      Quit smoking 2 months ago,...

      I got back into running. I was in track and field and cross country every year of high school, and figured it was time to get back into it.

      2012 Goals and status:

      Run a 1600m (mile) in less than 6 minutes. Clocked in at 5:59 last night. My new 1600m goal for 2012 is to beat my high school record of 5:17.
      Run a 5k in less than 21 minutes. Down to 19:21
      Run a 10k in less than 45 minutes.
      Run 8 miles without stopping. Im up to 12 with some hills.

      If you ask me,.... I think that's success right there!

      Submitted an offer on a short sale home, which is always a gamble. My offer was accepted, over five others, because I have the best credit and most importantly because I have pre-approval from Navy Federal, the bank that owns the original loan. And my offer was second lowest, price wise. Boom.

      I climbed up that extension ladder and repaired my bargeboards with some nice aluminium flashing. There will be no more peckers putting holes in my wood now!

      - Just had a bad@ss vacation with the family.
      - Pick up the mail on Saturday after getting home from vacation, and both of the kids had great report cards.
      - Come in to work today after being out for a week, go to an 8am meeting with my boss, walk out with a promotion and big bump in pay.

      Things have been good for the past 9 days.

      Paid off my wife's Civic this weekend a few years early. Only debt remaining is 1 more law school loan for her and our mortgage.

      Me too!

      I actually did it on a whim last night. Looked at my checking account, looked at my statement, said "f*** it" and clicked "Authorize Payment."

      Had a great weekend at Mid-Ohio with my customer. No major issues with both cars, no sessions missed, two first place finishes on Sunday and a happy customer. Can't beat that!

      I've always worked out and been in shape. But I've ALWAYS been horrible at running. I can finally do the distance of a 5k with no problems. Did it for the second time last night in 36 minutes (and that was after my hour-long chest session. Gonna be working on lowering my time soon

      My year end evaluation went really well at work. Got a great rating and a promotion. That means a nice bonus and raise. This is a big sigh of relief. I busted my ass this past year and it's nice it paid off.

      With the baby on the way this summer, the extra money will definitely come in handy.

      I'm on budget billing for my electric and ended the year using less electric than they calculated I would. No electric bill for 2 months. Great Success!
