Call me Yorkie!

Because I'm hanging out in the bustling city of York, Pennsylvania for the next two to three weeks for work, not because I've taken a turn for the canine worse (or would that be better?). Basically, I sent out an e-mail at 1:50 PM on Wednes... Read more
Ugh and crud

Nothing really wrong,other than feeling like a blob today. The weight is at 228, which, frankly isn't that far out of line, given the highly social weekend i just had. Wasn't too horrible food wise, but beer wise, I did indulge. But, given the d... Read more
What happens at 2 AM apparently stays at 2 AM

So, way late last night, or this morning, as it were, I typed out a blog post, saying stuff about how that new med might be working, or I might be experiencing a positive placebo effect, as I'd made it to the gym 4 times last week, and again on ... Read more
So it turns out that I'm ever so slightly afraid of stabbing myself

Talking about injecting myself with a med, rather than anything else that might imply, not to worry. Post surgery, certain levels were off, so I got a script for an intramuscular injectable, and I decided to get the home version (drug plus a fe... Read more
I suppose I should have updated this before now

Seeing as how mentioning an impending surgery and then disappearing is a bit rude. Sorry 'bout that. So I survived. Got to spend a couple extra days in the hospital because I wasn't peeing right, by their reckoning. Raw hospital bills of we... Read more

So, this procedure I'm going to have done at 730 AM on Wednesday is pretty straightforward, and being performed by a surgeon that is very experienced in this procedure. So, basically, I haven't really worried about it at all. But then I go to th... Read more
funny how things work out sometimes

So, my previous work contract ended on May 5. It was supposed to run until the 4th of July, more or less. But budgetary issues caused a reassessment on their part, and we were all told the project was ending early. Why they couldn't have just le... Read more

That's the size of the tumor squatting in my skull, not even paying rent for that prime real estate. On the good side, it's not cancer. Rather, a benign pituitary outgrowth. On the other side, brain tumor! If you're curious, or o... Read more
I pooped at 2 am this morning!

The alternate title might have "what the frack? Spark People giving out awards for logging in one day in a row?" but I failed to figure out at first glace how to post a pic from my spark gallery into a blog, so I went with the poop. And I d... Read more

You know, Gym, Taxes, Laundry? Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm a slacker on that middle item. But hey, it's still March, and I'm starting, and that's actually improvement. I know the old line about how waiting on it is basically like giving the governme... Read more
New high score: 222.2
Friday, February 24, 2017      1 comments

just a matter of factual statement here, no plea for sympathy, help, or anything of the sort. Not even a "I must and will do better" pledge, even if both conditions apply. Like I said, just a statement of fact, hit and run blog. Something that i... Read more
Sweat...and pain

Had an elbow thing a few weeks ago, can't recall if I mentioned it in this space or not. Went to shrug off a heavy winter coat, and while it still hung on my arm behind my back, I felt an excruciating pain in the elbow. Over the next couple of d... Read more
no sweat

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
