Moving is good for losing weight?

Monday, July 30, 2012      3 comments

And no, I'm not talking about moving in terms of getting up and exercising, although come to think of it, that might work, too. If only there were a web site dedicated to motivating us to do so... I speak of the act of packing up all your ... Read more

Does spending more time on this site actually alter habits?

Saturday, July 28, 2012      5 comments

Started the month a certain number of spark points away from the next level (5500 pts) and thought, I want get there. So I did. Meant reading a few more articles, taking a few more quizzes, not too much extra time, but a bit. And now I'm curious... Read more

Monday wasn't all that bad, I must say

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      3 comments

I began the week at the dentist's office, going in for a cleaning and emerging with a filling. First cavity since, as far as I can recall, the 80s. So I walked around half the day (4-5 hours, anyway) with half my jaw numb, thinking, hey, I could... Read more

Went for a walk...at 3 AM

Sunday, July 22, 2012      8 comments

Not a huge walk, just a quick 10 minute jaunt, headed into the park a bit, listened to the frogs and other night time creatures sing their songs. It was dark, other than the brightly lit oasis in the middle, so the stars were shining, but I'd st... Read more

Numbers

Thursday, July 19, 2012      3 comments

Never did manage to scribble down relevant numbers at the start of this trip, other than that big scarlet numeral of the weight. Was thinking the other day that I was curious about the size of this and that portion of my anatomy, so when I found... Read more

one little victory

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      4 comments

The scale was kind this morning, showing a number not too far away from where I was at the end of April, when dreams of reaching the goal weight swirled betwixt the tendrils of thought roaming my brainspace. Didn't really help matters much by go... Read more

Got my car back, two days early

Monday, July 16, 2012      2 comments

Someone canceled an appt at the dealership, and they snuck my vehicle into the slot. So I walk the couple of miles out there, in 98 degree heat, arrive soaked through with sweat and rescued my steed. The tests they did made it seem like it was a... Read more

The end of Fitchburg days

Sunday, July 15, 2012      1 comments

As mentioned, moving soon from the current apt. in Fitchburg, over to the east side of Madison. I'll miss living across from McKee Farms Park, which until this spring would have been more of a generic statement than a real one. But I've actually... Read more

Well, I was going to go to Milwaukee

Saturday, July 14, 2012      2 comments

But I was low on gas, and so I stopped at Speedway, after passing by the BP station I usually stop at, after passing by the Mobil station that I stop at if I don't choose the BP. And I fill up at the Speedway, which I've only done once or twice ... Read more

Flipping the mental coin

Thursday, July 12, 2012      6 comments

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

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      2 comments

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

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      3 comments

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...

Sunday, July 01, 2012      2 comments

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

Impromptu exercise

Saturday, June 23, 2012      3 comments

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

Sunday, June 17, 2012      1 comments

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
