I felt like there were some outstanding items I need to clear up for the sake of your sanity, fellow bloggers and Looking for Chris enthusiasts (I KNOW that one is a stretch!!) I know you lay awake at night wondering how I am doing on certain topics I’ve written about, but you are just too shy to ask.
First: I quit being a quitter – the no caffeine thing lasted about 5 days and the no drinking thing – probably about the same. I do think that I have cut back on both – I KNOW this to be the case. So . . . . moderate success and work in progress on this one. What can I say, I love beer and I love coffee.
Second: My wife and I are still in marriage counseling – though i haven’t posted an update for a while since we haven’t been in a while. We have an appointment next week.
Third: I’m still on the Fat Boy (and the Slow Boy) program at work. I sort of quit updating my Workout Log, but rest assured I am working out. I logged 10 miles running in the last week (not stellar, but it’s 3 runs over 3 miles each) plus a day with weights. The down side: I haven’t lost ANY weight. This is a problem!! I just love beer too much. And food too!
My son, The Sailor (who i haven’t let you meet yet – but perhaps you will meet his this week), asked me how my training was coming. He gets it because he’s in the Navy – I told him, “So, So.” He asked with a little chuckle and a worried tone. “What are you going to do? Won’t they kick you out [of the Army]?” My response, ” I guess I haven’t thought that through very well.”
Which brings me to #4: Depression Sucks. I don’t feel like doing much, and more importantly perhaps, I can’t really think ahead or problem solve too well. But I am actively looking for solutions.
Finally, fellow bloggers and curiosity enthusiasts. Don’t be so shy!! When you are laying (or is it lying?) awake at night worried about me and wondering what is up in my life, just ask!! Remember, I’m an open book.
Grace and peace!
