#75Hard Day 3.

I’m grateful for my kids.


I was worried about today’s workouts and tasks. I have my kids this weekend and wasn’t sure about how it would intermingle with the things they wanted to do or needed me for.

I got up @ 5:30am and did my outdoor workout while they were sleeping.

In a few short days I’ve noticed that I am starting to look forward to the morning workouts.

It’s the peace. I’m alone with my thoughts. Or with a podcast (flip flopping between MFCEO and REAL AF right now). No traffic. No cell phone. No emails. Just me.

And the occasional coyote.

Anyway I managed to get that workout in, take my progress photo/weight,  and get my 10 pages read before they even woke up this morning.

So that was a major win for me.

The rest fell into place. Today was the hardest of the 3 days thus far for me. But I got through.

I’m sure there will be plenty more of those days, but I can feel the momentum beginning to build. I don’t want to let myself down. I don’t want to let my kids down.

I need to be a better man and father for them.

I need to be healthier so I can annoy them for many years to come.

They’ll love me for that.


Anyway I’m out. I have shit to do tomorrow. It’s only day 4 but this is serious stuff, man.

Gotta get the work done.
