Alas, I failed my attempt at a daily post. It is pretty difficult, considering the fact that I have really little to no creative juice flowing the last two to three days. I had a few topics that I wanted to write about, but I found it hard to expound. I tried writing a draft, but all I did was go on and on around the topic and it looked more like a conversation between me and a tape recorder. I have to ease through this daily routine thing.
Speaking of daily routines, someone told me that one of our former “fat” colleagues now looks svelte (I said “fat” because to me, he looks okay. I always thought he had the right weight for his height). Turns out that he and his partner, one of the directors in the company, are now more physically active and both are in the “best shape of their lives” (sic).
I did a little more probing and found out that they are more consistently working out, running, eating better, and just basically doing everything that they can to look better. I envy these people so much! I am also looking for ways to improve my overall health, and gain a little more weight. I have been working out “for years” now, with only the littlest gains to show as proof, because I haven’t been able to do it as consistently as I need. Most often than not, I will be able to work out once a week. The problem is work. I spend more time in the office than anywhere else. I can’t say that’s an entirely a bad thing. It keeps food on the table and it helps pay the bills, but I would have wanted more extra-curricular activities. Especially now that I am about to have a son, I wouldn’t want him to think that his dad is too scrawny.
I have to find out how I can manage my time better. But with all the things happening right now, I don’t think that’ll happen. My fiancee is pregnant, so I have to stay in the office longer than I already have, and go home with her, and to make sure she is safe. Enrolling in Gold’s Gym, which is literally just a few steps away from the office is an option, but it is just too damn expensive.
So, I guess I already failed two things this year. Not the best way to start the year, but hopefully I won’t fail anything else.
