Life is full of them. Some good, some bad, some don't make much of a difference. Today's change is that I'm not going to do this blog daily. I have enough stress that I feel I don't need to stress about making sure I get my post done every single day. So I am going … Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!
I swear sometimes that the world is out to get me. First an abdominal strain that lasted for six months. Then back pain that is reoccurring. Then the foot, the arm, the back some more, the roof, the food, yada yada yada! Today it just so happens to be my ankle that is deciding to … Continue reading Day 25 – If It’s Not One Thing…
Okay, not really. It's just a regular old Sunday. Grocery shopping, Game of Thrones and relaxing. I didn't do anything particularly exciting. Probably the most exciting thing of the day was finding a new workout. I know, I know. I just started doing a workout not too long ago. But you know what they say, … Continue reading Day 24 – Sunday Funday
"Scrum" is a word I have used a lot more often over the past few years than I thought I ever would. The main reason is because my team at work started using a ticketing system along with scrum to plan and execute our jobs at work. Tonight, scrum was the word of the day … Continue reading Day 23 – Scrum!!
Forgot to post this last night! We all find various ways to torture ourselves. Some of us eat when we know we shouldn't. Some of us exercise even if we are in pain. Some of us listen to music we hate because everyone else in the car likes it (hey, I think I do all … Continue reading Day 22 – Torture!
It obviously isn't normal. The bruising on my arm from where the plasma donation center messed up (I am using my nice words) has spread down my arm. Other than some pain at the actual place on the vein where he messed up, it doesn't really hurt, but man... talk about looking like nothing but … Continue reading Day 21 – Is This Normal?
Ok, gonna be real here. 16 pounds. Doesn't sound like a lot, really. Or does it? I guess it depends on what we are talking about. A 16 pounds steak? That's a lot. A 16 pounds dumbbell, maybe not so much. But when it comes to losing weight, I guess in general there are a … Continue reading Day 20 – 16 Pounds
It's been an unlucky week or so for my body. I dropped a 70 pound weight on my foot that still hurts, my left arm looks and feels awful from the plasma incident, my right arm looks bad but doesn't hurt much and I decided to kick the bed last night as I headed to … Continue reading Day 19 – I’m Just One Big Bruise
I am a competitive asshole. I am most definitely not ashamed to say that with my head held high. I have never been one to let anyone win. If you beat me, you beat me at my best. It doesn't matter if it is my kids, my wife, my parents, my friends... I will give … Continue reading Day 18 – Steppin’ Up!
So I am one who is really, really good at excuses. And I have a few. I completely forgot that I promised my wife I'd take her to one of our favorite places for dinner tonight since they are closed on Sunday's... so I will not be starting my fast. On top of that, I'll … Continue reading NOT SO FAST!
