I mean, that's the problem, no sweat, not gymming, not bolted to the floor biking, not airbag whaling, nor any of the other physical activities that might induce a loss in the weight game. This week has been a galling example of that, with essen... Read more
I woke up more or less refreshed this morning
And that despite only getting about 5 hours of sleep after I went to bed at night. That was, of course, supplemented by the 2+ hour nap I took immediately after getting home from work, wherein I just conked right out. Frankly, if I hadn't mis-ap... Read more
Change of shade, change of attitude?
Hey, how come camera phone software doesn't come with "negative image" filters any more? Saw the pic of me with that filter, it made me chuckle, I put it back in as my profile pic. Whether it changes anything, I kinda doubt. The new year seems t... Read more
Congrats, you survived 2016
Aka, Happy New Year.
I don't make resolutions. So here I am, making a resolution: I will begin 2018 weighing less than the gargantuan 216.4 I weighed in at this morning.
Given how ludicrous a figure that is, I'm not exactly setting a h... Read more
Top ten favorite albums?
Someone asked that question on fb, and i saw it at about 5 am and came up with this list. The top 5 haven't changed in ages, and I'm not sure if it's true any more, what with not having listened to the U2 album in ages. The second 5...2 or 3 of ... Read more
went to do a sleep test on Saturday night. Figured there was little chance of sleeping, what with being keyed up after the Michigan Ohio State game (freakin' zebras), but they said to turn off the cell phone, so I did, and then the lights went o... Read more
On the other hand
(If you're like me, that title would have made you think of Fiddler on the Roof)
Having a longer contract is nice, but the hour commute in each direction is a bit annoying.
Eating two meals at home daily is nice, the outside lunch is s... Read more
Climbed a staircase while chatting with a United States Senator
Went to a election campaign event Monday night, held at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, MI, featuring a trio of US Senators, Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters of Michigan, and Cory Booker of New Jersey, along with Congresswoman Debbie Di... Read more
Been a few weeks since I've thrown a weight on here. I've actually seesawed a bit the last three weeks. The first of those weeks, starting a new job, ran into a bit of a buzzsaw that made things very stressful right off the bat, and the weight d... Read more
I hate paying the fat tax
You know, the one where you go to a fantastic concert, and you're thinking you'd like to buy a t-shirt, something you don't do too often at shows, but this band, they're that incredibly amazing, that you want to buy a shirt, and then you look at... Read more
214.2, a jog in the wrong direction
Yeah, but I'm taking the weight after dinner (or I was, when I started scribbling this entry hours and hours ago), and stuff, and things have conspired to result in my eating less than well for a couple of days, and, 214.2 isn't a bad number und... Read more
On the right track, anyway. Let's see if this positive trajectory survives the next few weeks. I'll be heading down to Atlanta just after Labor Day for the ProgPower festival, the concert fest I've gone down for the last few years. Right now, my... Read more
Been a couple weeks, and there's a persistent first step loss. That's cool, I guess. Get to go back to the doctor's office tomorrow, a annual physical, but it seems like the visit to discuss the BP and A1C and diet stuff with the nurse a couple ... Read more
late night pudding
Oh, don't mind me, just calling myself out on a bit of dumbassery (let's see if that one gets past the spark censors!) that may well be reflected on a scale near you. I mean, me. The one in my bathroom, I mean. Funny thing, the scale this mornin... Read more
That's the new high score. On the scale, where you don't want new high scores. This is after the month in nebraska, and after a week traipsing around the Upper Peninsula of Michigan chasing waterfalls, and visiting friends in Wisconsin. I only c... Read more
