So it’s been a while since I updated anything on here. Life gets busy. Here are the highlights of 2018.
I sold my house in January and moved to Georgia for a 9 month Army school. (WOBC)
I learned to track my eating and lifted weights for 7 months which resulted in me loosing 20 lbs and getting stronger.
I can bench 225lbs, squat 170lbs, and deadlift 325lbs on my best of best days.
I graduated Honor grad (2nd in the class) from my WOBC course at the end of August. I’m a fully qualified 255A and up for CW2 next May.
I received a promotion at my civilian job to Information Security Manager. Yes I’m that IT security nerd. But it’s fun stuff!
We moved back to Overland Park, Kansas over Labor Day weekend.
The kids are back in school and I’m back at work this week. We are getting settled into our new house and new routines quite nicely after a busy, busy 3 weeks.
Amy and I joined the crossfit gym across the street from our house. It’s fun and challenging.
I learned that property tax is done differently in KS vs MO.
Moving is expensive, even when you save and plan for it. So many small things you have to buy.
More updates to come later. Follow me on twitter @derekcreason for semi more frequent updates and Amy’s instagram stories are probably the most up to date of our random day to day lives. We are having a blast living life and embracing this new chapter of our lives including new job, new school, new church, new neighbors, new community, new gym, new friends, new drivers licenses, new car tags, and some of our favorites to include same friends, same chiefs fans, same awesome KC metro, same KC BBQ, and more! Be sure to say hi or come over and see the new place!
Until next time, Stay positive and embrace challenges. Or some other motivational quip…. 🙂
