Excuses, I'm loaded with them


So it's been almost 10 days since I posted. In that time, the container arrived and left, we unloaded and unpacked, and life has kept moving on. School is good. I'm finding that I like the block scheduling. There are some days when 90 minutes seems rather excessive, but overall I like it a lot. I freaking love have only 4 classes a day. Do you have any idea how awesome that is? Especially when 2 of the 3 are the same. Awesome!!!! In the middle of both days, A and B, I have these huge breaks that I actually get stuff accomplished in. It is just amazing. So school is going really well and I think I'll be quite happy there.

What have I not been doing? Working out. I went on Friday and joined Crossfit. I couldn't finish the workout on Friday due to some intestinal distress, but I haven't been back since. I keep saying I'm going to go but then I don't. I have tons of excuses as to why I don't do. Let's see. I'm tired - an oldie but a goody. My feet are tired - right, because that has never happened before. My feet hurt - could that be the 200+ lbs you are carrying around? My brain is fried - Crossfit doesn't require thinking, just doing. Anyway, the point is, I'm sick of listening to myself and letting myself down. I know that it will be tough for a while. I know that I will be tired and sore and it will not be easy. I also know that I will adjust. I'll end up being less tired if I go than if I stay home. My energy levels will increase and I will sleep better. I know all this. I know it. So what if my problem? Laziness, old age, whatever. I'm over it. Time to put on my big girl pants and deal with it. What do I want? Do I want to have energy to do things or do I want to lay around the house being lazy? What do I want?

Time for bed now. I need to get a lot of sleep because tomorrow I AM going to crossfit.

Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
