Yesterday was Labor Day here in the US, which made it a day off work for me. As a result, I didn’t even think about writing a blog entry. I was too busy taking the day off. Assuming you understand “taking the day off” to mean “running a bunch of errands”. Because life, sadly, does not always cooperate with the idea of “day off”.
You may have noticed that, once again, I wasn’t wildly successful last week. No real excuses – I just didn’t try very hard. I’m back in what I described last year as the “goaldrums”, that feeling like “why should I bother?” Which isn’t feeling great. Fortunately, I think I’ll be breaking out of those goaldrums this week. Why? Because my wife and I are making a bit of a contest out of hitting our goals now. And I do like some competition. Best of all, it’s a cooperative competition, which sounds ridiculous but really just means that it is possible for both of us to win.
I have no plans to lose.
What this means, of course, is that I should be back on track starting this week. Defined as “back under 300 pounds” and “hitting all of my exercise goals”. I’m excited about this already.
