Interim Report


I am tired again tonight. It’s evening time and I am tired again. Not so much that I can’t handle staying awake for a bit longer to relax, watch a bit of tv, wind down, chat with the Mrs. You get the point. I can even muster up the energy to do a bit of research on the web before retiring for the night to get ready for my early mornings.

Every night seems to be filled with events, visits, groceries, children’s sports, school events, personal errands and on and on. I am not just falling behind here on My Friend in food but in may other extracurricular ventures as well. It’s tough but I bit all of this off and I will chew it!

Sounds OK right? The problem is, sometimes I don’t have the mental energy to write and thus I have fallen behind in my posts here on My Friend In Food. Furthermore, I have been so busy, I haven’t really been focusing on the book, it’s challenges, the changes and of course writing about it. I hope you can forgive me and more realistically, I hope you’re still with me.

And that’s my interim report. I love the book, I adore Theresa, her premise is great, 1 simple change per week. Brilliant. I have read the entire book om several occasions and have broken the rules and jumped ahead on some changes, completely ignored some changes and am waiting until I can find the time to implement some of the other changes.

So bear with me, I will catch up. I have a notebook full of scribbles that add up to several posts that I just need to hash out. But for now, it’s off to bed. Tomorrow morning and another 10k bike + 10k run awaits.

    It’s a journey, Dave, that takes as long as it takes. Staying on track is hard, jumping around is ok. You may need to skip ahead to the Diamonds section-the gems in life that teach you how to slow down. :)

    Hey Dave, I think you eloquently describe all the challenges we face everyday. My house is a mess, fridge empty, friends neglected, running forgotten. For me, the time I spend reading and writing for My Friend in Food is my time and I refuse to give it up. Its a hard balance but you are doing awesome.

    Yes ladies you are right, and Theresa, I will jump ahead to that chapter. It’s not that I am beaten down and stressed out. Maybe a bit over committed, but there so much I want to do, like to do, need to do and that includes some couch time! :)

    I wish there were more hours in the day! I know, don;t we all?
