My endeavor to suck less

ocean rocks

I thought my first blog entry was funny, in a self-deprecating way, when I wrote it.  I don't think I pulled it off.  The real reason for this blog is to help me organize my thoughts, become a better writer and just be more methodical and rigorous in my approach to work.

Politics is a big interest for me right now so I'm sure I'll write about that.  I'm also struggling to provide my family a good life, lose weight, spend more time outdoors and take the next step in my career.  I'd like to talk about everything...we'll see if I have the guts.

On a lighter note, I might throw in some rants and general observations.

Am I joking when I say I'm lazy, fat and I suck at everything.  Yes and no.  I do love outdoor recreational sports but I'm not big on routines, cleaning or repetitive activities.  So when it comes to daily chores I am about as lazy as it gets and still be functional.  I am 5' 10'' and 320 pounds so that definitely is fat.  And although I am moderately or adequately good at a lot of things, I haven't pushed to excel at anything so, nobody would say I sucked in my early 20s, but now?  I suck.

I'm want to change those negative aspects without losing the independent thinking I love to do.  Good luck to me!

Here's my progress so far:

1) Lazy:  I'm finally doing this blog aren't I?

2) Fat: I'm on the Keto diet (Joe Rogan's podcast to thank)  - lost 23 pounds in 23 days so far  (319 today, 342 at start)

3) Sucking: No progress yet, still sucking hard
