Deckard Gainz Posted January 2, 2018 Report Share Posted January 2, 2018 Let's do this. Actually, I'll be doing something a little different this year. I'm leaving behind the tradition of using the beginning of a new year to tackle existential threats. I’m starting with a side quest. Late last year, around September or October, I signed on with a small publisher to illustrate a children’s book. It’s a passion project more than anything, but I do have official deadlines, one of which I’ve already missed. I got an extension, but now that we are beyond the fun of the holidays and into the bleak and awful portion of winter, it’s time to hunker down and work. I’ve got about 2 months to complete it, so I’m hoping to do line work this month and coloring next month. Diet and exercise will still play a major role in my achieving my long-term goals, and will still be part of my challenge, but won’t be as intense of a focus. I’m hoping I’ve built enough routine and discipline that these will be the easier of the goals. I’m keeping this simple, just going to post with updates whenever I can. The reality is, my diet and exercise are working. But they are working very, very slowly compared to my relative patience. I'm hoping to "set it and forget it" so to speak, by checking the boxes and not paying too much attention to the scale or the mirror for a while.
