The last year has been horrible physically. I put on weight, but more important, I slowed down. Shows with the band were a strain ... walking across the room was sometimes a strain.
So a couple months ago I started working. Not a lot, mostly walking. I walk a mile and a half around the warehouse every day. I was playing the drums, I have my practice pad set upstairs where I work. There is a room that is a combination recording studio/practice space. I've been working hard.
I'm down about 15 lbs. I am already feeling the difference in my life. And this weekend really showed that the work I have done has paid off.
