I’ve been away from the scale for a while. I’ve avoided it because I’ve cheated. I drank a bottle of wine with my dinner the other night and it sure didn’t help me out any. In the last seven days, I have continued to lose weight. It’s slower than I’d like, but it’s still on a downward trend. It’s my behaviors that have slowed it down. I’m finding it emotionally difficult to fight cravings. Salt is the biggest craving I have. On Paleo we eliminated adding any salt.Continue Reading
On Thursday, I felt bad all day. I might have a sinus infection or a cold coming on. I spent most of my day trying to download and convert my audio-books to .mp3 format. Rather than committing to writing fiction, I committed to a functional task that I could do with minimal thought. I figured it out with some help from the internet, but I failed to do a lot of things around the house.
For those that don’t know, I’m not a man of leisure, nor am I retired, though I’d be hard pressed to prove otherwise. I was laid off in December of 2014 after 7 years with the same company and a decade in the same industry.

TRANSCRIPT of the Podcast:
Hi everyone, I’m Tommy Balassa. My apologies for today’s podcast being late.
I recorded Episode 0003 a month ago but refused to upload it, because I was worried listeners would think it was stupid because it wasn’t scripted and my vocabulary wasn’t clear, it just sounded bad.
I’m not doing things I enjoy during the week and by the time Friday gets here for my “CREATIVE DAY” I’m worn out and don’t feel creative and end up asking myself “What’s the point?”.
By the time Sunday rolls around I have family commitments to deal with, though I could fit it in if I needed too, but instead I detach from the shame I feel and wallow in failure.
Why am I recording this today? It’s Friday and I’ve made a tiny change and it’s unexpectedly working right now. I’ve recognized it’s working and why. That means I have to share it.
My hope is that this will continue and I’ll return to my creative life.Continue Reading
