I won’t go into a lot of detail right now but I think I’ll be burning a few extra calories in the coming weeks.
November 1st is coming up and that means NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. I’m returning to my old friend mystery this year and working on a “warm-up” story. The goal is 50,000 words in thirty days, which will go along way towards working out some of the frustrations I’ve been having at work. I’mContinue reading “Calorie and Word counts”
I just listened to Steve Hofstetter’s latest entry in his new podcast Failing Forward. It featured the first guest that was not a comedian or a performer but he is someone who is very successful in his field and naturally, had some down points in his life. His name is Dr. Mark Goulston and youContinue reading “What Made You Smile Today?”
So I’m not sure what’s happening. It seemed like I was losing a record amount of weight in a short amount of time. Then I used the weighing feature on the kiosk scale at work and it said I was still at 230. Yesterday was a rough day anyway so I wasn’t really in theContinue reading “Sliding Scale”

I have a video in the oven that will be just under an hour long. But I didn’t want to wait for that to convert to share the good news. I’ve lost ten pounds after five weeks of dieting and exercising. Today is a cheat day of sorts. I’m not eating junk food. I’m havingContinue reading “225 Pounds”
Memory can be fuzzy. You think you remember something a certain way but really all you’re remembering is your interpretation of reality. It’s why, “I don’t remember” is not a valid defense in court.
