Katsolo's Journal, 12 July 2018

It's going to be a brutal rest of the year at work, very busy, understaffed... I was so tired last night, it is still hot and humid and I didn't stop working until almost 7, then made the mistake of sitting down on the couch. After a bit, I made myself turn off the TV and swam. Ended up being a good thing. So hard motivating sometimes, but I'm almost always glad when I do. I need to remember that. I need to make sure I save some time for "me" and don't give it all at work. This is a good problem, but still a problem.

Going to focus on the "good" as much as I can. Head down, this too shall pass.

Need to purge the closet again. Almost all my shorts are falling down to the point it's ridiculous. Good problem to have. Will try and make it through the end of the year and get new ones next year.

My counselor has been out for two weeks and will be back tomorrow. My scale has stayed relatively flat, but I know I'm building muscle since I'm now playing with the 10lb weights again without effort (and some other stuff). I guess we should talk about whether I want to focus on fat loss again and then the muscles or continue working on both. My legs are so toned already, it's just that belly fat that will probably never go away that seems to be languishing. I'm not the type for surgery though, so we'll just press on. I took a pic at my desktop today, the double chin is no more. That, all by itself is worth this journey. I'm going to try pushups tonight. I used to be able to knock out 50 standard pushups, my arms are strong enough, but I don't know about my core. This should be interesting. I don't know if I should keep looking back to what I used to be able to do in high school, but I remember a mentor at work who swam masters with me back then. He told me that he was faster at 68 due to changes in technique than when he held school records in high school and college. Kinda cool. Something to think about.
