Its been two months now and time to reflect and take stock on my journey.
I feel like I am in better shape. Been running and it’s getting better. I have also noticed I have lost a little of the dad belly I had built over the holidays. Able to wear a couple of smaller waste size pants without bustin’ buttons. So far, So good.
The ole brain seems to be working fine. This is a hard one to gauge. Life is gonna be stressful, that’s just the way life is. It’s how well I can return to normal. I don’t have any objective data on this one and just have to go on feeling. I feel a little better than when I started so that’s saying something. But let’s see how I feel in another two months.
This one I also have to go on feelings to determine if I have changed any. I feel that I have. When I go on walks or pray or have my check-ins with God I feel better about it and feel more of a connection than I did before. God is definitely in more of my thoughts throughout the day. Still not as much as I think I should be.
I asked my wife if she noticed anything different. She told me she noticed I don’t fall asleep on the couch as fast as I was. She noticed that it appears I have more energy and knows we haven’t been getting as much sleep as we should. And that’s good because I want to be present with her as much as possible in the precious moments we have during the week.
Overall I have seen some progress but it’s still only two months with 10 to go. I have marveled at the fact that I have been able to post everyday that I have said I would. Sometimes it has been hard and I really had to rack my brain for something to say.
