So I have no really good excuses as to why I haven't kept track of what's been going on the past week or so. It's sort of a combination of the back issue, laziness, the gym being closed and whatever else I can come up with. I haven't eaten really well the past few days... … Continue reading Days 138-140… No Excuse
Well, nobody probably noticed my absence, but the back issues from earlier this week have kept me pretty much bed-ridden. Today is the first day back at work since taking nearly 2 full days off (there goes some of my Christmas vacation time) but I don't feel like going into all of the boring details … Continue reading Day 136 & 137… The Writeoffs
Back pain's back, tell a friend... That's right, the wonderful world of back pain has surfaced again. I guess I can honestly say it never went away. But it was painful enough on Tuesday to make me want to not be awake. Unfortunately, I had to spend my 9 hours at work and my time … Continue reading Day 135… Guess What’s Back, Back Again…?
Monday's are slowly becoming the best day of the work week. Why? My schedule. I got things arranged that - for the time being - I have a nice early day on Monday. That gives me a chance to sort of "break in" the work week before it really begins on Tuesday. Gives me a … Continue reading Day 134… A Little Hike
So all of this babbling about doing a 5K finally came to a close on Saturday with me actually doing a real life 5K event. The event was put on by AbilityFirst, a non-profit organization who helps disabled people find their abilities. When I got there, I have to admit I was nervous. There were … Continue reading Day 132 & 133… A Real 5K and a Real Sad Day
Friday presented a nice surprise when my girls showed up for the weekend. We played basketball then went and saw the Mortal Instruments movie. It was ok. Then we went to bed. Guess it wasn't much of a first day but my wife and I had to get up early for a 5k on Saturday. … Continue reading Day 131… What a Surprise!
Well, increased my weight a tiny bit but not sure why. Will figure it out soon enough.
I've never been a big breakfast eater. I normally did, especially because my mom would make me some delicious pancakes, but if I didn't have it made for me I really put no effort into eating it myself. When I worked on the graveyard shift, I would eat "breakfast" but that's because I would wake … Continue reading Day 130… A Change for Breakfast

There are times that I just don't want to do something. Maybe that something is important, maybe not. Maybe it's something I think is stupid but I have to do, or maybe it's my OCD kicking in. But no matter the reason, when I don't want to do something but "need" to, I tend to … Continue reading Day 129… Arguin’ With Myself
