February 2016


We are officially one month into 2016!

While most people won't notice it or care to, this month is the bridging month towards Spring and that makes me the happiest man in the world knowing that. I definitely need a change in climate because the winter months are always the worse for me, (even though I'm Scorpio born in November). For the longest I was feeling off, like my energy was low and I was always tired. That translated into me not being able to do some stuff I set out to do within the first of the year. A lot of people were starting to notice that I wasn't around as often as they're use to, and there's a great reason for that.

Upon going to the doctors for my initial check up I found out that I weighed 320lbs. Now after a couple of weight tests to determine if it was true that I weighed that much, it came back that indeed I was in fact 320lbs. That's about 150lbs overweight according to the "doctors". I'll say that's about 100lbs away from where I need to be. I honestly do not look like I weigh that much and I would've never guessed it either until I stepped on a scale for myself. But this is where I'm at and this is where I realized I need to fix what's going on. I haven't been sleeping normally since I entered the military and that's finally having a toll on my body.

Sad to say that My Journey To 400 is coming to an end due to said reasons.

Finally figuring out why I was so fatigued all the time made me not really want to do anything for long periods of time other than lying down and sleeping. But I feel better already knowing what exactly is wrong with me, (even though it's more than just a weight and sleep thing). I finally can make a plan of attack for being a more productive person in life. Not to mention I stopped working two jobs and my school load is significantly lighter than it was a couple of months ago.

Everything is on the up and up physically.

Blog wise things are doing great. Even though I stopped posting five times a week and promoting heavily on my personal Twitter account, I managed to get more likes this January than I did last January, along with the fact that this month beat out December 2015. I'm glad to be getting to that point where I don't need to really self promote that much because it was kind of tiring trying to do all of that stuff and work a full time job. And I'm just glad you guys are still supporting me like it was yesterday.

Also the post before this, I'm A Writer, Not A Blogger, was the 400th post here on my blog. I'm proud of that accomplishment, and I'm even more proud of the fact that as of this writing I am at 187,000 page views. So by the end of the month I will definitely be at 200,000 blog views. (another major milestone that I'm glad to be seeing). I'm thankful for every single click on the blog that has come my way and I'm looking forward to knocking down more milestones.

The 52 Week Money Challenge is coming along just fine for me, so I hope it's coming along just fine for you guys. This months outlook looks like this:

Week 6: $6 (Account Balance: 21)
Week 7: $7 (Account Balance: 28)
Week 8: $8 (Account Balance: 36)
Week 9: $9 (Account Balance: 45)

That's about it for the first month of the year. February is going to be a busy month for me, look for some reviews coming up that's not going to be during the normal posting schedule days. It's black history month, so I have a post coming in regards to that dealing with TV Shows. It's also Valentine's Day month so be on the lookout for that post coming as well. The shortest month of the year is looking like the most busiest one so far, how ironic.
