The Struggle is Real

General / 26 February 2021


For 20 years I have been working as a graphic designer and website developer. And for 20 years I have let my health go extremely bad. I have put on 50 pounds of unwanted weight over those years.

So now that I have lost my job due to Covid-19, I have plenty of time to read, draw, and now exercise to get back into shape. But I’ve gotta be honest, it’s hard as hell. I can barely walk without my knees aching all night.

The wife and kids bought me a dog to go on walks so I can stay motivated, so far I can report that it’s working. Ben and I have been walking one mile per day for two weeks now. I haven’t lost any weight, but my heart rate has gone down, and my breathing has improved. So that’s good.
