I was on the fence about hitting the gym yesterday and when I realized I'd forgot my flip-flops, that clinched it. I was up somewhat late last night and didn't scrape myself out of bed until ~11 today. Brunch: microwave burrito trio. ~3PM I had the last Guinness Extra Stout, which, at 176 calories and a smidgen of protein, is arguably a healthier choice than these HFCS "nectars". After a nap I had a powersaucebar and some smilk and showered. It wasn't easy propelling myself to the gym today either,... (...more)

Breakfast: 1 slice of pizza and a couple buffalo-dressed chicken nuggets (leaving 3 slices and 2 nuggets for dinner). Lunch: Sushi: 3pcs each sushi and sashimi (tuna, salmon and white fish), and spicy surime ("krab") salad over cucumber slices. That's gotta be a fair hunk of protein; my guesstimate is ~30-35g, based on a 5-oz can of tuna being 22g. Dinner: 3 slices to finish off the pizza and the last 2 chicken nuggets. Also, 12 oz of Guinness. I've got 1 more bottle, I'm gonna miss it when it's gone... (...more)

Dreamed I was renting a ground-level room on a street where a bunch of my paternal cousins also lived, and my cousin Don arrived home on his motorcycle with an enormous baggie, must have been 2-4 gallons, full of adorable mint green buds. (Which is ironic, because I think of all my male cousins on that side, Don may be the least likely to bring home any quantity of buds.) How much of that can I get for a C-note? I thought about doubling my order but alas, there's bills to pay. Funny how precise your math c... (...more)

Visited the AVDA thrift store on Rt 441 just south of Marina Blvd. I saw a Linksys WAP that I would have bought if it was priced, a couple nice glass cutting boards and a laptop bag ditto... in fact, an awful lot of stuff around the shop wasn't priced. But at least I know what kind of stuff they take: ANYTHING. Long-outdated MCSE study guides. Windows 98 install discs. An HP LaserJet 4 printer - production of these ended in the '90s. Clothes, of course, overwhelmingly women's and children's. Also, I think ... (...more)

After doing some interweb research last night, I'm rethinking my weight-lifting strategy. Or re-committing to a slower, safer approach to that aspect of my exercising, anyway, because it's not like I've never thought about this before. I got into a bad habit of straining to do 6-12 reps at the highest movable weight level. And that's fine within a certain phase of training. However, for my age and level of fitness enthusiasm, it's unproductive and even dangerous to do that session after session. I shoul... (...more)
