The wedding shower weekend

What with all of the guests and visitors and activities this weekend, there was simply no time to post in “real time”. This morning, I’ve posted 3 backdated posts that cover the entire weekend:

Friday
Saturday
Sunday

Up at 6:40 this morning. Took Kelly into work and then took my to the airport. Kelly heard from the service department. They want to do all kinds of repairs, and we were leaning toward just getting rid of the car (we really don’t need two), but if we pair down the repairs to those required to make the car last a few more months, then it’s not too bad and it looks like that’s what we are going to do.

There’s a softball game today, but I’m not playing. We’ve got the car situation to deal with, plus, it’s the first day of my writing workshop and there’s stuff to do for that.

It’s also the first day of me and Kelly’s final 8 weeks of better eating and exercise before the wedding. I’m aiming for 155 lbs. I’m 152.2 right now, but I’d like to move some mass around (mostly away from the gut) and tone up a bit. I’m not eating today until dinner, just drinking water in order to clean out my system. Then I’ll eat before I got to the gym tonight. I’m really trying to cut back on carbs at night, and sugars generally, so this might be a tough 8 weeks. We’ll have to see.
