I have just made two very important purchases, pre-ordered Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and iAWriter for Mac πŸ’»

More snow today. ❄️

A day in the life of a Marley Volume 3.

Marley runs into the bedroom naked.

  • Annie: Marley, where are your big girl panties?

  • Marley: I can’t wear them.

  • Annie: Why not?

  • Marley: (with an annoyed face) I have a tail! Can’t you see?!?

I currently have 3 women in my house telling me what to do. A 3-month-old, a 3-year-old and a 30-some-year-old. Each in their own ways. I’ve got no support. I need a dog β€” and male. πŸ˜…

Today, I counted shoveling snow as a workout πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ ⛄️

We woke up this morning like! ❄️

A day in the life of a Marley Volume 2.

We have been having some issues with our 3-year-old Marley, potty training issues. When it comes to number 1 she’s got it down but when it comes to number 2 though, well that’s where we been having issues. We aren’t sure why or what it is but for whatever reason she just won’t do it. Even when we offered getting her a diaper on so she can go and do her business at her usual spot in the house, she’d refuse. She’d rather hold it in for days! Thus she wouldn’t eat or sleep well and all that not fun stuff. Well today my wife had it and threatened her to use an enema! Marley already went through this once before so she knows how that goes.

Anyway, I’m still at work, I’m messaging back and forth with my wife about it. Next thing I know I get an iMessage, with a picture…

I’ve never in my life, been somewhat happy about getting a picture of a turd, in a toilet! Marley decided on her own accord to go and sit on the toilet over having enema.

Smart choice kiddo!

(No, I am not going to share such picture, worry not)

Getting back on track.

Today I have completed my first good workout in a while. I want to get back into it, no, I need to get back into it. Back to not just a better physical state but also a better mental state, I believe one comes with the other. I want to feel good and healthy, and also good about myself. Too many things in life, poor excuses and bad habits are the culprits of my current state. I think it’s time to change that!

A workout routine, I need to get serious about it, close those rings, be consistent and no excuses. Better nutrition, stop or reduce significantly my poor choices when it comes to unhealthy foods and snacks that have no nutritional value. Probably my biggest guilty pleasure right now are potato chips, pizza (which they love buying at work for almost any reason) and donuts, I’ve got to work on that. Also make sure I do all my meals through the day and drink more water! Less alcohol, drinking alcoholic (mostly beer) is probably my worst habit. One that got worse while I was unemployed, probably bored and depressed, I’d say. Though I consider myself a craft-beer enthusiast I feel like I have been drinking too much, too often and probably for the wrong reasons. Whereas before I would treat it more like a treat or reward to myself. It was more about the experience, trying something new and enjoy it without been too excessive. Definitely something that needs correction.

I think my biggest challenge on this it’s commitment, to stay focused, consistent and true to myself. I’m sure I’m going to need some help and establish some systems in order to stay on top of things. But if stick to my plans I’m sure I’ll to start seeing β€” and feeling β€” some positive changes and that will keep me motivated.

I wish meself some luck!

About halfway through this album, I am really enjoying it!

I have just finished my first legit workout in a long time! It feels good, let’s see for how long I can keep it up.

With my sunglasses on, I’m Jack Nicholson. Without them, I’m fat and 60.

I live by this quote, except that I’m not 60. 😎

Love it! πŸ˜…

A day in the life of a Marley Volume 1.

  • Marley: Mama can I have an Oreo and a cookie with white icing(oatmeal)?
  • Annie: You can have only one because we’re going to eat in a bit.
  • Marley: but one is for me and one for baby Fred (her red fox 🦊 stuffed animal)
  • Annie: πŸ™„ okay

Not for nothing but, being a parent can be very exhausting some days. If not, almost every day. (opens beer)

Today, I went to Target, walked by one of them new iPad pros. I noticed she noticed me noticing her. We flirted, we made an emotional β€” and intelectual β€” connection. But in the end…. I could only afford Kingdom Hearts 3 for PS4

Marley, year three (notes).

She has her own version of Redemption Song. :)

Another thing I need to stop obsessing about, is my theme. πŸ˜…

I find myself changing it way too often. 😩

I need to obsessed with something other than my task managers issues. I think I’m going for video games again. πŸ˜…

Random thought: John Wick , does he uses OmniFocus or Things 3 when planning a β€œParty”?

Saturday. #obscuraapp

My date this afternoon.

Well, there ya go! πŸ€ͺ🐬

Task managers, task managers...

This is a never ending topic for me! I own them all, I’ve tried them all β€” loved and hated them all. Lately they all have become, in one way or another, a cause of mental stress. Constantly moving from system to system and never been completely happy with them and stress free. So the obvious choice at this point is to go back to the basics, lists and simple reminders. For this purpose I have always been a fan of the stock Reminders app, except for the fact I don’t quite like the way it looks or it’s organized. And here’s where GoodTask comes in. I have always liked this app, it doesn’t give me mental stress other apps do. The best part is that it doesn’t require too much fiddling or setting up on my part. of course you can make things as complicated as you want of course. The app can be very powerful too, Tim Nahumck did an amazing overview of the app a while ago here.

Anyway, going back to “basics” kinda fits with my theme for this year of Simplifying. We’ll see how it goes.
