Today is going a little better, I think I’ve just been trying to do too much. I’m a bit over committed at the moment so need to do a little schedule clearing. Hopefully tomorrow will be a little better as well and will try and be easier on myself in terms of scheduling.
  2. Thanks! The marriage class is called Dynamic Marraige and it’s based off the book His Needs Her Needs by Willard Harley. It’s based off the premise that everyone has a Love Bank that can either be filled or emptied by the activities of a significant other and the 10 different emotional needs to help keep their Love Bank full. There is also a companion book called Love Busters that covers more on how to avoid emptying your partners Love Bank. This is a rough overview that I’ve gleaned from the introduction and first couple of chapters, so far it seems really interesting and beneficial. The class itself has a workbook and there is about 30 minutes of homework each night reading the book, listening to talks, and a meeting once with other couples to talk about what we’ve learned. It’s supposed to go on for 9 weeks. So far I’ve been pretty impressed with the quality of information and the pragmatic approach on how to foster relationships. Will report more on it as the class goes on if yall are interested.

It was a weird day. Started off with a mens Bible study at my church (part of my goal to get more involved in my faith community) at 6:30am, a long than normal day at work, then a marriage class Mrs. ReturnOfTheDad and I are doing from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, so it was more or less a 14 hour day with all activities. Not sure if I need to make Tuesday my rest day for exercise or what. Will give it another week or two before making any decisions. The rest of the day was a blur. Everyone wanted something and I didn’t get everything done that I wanted to including evening workout. Trying to keep it together and just try to catch up tomorrow. Rough day.

No running this morning due to a busy work schedule today and starting some early morning community activities with church. May try to do a make up cardio session later in the week.

The 40 hour fast worked INCREDIBLY well. I was definitely hungry but with the coffee and lots of water I was able to maintain reasonable energy and was able to clear the water weight that had been fluctuating. This leaves me at a total of 6lbs lost for the week. Looking forward to seeing if I can maintain that progress. Until I reach my target weight goal I think Sunday/Rest Day fasts are going to be part of the regimen. Daily Music Motivation: Le Castle Vania - John Wick Mode
  6. It is definitely a tough market but some gems do pop up. I’m sure something will come up and hoping you find the perfect home!

I picked up another pound from yesterday. Pretty sure it’s water weight but need to figure out another component to continue shedding pounds. I’ve been reading more about weekly fasting, specific on rest days. Trying a 40 hour fast from Saturday evening to Monday morning to try and reset my system. I hear there are all kinds of benefits like increased HGH, lower bad cholesterol, higher good cholesterol, and less inflammation. Big challenge is going to be just plain hunger. So we’ll see how it goes.

Didn’t make it to bed as early as I would have liked to last night and had a heavy late night workout that may have effected the way I slept. Weight is coming back down, goal is to be at 240 by Monday but I’ve already lost 3 pounds this week, so not doing too bad. Last day of Spanish for this week, have tomorrow off. In some ways I feel like I did pretty good, in other ways I’m still lost. I don’t have a set learning plan yet with my tutors. Still in an assessment phase, which I suppose is normal. Just going to enjoy the rest tomorrow (from language, reading, and workouts) and get back to things on Monday. Daily Music Motivation: Tedashii- We came to play:

Weight slipped a bit, since I didn’t exercise yesterday, going to try and make up for it later in the week. In other news, WE GOT A HOUSE! Our realtor came through big time and found us a new build right in our price range (if a little high), but there was one left in the floor plan we liked so we pulled the trigger and should be in the new place by March or April depending on the build time. It’s a weird thing to be moving into a house we’ll own. Lots of steps and very expensive (most expensive thing we’ve bought/finances to date). But feeling in a good place for it. Hopefully we can finally start building some home equity. Had work calls starting at 7am. Knocked out 2 workouts in the afternoon instead of my typical fasted cardio in the morning. Did Legs then elliptical and somehow made it through. On to tomorrow. Daily Music Motivation: Masked Wolf - Work
