Going all Jersey Shore and getting my GTL on today

Saturday, March 25, 2017

You know, Gym, Taxes, Laundry? Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm a slacker on that middle item. But hey, it's still March, and I'm starting, and that's actually improvement. I know the old line about how waiting on it is basically like giving the government a free loan, but really, with interest rates so low, what would my refund be worth to me in a bank, about 12 cents of extra interest?

Anyway. 224.6 today, which is lower than the 228 from last week, but more than the 222 I scored last Saturday night. Of course, that was after having been sick and sleeping 16+ hours the prior three days, so that might not have been the most accurate measure. Trend is still wrongish, but I'm glad the weight didn't just shoot back up to the high score immediately.

Facebook was a bit mean in showing me a pic from 4 years ago, when I was at my recent best, around`175 lb, and I happened to be wearing the same hoodie, filling it out a lot more at 50 pounds heavier. Made me a tad sad, and a tad angry at myself. Might have to tap into that vein to get back, have any chance at reclaiming that.

Also, while I'm talking to myself, mentioning the elbow problem that's kept me, in conspiry with laziness, and tiredness from commuting, but mostly laziness. Realized a couple of weeks ago that I couldn't straighten out my right arm, kind of the huh, maybe there's a real issue here moment after 3-4 months of elbow issues. Supposed to be getting that checked out Wednesday. Really hoping work doesn't schedule something for me over that doctor's appointment.
