A Good Start

Posted by on Aug 8, 2014 in Terry's Blog | 0 comments

If you really want to start your day right, you gotta get on it before you go to bed.

Today I started the day making coffee and breakfast shakes in a kitchen full of dirty dishes.

Yesterday I started the day in a clean kitchen with a pre-programmed pot of coffee brewing, and my breakfast shake waiting for me in the fridge. When it was time to get dressed, my clothes were ready for me. I had lots of time to blog, and drink coffee.

Today I have some slack because I still don’t snooze, and I am taking the car to work, but I lost a lot of time prepping coffee and shakes, and now I have to go digging for a wardrobe. No time for a leisurely Joe. It’s post the blog and go.

3 wins for the day.

  1. I didn’t snooze: when my alarm goes off, I get up and get at it; mind you I woke up before my alarm, and reset it for 15 minutes later, but I didn’t hit the snooze button. This is one good habit I have managed to retain all summer, despite my diet and exercise plan falling by the wayside.
  2. I am blogging in the morning for the 3rd time in a row – much better than having to write something before I can go to bed.
  3. I did my 5 minute cold shower. I considered skipping it, but I feel so good when I actually do it. It also makes me more comfortable throughout the day, as my metabolism is much better at regulating my internal temperature.

Gotta go – have a swell day, kids.

Today I used green beans in my shake instead of the usual mixture of pinto / kidney / black beans that I usually use. It was really nasty. Big win for the day? .. 2nd consecutive morning blog. Not much else in the above and beyond category. 6 more sleeps until my Holiday.

Back at’er

Posted by on Aug 6, 2014 in Terry's Blog | 0 comments

I just had a wonderful 5-day weekend. We celebrated 10 years of blissful marriage. I got to read an entire novel in one day, mostly in a deck chair in our yard. I got to sleep in until I was too bored to stay in bed. It was awesome. I caught my breath, and brought my blood pressure down several notches.

Now it is back to work. Today is the first day of my new position at a higher pay grade. I only have to put in 6 days before I fly away to Saskatchewan for 2 weeks, so I think I can get through it without getting too stressed.

I weighed in at 263.4 lbs this morning. I was down to 240 less than 6 weeks ago. How long will it take to get those 20+ pounds back?

Oh! One more thing. I want to focus on becoming a checklist guy. I have talked about it from day one of this podcast, along with several goals that I have already failed to meet. Fuck-up; Get-up;Keep moving.


The saga continues – let’s see if I can get back to the daily blog thing too. This is a morning blog – I shall endeavour to keep my posts as a morning thing too.

Have a swell day, folks.

Stupid Web Site

The web site is broken. The latest version of WordPress doesn’t play nice with my GoDaddy Virtual Server. I simply don’t have the time or energy to fight with it, but clearly I will have to take care of it somehow. Step One: get some rest – G’Night!
