Awwww. ..Mike -- Can you stick some TLC in with your goals this week?
When I think of you, I often think of that BAN Hammer & it gives me the picture of you giving the good ole' 1-2-3 Punch.
I know that somewhere deep down you got the fight in you.
Unlike Tori, I won't take the week off. I will wait until Mardi Gras (tomorrow) is over with, so I'll get back on Wednesday. I do need to drop some weight b/c I've put on 15 pounds of fat since I last went clothes shopping. I now have to squeeze in my shirts like sausage in its casing. I freaking look like Baby Huey.
My weigh in yesterday was 185.4 so I'll try to get down to 181 this week.
I'll probably only write 2 policies since I'm taking part of the week off. Well I wrote a flood policy that doesn't count towards my bonus this morning... so 2 MORE.
I'll figure out the rest later but I'm open for suggestions or challenges!
That's why I asked how long lent is! LOL ... I talk like a trucker sometimes.
40 long days and nights. I'm not a trucker, it's worse I'm like a pissed off construction worker. Growing up we weren't allowed to use any of that language in the house, my dad is a real stickler for clean speak. But my maternal grandfather was quick with a four letter word, even better he could string them together almost poetically, and he was FUNNY, like a short white Eddie Murphy with a red come-over. He died when I was 11 and my brothers and I sort of took to using his favorite phrases in his memory, of course only when dad wasn't around. Anyway then I went to college and ended up an architect, and seriously when you work in construction, it helps if you can string together a colorful sentence. Somehow that communicates a lot more clearly than a well written memo. It also helps to ease the gender gap if the guys understand that you aren't easily offended, which I'm not.

So it's the rest of February and all of March? Hmmmm, I'll have to think on this a bit. I'm thinking of making it that diet coke that I have every night with dinner and cursing. With the stress I've been under lately it can't sound great sometimes! I do have restraint at work though because I keep it professional for the customers. If I can do that for them, I should be able to do it all day then too right? LOL
So that's it! Diet Coke & swearing!

I wish it were muscle. Muscle doesn't jiggle like this. I'll take any challenge.
I'm waiting on Tori to make a baby Huey crack at me.
LOL, that was me working out this morning, jiggle jiggle jiggle ouch, jiggle jiggle jiggle ouch. When is your marathon?
Okay my challenge to you this week is to keep up with me:
Monday - walk 5 miles
Tuesday - 60 min upper body and abs
Wednesday - 60 min cardio (+ possibly 60 min zumba)
Thursday - 60 min yoga
Friday - 40 min Buns of steel + 40 min abs

Quin, I'm glad to see you back on board, you've been missed and I think I speak for the group as a whole when I say we've been worried.
meachan, how cool that you're a composer. That's music right?
Well I have to get going, good news here is that I've talked DD into giving up sweets along with me for moral support and she's thrown "watching television" on top of that.
