So as many of you know I had a stint in the hospital a few months back, before that I had started losing weight. I had been trying to get back to where I was when my wife and I were dating. Well since I have been out of the hospital and my diet has changed for the better I have lost about 35 pounds, all total I have lost 55 pounds putting me about 7 pounds from my ideal weight of 215. Since I have a child coming I have been really motivated to improve my lazy ass, these past three weeks I have been lifting weights again and walking about a mile and a half a day. I am trying to get myself back into the shape I was in when I was involved in amateur mma, needless to say I have a ways to go.
I have also been trying to improve my mind, I have been teaching myself to write left handed, I am also in the process of learning my ancestral language, welsh, and I have been revisiting many of the old works of philosophy I was once more familiar with. Anyway I was wondering if any of my fellow totseans had more ideas on ways to expand my mind, cool skills to learn, or just general advice?
