Its getting through days like today that will pay off in the future. Building efficacy in the face of fatigue now […]Read More Week 36 day 4: is it Friday yet?
In the immortal words of Tom Petty, “The waiting is the hardest part.” Well I’m sure that might not be true in this case, it seems that way for both my wife and I. Thank goodness for routines. Following a good routine each day helps pass the time better and also keeps me on track. It […]Read More Week 36 Day 3 (Week 14)
(Week 14 Day 2) Well it occurred to me last week that I have been numbering things all wrong. I should have been numbering my weeks according to the pregnancy. I suppose it would have made more sense starting at week 1 but alas that week was somewhere back in January and I hadn’t had […]Read More Week 36 Days 1 and 2: Wait What happened to Week 14?

My wife felt something was wrong and called the OB/GYN and was directed to go to labor and delivery immediately. At the point when I […]Read More Week 13 Day 2: Drop Everything!
You will notice a different color ink on the above journal entry. That is because I didn’t get all my sets done while at work. I had to finish up at home and while doing so was able to use a heavier weight. Still, the momentum continues. God Bless! Trouble and distress have overtaken me, […]Read More Week 13 Day 1: Get er done!
My wife is pretty great! 33 weeks pregnant and she coordinated with a neighbor for a little R&R for me. She said was had been such a good sport I needed to get out of the house and away from all of the estrogen for a while. I am so blessed to be married to […]Read More On the river again
What I mean is flexibility when it comes to daily schedule. When things become important you find the time to do them. Like today for instance. I knew that I had a busy Friday and looking at my day it was going to be hard to sneak my workouts in due to what I had […]Read More Week 12 Day 5: A lesson in flexibility…but not that kind
