I think I better start working out. I’m feeling sluggish. I’m at the age where you can see your metabolism slowing down. And by that, I mean that if I drink a milkshake, my ass will jiggle for a week. Not that I have much of an ass these days, but that’s a whole other blog post!

Anyway, my good friend (and lousy Call of Duty player) Brian told me about Nike+. It’s a system that allows your iPod to track your running habits, distances, times, etc. To break it down, you put a small trasmitter into your special Nike shoes and it sends a signal to a receiver attached to your iPod. The iPod then stores this information until you download it to your PC. From there, you can track your progress on the Nike+ website. And if you’re feeling a little cocky, challenge some friends with some running. My hope is to set something up on the blog to show my progress to everyone. Maybe you’ll be impressed! Maybe you’ll just point at me and laugh. Screw you. I’m used to it.

Anyway, I’ve got goals here. As I start this, I’m weighing 213 lbs. About 13 lbs more than I’d like. But I think I can take it down to 190 lbs. I’ve done that before. So feel free to follow me on my quest. I am self imposing a deadline of February to be down to 200 lbs. And by April to be at 190 lbs.

Will he succeed? Will he flop? Place your bets!

Today's Deep Thought

  • I scrambled to the top of the precipice where Nick was waiting. "That was fun," I said. "You bet it was," said Nick. "Let's climb higher." "No," I said. "I think we should be heading back now." "We have time," Nick insisted. I said we didn't, and Nick said we did. We argued back and forth like that for about 20 minutes, and then finally decided to head back. I didn't say it was an interesting story.
