It comes and it goes

Christmas has come and gone. New Years has come and...well sort of gone. Now its back to the routine of living life. Tomorrow I get to celebrate my loves birthday. It should be a pretty grand day. Its always nice to celebrate those that you love. On birthdays, or just any day in general. We could set aside a special day every week for her, and I would be a-ok with that. We are going to go to 6th ave wine & ale...or as the locals call it, 6th av. A delicious pizza and glass of wine, or beer, or water ( I'd say soda but they don't serve it) Happy Birthday (a little early) Allyson!

Whenever I read a book, it makes me want to write a book. I am currently reading "Decision Point" by President Bush, and "The problem with pain" by C.S. Lewis. Both great books that I would recommend. But back to writing a book. I am too much of a technical writer, too straight to the point to write a book. If I wrote a book it'd be about 5 pages and cover every important topic anyone could be concerned with. Ok, well maybe not, but you get the idea. Unless I wrote a book about myself, buuut, that would be too revealing. So I'd have to pretend the story was about someone named...something other than Levi. Ya know, names changed to protect the innocent sort of thing. Maybe one day. But probably not.

Dieting and going to the gym are not very fun. Good for you; yes. But not enjoyable. Going to the gym can be fun when you see where you started and see where you are now. But the actual physical act of getting up and being there and working out is not. And dieting...well, I love food too much. But it is working. I have faithfully been going to the gym 5-7 days a week since the beginning of November. And I changed eating habbits at the end of November (when Air Force talk got serious) and this morning the scale read 209.5. Much better than the 227 is read when I began being serious after Thanksgiving. 17.5 down, and 6.5 to go. Plus, I am getting bigger muscles. For some reason that makes me feel good. So even if its not enjoyable, I'll continue to do it because it's good for me. As Hebrews 12:11 says, 'No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening-its painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living..." I'll take it.


  1. Hang in there with the gym and diet. Over all of my years of athletics, the think I think makes it all easy to bear is having an event to aim for. You may flat line on your weight goals temporarily, which can be frustrating, but signing up for a 10k on Jan 31...the 31st comes if you're losing weight or not.
