Done Again

June 29th, 2011 by Ian

Again, I’ve had enough with the blog. I have nothing to say really, don’t have the time to give it a revamp, and haven’t even been documenting “life events” anyway.

I’ll leave it here, but expect it to stagnate. I may even start removing some functionality.

I will continue to keep the squids.ca domain up though. I still use it for lots of other things — just not blogging so much any more.

Quinn got his driver’s license

Well, it’s all done now.  We can all drive!  He’s still the most cautious driver on the road — which is fine by me.

A new year

January 3rd, 2011 by Ian

Well, the season is over, time to buckle down on the weight loss again.   I took a break over the last — month I guess, though I did monitor my weight to make sure it didn’t go up too much.

So, I’m a little higher – about 204, but I’ve kept it pretty constant around 202 most of the time.  I’ll start posting my weight and watching what I eat starting tomorrow.

Whee!

Getting harder…

December 6th, 2010 by Ian

The last two weeks haven’t gone very well weight lose wise (fine otherwise).  I see a couple problems:

  1. ‘Tis the season.  I’ve been to a couple good parties and let the diet slide — probably WELL exceeded my calorie limits, but I wasn’t tracking it.  A guy’s got to have some fun too!
  2. I think my body is getting hip to what’s going on and starting to slow down.  My metabolism is slower, and, frankly, I feel like crap — feeling weak and just “not well”.

I only want to go about 10 more pounds, so I’m trying to keep on it — Shelley thinks I’m getting too skinny already.  She’s happy with where I’ve gotten to.  To quote: “I’ve had the baby” — which is true.  Most of the “gut” is gone, I can tuck shirts in correctly now and feel better about myself, but I just want to get down to 195 so I can bounce around between 195 and 200 lbs.  I think that would be about the right place for me.

So, I’m persevering for the moment now, redoubling effort, and maintaining my drive — but it gets harder all the time.

A little addictive….

November 16th, 2010 by Ian

So this weight loss thing is getting a little addictive (or something).  Now that I’m seeing some motion, it gets harder and harder to slow down.  It’s going REALLY quickly right now.  Frankly, it’s going TOO quickly (2 to 3 lbs a week!) and I need to get my calorie count up a bit.  My fear is that once I start to let it go, I won’t be able to stop it.  It’s easier to keep tight control than to loosen up some.

Today, I forgot my lunch at home — packed up the griefcase (sic) and left it there.  This is NOT good.  I’m hungry and have very few ways to rectify that.  I need to get SOMETHING into me and am contemplating a bag of chips.  What’s 300 calories between friends?
