Sadness in Boston
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 13 comments
I had just gotten off of a conference call yesterday afternoon when my wife broke the sad news to me about the bombing at the Boston Marathon. While not the same size and scope as the 9/11 tragedy, a lot of those same feelings from nearly 12 ye... Read more
OOPS! Forgot the hat...

I was so excited to get outside yesterday and do yard work (it was sunny and in the 60's -- PREFECT yard work kind of day!), that I forgot to wear a hat! A year ago, there was hair on my head (granted, not too much!), now there is none! And th... Read more

So with now being able to consistently run 5K distance in under 30 minutes, one of my goal for 2013 is to compete in a 10K race. But as I did with the 5K distance, I wanted to set a time goal before I started looking for a race. My goal = under... Read more
Amazing what a good night's rest will do...

As I crawled out of bed this morning, I knew I wanted to face the scale and see if somehow I had dreamed that my weight has gotten into the BMI "normal" range. On top of that, my DW and I went out for a celebratory dinner last night at one of t... Read more

I did it! Took 513 days to get there, but I am finally in the "normal" range on the BMI scale! This was my goal when I had my WLS back in September of 2011 -- to get to "normal"! May not be normal in other ways, but at least I am on this ... Read more
Eventful last 24 hours...

No shortage of interesting events over the past 24 hours: - Of course all the "normal" stuff that fills up a Tuesday and Wednesday AM -- meals, workout (a great run yesterday at the Y -- 28:18 5K / 37:03 4 mile times), and bowling last even... Read more

Early rise this morning -- 0430!! My DW is taking my FIL to Baltimore for a medical test at UMMC. A test called an Enterscopy. Long day for them, but since I was up, took advantage and got through the newspapers early, then mapped out our ho... Read more
The love/hate relationship with the scale!

I'm sure I am not the only one who feels this way, but there are times that either I wish I could "choke" our bathroom scale (assuming it has a throat to choke!), and give it a BIG hug! I had such a situation in the past few days.... Thurs... Read more

Some random events going on in my life: - Hit a low water mark on the scale this morning -- 180.2! Exactly 86 pounds lost now, and just a scant 1.2 pounds more to go to hit my target and officially "be normal" on the BMI scale! Can't spea... Read more
A small step back....

Went to see my PCP today, and I was hoping that my hemoglobin A1C blood test was finally going to be in the "normal" range (5.6% or less). My last test in October was at 5.7, so I was THAT close! Unfortunately, not only had it not gone d... Read more
