Yeah, it's me. Back again. After falling off the wagon... AGAIN. How many times does this make now? 5 of 6? A reasonable person would just give up, throw in the towel, call it quits, and accept their large fate. I, on the other hand, am a stubborn, strong-willed, and unreasonable individual. I never give up. Call me foolish, but I'm that moron who keeps getting hit and just keeps standing up again, even if I can't throw a punch, I'm still on my feet.
So, seventh (ninth... tenth?) times a charm, right?! I mean, eventually I'll get sick of getting knocked down and I'll get my second wind. But one thing is for certain, I never give up. And I won't. It may take me 10 times as long as it should to lose this weight, but I will get there! I will not let myself fail because failure is not an option!
Last week I got back from Belize, where I was finishing up some lab work for my thesis (I extended my trip to include the end of the world, of course). And I realized, as Belize always makes me realize, that I really need to get in shape if I intend to continue pursuing a career archaeology. Especially in Belize. I wasn't even doing archaeology this time, I was doing lab work, and I still should have been in better shape. I was winded walking up the hill from my cabaņa to the bar at the resort! (Granted, it was a big hill, but still...)
So, after giving myself a week to recover, here I am, back again (cue music). And I'm ready to kick some fat butt! Who's with me?! (For as long as I last this time...) It's the start of a new year, a new week, a new month, a new day!! Any day is a great day to begin anew!!
Here's to refusing to give up!
