We're back

NEW ALBANY — Yeah, it's been a while since I've updated this blog. 

In the days and weeks that have passed since my last update, I've had a few success and a few challenges. I've done some things I'm extremely proud of, with a few things that I'm not at all proud of mixed in. I don't know why I've let this thing go for as long as I have - part of it is definitely being intimidated by the microscope this challenge has put me under. Although I love seeing my byline in the newspaper every day, I'm not a fan of talking about myself at all. I'm more of a listener and less of a sharer, and I guess it's a personality quirk that has come through. 

You're getting to know about my journey as I work toward better health, but you also get to know me better, as well... and I don't know why, but that's something that kind of makes me feel ill at ease. Before I went back to school to add journalism to my skill-set, being pseudo-famous was something that sort of appealed to me. Not so much now. It's weird having random people come up to you and starting a conversation when they know way more about you than you could ever know about them, and that's happened a few times since I started this thing. 

But I'm going to put that aside. When I first started this one-man fitness challenge, working out was a chore. It was something else I had to find a way to jam into my day, and it was frankly an inconvenience. In the world of sports, we work late. We sleep late. We do it all over again the next day. Working out is something that I used to do after work when I've had other jobs, and the fact that there wasn't a nice, spacious gym open past 11 p.m. anywhere was a major barrier toward getting there for me.
