Every 6-9 months I get these injections in my knees to help with arthritis pain. They are called Synvisc. It's basically an injection of gel into my knee capsule to create space and lubricate the joint.

 

The needle is big and...

Yesterday I stayed up late working on the Plateau Buster Challenge materials.

By stay up late, I also mean... needed an extra hour to wind down by watching Greys Anatomy and stress ate some graham crackers and nutella before bed because I was anxious about upcoming travel.

I woke...

You Don't Feel Like It bjj challenge promises results Mar 23, 2021

When I promised to write you this journal, I knew it would be hard.

 

Why?

 

Because writing a regular blog means writing when I don't want to write.  It means writing without inspiration.   Writing because of the commitment and writing for what is possible.

Daily Grind

 

I'm sorry I haven't written as often.  My ability to write is directly tied to a specific time of day.  Morning.  And lately... my mornings have been unpredictable.   Restful sleep is now a distant memory and I catch myself thinking about what it will feel...

10K Everyday

 

Before Josh came home Georgia was sleeping from 1030pm to 430 am most nights. It was pretty great to get a long chunk of sleep. For some reason since his arrival, she has decided she needs an additional 2 wake-ups. So now we are doing 1030pm, 130am, 330am, 6am. I tease him...

Sugar Goose

 

Georgia has had a series of rough sleeping nights.  Last night she did pretty well and slept from 1230 to 5.  The sleep deprivation is starting to impact my brain function though.  I can't remember certain words.   I forget things I've said to...

Push to that Rock

Mentally I play a game.... It has always helped me do things that feel hard.   I break the "thing" up into manageable bites and then repeat that interval.

I mentioned this to you once before in regards to dishes.  I only pick up 10 dishes at a time... leave the...

I have one believer, Henry (age 7)...but Logan (age 9) finally came to the conclusion that Santa and Chippy are....well I won't spoil it for you.
