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 http://www.trikidstriathlon.com/ he is the swim picture. That’s my boy!
