Quick Update 6/4/2013

It’s been too long since I last updated this shit.  As always, I have a lot to talk about but not enough time to tell it.  I’d feel sorry about it except I don’t.  Oh, I don’t know, maybe a bit.  Mostly selfishly.  I mean, when I update on a regular, a lot more people come to my stupid blog.  A much smaller percentage of you are bots when I keep to the schedule and have regular updates.  So yeah, it is kind of a bummer when I don’t update.  But… it’s free… and it’s really about my life, so… fuck off.

So here’s what’s going on with me.  It’s Tuesday morning.  I’m in my boxers, eating a salad for breakfast – yes, a salad – and I’m trying to convince myself to wrap this up as quickly as possible so I can go lift weights.  I don’t really want to lift weights, but know that I need to.  I’m back on my weight loss initiative that went awesome last year but has been dragging this year.  That’s why the salad for breakfast.  That’s why the need to lift.  Running has, oddly, become my favorite exercise.  Actually, re-become my favorite.  Long story short, I was in the military back in the day and I would unwind by going for a pretty long run, especially on weekends.  Then I left the military and got really fat and blah blah now I’m 30 so everything is difficult and parts hurt.  Lifting was briefly my favorite exercise.  Now I’m less into it (’cause of the thing where parts hurt), but lifting is a really great fat burner, so… I need to buck up and just do it.

But whatever, we have plenty of time for me to bitch about my weight.  I’m a fat guy at heart, so even if I do get my military body back and have some semblance of abs again, I will always struggle with my weight.  I should make that a weekly feature – “Today is Tuesday, and I’m going to whinge on about my moobs…”

What else has been going on with me…?  It’s odd, there are times when I feel like I’m so busy I can barely take a moment to rest.  Other times, I feel like I have so much free time that I’m almost overwhelmed.  That’s kind of stupid, right?  I’ve almost completely tackled this phenomenon at work.  I clearly have too much work to get done in the allotted time, to the point where I take work home and sometimes pop into the office on the weekend, but I never feel overwhelmed about it.  I’ve figured out how to balance it all pretty well, and I’m starting to realize that sometimes you just have to say “no” to new tasks.  Sometimes you can’t just say no, but you at least can say, “Hey, no really, I already have A, B, and C on my plate and won’t be able to finish those early, so if you add X, Y, and Z, then you and I need to prioritize these and pick which you really need done.”  I get stuff done and do a good job with it.

At home, I haven’t quite figured this out.  Part of the problem is that, on weekends, if I’m not out with friends or family I pretty much just check out of society.  I just chill out, either home or around town, and effectively do jack all.  Week nights, I’m either worn out or wound up, and I find myself wasting time just trying to take a load off.  It’s always been tough for me to balance my home life, but man… I’m too old for that.  I don’t know, I’m rambling and I really need to go to work.  Guess I’ll see if I can convince myself to lift when I get back home.

tl;dr – Salad for breakfast, work is busy but good, and I’m no good at “off time”

Yo’, have I ever got a story about some dumb shit I did last month.  If I can convince myself to take the time, I’ll be sure to put it down here.
