I hate metric

Monday, January 04, 2010

A few months ago the kids fiddled with the scale and changed it to kilograms and I have no idea how to get it back. So essentially every time I weigh in, I've had to remember the weight and then use Google to convert it back in to Standard. It sucks because today I was freaking about because I thought I was under 150 kg and I get on and it's showing 155! I knew I wasn't exactly eating the greatest on my New Year's break but I didn't think I put on 16 pounds in that time.

So I've been pissed off most of the day because of it, and I hadn't had the time to do the conversion because I was running late and it's busy as hell at work (honestly, how hard is it to remember a password?). I finally get around to doing the conversion and find that I actually lost a few pounds this weekend (apparenly I was thinking of being under 350 pounds not 150 kilos)

So yeah, screw metric right in the ear.

Speaking of other Sparkpeople running fine for everyone? It seems slow as hell for me, but that may be just my POS computer here at work.

Other than that 2010's gotten out to an OK start. The Packers laid the smackdown on the Cards yesterday and I'm looking for them to repeat that in the playoffs. I got some gaming in, although not as much as I wanted because there were too many other things to do. Work still sucks, but that's to be expected. I'm almost at Wii Fit weight (330 Lbs.). Nothing else has gone wrong...yet :) and I'm hoping to keep it that way

    I hear alot of good about the Wii fit, I don't know if I'd use it or not.

    It's probably all the new New Year Dieters. I'm just glad to know it's not me. I wasn't even sure if this blog made it through because it died halfway through.

    Yes SP is running slow for me too.
