Yargh, Day Two!

Still a big bunch of meh behind my eyes. YARGH! Day two. I don't know what the hell happened to my motivation. Or my mental energy levels. But I'm dragging ass horribly. Trying to psyche myself up. Find some kind of second gear and go from there.

Got this plan to bang out a couple of lingering issues. Going to try and make some progress on them each day until they're complete: One, consolidate a couple of old 401K accounts into my current provider. Dos, knock out an old car payment and consolidate my bills into one new car note for the Lightning Bug. Trois, refinance the house at a lower, fixed rate while the lower fixed rates are still good. If I can bang all three of those out, it will put a nice dent on my monthly bills and be a large burden off my mind.

Fortunately, I'm still motivated enough to get into the gym. Hit it hard, tonight. Back and biceps. Then a 30 min run that cut off 400 calories. Ended up sweating like a cold beer in August. Completely soaking my shirt. And helping my mood in the process.

Going to weigh in on Friday. Praying I'm closer to 200 than 205. Started around 217! And have gone as low as 201. Before Thanksgiving assaulted my waistline.

I need to bring the thunder. But there's no spark in sight. Have to find my inspiration, again. Maybe if I invoke her with an ancient prayer:
Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns driven time and again off course, once he had plundered the hallowed heights of Troy. The man of constant sorrow!
Who else in the 21st century harkens back to Homer? I'm such a loser. Constant sorrow, indeed.

If you makes you feel any better, I'm reading Julius Caesar currently. They're at least in the same millennium as it comes to authors.

And if you need some more motivation, I'm currently cutting weight to make it to your weight class - then we can get our Chess Boxing match in.
