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.

Time for a change?

 So I started this little business about 1.5 years ago. The idea was to make a little side business that would keep me busy when I retire. I...
