Hi. So I've been testing out different allergy medicines this year. I started with generic-Claritin, which dried me out but didn't stop the itching or sneezing. Then I tried generic-Allegra, which mostly dried me up and took care of most of... Read more
My exercise deck, and other things.
Friday, March 30, 2012      0 comments

Hi. I used my exercise deck today. I did about ten cards, I think. I did enough of each card to feel the burn a bit, which varies widely in duration/reps/sets. I don't want to get too sore, so I didn't push it real hard. But the cards work ... Read more

Hi. I got interested again in fitdeck and other methods of using cards to make a workout. But I just can't stomach paying $50 for all the decks I'm interested in, I'm just too cheap. So I made my own. I have made 30 cards so far using ... Read more

I did week 1 day 1 of Couch-to-5K. Also did a couple minutes on my kids' hula hoop. I want a hoop of my own, sized for me, I think, with nice grippy tape to help me keep the hoop going. My feet are complaining after the walk/run.... Read more

Not exactly the first week of January
Thursday, February 18, 2010      0 comments

Hi. So I said in an earlier blog I'd be back around the first week of January. Well, no. Big project at work went live on Jan 11, so the last week before and the month since have sucked mightily. My old nemesis poor sleep returned with... Read more

Hi. I just *had* to post about this, it's so cool! So I live a completely sedentary livestyle--or I did before October, anyway. Now I do BL for wii three or four times a week. Not exactly on par with folks who lift or run or whatever f... Read more

Hi. I've been taking an almost vacation from SP. I come in and read a little, but haven't written a blog or logged my food in days. I've been pretty good, even without the logging. I've logged my food so many times over the years I'm p... Read more
Skinny Jeans
Saturday, November 21, 2009      2 comments

Hi. On a whim yesterday I grabbed the skinny jeans from the bottom shelf and put them on. I had put them down there because they were too uncomfortable to wear. I have a sit down job, and they were cutting me in half. They're the same size ... Read more

Hi. Did my BL challenge today. My second time doing the Light Cycle. I was first right up til the end and then came in second. Ah well. It was football runs and tire runs, which are a little tough for me to sustain. But I did pretty good. ... Read more

Hi. Haven't posted in a few days. There's nothing really going on to keep me away, just haven't felt like saying much lately. These days, I find I am almost constantly stoked about my progress. Today the scale went down another pound, ... Read more
10 lbs

Hi. So today I hit the 10 lbs lost mark, since a few weeks before I started SP. It's been 6 lbs since I started SP. I'm happy. Sucks, though, because I have a cold right now. I have a feeling that all the nose-blowing is changing ... Read more
Take *that*, Saltmonster!
Saturday, November 07, 2009      0 comments

Hi. So yesterday I didn't eat as much salt as the previous four days, even with a stop at Chick Fil A last night. And, as expected, the water left in a hurry. This morning I was *two* pounds lighter than yesterday, achieving a new low of 16... Read more
Unintended consequences
Friday, November 06, 2009      0 comments

Hi. So here's a tip. If you take medicines of any kind on a daily basis, find out from the doc which ones have diuretic effects (even if that's not what they're for) and then DON'T TAKE THOSE AT BEDTIME!!! Ugh. I've had crappy sleep no... Read more
