Time and Consistency

My recovery day may be extending into two. Woke up this morning feeling like hell. According to my CPAP machine and my Fitbit show that I slept well, but it sure doesn't feel like it.

Newton’s law, staying in motion, and staying accountable.

Yesterday was a record breaking day for me. It was the first day that I logged over 20,000 steps. By the end of the day I definitely felt every step. I was tired.

The thing that sucks is I don't know what the trigger was for this slide. Things have been going well. Work has been keeping me … Continue reading War with myself

July 1, a retrospective on the first six months of 2019.

Losing Brenda in February, my subsequent hospital admission in March, some changes at the work, and the loss of friends causing me to attend more funerals this than I have been at in the last 10 … Continue reading July 1, a retrospective on the first six months of 2019.
