I'm Flattered...And Flustered

Yesterday as I was walking to work, one of the other business owners down the plaza shouted to me.

"Hey Dave, how ya' doing?"
"Not bad, Don, you?"
"Doing good. You're looking fine!"

Now, I'm not sure if he was being honest or if he was just being nice so I'd let him look something up on the internet in my shop later that afternoon. Either way, I'll take the compliment because, damnit, I feel fine!

....And now for another update....

Two more pounds and I lose the word "morbidly"!!
According to the charts, I should weigh 189 max. to be in the "normal" category.
I can't even imagine! I'm sure my bones weigh more than that.

For the past few days I've been doubling my treadmill routine, so I'm doing a total of 90 minutes which is about 4 1/2 miles and around 900 calories a day.

I can't wait for that ensuite to be done so we can move into that bedroom and I can set up our weights in the office where the treadmill (and our bed) is. I need to get going on weight training.

Speaking of the ensuite, it looks like we're going to have to take a close look at the wiring Joe did in there. We had a co-worker of The Squeeze's stop by the house last night and while we were showing him and his wife around, I happened to touch the light switch he installed in the ensuite. It was sitting somewhat crooked in the box on the wall, so I just moved it slightly, and the power cut off. Upon closer inspection, it appears that the wire he had connected to the switch had snapped. It broke right where he cut away the insulation on the wire. Ya, it appears he severly clipped the wire itself while stripping off the insulation, so there we were with a live wire hanging there in the box. Scary! So it's quite possible that we could have any number of wires just ready to give way.

Two days ago we had a guy from a reputable plumbing place in to see what needs to be fixed so we can pass inspection. We're awaiting his phone call so we can get things rolling.

Wish us luck.

wtg man! you can keep it up! How inspiring :)
Way to go! I'm sure you are looking fine. And it's so nice to know other people are noticing. All people ever tell me is "Oh, you don't need to lose weight." *sigh* Yes, I do. I just wear my clothes well!
Did I ever tell you about how my parents hired a completely incompetent contractor to renovate their home and it pretty much destroyed their marriage and their lives?

Not that I'm suggesting there's any connection or parallel. Just a random thought.

Lets tie him down and paint the gyblue
