It's been a couple of years since I've been around these parts.


2018 was a year of changes for me Namely:

  • I officially became a parent with the adoption of my first progeny, Bee. My second daughter, AJ, will be adopted some time this year. They have both lived with us since the middle of 2017.  
  • We also have 3 other fosters, so we currently have 5 progeny total. 
  • I got a new job. I was formerly teaching the youngest progeny at the College of Dynamics in Rata Sum for the past 9+ years. I now oversee technology throughout the entire University. 


As a result, my health and fitness have fallen by the wayside. I've gained over 60 lbs in the past two years, and I am struggling finding time to work out. With 2019, I am trying to find more balance in my life, between work, family, and self-care. Here are my goals for January: 


Fitness: Work out 4x a Week

My current workout plan combines kickboxing, weightlifting, yoga, and bodyweight exercises. During these 4 weeks, I will concentrate on showing up. I have my workouts scheduled with my coach on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sometimes I don't feel like working out, and that's OK. What matters is that I show up on those 4 days and do what I can. 


By February, 2019, I will: show up to work out 4x a week, no excuses. Loot (80% compliance or higher): New Pull-Up Bands


Nutrition: No Eating Past 7pm

I do a pretty good job during the day, especially when I am busy. However, after we put the kids to bed, it all goes out the window and I find myself gorging on cheese, chips, and candy. For this challenge, I will look for other activities to help me relax, such as painting my nails, doing peel-off masks, and drawing. 


By February, 2019, I will eat only between the hours of 11am and 7pm. Loot (80% compliance or higher): New tea kettle


Family: Cook 6 Nights a Week

With 5 kids, we can't really afford a lot of takeout, and it isn't good for us anyway. Between my wife and I, we will cook at home 6 nights a week. If we don't feel like it, we can have a rotisserie chicken night. 


By February, 2019, we will cook dinner at home almost every night. Loot (average 6 nights per week or more): Date night! 


Self-Care: Exfoliate

I was given a facial just before Christmas, and it was kind of a disaster. A nice lady attacked my face with a blunt instrument and told me that I have clogged, large pores :( So one of my goals for 2019 is to take better care of my skin. 


By February, 2019, I will exfoliate 2 times per week and wash and moisturize my face every day. Loot (80% compliance or higher): Clear skin + a new mask or beauty tool
