ain't no poet, I

Tuesday, January 29, 2013      3 comments

Precipitation thunder and lightning galore wet shoes are no fun Yeah, that's all I've got for poetry. Hit the library today and grabbed some books to read. "I love you Beth Cooper" was one, partly because the title sounded like som... Read more

If pants fall in a grocery store, and no one sees it, is it still a NSV?

Monday, January 28, 2013      25 comments

Short answer: heck yeah it is. Funny thing, it took me a while to recognize it as such, and then only after reading about Emma’s (emmaekay) Zumba adventures. She mentioned needing to Macgyver herself a new belt, and I thought about a time, long ... Read more

The weather as a sad excuse

Sunday, January 27, 2013      5 comments

So it was snowing pretty hard (and unexpectedly, as I hadn't looked at the forecast for today) when I finally decided to go to the gym, and I let it stop me, rationalizing that I really didn't want to go anyway. I mean, I'd sat around reading al... Read more

When will then be now? Soon! (perhaps)

Saturday, January 26, 2013      4 comments

BLC bloggy topic asking along the lines of “how are you going to feel when you get to your fitness/weight goals?” And the short answer is, “Heck if I know!” (aka HIIK!, a very useful acronym). The extended edition of this flick has alterna... Read more

Dancing through the ups and downs

Friday, January 25, 2013      10 comments

A BLC teammate wondered aloud about losing some weight and then going into a self-sabotage phase, and as that's more or less been my story since jumping onto sparkpeople, I rambled on a bit about it. I absolutely identify with her tale, bec... Read more

Don’t think there is much of a difference, honestly

Thursday, January 24, 2013      3 comments

I’m one of those people who are slow to appreciate differences in others who have lost weight, sometimes saying nothing lest I insult someone who hasn’t actually lost weight. That tendency extends to my own self, in terms of not feeling like the... Read more

It's a moron, of the oxy persuasion

Wednesday, January 23, 2013      3 comments

I can’t recall the last time I had caffeine. I had a 12 pack of Coke Zero that ran out at some point before January 9th. I know this, because I went into a grocery store looking for a particular grapefruit package that was on a good sale, a... Read more

All that is shall be in the world

How can it be not what it is, when being is in itself? Gibberish? Exactly. Spock’s Beard, to be precise http://www.youtube.com/w
atch?v=yXtLLdNu6ag Interview today went…actually, I have no idea. Decent enough, I ... Read more

Gummi bears for a shot?

Monday, January 21, 2013      3 comments

Trying to look back on stuff I used to do 5, 7, 9 years ago, and dredging up a ton of memories. The details are pretty fuzzy, even if I did take the retrospective peek a couple of times during the last year. All in all, it's been like being back... Read more

Fool for your running

Sunday, January 20, 2013      8 comments

Title's going to have to wait until I find out what I end up typing out. Today's wog tilted towards the run, with the mile breaking down as 7/12ths run, 5/12ths walk. Which means that I ran a third of a mile (and a separate quarter mile) without... Read more

A thoroughly unmoving entry

Saturday, January 19, 2013      7 comments

You know, as opposed to a video blog where at least my mouth is moving? I tried rambling into the webcam embedded in this laptop, which I've used just a handful of time in the 9 months I've had this machine, and kept running out of steam. Either... Read more

A partial eclipse of the lamb

Friday, January 18, 2013      7 comments

BLC21 dictates doing something I haven’t managed before this weekend, so I’ll try to drink 8 glasses of water for the next four days. Wish my bladder luck. It also dictates 20 minutes of cardio a day (easy enough), interacting with other member ... Read more

You strong enough to be beautiful?

Thursday, January 17, 2013      7 comments

The music tonight, or this too early morn, as it were, is Marillion again. Just got through listening to Cannibal Surf Babe, off their 1996 masterpiece, "Afraid of Sunlight", and it's on to one my faves of theirs, "Beautiful". It's just a heart-... Read more

Wog a mile in my shoes...

Wednesday, January 16, 2013      7 comments

Stretched out on the couch, typing this over the offending belly, and thinking, rationally, that this thing was probably, objectively larger a year ago, 16 months ago. Too bad I failed to measure at the outset of the trip. One of the pre ta... Read more

Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance

Tuesday, January 15, 2013      9 comments

Because where else are you going to hear a metal band talking about the eyes of praying mantises and weaving that into theology couched in a ton of medical/anatomical terminology? http://www.youtube.com/w
