Lordy, Lordy, look who’s forty!
And I get to bask in all this reflected glory because he’s my little brother!
Happy birthday, Steven! I love you!— 29-Jul-17
It is so easy to get off-track when you’re not focused.
Unfortunately, I did lose my focus these past couple of weeks. It started with me thinking that I could get away with skipping out on just one update so that I could go to North Carolina the week of July 14-16. While I don’t regret the trip, I do regret the mental laziness because it started me down the wrong path.
But I have to give some credit to my supervisor here. She issued a two-week weight loss challenge this week, and despite me knowing there is no way I can win it (it’s based on percentages, which is fair but puts me at a disadvantage), I recognized it for the opportunity it was. Re-focusing on one item reminds me that I have a good routine developed — if I can simply stick to it.
That is the plan for this next week. And, even off-track, I’ve made a few accomplishments.
