“But he was able to understand one thing: making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him into places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.”

Three weeks, 21 days
ago I started my journey (read about it here). I jumped into the strong current. Unknown what the universe would do to me and how I would handle the challenges. My journey has become so much more than I thought it was going to. The initial idea of quitting drinking, forever, and then a side of training for a 10k has now become much more. First off, this journal has enabled me to reflect each day 24hrs at a time, taking small steps and really looking at my actions and their results. Secondly, my diet has changed not so much at home (besides the lack of beer) but more when I am away. I have significantly reduced the number of times a week I go out to eat, not to mention what I eat when I do.
Third, I started working on a plan to run a 10k, I had already signed up for the 10k prior to starting this journey but I didn’t really have an idea of what I was doing or when I was going to do it. Now that has changed, this journey is primarily focused on my running.
Run 12: HAVE NOT COMPLETED YET TODAY [1.5mi Planned]
Tonight I will complete my run and hang out with my family at a TinCaps. I’m excited to see where this jump into the current brings me and my family. Thanks for checking in on my journey, sign up for updates and keep tabs on my progress. Also I’m pretty active on Twitter and Instagram if you would like to follow me there.
The quote at the beginning of this post is from my newest favorite book. I encourage you to check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
