Come Saturday morning.....

My back has been bothering me lately and I think I finally figured out why. I'm sitting at my computer desk, and it's a huge desk with drawers on both sides and a huge top area. Anyway, I have my monitor set up directly across from the seat and, since it's a flat screen, it's pushed all the way to the back of the desk. Since it's in that grey area that I don't see so well in, glasses for distance and I see fine close up, I can't see it so good. As a result I tend to find myself leaning forward to see better. And I think that is what is causing my back to hurt. Doh!!!!! I'm going to have to rearrange my desk to correct the problem. At least there's an external cause and it's not just my back going bad.

Last night I was exhausted. Just completely and totally drained. I literally fell into bed and was sound asleep within minutes. I did not wake all night. When Hubby got up this morning I just rolled over and went right back to sleep ag…

Is it December yet???

Wow, this schedule is killing me. I may not make it to December :)

Due to my crazy schedule workouts have been sporadic. I really want to but the sometimes sleep wins out. I'm hoping I'll adjust. I have Thursdays off now so that may make it a little easier.

I just need to be left alone to sleep through the night. Nala has been having seizures, so any little noise she makes wakes me up. I am sitting here typing this and I am soooooo tired. You have no idea.

The good part is, my food has been very good. I have no time to eat junk so that's definitely good. I don't think I'll be needing diet pills anytime soon.

Well, I'm off to bed early. I want to do my strength training in the morning. I need to get a workable routine going.

Funny

Does this sound like any news stories you've read lately, or any hot air spouted by any politicians??

Bread Is BadFound here: 1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.
2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.
3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.
4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.
5. Bread is made from a substance called “dough.” It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average North American eats more bread than that in one month!
6. Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s dis…

General grumbling.....

This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off!!! Why do spammers feel the need to copy what I wrote in a post and put it in the comments??? Stop it!!!! Jez, I hate spammers. You have no idea how many spam comments I get. This blog doesn't get too many. Flo's Place gets hunderds a day. So freaking annoying!!!! Spammers, get a life!!!!! This was a comment left yesterday:

I ran across this article yesterday on Starling Fitness. Seems that vegans and vegetarians have to be careful to get enough B12 or their brain will shrink. I've always found the arguments for vegetarianism interesting. It's one thing if you don't like meat, I know a few people like that. But to actively avoid it for supposed health reasons just cracks me up. First off if you look at our teeth you will quickly realize we were made to eat meat and veggies. We have the front teeth that rip and the rear teeth that grind. That allows us to eat both meat and veggies.

JERK!!!! People who go around doing…

Good reads, good TV, generally interesting stuff

It seems I've been running across some really interesting reading in the blogosphere lately and I decided it was time to post about some of these.

First, I ran across this article yesterday on Starling Fitness. Seems that vegans and vegetarians have to be careful to get enough B12 or their brain will shrink. I've always found the arguments for vegetarianism interesting. It's one thing if you don't like meat, I know a few people like that. But to actively avoid it for supposed health reasons just cracks me up. First off if you look at our teeth you will quickly realize we were made to eat meat and veggies. We have the front teeth that rip and the rear teeth that grind. That allows us to eat both meat and veggies. Secondly, look at our intestines. Cows, who eat only veggies, have very long intestines while dogs, who eat mostly meat, have short intestines. Humans have mid-length intestines because we are made to eat both meat and veggies. Finally, humans as a spe…

One of the major parts of the journey to a healthy weight is to change your habits. If you are overweight and out of shape, clearly the habits you have aren't working for you. So those habits have to be changed.

When I began this journey many, many moons ago, I knew lots of things about my life had to change. I also knew that it wouldn't be easy and it would take time. I set out first to change my activity. As a child I was incredibly active and I felt that would be the easiest to change significantly. I was right. It took me time but I've really gotten to the point where I prefer to be active than inactive. Given some time to kill I would prefer to do something even if it's just clean something or go for a short walk. I'm still not as active as I'd like to be, but I work to be as active as I can.

I also knew I had to change my food. What I ate. How much I ate. When I ate. All of it needed to be overhauled. I knew I couldn't change it all at o…

It's a quiet morning

As is my typical pattern, I have a ton of stuff to do but instead of doing any of it, I sit here playing with my blogs. Not good. I have 2 presentations due next week, 1 is half done. I have mountains of reading to do. I have to clean the birdie cages and my house. Plus I have a meeting at noon. At least I don't have to search the internet for any blemish acne cream. I think I'm well past that now.

I want to workout this morning but I can't seem to get my butt of this chair. I was going to do a strength session but I like to do those on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. Don't ask me why, I sure don't know. I was going to go hiking this morning but it rained most of yesterday. I don't feel like hiking in mud. Well, I'm going to go do something. Sitting here is not getting anything I have to do or want to do done. So now I'm going to move.......
