SATURDAY morning was come, and all the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life.

Sunday, February 03, 2013      2 comments

Well, of course, it isn’t Saturday, and obviously, it’s not summer out there, but when you’ve got a Mark Twain book in your hands (or on the computer, as it were), things do seem a bit brighter and fresher, don’t they? Spending this lazy Sunday ... Read more

atch?v=K7ToNJHgp-w After a week of no jogging, I tried it again on Thursday. The last time I did, I went 6 laps (half-mile), and Thursday I went 9. Didn’t quit... Read more

Fabulous Disaster

Abs are sore, as expected, but not really that bad, considering. In a way, it’s nice, proof of concept that abdominal muscles do exist, under that flab emoticonRead more

rambletastic!

Couple of random thoughts, just to keep alive this silly blog a day streak. I'm getting kind of bored with it, so it'll likely die a natural death soon, but that won't be tonight. BLC TNT was a PITA, where the "a" stands for Abs. Downloade... Read more

atch?v=GEbPgPnQvNI& I set some very modest goals for this BLC 21 challenge. In my post from January 6, just 23 days ago, I said that over the next 12-13 w... Read more

ain't no poet, I

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)

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

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

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
