Having a boy?

Seems like I'm trying to keep pace with my pregnant wife. This is the 1st time I've gained weight during one of her pregnancies. My 1st 2 are girls, so if you believe in old wives tales then she's having a boy. That's what the committee known as "they" says. If the husband gains weight then the woman is having a boy. That would be great since we already have 2 daughters, but it's a piss poor excuse no matter how you look at it. We chose not to find out the gender, same as the 1st 2. It is what it is. People ask us what are you having and we're like "Duh, a baby you dummy". Seems like not finding out is more uncommon these days. Ah science & technology.

Cutting through the nonsense, I am currently lacking in personal accountability. Eating too much. Exercising too little or with little intensity. More so eating too much as I've been hitting the gym 2-3x per week.

I've read much lately about creating a "vision" for your life. I've gone so far as to write out what my life will be like 1 short year from now. All positive, but lacking in specific goals on how I will reach my "destination" (aka vision).

I just have to keep filling my mind with positive thoughts. Because after all; after you strip away all the bullshit, all the excuses, all the whining - it's all about the 6 inches between your ears.

Knowledge is not power. Applied knowledge is power.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there.
