So keep thinking, I need to write, but I am getting all emotional about stuff, I didn't think was going to be all emotional.  This keeping your emotions in check stuff is hard work.

Anyway, I am leaving Colorado, in a few days, to live in a place well below Denver is terms of everything except my family live there.

So there is a website called which asks some questions then makes a list of places you should live.

Albuquerque, NM
Corvallis, OR
Eugene, OR
Medford, OR
Portland, OR
Salem, OR

That is my top 5,  I know what you're thinking, that is a lot of Oregon. Well that is what i was thinking, I have no idea why it thinks i should move to Oregon.  But in the what does this thing know, I have lived in Albuquerque, I didn't much care for it.

The next page was

Denver, CO
Hartford, CT
Carson City, NV
Reno, NV
Santa Fe, NM
Bend, OR

Denver number 6, and i like it here, i worked in santa fe when i lived in albuquerque, i didn't much care for it
and more Oregon.

Fort Collins, CO
Worcester, MA
Las Vegas, NV
Providence, RI
Provo-Orem, UT
Seattle, WA

I have lived in near Provo and Orem, and chances are that is the city i would chose to live in last!  Like seriously i think i would prefer moosejaw, Manitoba.

Colorado Springs, CO
New Haven, CT
Boise, ID
Missoula, MT
Ogden, UT
Salt Lake, UT

WTF is with all the UT, i mean i have lived there longer than i have lived anywhere else, but i don't want to go back.

So maybe that is what i should take from this list, that seems to think i should live in Oregon, I should move somewhere off the list, since, It messed up the Utah and New Mexico so badly.  So there you have it, I am going to get all excited about moving to the greater DC area, because, well, that is where i am moving.

So i ran sunday, a 5k, and I ran today, 3.0 miles, i was going to do 5k, but I got a phone call, anyway.  When i say run I mean mostly run.  I did really good at running at first, made it 16 minutes of running to start, but then I got to a hill that seems so well unnoticeable while i am driving.  But i walked only for a bit, then i ran, after that I ran 4 minutes walked 1 minute

My legs feel like Jell-O.  So I got that going for me, which I also explains why i am up at 3am.  Well not really, but I am up cause my leg cramped while i was sleeping, and well, that hurts and now i am not tired.

That isn't true, now i am worried about it cramping again, if i go back to sleep, so i am up trying water, which i don't feel like, but I have heard that is the best thing for cramps, and a lot of other stuff.

Speaking of water, and no idea if this is related to my weight loss or merely coincidence, but I also quit partaking diet soda in either Feb or March.  One day the day i quit, I sorta took inventory, I was 4 liters into the day, and it wasn't a remarkable day by any means.  So I said, to myself, self, that is just gross.

So my short term goal (end of August is to get to 179 lbs, at least dabble with it, this is also my weight loss tale.  I weigh in each morning I had daily data from January, but when my old cell phone me its ultimate end I lost all that.  So now i have daily data from July, but still shows the same crap over a short period it doesn't start out at 201.

but here is what i learned, my weight fluctuates alot within a day  don't go as high as before and the lows keep getting lower.

so sunday i weighted in at 183.5, yesterday (monday) 184.5.  I feel like this morning will be slightly higher, but by like between now and next sunday I should hit 183 at least once.

 Anyway, at work a guy keeps asking me how much weight you want to lose?  I don't know that, it turns out i have never been a healthy weight.  I was 130 pretty much till 24 or so, then shot to 180 or so in like a year.  I weighted in roughly the same for the next 15 years.  A couple times I lost a bit of weight, but i never got into the 160 or hit the 200 (well till this year).

So the BMI scale says I should weight around 155, but seems slight.   who knows

it has been a long time since i posted february to be exact.  And well there is a reason for that.  However, I will not get into it here,  some personal things should be kept off the internet.  That statement is like more true then i will admit, but i know when there are things that should be kept private on the off chance someone found them that i would prefer not too.

So my last post on Wheat Belly, giving up wheat is hard, and i didn't do it very well, now i just try to not eat it in the morning or at lunch. 

On the plus side, i weighted in at 201 in January, I am now at 184.  So i got that going for me.

Yesterday, I did the color run in denver, at the start of the race i was standing next to a guy that is going through ABC extreme Weight Loss.  The dude trainer was standing next to him, there is a better than fair chance, that while they're asking him about his first 5k with a cam corder, i was staring at the guys pecs, thinking Dude is ripped, i didn't know who he was.

So i ran the race, which was a fun run/and a lot of folks walking in 37:03, which is pretty am going to try to become friends with my old blog again.

As it turns out I have become quite a tubby lubber, but I am working on it perpetually.

I have been running a lot, and for the first time in a long time I can run 2 miles without stopping, not fast, but running, so yea me.

Anyway, I was looking on line and came across a book called wheat belly.  And read the first 50 pages or so, and 1. bio engineered food is creepy, 2. wheat sucks.

Anyway, so I thought, what the hell I'll go wheatless see what happens, hoping to shed some lbs.

I have only been wheat free for 2 days so I would hardly call this demonstratively proving wheat sucks, but you have no idea how elated I am.

Why you ask.  Cause I am not tired.  For years, since at least 2003 I have been on Ritalin, and Percocet, one to keep me awake and one to keep me asleep, because I showed the symptoms of nacrcolypsy.  Well most of them, they wouldn't actually call it that. 

And even without the wheat, I can still go into REM in less than 2 minutes (actually, quicker than that, but no one believes me when I tell them I can go to sleep pretty much at will).

Anyway, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I have gone 2 days without falling/needing to go to sleep in the afternoon.

Like I said, it has only been 2 days, but they are awesome days.  I just hope they keep coming.  This book talks a lot about antidotal evidence about wheat curing all kinds of ailments.   If something is chronic and wrong and meds don't help, consider going wheat free for a few days, see what happens.

my thoughts on stuff

I watched that movie Ted the other day, and found it an odd mixture of stupidly profane and still manage to remain somewhat touching.  However in the previews there was one whose title i don't remember now, and it said,  "from the film makers that brought you Resident Evil.”  Does this make anyone want to see the movie?

There is so much stuff swirling through my head right now, and well, a great deal of it stems from my naivety. People suck.  That is what i am learning more and more of, and well I don't want to learn it, maybe it is having a job where the only people you deal with are either good at cheating or bad at complying.

Maybe it is just the news,  I don't what it is, but that is my conclusion.

I mean, sorta, I guess, I didn't know the degree to which the same person can be great in one aspect of life and just plain shitty in another.

Oh the plus side, I am glad I got over that.

Next and this is just my brief political take for a minute, but given all the gun control talk of late, and all the folks claiming it is in the second amendment they can own guns, I would like just one person to show where it says that?

That is all for that.

The superbowl is next week, I kinda don't even want to watch.

I went skiing at Loveland today, that was fun, I needed to get out.

new year

I realize that I missed the new year, but nevermind that.  I was dealing with some stuff personally that I didn't want seeping onto the internet.

But I am feeling much better now, so I am back.

I just turned 40, If you had told me when i was 20 that at 40, I would still have every little of anything figure out, well, I would have said that sucks.

It does suck but you know, It is also a good thing, who wants to have all the stuff figured out. I mean if you can answer the question who am I, that kinda means it has been answered. 

I would prefer that answer to remain elusive and ever changing.  Like I one day would like to be able to say I am a musucian, this year, I am going to run a 1/2 marathon.  That is my goal. 

I am a Coloradan right now, but by the end of the year, I hope to be a Virginian,  and well.  That is all. I have, oh also, My calvese hurt, if anyone is reading this that is either young and in shape, I tell you this much, getting back into shape is a BITCH. 

Don't get out of shape i the first place.

That is all.
