Countdown to 48 - Day 21
So three weeks in, I'm doing okay. Why do I say that, I ask myself. Simply because I started this thing 3 weeks ago and though I have not been "perfect," I haven't forgotten it, and I have settled for a modest, reachable goal: just eat meals ... Read more
Countdown to 48 - Day 20
As usual, I have such a better report to make on a weekday than I ever would on a weekend. I just flounder on the structure-less days of the weekend, and do so much better during the week, when everything from waking up to going to bed is predi... Read more
Countdown to 48 - Day 15
It occurs to me that it looks like I am counting down to my 48th birthday, I wish! I have an appointment with an orthopedist on March 8, and the day I made that appointment was 48 days before, so I decided that I would do the best I could to ma... Read more
Countdown to 48 - Day 8
Well, I am happy to declare yesterday a success eating wise. I stayed on track, and did have a little bit of a whoopee pie after dinner at my mom's house, it was a controlled portion and I stayed well within my calorie limit even with that. Ba... Read more
Countdown to 48 - Day 7
So I'm a week into my newfound plan to get myself in good shape for my appointment with the surgeon for my hip replacement, and I cannot say that I've covered myself in glory. I have these wonderful days, eating well and keeping everything unde... Read more
Countdown to 48 - Day 2
So I ate pretty well yesterday and began to devise a plan in my head to try to add some amount of fitness. I am not going to be able to hit any aerobic machines, but hoping I can come up with a bit of a program to work specific areas, and even ... Read more
Countdown to 48: Day 1
So I FINALLY got my appointment. Called and got an entirely different person today than the one I was able to speak with ever so briefly the other day, and on whose voicemail I have left too many messages that were never returned. Got my appoi... Read more
It's been a long time since I've blogged. Not really sure what I'm here to say, but I feel so restless, so sometimes you've just gotta grab the keyboard and see where it takes you.
I have been in a rut for what seems like forever. It trul... Read more
Day 3 - June 9, 2016
So without doing any of the traditional "diet" thing, I have managed to have three very good days in a row making decent food choices and staying away from poor ones. This, in my opinion, is the optimal way to get this weight loss thing done. ... Read more
Day 1: 6/7/16
Day 1 of what? Don't know. I've been on a bit of a journey lately, lost about 20 lbs doing weight watchers and very much liking the program, trying my best to get to the gym as often as possible. I feel like I'm making progress, and truth be ... Read more
It's Been Such a Long Time......
Anyone as old as I am might recognize those words from the song by the rock band Boston from back in the 80's. Great song, and not really on point with what's on my mind, but it HAS been a long time since I've bared my soul here on SP. Doesn't... Read more
Observations - Day 2
So on the second day that I managed to get on my exercise bike for at least 10 minutes, I observed something quite interesting... I have been less and less nimble in my movement, even doing such things as walking down stairs or standing up afte... Read more
TFTB - Dear Lord, please never let that be me...
I was listening to a popular radio show this morning, Matty in the Morning on Kiss 108 for any of my New England brethren, and they were talking about how doctors sometimes have codes for communicating that are not very complementary towards the... Read more
I'm going to do it my way...
I was in my thinking place this morning (call that the shower, where so much of my best thinking happens that I sometimes wonder why I don't live in that little stall) and came upon this issue, and have been arguing with me ever since:
The ... Read more

A Three Week Check In
So three weeks ago today, I went to the doctor for my annual physical, and I was, quite frankly, a mess. We spent a lot of time talking about the past, dark, 18 months of my life, and I left with the marching orders of doing some thinking about... Read more
