Flipping the mental coin
How likely am I to fit in those size 34 waist jeans at any point soon? Is there any hope of ever using the 33 waist dress pants for myself again?
It's the pre-preparation process for moving that has me pondering these precious proposition, ... Read more
Feels like being on a treadmill sometimes
Not in a particularly good place regarding the weight loss journey, the alternate view of the past two months' weight change has taken hold of me, and I can't shake that perception, despite your (much appreciated!) efforts. And taking my mind of... Read more
It's all in how you look at it
Or, an entirely different theory of relativity. You know how I mentioned being okay with losing in June about half the weight I put on in May? Today, a different interpretation struck me, that in the past 4 months, I've managed to shed just a si... Read more
July already? Geez...
The initial goal was to get down to 180 lbs, and at the end of April, it was within reach, 5 lbs away. May was rough, a +7 pound month, with some known and somewhat expected causes. June for the most part was positive, about 4 lbs down, leaving ... Read more
Went to a local concert last night, in lieu of going to Chicago to see a rarely touring (the US, anyway) band that I like, for lack of funds. Oh well, whatchugunnado? For the first time in forever, though, I got to the venue and realized that I ... Read more
I always hitch my name to the wrong star
The title isn't to be taken seriously, it's a line from "The Cardinal and I", from the new, self-titled echolyn album. And though I claim Rush to be my favorite band, and their new disc is pretty sweet, this one takes the cake and the cookies, a... Read more
well, that didn't take long
Maybe it's a function of getting old, but I usually manage to hurt my leg(s) once or twice a summer, playing ultimate and/or softball. One of the recurring issues is a calf pull, usually occurring towards the middle of the summer league ultimate... Read more
With lazy being the operational word. Sports heavy, what with a couple of Euro 2012 games, the Tigers game being the free mlb.tv game of the day, and Stanley Cup game 5 and nba ECF game 7 flittering across my TV and computer all day. As might be... Read more
I am, at best (worst?) a social drinker. Right now, I have a dozen beers in my fridge, and a new bottle of rum, but they were purchased with the idea that a few friends would come over on Saturday. A couple of friends did make it over, the first... Read more
Roll on June
Though politics can be a tricky subject on line, I think I can offer this thought safely - as someone who is usually a political junkie (reading multiple blogs from both sides daily, etc), I'm shocked at how very sick I am of all the advertising... Read more
So much for that plan
Didn't end up going to play ultimate because I looked at the weather report for about the time that game would have started, and there was a line of thunderstorms bearing down on Madison. The storm did hit...but it was relatively brief, so I gue... Read more
94 degrees out there right now
Glad I didn't decide to go out and even casually play frisbee today. Been out there plenty already, what with starting the day helping a friend move her stuff into her new place. What with her dad and boyfriend also assisting, the process only t... Read more
So much for chattiness
Penned a number of blog entries in a short span, and then, boom, two week gap. When did that happen?
Is it fair to blame a 1 year old child for weight gain? The child in question is my nephew, who did just turn one last Monday, the 14th, a... Read more
Going to sleep well tonight
In fact, can I go to bed already? Between illness, injury and apathy, and a dose of less than ideal weather, I hadn't done any running in a month. I don't mean running running, since I've never done much of that for its own sake - I need a ball ... Read more
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
