early June, no shots fired edition

June 7th, 2012 at 04:00 am

This week I formally asked for and got time to take the trip to Argentina. I knew I could get it - had plenty of PTO - but its a point of pride not to leave my boss hanging. I'm also taking a number of days off.

As a shareholder of KO, I got the shareholder proxy vote for the 2 for 1 stock split. Voted yes. So much less drama than voting for a person ... and yes I firmly believe that corporations are not people.

Sister's birthday gift is progressing nicely. I've glued the mosaic pieces together. I'll buy the thinset this weekend.

Contractor is tearing down the Greenwood Market building this week. I watched through the hurricane fence and saw the big gaping holes in the front of the building dug out by the dozers. Never had the lowest prices, but they were the most conscientious.

Am holding at 164.2, ready for the next drop down. My lowest weight in the modern era is 163.6.

    You are just a few years younger than me. It was at age 50 when my weight suddenly rocketed out of out control, although nothing in my diet or exercise had changed much. I'm at my heaviest now, at 150 pounds, but that's too much for my height (5'4") and small frame. Ugh. Good luck.

    Oh man. I'm not sure I've rocketed out of control, but those days of losing 5-6 lbs in a week are sure over. I think I need to build more muscle. Ugh indeed.

    I must weigh myself, two weeks after I committed to whittling the waist. I tried to lift my lower body up for scissor stretches and "air pedalling" but couldn't, today. I have been giving my body "temporal tap" messages like "I no longer need to hold onto extra weight" and "my set point weight is 135 lbs." (Ridiculous yes, but if I get down to 142 that is success enough for me). I have been "oxygenating" the abdomen through stretches to boost the metabolism, and taking digestive enzymes so fats and lactase are better assimilated. I thought this excess weight in midyears was only my problem and due to potato chips and sedentary lifestyle but I have a friend who is quite the flaneur and she is heavier than I, and an inch shorter. On May 25 I was 166.
