Home, fat, and the world around you.
Howdy, TBB and everyone else!

I suppose I'll just start out by giving a bit of background information about myself. I am ninteen years old, 230 lbs, and my world is going to be shaken and turned upside down. I may be complaining, and if this does not belong on this website feel free to take it down, I just want to see what everyone else thinks of this.

For a while now I've had Insanity, and so I started my Insanity reg. on my 19th birthday and made it to two weeks in before I had to take a break with it due to a business trip. It was all peachy though, as I was doing some hard work in Indiana in the summer- for those of you who aren't familiar with the area- It got HOT. I was off of Insanity for about a month, and by the time I got back, it did not seem appealing to me at the time, for whatever reasons, probably being I felt I deserved a break after my trip, whatever. Anyway- a short time after getting back I had to leave my residence with my family, and so I began to camp on my employer's land, and it was all hunky dory, I enjoyed my time there, although I was still not working out- It wasn't even in my mind at the time.

So, let's cut to this new year. I'd been relatively inactive, save for some running here and there up until this point. Now, in 2013 I'd made my resolution, like others, to do my workout routine. The first few days were brutal, I had to stop in the middle of day two and take a long rest, refilling my water, etc. Around day five however, I for some reason decided to take a day off, and now specific disks I'll eventually procrastinate and lose a day or two in getting to it. I know I can do it, but for some reason I don't. Right now I've been getting into bad habits of staying up all night doing games or movies, whatever. I've given up the games, and I know I need to reset my sleep schedule, but I feel that my sleep has been interfering with my working out. This happens regularly, my procrastination of disks.

The last bit of frosting on the cake I suppose is that I am going to be going into a voluntary homelessness I suppose. My family is moving away, renting the house I am currently staying in. I'll be getting a job in the next month or so, and there are tons of resources here for me to utilize, including lots of woodlands for me to camp out on. I know that once I have a source of income, and the rest of the circumstances will be favorable, but its nerve racking- I've never been apart like this. I know it'll be fine. Anyway, I suppose all of that is probably combining to shape me into a nerve beaten ball of blubber. I will continue to try to stick to my Insanity schedule the best I can, It will be the one constant I have in my shifting life.

Eventually, in my state of extreme money saving, I'll be able to afford to move away to be able to set my roots somewhere of my chosing. That is my goal in the short-long term.

I don't mean to complain, nor am I looking for sympathy. I suppose I am just looking for people to tell me to keep my chin up, that I will win over whatever it is I am competing with. Not that I should be asking for that either. Whatever the case may be, I look forward to chatting with anyone, reading messages. Whatever!

Hope you are all doing well!

Hi Doenitz,
Seriously, do keep your chin up. Why can't you move with your family? You said before you left on a business trip. Were you working back then? Do you have any money or savings? Are you not close to your family? What job are you looking into? Do you have friends at church or other family? I am just trying to see if there are any solutions here - if you can give a bit more info, maybe I can help point you in the right direction for some help. I will add you as a friend and you can explain more if you don't want to here.

Thanks for the positive energy! My family is moving out of the country, while I wish to stay here and enlist when I am ready. I have a lot of work to do before that time however. There are a lot of things around here to help people out, where I live. I worked as a stone shaper back then, and it may work out again in the future, I'm not sure, but I'm not really picky about what I do- minimum wage is more than enough for me to live on as I have planned. The goal through my out of the ordinary living is to break my bad habits, to become less of the old me, and to become fit to serve. I'd like to see it as a coming of age, to make it, to lose it, and to become the man I will be. It doesn't stop it from scaring my pants off! I really did enjoy stone shaping, I was working with a local sculptor on monumental abstract art. It was out of this world. I have no money at the moment, but I can make do without for a time being. My transition will happen within a few months. My plan is to save money so I can get in the required amount of schooling in, and perhaps more. I wish you all health!
