Second Place…

July 26, 2010 2 comments

So it seems that Life, Love & Misery is taking second place to my other blog… For that I am sorry! ūüė¶ I have the idea in my head that this blog will be more for the creative side of my life: writings, poetry, etc… I have simply not been that creative lately. I have been slightly depressed on¬†this change-my-life-from-fat-to-fit journey and, well, writing thus takes a back seat unless everyone wants to read sad and depressing woe-is-me kind of poetry (which I don’t enjoy writing, yet for some reason I have lots of it… and some of it’s pretty good!) Maybe I will go through some older stuff and let everyone get a glimpse of what I used to write. Not sure, just an idea.

OK, well it’s a short post today, I’m off for a rainy run in the mud. Hopefully the exercise will clear my head and erase these damn cravings for bad things (beer and cigarettes at 1:00 pm? That is NOT what I should be wanting right now!). Have a great day everyone!

And a question before I go: What was the hardest thing you’ve ever had to give up and what helped you do it? OK, goodbye now!


Breakfast… and a blog!

July 20, 2010 4 comments

Ok, so I was skeptical at first about blogging. I don’t know why… perhaps I’m just a shy person. But so far, it has been quite interesting. I can write how I feel and feel what I write! And I love to write! So first things first today, pictures of the jet from my run last night! This plane could literally turn on a dime, take off in a REALLY short distance, and go almost vertical on take off… OK, maybe not VERTICAL, but did it ever climb quick!

Ok, next we have the same jet after a landing,… It was actually backing up on the runway! How cool is that?!?¬†So it backed up a ways (very noisily I might add ūüôā ) then took off and did it all over again. Very neat to watch while running in circles around a track! If only the weather could have been nicer… Oh well, moving on!

Overall, I guess I never really thought that blogging could be a fun form of entertainment. Especially while sitting down eating a nice healthy breakfast of strawberries and Kashi Cinnamon Harvest cereal. Very delicious. It just seems like such a trivial thing, to write down what I had for breakfast and how¬†last nights run went, but really, all we need¬†sometimes is a small victory to make everything work and keep us on track. Blogging I have found helps do that. It helps remind me what I am working for… What does blogging do for you?

A New Day…

July 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Ok, so as I mentioned in Post Numero Uno, my weekend went down hill and burned up pretty badly… But today¬†was a new day and one with much to do! To start off, breakfast!

Cottage cheese pancakes (w/ added flax-seed to make it even better) and topped with leftover berry cobbler from¬†the previous¬†night. Personally, I don’t think the picture does this¬†meal any justice, but I’m not a chef by any means… It was still delicious, add some coffee and a large glass of water and it was perfect. I have to keep reminding myself to drink water and LOTS of it!!

Since it was a late wakeup and a later breakfast, lunch was pretty minimal. Dinner (I will spare you all the pictures of that disaster) consisted of baked salmon with a mixture of veggies. Quite good aside from its visual appearance…

Ok, food done, we had many errands to run and did not get out on our morning walk with the dogs as planned but we did however get out to the gym before dinner. The wife did Turbo Kick while I ran some laps on the track. 2.5 miles in 28 minutes with very little walking (I know, it’s not that far, but we all start somewhere).

So I know it’s a short post today but I am tired and work calls tomorrow. I did get some neat photos of a large plane doing some amazing aerial maneuvers while I was jogging that I will try to post tomorrow night. Also, I went all day with no cigarettes and hardly a craving! Hooray!! Small victories that I need to carry through to the bitter end… OK! Goodnight!
