  1. Gush away! It's nice for you to get to experience, and it's fun for those of us on down the path a ways to relive those early days through y'all.
  2. Thanks, she is feeling much better today. That's a huge relief for me after a long scary night, then apart from work she pretty much slept all day yesterday, too. My super-elite OT sister-in-law is going to help me out with some active recovery stuff (strengthening and stretching) for neck bones in addition to the traction, so I'm really optimistic about my chances for improvement without surgery. ______________________________ W0D6 - All green, and we're streaking! Eating was solid. I had leftover meatballs in tomato sauce for lunch at work. Later in
  3. Thanks! Weekend might be a skosh tougher to keep buttoned down, but I think I'll work it out. __________________________ W0D5 - All green again. Eating was good enough even though it wasn't entirely according to plan. I was on the road all day since I had to be up in The City for the neurosurgery consultation. While I was in the city I did some business with Guitar Center and converted two electric guitars I don't play anymore in to a single acoustic-electric plus a couple hundred bucks cash. But that meant I now had an acoustic guitar in my car on a hot OK day, so I wasn
  4. Thanks! I enjoy it, and I'm glad they're getting better. So far I've only built one from scratch, and that's my daily player. The current build is for the competition, but it's one that I've wanted for a long time so I'll probably keep it unless someone makes an insane offer on it. The other projects you've seen were rehabs and kits. A couple of those were for my son, and one of them I gave to my brother. The dragon mermaid guitar was part of a trade deal this morning in exchange for a brand new acoustic guitar. The other two are still on my rack waiting for more upgrades. ________
  5. Nah, the movie didn't mess up my goals, I threw a tantrum because I didn't want to go to bed. It's not even that kind of bad. Terrible movies are a guilty pleasure because they can be off-axis entertaining. This one just blows. It's great to be seen! I hope y'all get to see both more and less of me soon, whenever I get back to doing progress photos. ___________________________ W0D3 - Basically a copy of D2. Going back to full-time in the office is a harder adjustment than I anticipated, but I'm getting there. I'd gotten a little slack about pe
  6. Thirding Tank from a different perspective: wedding-planning sites weren't a thing when I got married back in 2004, but the weddings I've been invited to in the past few years have used The Knot and it was very helpful as a guest/participant to be able to pull all the salient info up on my screen at any given moment.
  7. I haven't done a single burpee since basic training (1996), and I won't ever do another one. There's plenty of better ways to spend my time and energy. It works okay as a sleep goal, but it doesn't work so well as a pass/fail metric since I'll hardly ever actually "pass" it. A full night's sleep that's less than 8 hours is a good thing, whereas getting 8+ but yanked out early by an alarm (not likely, but possible) is counter-productive yet technically a pass. I also can't really measure or control the amount of sleep I get, which makes it less S.M.A.R.T. than a simple bedtime
  8. Nice to see so many familiar faces! Thanks all for following along. W0D1 - Figured I'd go ahead and jump right in since I'm already coming off a prolonged Week Zero. Yesterday's eating was really good, I had a small sausage biscuit and some orange juice between church services, then for lunch I made a 3-egg omelet with ham, cheese, and tomatoes. I snacked on a handful of cashews throughout the afternoon, then for dinner I grilled steaks and made baked potatoes while MFG put together some mixed veggies. Dessert was pound cake with strawberries. MFP says 2316, and I'm inclined
  9. Ah, it feels good to be back. As usual my major regret is not returning sooner, but I also know that coming back before I was ready would've been worse than waiting. At any rate, that's all behind with nothing but good times (DOMS notwithstanding) ahead. If you're at all curious about where I went when I fell off Planet NF then please check out the post in my log: https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/107485-whats-great-for-a-snack-and-fits-on-your-back/&do=findComment&comment=2688089. tl;dr is that life is hard and I only had enough energy for non-fitnessy
