August is going to be a fairly busy month. I think I'm going to end up spending most of the time trying not to think about how much sewing I have to do by the end of the month. Nearly every one of Matt's off weekends is called for, too. Because of this, and the ongoing CC fraud drama, I've been thinking a lot about scrapping the trip up to Wisconsin. I really do want to go up and visit everyone, so maybe I'm just finding excuses because I'm lazy, I don't know. I feel like it's too soon to be trying to figure out plane ticket arrangements, etc while we're still disputing a ton of fraudulent ones. All in all, it's been a huge pain in the ass to straighten everything out.
San Antonio sounds like a ton of fun, too, but I'm wondering if it's just not the best time to be doing that right now either. It's really hard for me to tell sometimes if it's practicality speaking, or my inner hermit.

I keep thinking maybe I'm seeing results from the gym, but that's also hard to tell.

I just want to post for the record that I have essentially 2 weeks left until my Month 4 weigh in. I still have not skipped a single day. Even when I've felt like it. I really thought Monday wasn't going to happen. I didn't feel in top form at all, but Malophyte and I went down together anyway. I had one of the hardest work outs I can imagine. I felt like I was dying the whole time, and about to pass out/stroke out/die at any momemt. I didn't think my range of motion or speed was very good at all the whole day, and I was quite afraid the computer was going to say I had a shit workout. The computer said I had the best workout I'd had him months, though. Then again, other days I feel great and feel like I'm doing great and the comp says I've done a shit job. So I guess I really can't judge it based on how I'm feeling that day.
Current Mood: blahblah

I'm glad you've been able to keep going for so long! Does it feel rewarding just to know that you have kept with it for so long and never given up? I think for me that it would, though I know it must be frustrating not to feel a giant reward for all the work already!

I think it's motivation to keep going, more than anything. I do take a little bit of cocky pride that I've managed not to skip at all... especially since I'm such a horrible procrastinator! Since I haven't been seeing the type of results I'd like, though, I'm always very nervous on measurement day, because I don't know if I've gone forward or backward XP

You're always going to be your harshest judge, vis a vis the gym--but I can guarantee there are more changes going on than you can tell--and all of them positive if you're putting that much effort into it :) And I'd love to see a pic of Super Buff Becks when you get the chance!

I always kinda considered the entirity of San Francisco my gym. Since it's always up-hill... I mean, always...

Well, the tops of my shoulders are getting pretty muscular, but you can't see the rest of my muscles quite yet XD They're still hiding under cushions of fat. It really is like body sculpting, though. I feel like I need to take a chisel and knock all this fat off to reveal the muscles underneath, but at least *I* know they're there :P

Trip up north
Hi Becky,
Please don't give up your trip here. We are looking forward to seeing you. I hope you don't change your mind.

Re: Your Mother
She's fine, and her house is still there. :P It wasn't as exciting a storm as the Weather Channel thought it was
