fulenn I'm very glad she is going to try. I just need to figure out the best way to stay out of the line of fire for the next few days.
Debbie I think I mentioned getting a tat to the wife, she told me it was just my mid life crisis talking..meh could be.
MixedGrains Haha....You know though. It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Especially if I were to get a vegan tattoo.
carollynne In two months we have our long time friends coming to stay for several days. They have both quit smoking in the past couple of years. The wife is losing weight right now. I think she sees the need to have some amount of weight-loss success doing whatever she's doing, or she'll look pretty foolish to our friends. She's officially lost 86 pounds since the beginning of 2010, which is an awesome accomplishment.
VegSexy That's always been what has stopped me from getting a tattoo. "What will I still like in 20, 30, 40 years. My wife says her sister had roses tattoo'd on her breasts 20 years ago, now that she is 150 pounds heavier, they look like wounds or skin cancer.
bunsofaluminum I think steampunk is supposed to be an alternate history / timeline where fossil fuels where never "discovered", but technology still advanced. Think Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.
Lots of continued stress at work this week. And damnit I'm am still an emotional eater. I didn't get my fasting day in on Tuesday because I had lunch with my Mom. Then Wednesday night I binged really bad. I ate a LOT of food, however the only think off plan were some chocolate chips i got into.
I think everything I was stressing about with work got resolved Yesterday to my benefit. So I'm much less stressed now. Finally at "normally" for the first time in over a week. Think I'll stay away from the scale until next Wednesday, I'm sure it's pretty bad.
Yesterday was the first day I did not go to the gym or workout or anything. I was watching TV with the wife and she said I looked pale, and was I alright. I told her I felt fine, but my BP was probably a little high because I had not exercised. She checked it and it was 137/87, so I went down to the treadmill, and did 2 miles in 30 minutes, BP dropped to 110/68 and hour later. Guess I have to be an exercise addict now.
The one thing I have noticed is my lack of soreness after lifting weights. I remember about 10 years ago or so, we joined a gym and I hit the weights really hard the first day, and could barely move for the next week. Then 5 years ago, I started slow, but once I started lifting to failure, I would be fairly sore the following day. This time I purposely started out slow, lifting lighter weighs, but now I've been pushing it. I can't seem to make myself sore the day after the workout. So I'm concerned that I'm not building muscle, or maybe this is just Vegan Super Powers, I don't know.
Happy Friday everybody!
