Sunny and 75F / 18C, heading to the upper 80's later today with a bit more humidity.

The fitness center at my YMCA is closed for the next few days as the replace much of the cardio equipment, so my lunchtime game plan will be to head to my local park where they have some outdoor equipment I can work on + I'll do a power walk.

Steady but not crazy work day ahead. Need to make a serious dent in my transition activities from my old job.

Happy hump day gents!

"cooler" today. Only in the mid 90s! Another day of heat advisory. Today is the first day of my lab class so a lot to prepare along with my regular class. Fortunately, I've got a good TA to help.

Sunny and 73F / 23C, heading to the mid 80's here on the Delmarva with a little more humidity. I'll be running at lunchtime so I'll have a good idea just how much more humidity is in the air.

Fairly quiet work day ahead...a few meetings, plus working down my list of transition to do's from my soon to be old job. Goal is have them all done by 9/15. This evening the 2014/15 bowling season starts. My goal is simple for this year -- 200 average or high. Finished with a 196 last season so certainly doable.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Another clear and sunny day here on the Delmarva -- 75F / 24C, heading to the low 80's.

Busy day already in progress. Busy week, too, but off all day Friday so a 4 day work week is something I can handle.

Have a good work week gents!

Yet another hot day near 100. First day of classes so it should be a fun day. Now that the campus fitness center and locker room are open again today will be my first official weekly weigh in since May.

Should hit around 80 today. Enjoyed the game last night. Unfortunately Wes Welker took a shot to the head, resulting in another concussion. I wonder whether he will return from this one!

Sunny day here on the Delmarva! 74F / 23C, heading just to the upper 70's and relatively low humidity. It was cloudy most of yesterday and we did get a passing shower, of course while I was out doing yard work!

Speaking of yard work, did get it all done yesterday, so today will be a relaxing day. Plan to head to Lowe's shortly for a few items, then out for a long run. Also got the toilet in the bathroom by my office all fixed yesterday, though it was a lot more work than I expected. But it is done and works like a champ!

Have a great Sunday gents!

Another hot and humid day ahead. Heading for a high around 100. Went to the men's soccer game yesterday and the temps were around 100. Fortunately, the seats were in the shade so it wasn't bad at all for the crowd but it must have been miserable for the players. At least the team won!

Partly sunny and 72F / 22C heading to the upper 70's with a chance of showers.

Had fun getting out with some buddies for golf yesterday, sadly my first time all year! Shot a 108, which I have no problems with, and actually had some decent drives and work in the fairways. My putter let me down, though, with WAY too many 3 putts. Next time out on the course is the mid September outing in Maryland, always a good time and a great excuse for a day off from work!

Besides running and mowing, plan to fix the toilet in the bathroom next to my office -- the whole float system needs to be replaced. I'm sure there are a few other things I'll be doing today. DW has the inside chores today!

Have a great Saturday gents!

Hot, hot, hot. Heading for a high around 100 again. The men's soccer team has a pre-season game today. Their field is not in playing shape because of the weather this summer so they are playing at the local high school that has a turf field. It's going to be even hotter on the field for them.

Fair skies and 74F / 23C, heading to the low 80's with a chance of thunderstorms later on.

Early start at work, as I am taking this afternoon off to go golfing with some buddies. First time this year! Should be comical! We are playing at a course that I've wanted to play at for some time, so at least that part will be good.

Got my replacement Fitbit in the mail yesterday. Hopefully this one will last longer than its predecessor (7 months). Thankfully it was under warranty.

TGIF gents!

Hope you had a great time in Tucson Dennis. DW and I will be there in a few weeks, but only for a few days.

Overcast and 74F / 23C here on the Delmarva, dew point at 70F, heading to the mid 80's with a chance of thunderstorms, especially this evening.

Steady but not crazy busy day today. There is a 5K race this evening, but with the forecast for thunderstorms plus not wanting to re injure my right knee, I'm not going to race. There is a an early Saturday race, but for the same injury reason plus the race is at 7:00AM, i'll beg off of that one as well. Will get out for a fun run today and a long run on Saturday.

Have a great Thursday gents!

It's going to be a hot one today with temps near 100. Late yesterday it actually cooled down a bit with some clouds moving in and I was able to get the lawn mowed in reasonable temps. Today will be a loooooong faculty retreat which is always exciting. So exciting, in fact, that I didn't change my dental appointment for this morning - in other words, I'd rather get my teach drilled than sit through a faculty retreat. I'll get another break when I meet with a group of first year students for lunch.

Mid 80's today.
Pat I usually check my blood sugar levels on the weekend also. Just seem to have more time to do so. Congrats on your low numbers. I too have been eating smarter so my scores don't bounce around so much. Keep up the good work.

Sunny and 69F / 21C, dew point also at 69F, heading to the low 80's. Chance of showers late tonight.

Wednesday mornings I do my weekly weigh in and do a blood sugar check. Weigh in went fine -- back under 180 -- but I was really happy about my blood sugar reading -- 110!! One of the best AM readings in a LONG time! #'s have been trending downward lately, so maybe my body is finally figuring out how to manage blood sugar better again. This is a BIG deal!

Busy work day ahead. Not sure what the game plan is for this evening yet...

HUMP DAY gents! ENJOY!

A hot and humid day ahead. I will get in a run this morning before it gets too hot. Then I meet with a group of incoming first year students for lunch today.

Another day of humidity accompanied by heat in the 90's.

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

Stay started out very pleasant, then, Whammo!, summer heat in the 90's here in the SW-MO Ozarks.

Mostly sunny and 72F / 22C, heading to the low 80's. Dew point at 70F, so a bit humid out there, but the midwest heat does not appear it is coming here.

Got some mostly good news from the sports Dr I saw yesterday. Knee is structurally OK, but the pain I was feeling a month ago is due to arthritis, and as we all know, that does not go away. But...I have found that running a little slower has made a difference. I barely feel any pain, so I think the lesson learned is train easy and save up the hard running for races. May put that to the test later this week -- there is a 5K race Thursday evening or Saturday morning, so need to decide which one I want to do.

Steady but not crazy work day ahead, organizational meeting for the 2014/15 bowling season is tonight. May get in some practice afterwards as I am planning to get in some golf on Friday afternoon.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

August heat is here. Upper 90s for the next week or so and very humid. Had a great time at the golf tournament yesterday. Our team played well but we couldn't make putts. Overdid it a bit on the dinner but not too bad (too many desserts). The ribs were awesome.

Mostly cloudy and 83 degrees here in St. Louis. Worked all weekend (at work and at home- honeydo's) and sleep derived. Hoping to catch up on sleep tonight!

Fair skies and 71F / 22C, heading to the low 80's. Chance of showers tonight.

Surprisingly unsore (is that a word?) after an enjoyable 10K run yesterday. I have a Dr appointment at 14:00 with a sports Dr, but the subject the appointment, my right knee, is really not feeling all that bad. I thought for sure the run would set it off, but I ran at a fairly slow pace (which I have been doing as of late) and I think that has allowed some quality healing. But it'll be worth time to see the Dr. and establish a relationship.

Steady both not crazy work day ahead. This evening DW and I will likely be making a pet store run, as we are getting low on doggie treats and canned dog food.

Have a good work week gents!

Starting off with heavy fog and temps in the upper 60s. Heading for a high near 90 with partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of some rain this afternoon. I have a charity scramble golf tournament today so it should be a fun day and I sure hope the chance of rain doesn't come through. I'll try and go to the convocation this morning to help welcome the new students and then head to the course.

Busy but productive day...temp hit a high of 83F, but dew point was up in the mid 60's so felt much warmer, especially when I was running this afternoon. DW and I slept in -- if you call 08:00 sleeping in (which we do!). Breakfast out, trip to Sam's Club, visit to a local winery (although I had not wine), a nice easy 6.2 / 10K run, then dinner at home watching LLWS.

Sleep well gents!
