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
well, that didn't take long
Wednesday, June 13, 2012      5 comments

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
Lazy Saturday
Sunday, June 10, 2012      2 comments

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
