One of the things I overlook about doing all this time consuming stuff is how often I underestimate how long it will take me to blog every night. I normally tell myself that it will take about 30-45 minutes and my goal is around 1000 words. Then I get into it and toss in some video/pics/gifs and boom, it’s 2 hours later.
Since my first willpower month in June of 2012, the whole gif thing has exploded. I remember trying to actually make my own gifs because I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Now they are super easy to find on any topic. Let’s try to see how easy. Ok it is 8:22pm and I’m going to search for…..ummm a gif of a turtle doing the moonwalk. GO
Ok, it’s 8:26.
Here’s the closest things I found:
While searching for that I found THIS though, which I LOVE:
This happens a LOT, I search for one thing and end up finding another that I like even better.
That was a weird way to start tonight’s post, but in my defense SHUT UP.
I’ve been up since 5am:
Here’s how I know how bad it is. After work I went to the comedy club to meet with the other owners as we do once a week, and then I tried to hang around for the open mic after….
I had more then a few people tell me that I looked tired or like shit or whatever…just not good.
I knew this was coming, it’s been a few days and my brain and body saying…
And yes, that’s evidently a gif from the CW, which, I guess, is where I’m getting my content from these days. Proving all that much more that I need to just go to bed soon.
I’m terribly sore, but I’m down 5 pounds. I’ll take it. I’ve been here before and I’ll umm…power thru it again.
Sometimes you can utilize the internet for good instead of just watching porn/cat videos/cat video porn.
Here are two great motivational examples:
I did wake up at 5am, I did p90x again today instead of going to the actual gym, and while I realize that’s kind of not the deal…I kind of like it and it’s getting the job done…so I might just keep doing it. It’s easier but still horribly difficult, and Tony is a DICK.
If you’ve never seen P90X this will still make sense, because it’s a really simple meme:
P90X is the first time that I’ve ever considered yoga to be the hardest workout I’ll ever try to complete.
I’m happy to say that I’ve said yes to the first thing that I’d normally say no to! Don’t make fun, but I was asked if I’d like to be a mentor to children without a positive male role model at a certain local school. My friend paid me a compliment when I told her about it, she said “well, that’s a lie because you would have said yes to that regardless.”
I reminded her that it is during my work day and there is no way I could have made time for that normally, until I decided to make time for it by saying yes, like some kind of guy that has a lot of time on his hands these days.
I MEAN WHAT IS HE DOING THESE DAYS!?
I’m going to have to schedule my day around my weekly visit with, well, whoever they assign me. I absolutely would have said no to that normally. I’m all about volunteering if it doesn’t impact my work day, this doesn’t do that. So THAT’S why it’s a “yes” when it normally would have been a “no”.
I did tell the nice person who contacted me that I currently look like a homeless Thor and therefore might actually scare the children… She wasn’t too concerned.
Turns out homeless Thor is like 1000% better than “Dad beat up mom, is in prison.”
So those were the words that were used, like…for real.
So I will never miss a meeting with my little guy/gal, ever. They deserve homeless Thor to be…well…THOR LIKE!
I feel like I have some work to do, but those chicks were HOT!*
*I have never slept with either girl in that picture and they made me sign an affidavit asserting those facts.
Getting back on point, I agreed to mentor some kid at some school. 1 of 7 down.
My RAOK for the day was business-ish related.
I was going to say “this is one of those….blah blah blah you don’t need to worry about it”
Here’s what happened:
I was very Jesus like.
Ok I was not very Jesus like AT ALL, I just refrained from stabbing a woman for being a horrible person.
Let’s leave that right there.
I just looked at the clock. It’s so late. I’m going to cut this all off right now.
1. Blog about it everyday: Done
2. Wake up at 5 am on week days and 7am on weekends: Done
3. Go to the gym before work on the days I work: P90X has taken over
4. Floss everyday (I just know I should do it more) The actual floss shreds and is not good. I miss Floss Ups
5. Teach Millie to come to me. (she knows “sit”…and that’s all) No JOKE! She came to me today. I’m going to get it on video!
6. Do a Random Act Of Kindness (RAOK) everyday. DONE
7. Say “yes” to something once a week that I would normally have said “no” to. 1/7 so far
8. 5 Videos for Charity 0/5 filmed….2/5 planned
9. Weigh 242 pounds or under at the end of the 50 days or donate 1,000 dollars to the KKK I guess we’ll see…
10. Eat one meal that has vegetables in it every week. Which means I will ingest 7 more vegetables than I would have normally. 0/7 so far
