  • Embracing Warriorship: The End

    I think this challenge is dead. I’ve been fighting with myself and trying to understand why I haven’t had the drive to push through this challenge like I’ve had for the previous ones. I’ve picked up some good habits, but I find myself contemplating why I’m continuing this format. It’s putting a bunch of pressure…

  • Day 10: Embracing Warriorship

    This is more of a catch-up than anything. I’m really on day 10 and I’m failing the challenge to myself to do everything on my list. But simultaneously I’m feeling like I’m digging down to a whole new level. I’m accepting that I’m fine not meeting my own expectations. I keep thinking back to Way…

  • Day 6: Embracing Warriorship

    Yeah far less stress on myself when I don’t overload myself with everything. I did my journaling, cold water exposure, and took my dog for a walk after I got home from work. I realized I’ve been floundering with my goals for this – making them far too complicated. Eh derp. I’m pursuing the path…

  • Day 5: Embracing Warriorship

    Something absolutely unexpected happened yesterday – my neighbor who almost made me punch his lights out – apologized. So yeah, that’s nice, I know another of my neighbors by name and hey he’s walking his dog on a leash and apparently not being so much of a jackass. Wow. In other news I’ve actually been…

  • Day 4: Embracing Warriorship

    I’m really not feeling like I’m embracing warriorship today – but I’m going through everything. I showed up at the dojo and did some light bag work, light stretching, and some combinations in the air. I just couldn’t get my joints to warm up. I probably need to get some sleeves for my knees and…

  • Embracing Warriorship – Reboot

    I’ve been debating on what to do differently this time around and I had a couple of epiphanies while I was at it. I’ve got access to a dojo that’s unused first thing in the morning, so I’m going to start going in and training for an hour on days when I’m not doing weights.…

  • Finding Brandon

    I woke up this morning with a strange feeling. I started thinking on my 30 day challenges and why I decided to reboot, more so why I kept sabotaging myself. Especially after I’ve had so many successes already. Then in a flash of half-dreaming inspiration I had a picture of my self-image as a gangly,…

  • Day 6: Embracing Warriorship

    Wow, I had zero ambition today. Then my co-workers wanted to do lunch (they also work remotely) – so I got in the shower at 11 and got cleaned up. I made myself go through my cold exposure since I was in there anyway. Wouldn’t you know it, I suddenly had some ambition. Thinking back,…

  • Day 5: Embracing Warriorship

    Wow, this 30 days is proving to be a lot harder ramp up than I thought. But I’m still doing what I can – while still being a good father, husband, and employee. These practices are meant to improve my life overall not take it over. I did get most of my list done yesterday,…
