Been a few weeks since I've thrown a weight on here. I've actually seesawed a bit the last three weeks. The first of those weeks, starting a new job, ran into a bit of a buzzsaw that made things very stressful right off the bat, and the weight dipped as low as 208-something for a moment. But then things evened out and I saw a 214 again. Not really sure that stress is an adequate reason for that swing, but it happened. Seems like the number has leveled off, just a bit lower than my previous reported weigh in, by a pound.
Contrary to expectations, and really, hopes, I get to do an hour commute (if traffic and weather behave!) rather than a 30-35 minute run that I was hoping for. That's going to get annoying quickly. And I'm going to have to get used to going to bed earlier. I've been slightly under the weather today, so I took a nap midday, and now, at 10:30, I'm wide awake, when I was hoping to be asleep by 10, to make the 6 AM alarm easier to answer. Hoping to be out completely by midnight, so as to score at least a full 6 hours, plus a snooze button or two's worth of zzz's. We shall see. Thinking maybe of taking a shower, to avoid needing to do that in the morning, but sometimes that relaxes me, something it completely wakes me up. SO maybe I'll just turn out the light and hope I'm not clock watching past midnight anyway.
Mostly sad day of watching sports. Woke up in time to see the football team I like (Tottenham Hotspur) beat the league leading Manchester City squad 2-0. But then I passed out, rather than watching the other football team I like, the Detroit Lions. Which turned out to be a good decision, because they decided that as the calendar read October, they were ready to turn into pumpkins, and lost to a woeful Chicago Bears team, 17-14. And then, sadly, the Detroit Tigers season came to an end with an also woeful 1-0 loss, with the team falling just short of the playoffs. Also sad, the wonderful Vin Scully broadcasting the last game of his amazing 67 year career. I might have shed a tear when he signed off, saying, "I have said enough for a lifetime, and for the last time, I wish you a very pleasant good afternoon."
Ok, it's 10:45 now. Turning off the computer and the lights. Wish me luck in responding well to the alarm at 6 AM. I have three separate ones teed up on my phone, and an alarm clock that's across the room. I think I can manage to annoy myself in to actually getting up!
