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.
