I don't have time.

Let's see how this goes considering my arms are not functioning properly. When I leave for work I will be away from the house for over 14 hours. That's a pretty good stretch unless I'm working overtime then we're talking 17 hours a day. I know you're wondering WTH does he do? It involves government contracts. Anyways, I'm not sure where my recent motivation has come from but I'm thoroughly enjoying it! I guess it could be from the last two weeks of eating very clean. I'm feeling so much better when I eat this way. Another motivator is the upcoming beach trip! I just realized I have successfully made it two consecutive weekends and didn't fall or jump off the wagon! I feel in control of more of my life just by fixing my lunch every day. More structure in my daily routine. A while back I started to purposely lock my wallet in the glove box during work. It really helped me stay away from the cafeteria and vending machine boxes of death. I kept a promise to myself this morning when I got home. The promise was to exercise! I didn't even change clothes. I checked on my family like i usually do and headed straight to the shop. Turned on some music and practiced my form with the barbell. I had to dust off the bench. It's been that long ago. I did a few sets to failure then went inside to the Bowflex. I did some lat pull downs and bicep curls. My arms were done! I put away my Ipod and hit the shower. I found it extremely difficult to work a wash cloth and bar of soap together. But I felt accomplished! Knowing I'm on my way to feeling even better. I think it has finally clicked that I have to make it happen. Nobody but me. So as I write this blog F sleeps next to me. I will fall asleep for the next hour tucking with him. Then be woken up by F saying, "daddy it's time!" Which means it's time to help him brush his teeth and do our little airplane routine. Put him in his car seat and send him off to school and my wife to work. All crawl back in bed and grab maybe 4 or 5 hours and do it all over again! So if I can find the time I believe you can too. Have an awesome day and stay positive! :)
