A happy coincidence that this showed up today. In addition to arriving on the day I was finally able to share my day job news, this is a medium. I have worn an XL tee my entire adult life.
Feeling some side effects, mild soreness in my arms and stomach. On top of the sleepless night, I took a full sick day. Finishing with some giant monster action.
First shot down, second shot scheduled. I will be fully vaccinated in time for Memorial Day weekend. Looking forward to get out to enjoy it somehow, anyhow, with less to worry about.
Celebrating a very good day. An excellent brew day, then an appointment for my first vaccine shot. This cream ale of mine is, at risk of seeking immodest, crazy delicious.
Got the results of my first cholesterol test since big diet and exercise changes six months ago. Total cholesterol is down by 40. My doctor reduced my statin by half. We’ll look at eliminating altogether in six more months, at my next annual.
I finished week five of my 5K training program this morning. Twenty minutes nonstop, longest I’ve been able to run since high school. And in 25F weather. Didn’t feel great but solidly possible and rewarding.
I baked these on Sunday and froze them for the coming weeks. We thawed a half for barbecue sandwiches (using soy curls) last night. These may be the best loaves I’ve baked yet.
Today I reached my weight loss goal. The last time I was at this healthy weight was sixteen years ago. I am not done, rather I get to close this chapter and begin another, for the rest of my life, continuing and adding to the healthy habits I’ve worked hard to establish.
One more because I had been looking forward to wearing this shirt I bought over ten years ago again. The fit was always ambitiously slim from the day I bought it. I guess I should have tried it on sooner.
I bought this shirt the weekend I interviewed the crew at ESB, a few years ago. It was always a bit tight. 2 lbs from my goal, now it fits nicely. Actually may even be a touch too big.
