RIP Jon Lord!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      1 comments

For those of you who followed the rock music scene in the 60's and 70's, you may have read on Monday 7/16 that Deep Purple co-founder Jon Lord (keyboards) passed away. Since I have been a long time DP fan, this one hurts just a bit more, but giv... Read more

In spite of some last minute nerves, I went ahead and went "bald" today! I think I was more nervous doing this then I was when I had WLS surgery last September! emo... <a href=Read more

Another fun clothes shopping experience...

Sunday, July 08, 2012      6 comments

Clothes shopping used to be one of my least favorite things to do. Why? Well, prior to my WLS last September, I always had a hard time finding clothes at a "normal" store like Kohls that truly fit correctly, especially pants, where finding any... Read more

"Staycation" Day 5

Friday, July 06, 2012      0 comments

A really nice day so far: - Up at 6am (I know, that does not sound like a vacation!) to walk the dogs and go the Y to run. - Fed the dogs in the AM (my DW was working today, so she'll feed them this evening) - Ah, then the best pa... Read more

"Staycation" day 4

Thursday, July 05, 2012      2 comments

Simple: early am yoga, followed by an early morning walk with our puppies, breakfast, and 18 holes of golf! It was in the low 90's but there was a breeze so it was bearable!... Read more

"Staycation" Day 3

Wednesday, July 04, 2012      2 comments

So today's story starts at 12:30AM this morning when I was awaken by one of my dogs digging at her bed. Now wide awake, I made the mistake of looking through the onscreen TV guide, and found "Independence Day", one of the movies I will watch ov... Read more

Slept VERY well last evening! No storms! On tap for day 2 of my staycation: - Finish cleaning windows in my office. 2nd floor windows and the bottom section can only be cleaned from a ladder outside. - Power wash front of ho... Read more

"Staycation" Day 1

Monday, July 02, 2012      2 comments

Well, if accomplishing things is my goal for this staycation, I'm off to a good start: - Power washed the siding by the garage and my office, which was covered with bugs (there is a motion light there and the bugs like it!). Plus I found a... Read more

What a difference a year makes!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      5 comments

Had a great run today -- 4.5 miles in 49:07 -- and was sharing with one of my colleagues who is an avid runner, when it hit me just how much has changed in the last year! A year ago -- my DW and I were in Chicago celebrating a wedding of on... Read more

Chiropractic Adjustment

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      1 comments

It had been 6 weeks since my last adjustment, and for whatever reason, the last time I was in I forgot to make an appointment, so my back started telling me last week it was time for an adjustment, which I got this morning, and as always, felt b... Read more

Sleep Study

Friday, June 15, 2012      4 comments

Last evening (Thursday) I went in for a sleep study. Had one done 5 years ago and was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Since then I had been using a CPAP until a few months after my Lapband surgery last September when I inadvertantly left the mask ... Read more

My two minutes of fame (hopefully 13 more minutes to go!)

Thursday, June 14, 2012      6 comments

I volunteered at a local health expo back in March which was sponsored by the medical group that owns and operates the two hospitals in my area (plus a number of medical offices). Specifically, I manned the weight loss surgery booth, given that... Read more

The Big "70" (pounds lost!)

Saturday, June 09, 2012      2 comments

At my last appointment with my Lapband PA (05/21), my weight loss on their scale has surpassed 70 pounds, but that was from my very first visit a year ago. Not quite there on home scale, which I started tracking the week I had my surgery last S... Read more

Day 250 since LB

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      4 comments

My calendar reminded me that it today is 250 days since I had my Lapband surgery. I put that reminder on my calendar for a few reasons. The obvious one is to share with others. Of course there is the part of wanting to be proud of where I am!... Read more

Front yard done...

Saturday, June 02, 2012      2 comments

As I just posted out on FB, I tip my hats to the men and women who do landsacaping for a living. TOUGH WORK! We had 4 areas in our front yard to put down new landscaping fabric and mulch down, and it took all of last weekend and today (Saturda... Read more
