January 2020 an exercise in failure

It's slightly after 10 pm on January 31st and I sit here reflecting the past month and everything that I wanted to accomplish but didn't. We all make our own choices and all of mine revolved around how I handle stress and stick to my goals during such a time and the truth is that this past month I failed in more ways that one.  It was my own self control and my lack of discipline that has put me into this spot and I fully realize it.  It is my blame to shoulder and I don't have issue with it. What I have issue with is that I really had no discipline this past month.  Even tonight I caved in, even though I tried really hard to just fight it.  Tonight was better than what I wanted it to be though.  I really wanted to leave work and hit up Jack-in-the-Box and get some of those delicious mini tacos and come home and slam them down with a few beers.  That is not what happened and it took a big fight with myself but I drove home and felt better about life.

Stress and the New Year

Hello people getting healthier in 2020. I have finally recorded my initial thoughts for this year and plan on doing it twice a month. I also plan on writing something here at least once a month to fill in the gaps as well. Being that work is extremely stressful right now my free time is next to zero.  However, after the first or second week of February things will go back to normal and I'll be able to get into a better, more consistent routine.  If there is anything anyone wants me to discuss let me know, leave a comment and I'll be sure to touch upon it as best as I can. Thank You. Podcast on Square Space You can also listen and follow on itunes, google play, spotify or pretty much anywhere just by searching Fat Man in Vegas

2019 has come and gone and overall it was a great year for me.  When I look back on it I do so fondly and know that there are things I started that I will build upon and things that didn't work which I will discontinue. That being said, it is currently the time of year to look ahead to what is in store and what I want to work on.  So, to fall in line with the social norms (this is still a social norm right?  This didn't stop being a thing did it?) I wish to present to you my New Years Revolutions! These will be all over the place and, of note, I am also doing some daily (or weekly; or weakly) housekeeping in a journal this year which I will then translate to the written (and audio) internet form. I bought this really cool looking Deadpool notebook and have been trying to figure out what to use it for.
