I have all kindsa time for a workout now if I want to. I have been off the regimen for a while now, so I suppose it will be tough to get going again...wish me luck!

    I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to ramp up the exercise to lose the excess weight I had packed on at my desk.

Congratulations on your retirement, and best wishes for a very long retirement!

editing the mp3

Friday, April 12, 2013

I was loading the mp3 player for the driving trip to Alabama to visit the in laws (outlaws?) and I told herself that I had already put on some Lynyrd Skynyrd and some Moody Blues on and..."do you want anything special?"

Know what my southern wife requested??

Pink Floyd!!!

I am listening to an album called Bloodline by a band called Bloodline.
Bloodline is a band that produced 1 album. Fairly metalish but with nods to blues and jazz, and skilled musicianship is involved as the band includes:

drummer Erin Davis (son of Miles Davis)
rhythm guitarist Waylon Krieger (son of Robby Krieger)
and bassist and lead vocalist Berry Oakley, Jr. (son of Berry Oakley of the Allman Bros. band),
along with a 14 year old Joe Bonamassa

Pretty hot. Check 'em out...

Today is my one year sparkaversary. I am down 40 lbs from the outset, which is good, but gained some poundage back over the holidays to get to here. The scale is going the correct direction again, at least...:-)

I decided I had to rewind my ticker and "start fresh"...so far, so good.

the holiday setback

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Whelp....I thought I was behaving but the scale, as they say, doesn't lie.
I am up 13.5 lbs since just before thanksgiving.
I am starting over today 12/27/12.
I rewound my lbs lost ticker to zero with a 50 lb goal.

I am sick right now...nausea, fever, sore throat, coughing up lung butter....
sounds like the flu....I got a shot so this must be an alternate bug. nertz.
I didn't let all that get in the way of a good workout yesterday and today, of course, was digging out from under the white stuff.

When I started 49 weeks ago, I had little real trouble getting myself from morbidly obese to just obese. Lets see if I can start over and get to "normal."
