Yay! :/ [Sep. 1st, 2009|12:21 pm]
Pax
I've finally gotten to the point where if I don't wear a belt, my pants fall off.  Honestly... they last about 3 steps.  And these are new ones I bought at the beginning of July.

This is sort of a nice predicament to have.  But mildly annoying with the prospect of having to buy new clothes.  (The last couple of weeks have been unexpectedly expensive)

I've plateaued in my weight loss at about 240 lbs., but the muscle I have been gaining from skating and such has been displacing the fat very nicely.  I'm starting to get some nice definition in the legs and I'm feeling a difference in the muscle mass and strength in my core.  Now to start working more on the chest, arms and shoulders.

Come skate with me.  You'd be surprised how effective it is.

Need a cheap dentist [Aug. 10th, 2009|03:20 pm]

[Current Mood |in pain]

I think I really need to take care of this!

The headache the other day may have been brought on by some teeth problems.  I had 3 of 4 wisdom teeth taken out about 12 years ago.  They left one in place.  It is finally causing some problems.

It's been kicking off a little with this summers occasional sinus problems and I had hoped it would just be that.  But it's started to occur more often.

I don't have insurance and can't afford a lot.

Anyone got any suggestions or comments about dental clinics in the Seattle area for getting a tooth or two removed from my head?

Thanks.

Stupid bit of fat on my shoulders! [Aug. 9th, 2009|06:47 am]

Well, I had originally planned on going out for a bit tonight, but my head had other plans.

I left work a little early because I had a bit of a head-ache. A bit being that it was on the slightly big side and it was making me grumpy and not fun to deal with.

But rather than head straight home like I knew I should, I decided to run the errands that I had originally planned to do. Bad idea.

By the time I made it back to my sweeties, it was full blown. So it took a couple of Aleve and tried to lay down. Finding a comfortable position was about impossible.

It stuck with me long enough, that I eventually found myself in the bathroom being sick.

Not fun at all!

Throwing up usually causes head pressure and pain. But a head-ache that causes enough pain to make you hurl, thereby creating more of the said pressure and pain?

I can do without that ever again! Thank you very much!

Sarah Palin resigned as Governor of Alaska!

Who wants to wager that it's due to some scandal that hasn't been brought to light yet?

Tonight was a lot of fun! Thank you sweety!

Tomorrow night is the last night of Circus Contraption. They have had a good run for 11 years, and now it's coming to a close.

If you had ever wanted to see them, but haven't, now is your absolute last chance!

Go see them!

Cause I said so! That's why!

Do you really want to know?  Are you sure?

Really?

But anyways...

Anyone have a rubber rat they would like to donate to a good cause?  I can come get it this evening.  Just let me know.

K Thanx!

Tonights food expiriment... [May. 10th, 2009|05:20 am]

Pan seared tuna with a bit of fresh salsa.

The salsa was made with a small yellow tomato, a little red pepper, some shallots and a touch of lemon juice. Then sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper and let sit.

Then in a hot skillet with a touch of olive oil, I put in a little of the salsa to flavor the pan, and then did 60 seconds each side on a couple of 1 inch tuna steaks. Just enough to sear them on the outside but left them a bit pink inside.

It was good, but I think I'll season the tuna a little next time and maybe increase the time to cook by 30 seconds each side.

For the win!

The asparagus with yellow squash sauteed with a touch of brown sugar. I'm not a fan of squash, but that worked. :)

Last night, as a newer person, I was pulled aside with a couple of others to practice falling.

Yep. Falling on skates! On purpose!

Onto one knee. Onto two knee's. Onto one knee with a slide turn. Onto two knee's with a forearm catch. And finally baseball slides.

Baseball slides kind of suck. Unlike in actual baseball, you down leg should not end up under your butt, but rather behind your forward knee. Landing on a roller skate hurts.

Also, A man of my size makes a lot of racket when a controlled fall fails, and my ass lands hard. I swear the floor vibrated for a good 8 seconds! Although, that might have been my spine.

And in 2 uses, I have ruined my new skates! :/

Doing a controlled knee slide results in you pointing your toes, and the top and toe of the skate rubs along the floor.

At one point, I looked down and excplaimed "That's my toe nail!". I burned a hole through the toe of my left skate big enough that I could see my toe. Which means I had also ruined my new socks with the skeletons on them! And a set of laces!

Alright, that means I get to play with some leather. Gonna pull out the tools and fashion me some custom tooled toe covers.

And I hurt all over. But no photograph-able bruising yet. But give me time... it will happen.

:D
