Tangible Progress

So I have been working out and changing my eating habbits for a while now.  Anyone who follows my blog knows this.  What some of you may not know is that I never get on the scale.  My goal has never been to lose weight, but to get into better shape.

By getting in to better shape, the weight loss will come.  I’ve been lounging around for most of the day doing stuff at home and fighting with my shorts.  I did not really put two and two together until just a few minutes ago.  These shorts are now too big.  They are too big.  I keep having to pull them up when I move from one room to another.

You know what that means, tangible progress of the working out and eating better.  While it may not mean much to most of you, it means a lot to me.  I have struggled with my weight for the last few years and because I would never see any progress, I did not always stick with the program.  This time around I have stuck with it and I have tangible results.  I don’t know what was the linchpin this time around, but what ever it is, it is working.

A Promise

So I was talking to TB today, hell I talk to TB almost everyday.  Not sure if she knows it or not, but she one of my best friends, and someone I consider to be very close to.  Our conversations will at times revolve around the trials and tribulations of a single mother.  Things that I have no idea about, but somehow I manage to give good advice.

This really makes me appreciate having both of my parents in my life growing up.  After taking some time and thinking about having both parents in my life, not just in my life, but married and in the same house, I realized that if I ever have any kids, they will never know what it is like for me not to be in their life, for as long as I am alive.

To the future mother of my children, whether you are my wife, or just my girlfriend, I’m making a promise to you right now.  I promise that my children will never have to ask you when will I come around to see them.  They will never have to wonder why their father is not at their games, recital, plays, or any other event that happens in their life.  This is a promise you can take to the bank, and will not have to hold me accountable to.
