So once again it’s been over a month since I’ve written anything here. That’s pretty terrible considering the fact that I’d intended on using this blog as a way to keep up with my weight loss struggles and (hopefully) successes. A lot happened in the past month and I’m going to try and not only get caught back up here, but also to be better about blogging here as well. We had a death in the family (Wife’s grandfather), I was sick as a dog (down to 233 at one point) and I just had a vasectomy.
I’ve only got about half of my entries done for Behind the Bar for December 2015 and as of this writing I’ve not added ANYTHING to January 2016. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to fill in all the blanks but I may miss a drink or two… hence the need for more regular blogging.
I had sort of a revelation last night. I need to be healthy.
No, that’s nothing new, but it really hit me last night. I’m nearing 40. I want to be around for a long time not only for my kids but for my Wife. I want to have time to spend with her and only her once the kids are grown and out of the house. I’ve been spending quite a few nights sleeping in the basement recently because I’ve been sick and snoring pretty badly. I’ve got to imagine that the snoring will improve when the belly fat goes away.
Sick of living this life… need to change. Change starts with a decision. I decided today that I’m going to be healthy. I need to make changes and I can only make them day by day.
