I have not blogged in quite some time. It is not because I have fallen off the wagon with any of my goals this year it is simply because I have been very very very busy these days. I completed our Family move to a house that I believe we will be at for many years to come. Our family has moved more than any family should. It is in part to me and my wife's bad financial decision making, my work locations, and the status of my marriage. We are in a good place right now on all three of those fronts and it appears we will be putting a flag in the ground and claim this land.
I am now over 50% of the way to completing this year without drinking and there are so many things I have learned about myself during this time. I would recommend that anyone do this with any vise that you may have and see what you learn about yourself. It has been eye opening. The main thing I realized is all the time I have been wasting… it is amazing how much more time I have for building positive things. The past month has been hard I must say – I have been thinking about wanting to drink but most of it is just simply to relax after a long day or with dinner at a restaurant. These are the small things that I miss right now. The time I have right now needs to be getting myself ready for the final push of this year… The hardest test is yet to come. I have tailgating, all inclusive resort in
, and Christmas/New-years holiday to deal with. I am not going to lie and say I am not worried – especially for the tailgating part. I know nothing else during tailgating but drinking and eating. It will be the hardest challenge I have undertaken in my life next to repairing my marriage. I don’t know how I will make it through. Like I said this time right now will need to be preparing myself for the rest of the year. Day one of the tailgating season is 9/3/11 - less than two months away. Mexico
My weight is 206. This is great considering I have not worked out in a while but I have been working hard moving though… I feel good about where my weight is and I hope to lose another 5 pounds or more over the next few weeks.
I am still doing well and still on track!!! ONWARD!!!
