Another update, and I’ll start working and logging again soon. Life hasn’t gotten easier. Still going through what is turning out to be a contentious divorce. There have been family health problems that culminated in my father passing away on July 27th. My mom is still going through some health issues, but is on the road to doing well health-wise. Just finished last weekend moving her from her old house, which is a 75 year old 2 story 3000 sf farmhouse which was way too big and maintenance intensive for her, into a new, 1300 sf one story just down the road from my brother, so she’s doing well. My daughter is going to be moving up to Kansas with me as soon as she’s done helping my mom get settled into her new place. Also, just started a plant outage, so it’s 12 hour days 6 days a week for the next 2 months.
With the way the roller coaster of life has been, I’ve not been spending any time in the gym, but it’s time to get back to work. I still have family to be there for, and if I don’t take care of myself, I’m no good for anyone else. This next week or 2 will be light whole-body workouts to get my body used to working again, then it’s back on a 5/3/1 variant, once I decide what will work best around an outage schedule.
