrity, perseverance (my favorite), self-control, courage and community" are important. And I always liked the idea of 100 tries - don't say something can't be done until you've tried it 100 times. That is how I feel about the many things I am trying to accomplish with my life - publishing a novel, losing weight, getting back in shape, getting out of debt, getting into a financial comfortable place, etc. - so I've decided to do this blog to give myself a place to work on those 100 tries.

Progress today:
Writing - started this blog, because writing always begets writing.
Weight - in the manner of Bridget Jones, will attempt to record eating. Today ate: sausage, egg and cheese mcmuffin, sausage and egg biscuit, medium Diet Coke (caffeinated), bbq and cheese burger at Chili's, 1/3 of the fries, four itty bitty Butterfingers, two scoops of rice, two mini meatloaves, two Hersheys with Almonds bars (one at dinner, one to follow this), another glass of Diet Coke (no caff)
Shape - nope
Debt - reconciled Amex and Visa cards, have payment plan in place to pay off everything in 59 more months
Financial comfort - nope
