  • It's been a weird day. I just got back form solo tryouts for this years Christmas cantata. It's always fun to tryout and hear others too. #
  • As the house starts to come into focus, I'm beginning to start thinking about getting everything setup. I'm going to need temp furniture… #
  • A trip to Boston may be in my future this afternoon. Not ideal but one does what one must! #
  • No trip to Boston today, so far, but I have a conference call at 4. Feeling nervous about it, Not sure what will be involved. #
  • This afternoon is going to require a third cup of tea. Time to break out the Jasmine! #
  • The more I hear about the problem, the more it sounds like a pretty nasty phishing scam. Unreal! #
  • Well, that went well enough. I learned a lot more about what happened. Things I wish they had already told me! Now, we wait… #

One Guy’s Approach to Being More Healthy

November 17th, 2009

I’m not a doctor. I’m not an expert. I know only what I’ve been doing and how it’s been going for me. I’m not telling anyone what to do or making a recommendation. This is what I’ve been doing for the past year and it’s been working well for me so I thought I’d document the process a bit.

All that being said, let me explain a bit of background. I’m a pretty average American guy with more then a few extra pounds hanging around that I would like to get rid of. Generally speaking, I’ve never been one to eat a lot of fast food but I do have a sweet tooth. I enjoy spending time out side but don’t often find myself with the extra energy to really get out and exercise with any regularity. When the weather is good I play tennis with friends and do some biking but when the weather isn’t good, I’m much more likely to stay in.

  • My home loan has been approved, with some conditions based on missed paperwork. With that sent along, we may have a final answer very soon! #
  • The guy in the next office is back at work, and I'm glad his kids are doing well now.. but I did not miss his constant rambling. #
  • Me: "Who installed this program?" User: "I don't know." Me: "Does anyone else use this computer?" User: "No." #
  • Just got the water test from the property I'm trying to buy. It's not good, unless you like coliform… #
  • It's been another housing roller coaster today… very much looking forward to this being over with! #
  • It's not been a good day but it is nearly over. My stress is converting to stomach acid and nausea though, so I have that going for me 🙂 #
  • Time to head down to Boston for a few hours at least. I've missed the morning rush hour (hopefully) though so that makes it much nicer. #

  • I knew it would happen. I left my tea pot and cup at home today. I don't even think I have another cup here to drink water with… #
  • The problem with American sitcoms, is they don't take the absurdity far enough. It needs to be be real, or fake…not a weird middle ground! #
  • Going to be early again. Even considering the time change, I've been going to be early. My lack of sleep is catching up with me. #
  • I remembered my tea stuff this morning.. time to steep! It feels like a Xue Ya Ballad kind of day #
  • Not my greatest lunch ever.. I burned the crap out of the bread in the toaster. I'll try again tomorrow…. #
  • I'm supposed to be closing on a house one week from tomorrow… and I still don't know if it's going to go through or not. #
  • Should I be calling for utilities? Should I wait? Aarrg. #

  • I take back the 'feeling better' comment. I'm not. I am totally shattered. I need to rest desperately and I shall try again tonight. #
  • I'm somehow glad to be at the office today and I'm looking forward to the days first cup of tea. In the mood for some Pekoe today. #
  • Just got word that the appraiser has been contacted go look at the house. It's not a lot of movement.. but it's some! #
  • I'm sitting in front of the TV with my laptop.. wishing I could think of somewhere to surf to. Time to sign off it seems 🙂 #
  • It's 11pm and my work at the day job is complete. Now I need to relax and get to sleep… 2 hours ago 🙂 #
  • More then 50% done the days backups and no failures (yet). Massive improvement over the last few days for sure! #
  • I'm starting to fade a bit and I don't feel great overall. Time to head for home and start getting ready for Praise Team rehearsal. #
