Mostly about my usually improving health via exercise and diet. Other times, being sick.

Weight loss has finally made some progress

I know I rambled on about this two days ago with my AARP dig but it’s such a thrill to be under 250 pounds again. I think Obama was president the last time I was this light and probably during … Continue reading

My first root canal

Contrary to this hilarious scene starring Steve Martin in one of his best supporting roles, the operation to kill the nerve under my lost filling went with little difficulty. Now I have to wait until the original dentist I was … Continue reading

This morning I have hit 32% of the Earth’s circumference. Never thought I would get there given what a bust September had been but I started getting back into my groove last week, slowly with 10 miles, then 11 the … Continue reading

First “perfect” month in half a year!

A job well done for the month of July! Closed all three rings 31 days in a row. I wish I could say I succeeded in them being achieved by cycling 17 miles every time. Today was the exception because … Continue reading

Two great goals today!

As you can see from the virtual little prize above, I have closed all three of my rings 26 times in a row but the Challenge was to just pull it off within 31 days so I guess you’d get … Continue reading

Caloric goal achieved at gym!

It would be there sooner for a couple reasons that we all know, Covid-19 and not going to Planet Fatness. When I logged into the bike today, I was relieved that it set the next calorie goal to 200,000 since … Continue reading

Beijing achieved!

Rather bummed that Beijing doesn’t have a city flag like all the other places I’m arriving at but I’ll take this little victory on my virtual trip around the world. I owe the more recent destination’s success to stepping up … Continue reading

Let’s see. If we divided those six weeks by the number of days it took to hit this landmark over the last 12 years…I’m averaging around 14 1/2 minutes of exercise a day when ideally it should be 30. Yeah, … Continue reading

Double Move hits 500!

Another good doctor visit and discussion about CBD

My sanity wasn’t exactly in question lately although I have been feeling angrier and more irritable. I blame it on how the GOP and Dems continue to be fucking useless as the world burns. Either way, we had a productive … Continue reading

Allergies are a nightmare this Summer

This morning I woke up and my head felt as if the insides were scrambled by the hand mixer I bought earlier this year. It would be nice to use that appliance again but I think one of the floor … Continue reading
