The Snowball Effect

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

These past couple of weeks have not been good for me. My back problems have kept me from doing some of the things that have helped me drop poundage, I've found myself reverting back to old eating habits, and I can feel myself losing interest in this whole process. Being unemployed, hustling for scraps, a new baby, and my son going to high school in a year with no way to pay for it (He is NOT going to the local public high school if it kills me) has started wearing on me and I'm not afraid to admit it. In this economy, I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here, but whatever.

However, I've decided to REALLY buckle down this week...just this week. If I look further down the road, I'll get overwhelmed with all of it and just give up; I know me. So this week, I'm really going to kick some ass. My back is better, I'm feeling pretty good, the fridge is stocked with all the good stuff I need, and my wife is looking so radiant that she could inspire the devil himself to do good! I love you baby!
