Year 2/Day 145


Yet another day of traveling.  This time it’s not for “fun”.  Will’s dad took a turn and has been in the hosital for a couple of days.  We’re headed to San Jose, CA to spend time with his parents and see if we can help at all.

Unfortunatley, we had some plane issues and after we had already boarded the plane and spent a good 45 minutes or so aboard, they told us that the maintenance crew had tried to replace a part.  Which didn’t work, and now we need to deplane and go to another aircraft.  Yay.

Eventually we got to where we needed to be, with a safe plane to fly.  Our flight was nonstop from Atlanta to San Jose…a 4 1/2 hour flight. Good news for us…we flew first class.

Let me start a new paragraph for this explanation.

First class is…worth the money.  Damn.

Free drinks, by that I mean…free alcoholic drinks.

And a hot towel!

Dinner was served, at no charge, with real dishes and silverware. No plastic stuff here! There was even a cloth placemat provided. And peppermint chip ice cream for dessert. Yum!

After everything was cleaned up, I watched Elf and dosed in and out of consciousness until we landed. Once landed, we headed to baggage claim and found out our rental car place had closed. So, we rented a cab to the hotel, checked in, and went to sleep. Night, night.

Year 2/Day 96

Year 2 - Day 96

I’ve been doing really well trying to eat better, and I actually like going to the gym now (eeks…).  It’s interesting how “bad” some foods are when you take a moment and really look at them from a macro-nutrient level.  No more fast food for me thanks.  My whole day is blown in just one meal!

It’s also interesting how some “good” foods are broken down differently than you’d expect. (Example: hard boiled eggs are a good source of protein, but are rather high in fats.  Good fats, but still fats.)  I am enjoying the fact that the healthier I eat, the more healthy I want to continue eating.  Now don’t get me wrong, there are days when I just want a big bowl of cheesy pasta and ice cream and french fries and…you get it.  But on average, I’m good.

Year 2/Day 48


First day back at the gym.  Eeks.

And I went twice today!  First, I met with a trainer in the afternoon and then went back after work with Michelle.  I’ve got to get back in shape.  I’ve been noticing that I’ve become weaker and stiffer, and I need to make some changes.

My schedule is already full, but if I don’t carve out some time for my health now I’m only creating more problems in the future.

So it begins.
