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[...]

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[...]

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.

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.

Slight drizzle this a.m. but decided to go out with Angel anyway. Then the bottom fell out so we decided to come home and just loop the neighborhood. She is not one that likes to be dried off.

Carrot Smoothing this a.m.

2 cups of carrots
1 cup of pineapple chunks
1/2 apple (organic)
Almond/Coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon of Tumeric
2 tablespoons of MCT oil
1/2 teaspoon of Ceylon cinnamon

Snacks today, Macadamia and cashews.

Weight before my failed run, 195. Goal is 193.

Still coughing up a lung but I seem to have finally gotten rid of this pesky fever. 
My '97 Accord is acting up again - the clutch this time.  Probably needs a new master cylinder as its leaking fluid all over the place and right now the clutch won't work at all.  I love that car but this monthly shake down is starting to get to me.

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.

Finished "The Bacheliar" last night. Painful. I have to get my thoughts together, but I should have something up after lunch. Nominations for council at church are a cluster. We need 3 people. We had 3 people. One bailed. We replaced him. That one bailed. We have three days to find one more. Four phone calls and four "no can do's". That is on top of the 12+ that said no during the initial push. Yep, we are unable to find 3 freaking people willing to help run the church in a community of retired people. That pretty much sums up what I see happening to Christianity in the USA. Or at least common denominations of Protestant Christianity. Or maybe specifically to Lutheranism. Whatever it is, it is hard to watch. You want to make America Great again, you may have to fight apathy first. 
Good run this morning, a half mile more. Tomorrow is looking like a woods run, which should test the HQ due to duration and bounciness. I am toying with the idea of a video review. I'll have to see [...]
