Nothing's happening...

Here I am, blogging again. Not too much going on.....I got paid the other day, got all my bills taken care of and bought myself a new digital camera, because when I busted my knee I also busted the camera. I still have some money in the bank and shouldn't need to spend all of it. I am kicking a cold's ass. I have almost all my Christmas shopping done - just need to get two or three people yet. Pretty soon I will start serious apartment shopping and inventorying my stuff to see what I need to get by March. I currently have plenty of clothes. Nothing else going on....I'm pretty boring. Did you read my last post?

Progress report

It has been a year since I decided that I needed to lose weight. I bring you now the current numbers:

I have gone from 220 pounds to 186 - lost 34 pounds so far. Maybe you think that's not a whole lot to lose in a year, but here's a breakdown for you...
34 lbs/year
2.83 lbs/month
0.65 lbs/week
0.09 lbs/day

Check that shit out.

So I have lost 34 pounds. I have gone down two pants sizes, from an 18 to a 14. I have totally given up soda and have cut down on candy. I drink a lot of water and eat pretty much what I want, just not as much. I also don't usually eat after 9 or 10 at night. I walk to work 2-3 days a week and do 90 sit-ups each night (every few days I add a couple sit-ups). I am sleeping better at night, have gotten sick exactly once this whole year, and I have a lot more energy to do stuff. I look better overall, not just thinner but my skin looks clearer and my hair is more awesome, thicker and softer and shinier. My nails break less often. My butt feels better when I sit on it. It is easier for me to get in and out of cars, even small scrape-your-ass-riding-in-it cars. I can bend more. I am in a better mood more often than I used to be. Next time I go to Six Flags, I will know for sure I can fit into any seat on any ride comfortably. My face looks better proportioned. I am not constantly half-constipated.

In short, I am shrinking and I feel AWESOME!!!!!!

Thanksgiving dinner review

Turkey not too dry this year. Gravy was good, mashed potatoes not bad for instant, corn casserole moister than I can get it, didn't eat rolls or stuffing or green bean casserole (nasty). Didn't overeat this year, go me. Leftovers soon.

It's back!

The Internet is back, and it is about 77% reliable!


On a totally related note, have you ever surfed the internet so long that your hand got all sweaty and cat hairs were sticking to it and you had to keep wiping your hand off on your shirt even though you knew you should just take a break but you had so much stuff to catch up on that you couldn't bear the thought of stopping even for five minutes til you got all caught up with your email and your blogs and your myspace and your facebook and your webcomics and updating stuff?

Not that anything like that happened to me.

No Internet =(

My internet at the house is no longer there. We are supposed to be getting cable internet next Sunday, but I will not have any way to get online until then, and maybe longer, depending on how setup goes. Isn't that sad? I just hope that we get the interweb up and running soon, and that it stays up most of the time.
