Today might be an off day - fighting a little bit of a headache - but we also have a meeting over lunch and Matthew has hockey tonight. Might try to go after hockey or just wait and go to spin tomorrow.

Scale dropped a bit more. Now to keep it going - this type of drop is usually where I throw everything to the wind and end up back where I started. My "tight" pants are lose and noticing that more than the change on the scale. Tempted to get another one but that might be my "reward" at the end of next month.

Doing a commit 30 - preface is everyone can do something for 30 days. So this month it was working out (more than just the walking that my apple watch picks up) at least 5 out of 7 days a week. If I do that my reward this month is a new thing for working out. Then next month it will be something else I concentrate on. Something that is simple but it really helps in getting moving and staying moving.

Still a little stuffy, but I'm mostly over that crappy cold I've had for the past week. I was going to start training (officially) this week, but decided to push it off until next week so I wouldn't start training while sick.

Four pounds down in a week of eating clean, all water I'm sure. I feel much better - knees stopped being achy and I have energy in the afternoons. Ordered a skinny vanilla latte as a cheat at Starbucks yesterday, and it was so sweet I couldn't drink it. I know that my tastes change when I'm good about cutting sugar, but honestly was a bit surprised to be there only a week in. Anyhow, feeling good, sticking with it. 
Talked to the owner of the new gallery in Whitefish yesterday. It's gonna be $$ to get work up there, but I'm pretty excited about it. I really enjoyed talking with him and it sounds like it will be a good fit for my work. Plus, now I have an excuse to get up there more often. He's a bike guy, and was telling me I need to come up in May and ride Going to the Sun road before they open it to cars. See?? My kind of people :) I'm feeling good about getting my work out of state, and specifically that I've picked up a couple of galleries in Montana. It's an art market th[...]

9:22am: DAMN work has been busy lately. Mostly not bad, though -- being productive, getting things done, and only one guy who keeps poking, poking, poking ... I might have to make it impossible for him to call or email me soon (the upside to being in I.T.).
Nothing much planned for the weekend except a long list of to-do's. Woohoo!
Sore from the strength training this week. Mostly in a good way, but kind of in a "groan like an old lady every time I have to move" way.

Body aches and pains from fall settling down...seems pretty safe to conclude I don't have any minor fractures anywhere. Stiff neck...sore glute...bit of a strain in lower back. Still getting over upper respiratory crud. Raining and going to be raining off and on into next week. Basically shutting down until I feel up to a gym workout.

Day#001--

11:11a--Obviously the calculated risk was a poor one. I have consumed caffeine every day since Tuesday, including two energy drinks today. Honestly, the self-loathing I feel is too intense to describe. The suspicion that my caffeine consumption is causing pregnancy problems and interfering with my ability to have children is driving me crazy. I continue to consume the caffeine because my job requires me to be on top of things and I am incredibly busy at work. If I take a few days off, I may lose my job and ruin my life.

Tuesday night a friend who does bodybuilding suggested I try to do a bodybuilding show. I laughed at him because I am 28.3% bodyfat and 35 years old. His reasoning was that I am obviously built (and he is right) and slashing down to single digit bodyfat would still put me in the 200lb range. He says for a natural guy I could be a beast.

A long time ago I fancied the idea of being a bodybuilder. I saw the professionals (who at the time I did not beli[...]
