January 15

So it's mid January!
How are those resolutions coming along?

I'm doing well on the walking and more than halfway to my 100 mile goal. Unfortunately, I haven't done much else in the way of exercise. For now, I'm okay with that, but do need to add some upper body work in along the way.
My eating habits are pretty good and I've been logging my food intake again. I'm down 7+ pounds since the beginning of the year and am slowly working my way back to the 200# mark.

My daily Bible reading is still on track and should be pretty easy to maintain. Currently I'm reading through Acts and the epistles. I'll read through the gospels next and then determine how I'll read through the Old Testament.

I've written my first two long-hand letters and hope to continue to write one each week.

Mostly, I'm just enjoying life.
I have been reading more, but not as much as I thought I would.
I haven't been writing more and really need to set aside the time for that.

I have been watching more magic and also need to set up a regular time for that. I think I'll use a Michael Ammar tactic and consider treating magic like training for an athletic event.
Magic Training Camp!

There is little stress in my life right now. I like it this way. Perhaps I am too comfortable with not spending time with other people. Even when I am with others (like at church, a ballgame, whatever), I am comfortable keeping to myself and being alone (if you know what I mean). I don't know if that's a bad thing or not.

I have been spending less time on social media -- at least as far as reading posts from other people. I pay more attention to the blogs I follow and actual news feeds than to personal posts. I am following fewer and fewer people. One of the things that I like about Twitter over Facebook is that I can follow people without them following me and vice versa. We don't have to "be friends" for one of us to follow the other.

Oh well.

And I apparently missed another GOP debate last night. They really need to check the Blues hockey schedule when they decide dates for these things. I think that every one has been opposite a Blues game!

2016 is starting well. I hope that the same is true for you.

It's not.
