Was watching the rain pour down...
a) ...but in the 15 minutes since I opened this window, the cats and dogs have ceased and the day has considerably brightened. I'm almost tempted to go play some mud frisbee. But not quite tempted enough.
b) I seem to have failed my first ... Read more
Not literally, though. Collecting more sparkfriends, via the route of clicking on some of your friends, and then clicking on some of their friends, and picking a couple based on...well, just because they seem to be paying some attention to the s... Read more
The strangest colored lights
Walked to the movie theater today. 4.6 miles round trip, wonder why I haven't done it before today, I've lived in this apartment nearly three years. Ended up watching "The Five Year Engagement", literally because it was the movie beginning soon... Read more
I'm calling it
Woke up three of the last four days below the 185 end of April goal, and adding that to the three days previously that that point had been reached, I feel like the 185 goal has been achieved. Granted, with the events upcoming next month, I might... Read more
letting antisociality run wild?
More or less. I mean, Wednesday, I went to a baseball game, so I was surrounded by 25000 or so other people, and I talked to those around me throughout the game. And then Thursday/Friday, I spent most of the day around people, just not any that ... Read more
had a couple days at the intermediate goal weight, but...
Unfortunately, it was an illusion borne of illness. The whole being sick and not wanting to eat much got me under the 185 mark I'd set as an end of April goal, but the return, with a vengeance, of my appetite starting Thursday, and a less than h... Read more
If it ain't one thing, it's another...
Right as I think I'm getting through an extreme phase of one funk, I get hit with funk of another type, the kind that clogs up nasal passages and causes bad headaches. Really bad headaches. Didn't manage to get up to too much trouble on the week... Read more
Two more days of blahness, but....
The "but" here is the fact that at least I'm cognizant of it, and thinking about it, and, having mentioned it on here the day before, getting past the extreme apathy. Still not to the point of going out and doing all of what I ought to be doing,... Read more
hey look, a slacker
Been in the depths of an apathetic hole for the past ten or so days, haven't done a lick of exercise this month yet, and just not engaged with what I ought to be doing. I'm cognizant of it, just have to break out of this funk. Oddly enough, even... Read more
Follow on thought from the previous diary
So, when I last left off nattering, I mentioned looking beyond the initial goal I'd set. And that got me thinking about a few other comments I've seen along the way, in the 6 months I've now been perusing SparkPeople. One of my favorite blog ent... Read more
Over a week since the last post? Here I go again...
Recurring pattern with my bloggy efforts, I start out somewhat consistent, and then it falls to pieces. I've been oddly reluctant to scribble anything on here this week, and I'm not sure why. Not like I'm attempting to enthrall an audience or an... Read more
Nothin' wrong with these peepers
Got my eyes checked out, and there's nothing wrong save for for some dryness, that should be ok with regular drops, none of those expensive types. Still had headaches for a few days last week, and that was at least partly due to actually getting... Read more
Soul of a new machine
Got a computer today. Oddly, not particularly excited about it. Part of it may be because I went for value rather than bells and whistles, so I don't get the "check out my muscle machine" thrill. Another part of it may well be that, unlike, say ... Read more
upside down, inside out
Rough week. Fighting a huge dose of apathy, failing entirely to sticking to any sort of routine, not particularly caring about anything. Last week, I made it to the gym three times, and played basketball a 4th day. This week, Monday, I thought a... Read more
Not worried because this too shall be eaten eventually, maybe I need more lines of text to test out the force quit on the browser and the destruction of the blog post. And yes, I just quit a software qa job, and yet here I am after midnight test... Read more
