It's a Daily Struggle...

You may not believe this...

I haven't worked out in almost two weeks.

In the last 3 months, I've had a total of maybe 15 workouts, something I usually get in a month.  

I don't weigh myself often but last week when Megan was at the doctor's office I hopped on the scale and I couldn't believe it. 

I'm up at least 10-15lbs. 

My nutrition is a B at best, and typically involves at least 3-4 desserts weekly. 

Some of you know my struggle with obesity. 

I share it often because I think it helps all of you relate. 

You can read it here if you haven't read it yet. 

I'm here to tell you that I don't know what you're going through, but I do know that for me, and for you, every day is a struggle. 

Now, I could come up with some excuses like...

Having a then pregnant wife and now a newborn around the house. 

Taking care of a dad who really should probably be in an assisted living facility but is too stubborn to do so. 

Running a customer service business with hundreds of clients, 6 rock star team members, and having to step up even more recently with vacations and new hires. 

But I don't think that's what it is.

I've been busier....

I've worked harder...

It's just life. 

We all go through ebbs and flows. 

It's just part of the journey. 

I'll get back at it. 

You see, I love the wheel of life. 

My relationship is better than ever with Megan...

The gym is busier than ever...

I'm more present in life...

Every spoke on my wheel right now is rocking and rolling except the physical fitness aspect. 

And guess what?

That's ok. 

When I'm ready, the physical fitness and nutrition spoke will excel and I'll start to see results again.

Here's what I won't do...

Give up.

Punish myself.

Stop trying to sneak a workout in or make a little better nutrition choice. 

I don't know what you'll get out of today's post. 

As always, I write these fresh daily covering whatever is on my mind. 

As I write this my newborn son is sleeping in the arms of my wife right next to me, so although I need to drop a couple pounds, I'm ok :)

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Succes,
