2016 to 2017
2016 had a lot of successes and some non-successes.
Not so much failures because if I didn't succeed, I learned.
I was able to accomplish a lot of challenges.
I didn't do as well on some as I had wanted.
Overall, I got out and did stuff.
I am starting the year out heavy.
The end of the year was bad for me and I put on weight again.
I did do better shopping and have made it to the gym a bit but still not doing well in that struggle.
I made a lot of improvement in my conditioning.
My walking/rucking improved a lot.
My strength and high intensity training is still seriously lacking.
2017 I have a LOT of events planned.
Many of them are in support of various veteran PTSD and suicide awareness groups.

February and March have other things going and not a lot of events.
There are a few out there that I might go for.
Not sure yet.
At this point, I am not sure what will be my main charity drive.
What I will be raising money for.
I have supported several different ones like Carry the Fallen, AFSP, and Operation: 23 To Zero.
