Hurt my neck yesterday, after pushing up to 39 on the torture exercise program the night before.  So no exercise yesterday or today.  Neck’s feeling much better now, but best to let it recover all the way.  Should be back at it tomorrow.

Exercise Challenge

31 today!  The last one hurt my arms a little bit more than I prefer.  But not enough to be negative.  Wondering when my first “peak” (as in can’t do more one day than the prior day) will be.

Exercise & Health

Did 27 on the exercise challenge thing tonight.

Also got a set of ultrasounds done on my carotid arteries and my aorta.  Other than still-insane blood pressure numbers, all of that came back normal and okay.

Checked Mayo clinic data on what it all means and whether it means anything or not, and it seems that it is worth it, and that everything (except BP) really is okay.

So, good stuff.  I’m healthier than I think in most regards.

Thursday, September 20, 2012


Went in session last Sunday.  My first metered auditing since 1997!  Awesome results!  Addressed issues I’ve been hiding from in all prior auditing.  Definitely a great experience.

Ended the night on a big win.  Don’t think I’ve ever been more excited or more terrified, both at the same time, ever before!

Did some more on Tuesday night.  Finished up the bit started on Sunday, started the next bits.

Scheduled to finish the intensive and the program on Saturday.  Not sure when I’ll be able to do more, but even a single intensive is a major move in the right direction!

Things are definitely going well for me right now.

Exercise Challenge

Did 20 of the pull-up exercise.  Up from 10 last time.

Secret World

Realized I haven’t posted on this in a while.  (Haven’t posted in a while.  Heck, let’s be honest, I’m a seriously lazy blogger.  But let’s also be honest, this is essentially talking to myself at this point, so the lazy bit probably doesn’t actually matter.)

Still playing The Secret World.  Still buggy, too.  They swat some of the bugs, but seem to introduce new ones, or re-introduce old ones, at close to the same rate.  Nothing catastrophic right now, but it’s definitely distracting.

Main character, Fyrekat, is getting closer and closer to having all the skills maxed out.  Still a long ways to go on abilities, of course, but has a ton of them already.

It’s a fun game.  Good content.  Enjoy it more than am distracted by bugs in the juice.

The best dungeon (so far) is still the first one.  The Cthulhu rip-off in the final boss fight rocks.  Worst so far is the most recent I’ve tried, The Ankh.  Haven’t had a successful run yet, and some of the encounters are WAY too console-game for my tastes.  Hard to get groups for that one, and I understand why.

Space Shuttle

While I was driving to work this morning, I looked up and there was the space shuttle, piggy-back on a jet, flying over me!

Couldn’t get a picture, but it was pretty cool!

It wasn’t very high up.  Couple hundred feet, maybe?


Decided to set a game for myself exercise-wise.  A challenge, as it were.

Set my Total Gym to the hardest slope, and want to get up to 100 “pull ups” on it.  I can (just barely) do 10 right now.  Pretty pathetic, but I have to start somewhere!
