Competing Against Myself – Day 5

Yesterday my throat started hurting. It got worse and worse until by around 8:00PM I didn't want to speak more loudly than I whisper. I can't afford to fully get sick and miss out on work, so I decided to sleep more and not out additional strain on my body from working out.

Competing Against Myself – Day 2

This is a disaster. I don't know exactly what happened, but I only slept of 2.5-3 hours last night! I almost forced myself to workout, but I thought about it and decided against it. I think that would have been a foolish move.

Garbage In = Garbage Out

On vacation I ate whatever I wanted and didn't exercise once. We went on some walks and did some very mild hiking. It was lovely. I took some time to think about my health and fitness and I decided to make an exercise schedule for myself.


I had a good workout today. One of my favorite aspects of the gym I attend, is how the sense of competition, pushes me to do more and perform better.


Honestly I wanted to be napping write now, but I am addicted to writing, so here I am, writing instead of sleeping. It really is a compulsion. I don't mean that in a deep, artsy way, I mean it in a nearly pejorative way, like how I crack my knuckles too much.

Writing About Writing – Ten

I am done with writing all my poems for the breastfeeding book! I thought I was done. I am done with the poems, but after talking about it with my wife last night I am not ready to move forward just yet.

Realistic Goals

In my previous post, I owned my mistakes and took note of my progress and growth. Today, I would like to set some realistic goals for myself. I am resigned to continuing to write in 10 minute bursts, but I am looking to experiment with how that plays out. I feel like I should narrow my focus a bit to work towards completing my projects as opposed to just writing for its own sake.
