Or not. I honestly don't understand the reason we let companies walk all over us when it comes to deliveries and services. "We will show up between 10 AM and midnight, so make sure someone is at home during that time." I guess we have no choice since pretty much any company does it, so … Continue reading Days 324 & 325… Special Delivery
Oh how I wish I could have slept in Saturday morning. I don't always want to sleep in... okay, that is a lie. I always want to sleep in but I almost never get to. Waking up before 5 AM during the week and then doing karate or races on Saturday limits me to one … Continue reading Days 321 & 322… Crazy Woman!
So I was so incredibly busy that I didn't get a change to post my blog for Thursday. I'm sure that the entirety of the world was missing it. But here it is combined with Friday's information. I was very glad that I decided to go back to karate on Thursday. I still feel the … Continue reading Days 319 & 320… C-c-c-combo Breaker!
After thinking about it all day long and discussing it with my sensei and others I've decided to stick out my karate for the time being. I will not do what we did on Tuesday (at least not until I am ready) and will tell others to back off if necessary, but I enjoy the … Continue reading Day 318… One More Shot
Tuesday's karate class was the first time I thought to myself, "do I want to stick this out?" To start off, let me say that I don't think of myself as a weakling. Nor do I mind some pain. I played football, baseball, basketball, wrestling and did track & field for many years. I ran … Continue reading Day 317… Karate Kicked My Ass
I'm not sure where I saw this. It was probably one of my friends on Facebook who likes to post motivational stuff. But wherever it was that I saw it, I actually told myself that I completely agreed. It seems if you miss Monday (or your version of Monday) it makes it that much easier … Continue reading Day 316… Never Miss a Monday
This truly has been a crazy week.It all started out with my hair-brained idea to get a dog (which - consequently - completely loves my wife and ignores me) which chewed up all of Monday. Then there was the lack of sleep on Monday and Tuesday along with karate. Then on Wednesday was the exchange … Continue reading Day 312… What a Week
This happens to me occasionally. Whether it's waking up to exercise early, going to the gym after work or going to my karate classes... there are times where I just simply am not in the mood to do it. Those are the times that I struggle with myself. I don't usually have a reason to … Continue reading Day 310… Not In The Mood
That's about all that Thursday was. It was Thursday. It wasn't Wednesday, it wasn't Friday, it was simply Thursday. Fairly busy day at work which is normal, television and dinner preparations between work and karate, and then 2 hours of karate in the evening. This is where I start trying to figure out how to … Continue reading Day 305… Thursday
Since I've moved to karate and weight lifting lately, I've sort of neglected the running. I know I've been trying to get up early in the morning to run but I've not been committed enough to actually do it lately. Guess that needs to change. I've committed to doing two 5K events over the next … Continue reading Day 304… Gotta Get Back To Running
