1086 – Crackers

435 Cdo/219 lbs/96 Core

That’s all I had to eat today. Oh, and a slice of turkey a little while ago. I’m not feeling sick-sick, but not feeling well either. Hopefully clearing out my system will also clear out this bug I picked up. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

1084 – Moving the Needle

434 Cdo/219 lbs/96 Core

I know this is very slow progress, but it is progress. My gym bag is packed and in my car every day. I have a salad every day. I eat breakfast every day, pack a lunch every day. Right now, these are accomplishments; I’m working to make them part of my daily routine, like commuting to work. Then I can add new tasks to accomplish and turn into part of my daily routine.

Headache and tummy trouble. To bed I go.

1083 – Double Points

434 Cdo/220 lbs/96 Core

So can I get double points for going to the gym today? I really wanted to sleep, and it was really unpleasant. Shin splints, muscle aches. Oh my poor body! It felt like my first time on a treadmill or something. Gorp!

The news has broken. One of our main databases crashed, which explains why this week has been so painful. Doesn’t explain why we had to learn about it on the news.

Friday on the horizon.

1082 – Triple H Day

433 Cdo/220 lbs/96 Core

Too hot, humid and hellish today. That’s really all there is to it. I’m liking the half hour work out; the thicker socks made the treadmill workable; I’m just not willing to get all sweaty simply because the gym’s air conditioning sucks. Actually, that’s not the reason I didn’t go. When the heat gets oppressive like this I think it’s a bad idea to force my overweight, out of shape body to work too hard.

The cold front is pushing through as I write – lots of thunder and lightning – so tomorrow I’ll be at the gym. It’s just that simple.

1081 – Thick Socks

433 Cdo/220 lbs/96 Core

Wow I wanted to cheat today. I wanted to message that I had gone to the gym. From the parking lot. And then I could just drive home, having omitted the part about going in and actually sweated on purpose. But, I went in. Had no earbuds, so I treadmilled in treadmill silence. For a half hour. With thick socks.

Success.

1080 – Tenderfoot

432 Cdo/219 lbs/96 Core

Apparently two hours of treadmill was just enough to blister me up a bit. So, I gave my foot a rest and got groceries.

Lots of things I need to get on top of – dishes, laundry, cleaning, recycling. Time to stop listing. Tomorrow I’m taking out trash, emptying the dishwasher and cleaning the bathroom sink. After I get home from the gym.
