TMI Tidbit #2: What happens in the bathroom, Stays in the bathroom. Usually.


Cat Hiding Face (CC)

I can’t bear to watch!

Everybody does it.

Everybody knows that everybody does it.

It’s part of being human.

We don’t talk about it though.

At least, not in polite company.

But when we are with our friends and there is beer involved, then, the truth comes out….

…we all dance in the bathroom!

If you just got this mental image of ball gowns, feather boas, rhinestones and bugle beads, that would be bathroom of the drag queen who lives across the courtyard from me.  She is a special case, as is her bathroom.   Nope–I’m talking about the rest us, with garden variety “basic” “average” bathrooms.  Although I must confess that my bathroom not quite “basic” nor  “average” as it is tastefully decorated with a lovely “cats and  books” theme done in browns, reds and rich wood tones.

Ahem.  But I digress.  😉

Back to dancing in the bathroom.

Counting up the Small Victories


Man weighing himself on a scale [CC]Ok, confession time… …I’ve not exactly been a “good boy” since coming back from Worlds.  So, this past weekend, I got myself moving again, figuratively speaking.

I also have let you know that it is TOUGH getting moving in a positive direction after after falling back on old habits!  Yes, friends and neighbors, breaking a downward spiral is tough.  Really tough.  I found myself thinking today “Gaining weight and getting out of shape is easy; loosing weight and getting into shape is hard.  Very hard.”  [Watch for a coming post on the difference between “being overweight” and “being out of shape”.  They often are used synonymously but they are actually two different things.

Tanita ScaleSo here I am, looking at the numbers this week on the scale and NOT feeling great about the numbers I’m seeing.  I track both weight and body fat by weighing twice a day.  For body fat, I use the TBF-531 Body Fat Monitor/Scale by Tanita.   It uses the electrical impedance method of measurement.

Omron Body Fat MonitorI also use the Omron Fat Loss Monitor HBF-306.  I take two measurements in the morning, one from each device and then average the  numbers.   And then I repeat the measurement in the evening, giving me four measurements per day.  I weigh in twice a day and average those two numbers as well.

Well, that’s how I track my progress when I’m actually *ahem* tracking my progress and I haven’t been regularly *AHEM* tracking my progress (or lack thereof) since Worlds.  Which brings me back to my original statement at the beginning of this entry “I haven’t been a good boy since Worlds”  *SIGH*

So.  Hello mild depression. Glad to meet you, let you introduce you to my good friend “mild frustration.”  Oh you two know each other?  I thought you might.   *SIGH*

So what to do?  Read the rest of this entry
