Today, 4/12/14 marks my 3 year sparkversary, yay.
This wasn't a great week. My back has been giving me fits for the last couple of weeks and it got worse this week. I've been getting "twitchy" feelings everyday and that's not a good sign. It usually signals the the back is going to go out. So last night my best friend who now lives 8 hours away was in town and we met up at the tattoo studio he used to work for. We ended up standing around for 4 hours, just hanging out with one of the artists and an apprentice and their girlfriends.
I came home about 11:45 and my back was really twitchy. As I stepped out of my truck, I sneezed. That is not a good thing to do when you have a bad back and you're in a twisted position. I made it a few steps and then collapsed, legs totally buckling under me. Luckily I was quick enough to throw myself across the hood of a car parked beside me, which kept me from hitting the ground. I finally got back upright and walked a bit further and it hit again. This time I fell across the hood of my truck, saving me from the ground once again. Once I got stood up and started moving again it tried to go out again and I just held myself between the truck and a brick wall. I eventually made it into the house.
Anyway, on to the numbers:
Weight : 225.4
Gain : 1.8
Total : 94.6
For the record, today kind of sucks because of my back. My left leg has been real shaky all day and I'm shuffling more than actually walking.
Sorry for the rambling, I'm currently floating on Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) muscle relaxer.

This was a better week for me, not stupendous, but much better. My birthday was on Monday the 31st and I had a good sized dinner. Ribeye steak, shrimp, rice pilaf... good eats!
The weight from last week started to come off and that was a good sign. It fluttered a bit for a few days but I was still able to post a loss this week. I came up short of erasing last week's gain, but at this stage of the game any loss is worth being happy about!
So on to the numbers for the week:
Weight : 223.6
Lost : 1.8
Total : 96.4
I still have 2 lbs from last week to lose, but I'm not going to sweat it, it will come off when the time is right. I just hope that the right time is soon!!!!
That's about it for now, have a great weekend everybody :)

Happy Spring everyone :)
Not much to report this week, I didn't gain or lose any weight, stayed exactly the same. Which I believe would technically be more difficult to do! But that's where I'm at this week, maintenance.
I thought for sure I was going to post a loss this week, but for some reason everything just stalled the last couple of days and it didn't happen. Oh well, there's always next week!
Here's the numbers for the week:
Weight : 221.6
Lost : 0.0
Total : 98.4
I did something on Friday afternoon that I have never done before. I don't want to go into it much right now because I want to work on some things and see how things pan out for a while. But what I did should turn out to be very good for me and involved being very relaxed.
With that being said, I hope you all have a great weekend!

I'm going to make this blog post short because I'm a little tired. After lunch today my son and I went and visited the Castle Air Museum, at what used to be Castle Air Force Base (until Clinton shut it down in the 90's). It is one of the top air museums in the nation and is visited by people from around the world.
Well today it was about 80 degrees and we were walking around for more than an hour with very little shade. 80 isn't real hot for here, but it should only be about 64 right now, so 80 is scorching (and it's still technically Winter!)
Anyway, on to the numbers for this week:
Weight : 221.6
Lost : 1.8
Total : 98.4
After last weeks soul crushing gain of 1.0 lb I was able to turn things around and lose 1.8 lbs. Makes it a lot easier to move ahead after posting a nice loss this week.
Have a great weekend :)
