the stupid stick

While I personally would still be much happier if Hillary had won the nomination. I’m ok with Obama and very ok with his choice of Veep. In fact his choice in my mind leads me to trust him a bit more as my candidate. McCain on the other hand first met Palin in February of this year and had a telephone conversation with her. That is the full extent of his familiarity with Palin until he spent time with her last week. That’s how seriously he is taking the presidency of the United States. It’s simply unbelievable recklessness. It’s Bush-level recklessness. Its obvious someone’s been hit a few times too many with the stupid stick.

I will never get thinner if I don’t have a reason to get thinner. A simple but true statement. I realized sometime late this afternoon that I have entered into an a bit of a funk. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. I haven’t secured a job yet, granted we have been here less than a month. Money is tight but we are o.k. The choice for me to move here was and still is a good one. It was necessary. I am confident that I will have a really good job. People lose there focus, I’m not the only one and things that you would want to get done take a lot longer than planned. I was supposed to go to a GLBT pagan gathering in WeHo this afternoon and I wanted to but just really felt that it would be better when Im’ in a happier place. Right now I need to take care, continue to trust in the process and everything will manifest at the right time. Oh yeah and write down why I need to get thinner and healthier. See how easy it is to distract oneself. I’m putting together a plan for the boflex combined with yoga and cardio on the wii, I do like the boxing. The starting point is below. The goal is 200 pounds 32-34″ waist, maintain chest (tighten).

todays weight (and be thankful I didn’t post the before pic!!) is 247 with 34% body fat.

my measurements are

arms: 16.5″
forearms: 12.5″
neck: 16.25″
chest: 46″”
waist 44.5″
Thighs: 24.5″
Calfs: 18″

Obviously the two areas I’m going to make changes to are the chest and the waist. growing one and shrinking the other.
