Spare the Knee, Spoil the Child


My knee is slowly getting better.  It started when I was at my mother in-law's house setting up her replacement computer.  I was down on my knees and there was a load POP!  It hurt like crazy but it started feeling better right after that.  I'm still taking it slowly but I think I'll be okay.  I ran a bit this week and it was just stiff.  No real pain.  I'll dial it up next week and see how that does.

Loving the new phone still.  Since it has the weather, I check it before I get dressed to go to the track.  Its still pretty cold here in the mornings but sometimes a warm morning will sneak up on you.  I hate having to get dressed twice for my workout.

I'm still not tracking my food as closely as I should.  I'm better but not where I should be yet.  I start out strong in the morning but by the time midday rolls around, I'm just letting it slide.  I'm still eating the stuff I'm supposed to.  I'm just not tracking it.  This is something I'll work on.

Speaking of walking/running, I finally got my gym membership updated.  I got up this morning and it was pouring rain.  I don't mind running in snow and ice but I really don't like running in the rain that much.  So I got my membership paid up and used the indoor track.  Waiting in line to fix my membership was a pain.  There is always a rush on gyms after the new year.  It normally dies down around March or so.

As some of you know, I wear a Body Bugg to track how many of my calories I'm burning.  One of my coworkers asked me how I was burning so much.  My answer.running..nothing burns calories like running.

Here is a shot of how yesterday played out for me.


For the most part, I burn about 1.7 - 2.0 calories per minute.  That's the steady, low parts of the cart.  There are always some spikes from taking the trash out or that one at 3pm when I went to the store.  But the most dramatic change comes from when I went for my run.  You can see that my caloric burn jumped up to about 13.2 calories per minute.

Progress Report

Two notable things happened.  First I dropped another pound.yeah!  And second I had to buy some smaller pants.  My old ones were falling off me.

As for the web site, I continue to repair the archives.  I don't have half of it done yet.  So be patient with me.  As soon as I fix that, I'll try to fix the front page. 

Anyway, all done for this week..get out there and burn some calories!


I completely spaced and forgot to extend my ownership of www.TokenFatGuy.com!  I thought my renewal date was next month.  Anyway, the bill has been paid and in a few days the site will show up correctly again.  I'm such a goober. 

Anyway, sorry for the inconvenience.  I think the site has been offline for about a week.
