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
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
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
Okay, that really isn't a fair thing to say about pizza. Pizza is perfectly fine. It is delicious, scrumptious, filling and something like that can't be evil. Right? Either way, pizza made its way into my belly today because it was brought to work for free. Not just a slice or two, but box after … Continue reading Day 303… Pizza Is Evil
Thursday could have been the prime day for me to wake up and run. It could have been the day I've been wishing for, where I got a good night's rest and woke up for an early morning romp and headed to work. It could have even been the day I set a new PR … Continue reading Day 298… I’m Sorry Smith (Machine) – **Forgot to post**
I'm not much of a person for naps. Generally when I take a nap I feel even worse. There are - of course - times that I am just too tired to not take a nap. And when my wife is feeling under the weather and wants to take a nap herself it just makes … Continue reading Day 291… Nap Power!
