Body of a blacksmith, the mind of a rocket scientist.

I've been cursed with the need to work harder than most to maintain my body. The challenges are many. I've never been able to find a happy medium between what I do for a living and what my body seems to need in activity.

I'm in a flux at the moment in my life that allows me to re-examine a lot. I'm taking advantage of that to move forward and improve on a few things that I previously let lapse.

2nd New Quote from me, for everyone:

"Just know that you will never reach a summit if you falter the first time the path becomes seemingly broken. Most of the time its a matter of looking at where you already came from to be able to see where the path is that leads to the top again." -- Prom.

My Goals:
I find myself at a cross roads. I'm helping my family why they are keeping me from a complete wipe out. So while I'm watching them go through some real life changing events, I am attempting to reform my own life while I'm in this limbo.

Short list: stop smoking, lose weight, feel better about my own body image, find some form of employment in this new town.

My Program:
Start each day with not smoking. Sounds easy unless you've really liked smoking ... So using Nicorette as a helper. 12 weeks and counting. Almost done with gum but I have to make it a little further I think than planned thanks to some other stressors. No sence causing worse problems. 3 or 4 peices max a day is not too bad, or costly. :)

Been doing some outside projects for neighbors and that helps keep me physically busy. Heavy lifting, moving metric tons of earth, carpentry, etc.

Support from family. Basically its been 3 active months in the making.

Next step was to join here. Randomly found myself here to boot.

Personal Information:
OCD, migraines, new found love of lower back pain from car wreck years ago ...

It doesnt get more personal than that. :)

Wonderful how things define us sometimes. Those seem to be the ones that best cover the basics.

Other Information:
Coastal Texas is like Florida. Except it is more relaxed.

Still not able to relax here though. Working on that.
