I am watching The Punisher. I love the movie and I love the comic book.
I have always liked comic books. There have been times in my life that the only thing that offered me any type of happiness has been comic books. I have never been an avid collector, but I have been an avid reader. I never collected them. When I was finished with them I would pass them on to someone else who would enjoy them as much as I.
A guy I went to school with (we were not close friends, just in some classes together) was found dead this morning. He passed away sometime during the night of a heart attack. He as a little less than a year older than me. That scares me. I mean, he is not the first person to die that I went to school with. All of those deaths however, have been from accidents, suicides and drug over doses. None of them have been related to a health problem like that. I am the same age.
I think that is part of the reason I am trying to hard to lose weight and to get healthy is I don't want to have a heart attack at the age of 31. I really like my life, and I want to enjoy it.
We are taking Leroy to another vet for a second opinion. I am really thinking he has feline asthma. I was watching videos on Youtube of cats having asthma attacks, and Leroy exhibits all of those signs. There has to be something more we can do for the little guy. I am willing to do anything I need to, so that he is happy and healthy. I love him.
I weigh in tomorrow and of course I am a little nervous. Once again, I have been doing everything right (except going to the gym this week, I was really lazy on that) but we will see how things work out.
I need to get back to the gym starting tomorrow. I admit that I didn't go at all this week, I don't really have an excuse. I wish I did, but I don't. I figure with a weeks worth of rest, my body won't be used to anything I have been doing and will respond better? Ok, maybe not, but it is wishful thinking.
I think that is all for now

I lost 3 pounds! I am so excited! The weirdest part was, I was really sick and only went to the gym once, and i lost three pounds?
I have been really sick. It has been horrible. I am just now starting to feel better. Today was the first day I wasn't chained to my Neti Pot every 2 hours.
We went today and got a pick-up load of mulch. I did a lot of shoveling. I pretty much shoveled the entire load. My boyfriend was spreading it around and I shoveled it into the wheelbarrow and dumped it off. I actually like doing that. I did enjoy myself, but it was hard work. I also got a wicked sunburn that hurts.
Not to keep whining, but... my arm hurts. Last week, I got stung by a wasp, not once, not twice, but three times. My arm swelled up, I was bleeding, it hurt... but anyway, my arm still hurts. I thought it was the bee sting, but it isn't. I must have done something to my muscle, because the top of my arm hurts.
Ohhh... and after all of that back breaking yard work, I washed my Jeep. Look how pretty

No, really... don't be a drag!
That song has been on the radio twice since I came to work. I really like Lady GaGa, but after hearing her same song over and over it gets a little tiring. That isn't her fault. That is the radio station's fault.
I have managed to catch a cold again. It is retched. I hate it. The only thing that has offered me any type of relief has been the Neti Pot. It is a little strange to get used to, but once I did, it is great. It has really helped my throat. Last night was the first night I actually slept in a few days. I didn't sleep that much, but it was better than what I had been getting.
I took a sneak peak on my scale this morning, and it says I am down 4 pounds, but I don't know how accurate those scales really are. I am interested to see what my weight is tomorrow. I know I have only been to the gym once this week, and until I am feeling better, will not be going. I don't work out when I am sick. Not only because it makes me feel worse, but I also don't out of respect for the other people at the gym. I don't want to be around sick people, so I extend the same courtesy to others.
Once again, the Neti Pot is awesome
