BigAssSuperstar: Un-Weighted: Week Three

A bit of perspective on my weight in recent years:
  • March, 2003: 225 pounds
  • May, 2003: 216
  • November, 2003: 225
  • February, 2004: 225
  • May, 2004: 216
  • October, 2004: 216
  • January, 2005: 220 down to 216
So, my weight over the past three and a half years has gone between highs around 225 pounds and lows around 216. So, I'm currently as slim as I've been in the past several years. Everything from this point on will be a new low for me this century.

Somehow I missed going to the gym this week, but I walked home from work every day but Wednesday. Lunch was the regular healthy fare all week, and I didn't have any donuts -- just one Timbit. Dinners were reasonable, 'cept Tuesday night when we had a special dinner out at Il Mercato on Spring Garden.

(Homemade Italian sausage, pan-fried with carmelized onions, with baby carrots, green beans and fantastic potatoes.) Of course, there was cake. I made a cake for Amanda's birthday on Tuesday (see above), and we ate it. One slice just wasn't enough -- this was goooood cake. Didn't eat it all in one night, but I'll tell ya there's none left today. Pizza one night. Pizza another night (a donair lover's pizza from K.O.D. -- I didn't love it, but I was really hungry Saturday night).

Start weight: 220 pounds
Last week: 216
This week: 216
Change: 0
Total loss: 4 pounds

Yikes. Zero change this week. I did a whole bunch of free squats on Sunday, leading to sore legs on Monday. But it's the good sore -- that painful, gosh-I-must've-done-some-good, can't-wait-for-that-to-heal-so-that'll-be-stronger kind of pain. This week shapes up to be interesting: recovering from a big Amandariffic turkey dinner on Sunday, but enjoying healthy turkey-spawned leftovers through the week... and a big catered lunch at work Wednesday to celebrate a full year since the station launched. Let's hope for a loss this time next week!

  1. Somehow the birthday celebrations turned into a week long event. Don't forget the weekend we had before last when my parents were here - some eating out and of course, donairs (all in the name of introducing same to donair-virgins). Time to buckle down again. Hopefully the superfluous turkey and the re-introduction of the slow cooker into our meal planning will help out during those evenings when I've had a crappy day and just really don't feel like cooking. I too have been at a bit of a weight loss plateau in the past month, but its no wonder when you look at what we've been eating.

A request, as we reach two years

Wow, long time no write.

I didn't enjoy this past winter. I was certainly in a long slump. Things were very challenging at work. Gordon was awesome, as always, but I was just in a sustained funk from last summer on. And I'm not sure I'm all the way out of it yet. I'm still largely in quiet hermit mode, but have been making progress at resuming social contact. Little dude and I have a very busy summer that will go by in a flash.

This Thursday will mark two years since Amanda died. I still replay the events of that night in my head almost every day. I'd like to not. Sometimes it feels like forever ago, but sometimes I'm right there all over again.

Hey, can I ask for your help with something?

Two years ago, so many wonderful people told me that if there was anything they could do to help .... Well, I don't ask often. And I should've asked more. And I should ask more even now. I'm still not comfortable asking. But I'm asking for this.

I put out a vi…

Hard to believe it's been a year - but it has

One year ago today, we lost Amanda.

Time plays tricks on all of us. We can think "that was so long ago" at the same time as "it feels like yesterday." I run into this all the time with Amanda's death.

Yes, it feels like just yesterday, or last night, or later today, that Amanda collapsed in the kitchen and died after that long, brutal battle with ovarian cancer. But every day has ticked by at a pace like any other, and it's been a whole year of those days, with incremental and sometimes revolutionary change.

As I move about our home, it's hard to fathom that she's been gone a whole year.

Many of the decorative items she carefully arranged throughout the house are in the exact same place as the last time she touched them. She had the vision, not me, so I've been reluctant to disturb her decisions on what looks good and works.

In other places, I'm reminded that it's been at least a year since something's been in place. Like the fully-s…

Amanda's cancer has returned, just months after treatment

It's been two and a half months since the last update on this blog, and I was hoping to write one soon with lots of good news.

I was going to write about our recent trip to Jamaica, where we got to go snorkeling, bake in the sun and meet nice people from around Canada and the USA.
I was going to write about how Gordon is now 11 months old and exceeding all our hopes. He's a little dynamo who's not that little -- out of 100 babies his age, no normal one would be bigger. He's spectacular and we love him to bits.


I was going to write about putting the finishing touches on the Twin City Wrestling TV show that I've been working on for the past several months. It's just about ready to be sent in to the broadcaster, and it looks great.
I was going to write about the Canadian Cancer Society using our story in a very moving fundraising letter for their winter campaign in Nova Scotia.
I was going to write about Amanda's trip to Toronto to learn about how Prince Marga…
