The Army still sits glacier-like...
Thursday, January 14, 2010      2 comments

Still no orders... Sunday is 6 months since I was commissioned. I've still done nothing, and they've not paid me for the privilege... so I guess it's a wash. I'm in their system somewhere... but nobody seems to know what is going on. Meh. ... Read more

I managed to walk 3.85 miles tonight on TM, I was alternating walking 3.5 mph (17 min mile) for 2 minutes with walking 4.0 mph (15 min mile) for 2 minutes... and it felt great... I mainly was going for an endurance thing rather than an exertion ... Read more
Really hating this cold...
Monday, January 11, 2010      2 comments

I made it through 9 minutes of 30 day shred.... and then ran out of gas. This is far from the worst cold I've ever had, but it is sapping my energy... so I'll just baby step it and rebuild slowly. Just frustrated... But I did manage ... Read more

Only did 38 minutes on TM tonight, but I kinda ran out of gas... and I am sure I'm coming down with a cold. But I exercised and stay just within calorie limits. My old resolved is returning... and my random playlist helped: 1)... Read more
Snow day and my back hurt...
Friday, January 08, 2010      3 comments

So I didn't exercise much. I jogged in place for 3-5 minute segments in my living room and managed to accumulate 7100 steps. Not too bad for a day when my back hurt. I laid on the floor with my legs up in my chair and became a cat couch... Read more

Fear and loathing in mid-Missouri...

Honestly, I have been afraid to step on the scale here at work. They are checked for accuracy once a year by a fellow with actual weights that are meant to do just that. So our scales are accurate to 300 lbs+. My home scale is much more f... Read more

Well the State hasn't taken Spark away yet...
Monday, December 28, 2009      5 comments

The State govt, through which we get our internet, has pretty much locked down access, but apparently SparkPeople is still considered a worthy website... YAY! But anyway. I gained a couple of pounds back over the holidays. Done with that!... Read more
