  Retirement is still great - need to make changes though

I am still enjoying retirement immensely, and still wonder how I found time to work. I attend many movies, 8 to 10 geek meetings a month, and enjoy meeting friends for lunch/dinner. The downside to my enjoyment is I am not making any appreciable progress on my retirement goals. I have gained weight rather than loosing it, go to bed way too late, and have only made minimal progress on my "review of all documents" goal.

I want to continue going out every day, and attending my movies/meetings; however, I also want to get to bed earlier, work on my "review of all documents" goal at least an hour a day, and loose at least 100 pounds. I can work on my retirement goals while still enjoying myself, I just have to find the right balance.
 
I am 98% sure I will be retiring on June 30, 2004, the last day to qualify for the retirement incentive of an extra 5 years added to your age or years of service. Update - I did take the retirement on June 30, 2004. This will be my second retirement. I retired in November 1992, again taking advantage of a retirement incentive. This retirement will be different; I will be 57 and the do not anticipate being employed full time again.
