  • Day 4: Shaping Discipline

    I didn’t get out of bed until 4:47 this morning – so no credit there. But I did get everything done before I left for work this morning. I had a good conversation with one of my grandmasters today, he was talking about an experience with Ed Parker Sr. where the senior black belts kept…

  • Day 3: Shaping Discipline

    It’s interesting to me how I’m suddenly having a massive amount of resistance around doing martial practice today – I’m going to get it done. But even writing this journal entry is a form of resistance to doing what I know I should be doing. Yeah, I think it’s that I really do love the…

  • Day 2: Shaping Discipline

    I let myself sleep in this morning – it’s Saturday after all. I got up about 7 (when my son said it was time), I took a shower and got ready to go to breakfast with the family. We went to McDonald’s to let my boy play, but he wasn’t interested today, so we ate…

  • Day 22: Starting Off Winning

    I want to say I hate being sick, but really it’s not something I can control – outside of taking preventative measures. I’m a generally clean person, so that’s all I can do aside from taking care of myself while I’m sick. I had a meeting this afternoon and I’ve been dealing with a sinus…

  • Day 21: Starting Off Winning

    I wish I was feeling better, but I’m not – oh well. I’ve at least kept the blog going as part of this process. I’ve been debating on doing anything as “penance” for not getting the other things on my routine done while I’ve been sick, but no – the point is not to punish…

  • Day 20: Starting Off Winning

    Still sick, so I don’t know that this counts as “starting off” winning. But I’m still doing what I can and I did manage to get some work done today, while my son was also home not feeling good. Both of us ended up taking a nap, but I woke up before he did and…

  • Day 19: Starting Off Winning

    I’m still sick, thought I was starting to feel a bit better until this afternoon, and then got worried when the Mrs. said her throat is hurting. So I got a strep test and it came back negative – but given that it’s within the first 48 hours of symptoms, the false negative rate is…

  • Day 18: Starting Off Winning

    Woke up about 3:00am feeling like a cold was coming on – I turned off my alarm because it’s Saturday anyway. Then went back to sleep. I wrestled a lot with sleep, finally got out of bed around 8:00am feeling like crap. Yep full blown cold (or maybe strep – my throat has been getting…

  • Day 16: Starting Off Winning

    It was a bit rough getting out of bed this morning, I was actually arguing with myself – or I should say I was telling myself I needed to get out of bed, but didn’t for about 20 minutes. Once I got into the shower it got easier to make myself do things, but I…
