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
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
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
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
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
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
How can it be not what it is, when being is in itself?
Gibberish? Exactly. Spock’s Beard, to be precise
Interview today went…actually, I have no idea. Decent enough, I ... Read more
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
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
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
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
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
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
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?

So, speaking in terms of actuality, nothing has changed since last Friday, around 7 PM. But when you enter the realm of reality…
I wrote a blog Friday with a couple of songs linked, both of which suggest that perception is reality. The nex... Read more
