Ups and Downs

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      5 comments

So, the building I work in added a gym. No cost, you just have to have your building ID card programmed for access. It opened last week and I've been twice and I'm going again tonight. One of my co-workers is working hard on diet and exercise ... Read more

Forward Progress

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      6 comments

I hate to update my weight on here when I know it's up. So I waited until it was down before updating (even if I'm waiting months in between updates.) But I'm down a half pound from when I last made an entry. I don't confess this to too m... Read more

So I've been doing pretty well on the exercise front, exercising at least a little bit every day (riding my exercise bike) and trying to do more strength exercises a few times a week and walking as often as I can. I'm averaging bout 30 minutes ... Read more

Game day

I realized I never posted a picture of the finished scroll. So here it is: I worked on it up to the weekend before Coronation (which was Memorial day weekend) and it pret... Read more

Busy things

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      1 comments

I've been packing for the last several weeks for a move into my temporary office. (I'll be getting a permanent office of my own in 6-8 weeks when the build out is done.) It's been a little stressful but fortunately work is otherwise slow at th... Read more

I've been working on a scroll (which I waited until the last minute to do) and I'm kind of pleased with how it's coming out. When I realized I was running out of time, I decided to do it in two parts; the calligraphy, essential stuff and ... Read more

Work stuff

Tuesday, May 01, 2012      4 comments

Today was going to be sorta slow and easy. Pilots are over and the only thing in production right now are a few animated shows, but my day got totally derailed by one of those "OMG! THIS HAS TO BE DONE RIGHT NOW OR HEADS WILL ROLL" kind of proj... Read more

Weekend report!

Monday, April 30, 2012      1 comments

I had a pretty good weekend. It was mostly gaming (which means sitting down eating junk food) but I brought carrots to both game sessions and at least on Sunday I didn't eat anything junky. Last Star Wars game for a while (I'll miss it) on Sat... Read more

Pilot season

Saturday, February 25, 2012      3 comments

I'm still in the middle of pilot season. The bulk of it will be over in about 5 weeks. I just have to get through it. I've been working until 7pm nearly every night and still not getting enough done. There is a lot of junk food in the ... Read more

The last two weeks have been really stressful, all work related. I had my annual review (which last year was the worst ever). This year it started out bad, but I pointed out all the things they were allegedly complaining about, I was doing (fr... Read more

Weekend report

Sunday, January 22, 2012      1 comments

Went to Unbelted Tourney yesterday. It started out rainy but not too cold, then the wind blew the cloud cover away and it was cold and windy. I was dressed in wool Elizabethan though and wasn't too cold. I got a lot of compliments on the outf... Read more

It's funny

Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

I've been floundering for so long with the weight/food/exercise quandry but I don't know what clicked a few weeks ago when I decided to come back to Sparkpeople and also do the Change One program. I've been going for 5 weeks now of exercising e... Read more

I found a dress in my closet and thought I could wear it to a wedding tomorrow but alas it's way too small. (Okay....I could actually get it on but I looked like a stuffed sausage.) I decided I will try it on every ten pounds. It will give me... Read more

Work has been unpleasant the last couple of days. Too much to do and not enough time to do it, and a problem that won't go away plus everyone wanting me to drop what I'm doing to take care of their rush emergencies. On the other hand, I've... Read more

I'm back

Wednesday, December 28, 2011      2 comments

I decided a few weeks ago I really needed to do something so I'm back using sparkpeople as a tool. I'm also doing something from a Reader's Digest book called Change One. Basically changing one thing per week. I started with exercise (even th... Read more
