I thought I'd share some behind the scenes photos of our video shoot. I spent two days with a great crew and Miyagi (who was also great lah), filming the videos.
When I first started working on the project, I had already some idea of how to keep myself healthy. I lost a lot of weight in 2006 because I had to. My doctor told me I was obese and was at risk of hypertension and I had sleep apnea. When I hit my forties, my metabolism slowed down and now I find I have to work twice as hard to keep the weight off and the fitness up.
It was challenging to keep an eye on my dietary habits, especially since I was traveling so much this year. And getting time to exercise was also a problem. But being conscious of the need to do so is already half the battle, and the HLI helped me focus on the things that mattered: getting enough veggies and fruit, getting enough exercise, and getting enough SLEEP (that one is my biggest problem).
The change doesn't come overnight but this is a long term commitment and you can be sure that I will keep at it, modifying my habits till I reach the right level of healthy. I have to anyways, I promised the wife I would.
