I’m writing from a coffee shop in Bellingham, Washington. It’s a medium sized town near the border of Canada. The weather is great, which is to say it’s mostly cloudy and rainy. I love that though. The 4 year drought we’re suffering though in California has been pretty ridiculous. It’s been refreshing to see shiny clean cars, green forests and drinking delicious water straight from the tap.
I haven’t written in a while and I’ll tell you why. I’ve been down. I lost a bunch of weight and wanted to keep it off working out. The scale is creeping up again and I don’t like it. The reason for that is pretty simple.
There’s the shoulder injury, which if I were being honest, isn’t as big of an issue anymore. It’s still a setback though. Another reason is a new cough I got. It’s not the worst thing I’ve experienced, but it’s enough to discourage me. I might try and run this afternoon a bit. Not positive I’ll be able to, though. There’s a lot on my plate for work.
Speaking of work. I’ve been working remote this week. It’s not as fun as I thought. I wonder if it would be different if I were in my own space, rather than our friend’s house. I think it would be better working from my own space. I just know not having control of your work environment is probably more the key than anything else. Even in an office environment, I’d like to control some of the things that are distracting.
Anyway, I’m hoping I can shake this cough and get back to working out. I think I’ll be happier. I always feel better when this pent up energy is released. It’s weird how that happens. A little workout gives you more energy than a little more rest. It’s tough to do, but it’s important. Especially when I sit and stare at a glowing box all day.
