It's not you, it's me!

Monday, May 21, 2012      8 comments

Yeah, so I've been a slacker about blogging lately....don't worry, it's not you, it's me! Work has been as busy as always.....I decided to fire that guy I blogged about a... Read more

My laptop died.....should I buy a Mac?

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      21 comments

Oh no, I think the screen on my laptop bit the dust!!! I've only got a few more tricks up my sleeve before I start using it for skeet practice. Well I've been coveting a Macbook Air for a while now, secretly fondling them at Best Buy a... Read more

Angry Energy -- channel it!

Monday, May 14, 2012      11 comments

So I ended my day pretty pissed off....twice!! It was a real good thing I worked out before I got home! I had to chew out one of my division chiefs and his boss late in the day. The div chief was a real ass, bordering on unprofessional... Read more

King of the Mother's Day Buffet!

Sunday, May 13, 2012      5 comments

First off, I hope everyone had an enjoyable Mother's Day in one capacity or another. Last week, when I asked SWMBO if she wanted to do anything special for Mother's day, she said, "Yeah, let's go to Sunday Brunch!" There's this seaside... Read more

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Thursday, May 10, 2012      11 comments

Wahoo, I got in my 2 workouts today! Don't ask why it all of a sudden became so important that I get in a cardio and an ST session on the same day....I just got the idea in my head to do it, and, like a determined Rottweiler, I wasn't conte... Read more

1 of 2 workouts ain't sooooo bad.....

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      7 comments

Well 2 days in a row I got busier than I expected to at work and so curtailed my workout plans. Yesterday I got wicked swamped and stayed late, then on top of that, I had forgotten that SWMBO had her hypno-therapy to quit smoking and I offe... Read more

Cinco de Mayo recovery

Sunday, May 06, 2012      8 comments

So Cinco de Mayo went off quite nicely....and so did movie theater night at The Avengers. We hit our favorite joint (award winning Pepitos in Destin, FL), got there early (first ones in the door!), and enjoyed their most excellent chips and... Read more

Quattro de Mayo angst

Friday, May 04, 2012      5 comments

Yes, Cinco de Mayo is a big deal for us....basically an excuse to gorge on good Mexican cuisine. It's no use fighting it, it's been a household tradition for years. On top of that, #2 son is officially on his 1st date tomorrow. He and this ... Read more

An NSV for when the scales don't budge

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      9 comments

You know a totally under-appreciated NSV is being able to sit back and to see how much fitter you feel after Sparking for a while. I still like the feeling of seeing a pound or 2 drop on the goddamn-scale (or maybe it's one word: godammscal... Read more

Zombie Apocalypse!

Sunday, April 29, 2012      13 comments

I've had an interesting week....busy at work (as always), which makes personal time and family time all the more valuable. So Saturday I was sore....almost all day long from Friday's double workout of HIIT and ST. Add to that the fact that ... Read more

How do you spell relief?

Wednesday, April 25, 2012      6 comments

How do you spell relief? For me it was successful visit by my CEO....who just left today! It was a great visit, but getting everything ready these past few weeks, especially as much as I've been on the road, has been pretty taxing. Add... Read more

So my new gadget-toy arrived this weekend....the Bodymedia Fit CORE armband!! As a die-hard data ... Read more

A quick blog....in lieu of snacks!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012      6 comments

Well, here I am in Atlanta....again.....not stuck, just a long layover till my 11:00 PM connection back home....I've got a free 90 minutes, so I cranked open my little Verizon MiFi and decided to get caught up on Spark for a little bit. It'... Read more

Howling winds, closing gyms, Pad Thai, and screaming banshees!

Sunday, April 15, 2012      7 comments

Made it in to Kansas City earlier tonight....a surprisingly uneventful trip (except for the high speed abort on the runway in Atlanta....we taxied off, then got right back in line.....pilot said he had "a false positive" on an engine light) Read more
