Marching On


So, what has been going on since I posted here back in January? Good question. Let’s see:

  • I lost 5 of the 15 pounds I gained over Christmas
  • I didn’t run much and the weather hampered my walking regimen

"Talk is cheap, but rum costs money."

Today is the last day of my vacation. I am very fortunate to work for an organization that allows for a goodsome break. Tomorrow, I’ll be back to toiling in a turbulent tempest of tumultuous turmoil. Not really. I like my job and the people I work with. There are some large scopes of project work in the hopper to keep me busy. Busy is good, because the winter is long.

I’m home sick today, cold sweats, eyes stinging, bones aching and head pounding. To be honest I feel like a reanimated corpse who’d rather be just left alone to rot. There’s a bug going around at work. I really hope it isn’t a zombie variety. O_O

Shack Wacky May

So, it’s a Saturday morning and I have the house to myself. It’s June 1st. That means it must be time for my monthly reflective post. It’s been a busy month with our youngest finishing high school and getting ready for university in the fall. He’s a bright kid with a fantastic future. It’ll be weird with just the two of us rattling around the house come September. Well, maybe.

Today was also my monthly weigh-in day. 235 pounds. Wah-waaahhh. That’s up again this month, but I won’t be yelling “MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY” (see what I did there?)

April 2013 - One Year Later

So this morning, I weigh 231 pounds. That’s up one pound from last month. March sucked in many ways, and strict adherence to my plan was among them. But, hey —

Life happens.
