It’s that time…another installment of everyone’s favorite personal update blog….What’s Hapfining!!!!!
I made myself a promise at the beginning of 2018….this year…this decade…MY 40s…will be the best years of my life- period.
I’ll turn 40 years old in about 18 days and, before 2018, I was pretty down about that…it’s hard to imagine that I’m going to be that old- I still look at myself as a youngster.
Then…I decided that age is truly just a number and I need to take control of shit if I’m going to see much after 40 and I’ve done a great job at that.
I’m down 47.2 lbs. from my highest weight and I’m still highly motivated to lose 200 lbs…long way to go but I’m almost 25% of the way there.
I decided to do more of what makes me happy, which means more Pokemon and video games and just relaxing and having “do nothing” days. I finally watched the first two season of Rick and Morty and I’m just trying to focus on happiness.
I’ve been with my wife for 15 year and never been happier; our son is super smart and getting into badn…we own our home, have decent cars and food (low carb food) on the table.
I’ve been working out 5 days a week for the last 4 weeks and haven’t miss a single workout.
I just feel fucking amazing.
On top of all of that, I got a new job-ish at work (some place I’ve been for 12 years now) which is a higher pay grade- which means more money- which means more Pokemon cards- which means more happiness!!!
I know there are people out there right now getting pissed because life is so amazing and I know people are mumbling to themselves “yea, he lost weight before but his fat ass just gained it back….he’ll do the same thing this time too…” and you have a right to say that because I have done this before.
I can say, this time is totally different- I’m doing things I didn’t think were possible…I’m creating habits that are sticking and proving to myself just how strong I really am. Haters gonna hate but check back on me in about a year or two- we’ll see who was right.
I did a lot of amazing things in my 20s and 30s but I feel like, as far as my health, they were wasted and I’m not wasting my 40s.
And finally….we are going to Louisville this Saturday to donate some cards to Home of the Innocents, which will put us about 40,000 away from hitting the 8 million trading cards donated to kids.
So…in closing….fuck turning 40…bring it…
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
