Day 52: Ninety Percent Healed

When it is obvious that the goal cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goal; adjust the action steps to the goal.

Weight 275.8

I feel so much better.  The wife has it now and she seems to have it worse than I did.  It’s never easy.

Back on the diet and have started a new exercise, push-ups.  My shoulder has bothered me a bit because at work I didn’t have power steering in my UPS truck for the first 30 years I drove.  I know, it’s nuts.  That’s just the way it was.

Anyway, I’m going to start with modified push-ups on the stairs and do three sets every other day.  As I progress I will lower a step until I’m on the floor.  We will see how this goes.

It’s snowing heavily and the forecast is 30 F the first week of March.  I have this fantasy that March 1st it will be sunshine and fifty but I may have to wait a couple weeks.

Another skinsuit that I like.

This evening my buddy Alan said he like the Tron suit.  I told him I’d make it look good, the jumbotron.

Day 41: More About Clothing

I want to lose weight by eating nothing but moon pies, which have significantly less gravity than earthier foods such as fruits and vegetables.

A friend of mine read about my cycling clothing and sent me a picture.  He fears that this will be my look until (or unless) I lose the weight.

Day 40: Weather and Cycling Clothing

It is easier to change a man’s religion than to change his diet.
Margaret Mead

The sun has been out but it has been cold.  As it warms I realize that if I had cold weather gear I could be out on my bike.  The saying goes, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing.

I had planned to get winter gear around this time of  year but I am frugal and since I plan to lose over one third of my body weight I can’t justify it for a month extra or riding.  In the fall when the weight is gone and I have miles on my legs I will get the gear and extend the season.  I know what I want and will get it.

Day 38

Gluttony is an emotional escape, a sign something is eating us

I had a friend comment on the recent skinsuits I’ve been posting.  He asked me what I wore when I cycled.  Normally bib shorts and one of my jerseys.  Here is a pic from a ride last Fall.

Day 37:

I am not what happened to me.  I am what I choose to become.
Carl Jung

Weight 274.2

Had very little sleep the past few days due to my mom’s cancer.  I can feel the water weight gain.  This should pass soon.  No worries.


Found another skinsuit that might fit my comic sensibilities a little better.

Day 33:

We never repent of having eaten too little.

I spend too much time reading bicycle and banjo blogs.  Last night I found this fantastic skin suit for cycling.  Styled after Pee Wee Herman’s outfit in the greatest bicycle movie ever made, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.
