Irish Blessings


281.3 lbs

I wasn't going to post this, but when I was poaching my image from the St. Patty's Day post last year, I noticed my weight.  I'm 12 lbs lighter. :-)

To quote last year: 

I'm partying tonight. Don't worry, I've got tomorrow off and cab money for the ride home.

Be safe! Have Fun! Go Green!


May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

Whirlwind Update


279.6 lbs

That was yesterday's weight.'s a little higher, so I think I'll stick with that. 

Kids, SO much has happened in the few weeks I've been gone.  Firstly, I saw LDL.  Boy, did I see him.  A lot.  Like many, many, many times.  Repeatedly.  I saw him.  It was good.  It was really good.  I think you get the point.

Secondly, I haven't hit my gym up with Li'l Bit since being back in town.  This is a bad thing.  I have managed to lose a few lbs and keep them off since the CHALLENGE last month.  This is a good thing.  MAC (said challenger and ADVERSARY) is now with child.  Shit.  I'm SO happy for her, but now the whole percentage of loss thing...totally no longer applicable.  Doesn't mean I'm no longer motivated.  It just means I have to find someone else to blame for my pain when I exercise.  It's always good to have a scapegoat (MAC, I don't think you're a goat...just wanna make that clear).

Holy Followers!  I've jumped 5 followers in the few weeks I've been gone.  That blows my mind!  I am so happy that people like this blog enough to follow it and I've had a steady climb upward, but I've never had such a big jump in numbers before.  It's humbling.  And, of course, it feeds my ego.  Ironic, I know, but it does work both ways.

I have a crazy summer formulating.  The next few months have a lot going on socially.  Great motivation for keeping on track.  Also, lots of reasons to panic a bit since a few involve bathing suits.  I can do it, I just have to gear up for it.  You know what I mean.

To top everything off, I met someone locally.  It's such a new, budding possibility I don't want to talk about it in detail right now.  It's confusing because of LDL.  But, then again, there's the L-D part of the equation which really sucks.  Ugh.  I see him again in May.  Months between visits is not condusive for growing into anything more than whatever it is we are now. 

WTH???  When did my life become so damn complicated????

Oh. Yeah. When sex came back into it.

It is a calorie burner, tho.
