loving challenges


what was I thinking?... well, I did not get to the gym this morning... I stayed at work an extra half hour and then looked at the clock and decided it was not wise to rush through a workout and shower in an hour because I was an hour away from a doctor's appointment... the follow up appointment from last month for the results of the kidney sonogram and the blood presure medication I finally gave into and the minor surgery for removal of some skin bumps around my neck that irritate when I wear a shirt... the doctor was happy that my weight was down 10 pounds from last month's visit... the blood pressure was lower, but still a little high, but not enough to change or up the medication... the kidneys are normal (ha... I know better, but the pictures showed nothing I guess)... and fifteen little skin bumps that popped up around my neck over the years were removed... the what was I thinking part of all this is... now going to the gym today is not wise cuz I've got fifteen bandaids around my neck (I look like Dr. Frankenstein's first monster, the one that did not get a movie or a book written about him) because all that perspiring and the shower afterwards is the last thing the bandaids and the cauterized skin under the bandaids needs... so I am taking the day off...

I wonder if I planned it this way...

I doubt it, since I had every intention of rushing home from work and over to the gym before heading to the doctor and there would have been time if people would have showed up on time so I could have gotten out on time but as usual, the management could not get their acts together and schedule people in on time so I stuck around until enough people showed up... and then I impulsively stopped for bread and milk cuz I knew I needed bread and milk... an hour and $81 later, I was carrying a bunch of bags up the stairs and stuffing the fridge with more food... lots of protein, even meats (extra lean beef, turkey, pork) and fish... and I then proceeded to eat as if I hadn't eaten in a month, giving into the body craving for protein, I guess... so much for the ten pounds I dropped, huh?...

ah, but the whole point of all the working out and rigid adherence to healthy habits is to enjoy the sweet tastes of indulgence now and then... if only someone was here to share it, it would be even better... alas, and I wasn't going to hit the chocolate, but now that I added loneliness to this mini-binge (it doesn't become a full binge until the next meal and if that is a bowl of oatmeal or veggies or something equally healthy, then it remains a mini-binge), I think I'll pop some chocolate into the mix... the chocolate has been sitting around for a few weeks, so I have been exhibiting amazing will power (shhhhh, it'll go to my head if I acknowledge that)... meanwhile, the fifteen little dots around my neck that are no longer there are hurting, or I guess it's the spots where those dots were are hurting... the lidocaine is wearing off... hopefully the pain won't get too annoying and the healing will go down quickly and I can get back to the health-nut status I was moving toward... but for now, chocolate...

meanwhile, more bad news comes from my fantasy baseball teams... this is the worst start and the worst luck I've seen in all the years I've played... and just when I thought things would have to start turning around, one of my hottest players (Richie Sexton) goes on the DL (that's disabled list, or 15-day injury list for anyone not familiar with the sports term)... so now I have four of my best players on the DL and it's amazing I am anywhere near shouting distance from the others in the league (I refer to the four team league consisting of my roommate, his brother, and a friend from work)... I am fourth, but actually in good shape because if the four on the DL return and I don't fall farther behind, I should be able to leap a few spots... I need to improve my pitching to make a move on first though... and so, to the chagrin of my Seattle friends, I reluctantly dropped Joel Pineiro cuz his poor start is hurting the team... alas, a few days late as a few players I'd have liked to have picked up were picked up by someone else... again, bad luck as the timing of my moves were based on players coming off the DL and they moved a few days too late...

the other leagues are doing little better as I went for similar players who should be doing a whole lot better than they are doing... so I've got my work cut out for me and that is more excitement than I expected which is actually great cuz I love a challenge and like the old saying I am just making up goes, "when you want to climb a mountain, do not choose a hill" and of course, because it is there... you should have joined in the fun...

there's Raspy now, coming home from work, so this entry will be interrupted now and continued whenever if at all or another entry will follow eventually and I just sneezed so it must be true...

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...

you know that box to the right on the dland entry page called recent public entries?... what do the asterisks mean?... and the bold?...
