It definitely adds an element of tedium to your commute.

Good morning!

I spent the weekend being productive. The result: all the laundry is folded and put away! Yay! :D

Also, yesterday I made: Gondorian Muffins, Best Blueberry Muffins, Best Blackberry Muffins (Best Blueberry Muffins with blackberries substituted. I think the blueberry muffins are better.), and sausage cheddar biscuits. About half of what I made came to work with me to stock the freezer. Mmmmm. Breakfast. Also, did up The Barbarian's normal pound of bacon, and made hamburgers on the grill for dinner. As part of the productivity equation, I also cleaned all the dishes related to my cooking.

I FELL into bed last night.

Speaking of the grill... I ordered grill parts yesterday. At the very least, I'm going to replace the trough, and hopefully, I will find the source of the starter problem. I'm interested to see how long they take to get here, but they were quite affordable - less than $50 with the shipping to hopefully revivify this grill for another 3 years of heavy service.

My doctor keeps making judgmental faces at me and talking about my weight. She really ticked me off in January, and I was all, like, I'll show her! Revenge weight loss!

This came with a follow on sudden recognition that the gym in my building has pretty much all the equipment I need to take another crack at strength training. Also my Achilles tendons have fully healed, so I could also start using the treadmill for Couch to 5k (with the caveat that I will stop if my ankles seem not to handle it).

Today, I stepped up to the second level of my current weight routine. Increased weight on all exercises, except for increased reps on the prone jackknife. I expect to feel like a granny tomorrow. If not, I'll probably be doing my Zombies Run.

Anyway, I've been doing a decent job of working out regularly, but have only been doing so-so on minding my caloric intake. Well, I intend to use my armor as inspiration for continued fitness and healthy eating, as I would like to trim my waist a bit to show off the lines of the armor better.  NERD INSPIRATION!
