One week in and things seem to be going pretty good all things considering.  This morning I got in an Ab Ripper X session, shoveled the driveway, swam, ran and hit a spin class.  I am feeling pretty good kind of want to sneak out at lunch and run a little more but I have a meeting early this afternoon so that probably wont be the best idea in the world.

I have started streamlining my life yesterday and stepped down from the position of Vice-Chair of the OBOA executive that I sat on.  I wasnt able to put in a full effort and do the job properly.  I was expected to take over the Chair position in November and I didn’t want to be responsible for having a negative effect on 60+ people’s careers.  I also have set up a meeting  with the guy I do Fire Prevention with for next week so we can discuss a diminished role until January of 2012.  I handed off all of the Treasurer stuff to the new Treasurer of the Fire Department Association on Monday night.  The idea here is that I can concentrate on things that I want to do that are important to me.

When I think of me as I ideally see myself I see me as a husband, a father, a firefighter and a triathlete of course all of the other things I must do in order to facilitate what I want to do.  Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can really concentrate on trimming the fat from my life so I can start to do these things better than I am currently. On that note I have also decided to stay on the Association of the Fire Department as president for one more year as I am personally getting pretty tired of the apathy that exist and I have made it my goal to change the feeling and bring the group (30+ type A alpha males) closer together.  I have my work cut out for me.

On a completely different note my son is featured on the TriKids website as the first picture you see when you go there.  Here is the link  he is the swim picture.  That’s my boy!

    Way to go Dad – cute kid.
    I know what you mean about cutting the fat in your life. Sometimes you have to get rid of the excess to be able to reach your goals.
    Good Luck
