Some's better than none

The weigh-in this noon says I dropped 0.2 pounds this past week, which isn't much, but it is a loss and I'll take it. Just in time for the State Fair, they were handing out an unofficial point value sheet for some of the more common snacks at the Fair, and bearing in mind that my daily point limit is 34 points some of these items are pretty horrendous - brownies 15 points, corn dogs 16, footlong w/chili and cheese 16, gyros 15...the list goes on and one, reflecting the unfortunate truth that most of the food at the Fair is either dripping with fat, breaded and fried, or mostly composed of high fructose corn sweeteners. (Bag of Mini-Donuts: 25 points.) One bit of helpful advice was to share the food, which strikes me as a very good idea.

I'm not too sanguine about next week's weigh-in. Whatever's wrong with my foot/leg, the doctor's advice was to rest it, and that's not going to be too easy. Especially if phoenixalpha insists on trying to use me as her personal taxi to downtown instead of using her alarm, getting her butt up and catching the bus.

Hey, Kevin.

Be careful with the leg. Have a great time at the fair. I made it there twice! Unemployed people have lotsa time, doncha know.

See you at the apa collation on the 11th.

Ah, but you won't see me there, remember? There's this wedding in Hastings that Melody and I were invited to...

Have you tried pilates? I'm planning to give it a shot in the next few months, if i can fit it into my schedule.

I think if I sign up for any kind of exercise program, it's going to be with the Tae Kwon Do dojo up the way. Beating on things is therapeutic, so I get physical and mental benefits! ^^

Sounds good. But isn't that a bad idea when your leg is troubling you? Pilates is completely non-impact, while Tae Know Do is.

Still, kicking and punching a sandbag *does* release a lot of stress. Especially if you have to put up with annoying coworkers all day ;-)

Meant to say, "Pilates is completely non-impact, while Tae Know Do is not".

Gotcha. Well, I'm hoping the leg thing gets straightened out by the end of September, and we'll see what happens then, I guess.
