Daylight Savings - I'm against it

March 14, 2011

I am not a fan of daylight savings time.  I cherish sleep, it's my favorite time of the day.  And losing 1 hour, though it doesn't seem like much, really really screws with my system.  It's like super jet lag.  I don't know why it affects me so much, I just hate it.

This morning I was on the bus and I was wondering if losing the hour affects others as much as it affects me.  That's when I noticed the bus was about half a foot away from hitting a pedestrian.  Apparently the pedestrian noticed too because she stopped walking.  The bus driver didn't seem to notice until we were through the cross walk, where he stopped, seemed to ponder whether he should apologize to the woman, and then just drove on.

So, apparently the answer is yes.  Daylight savings time is clearly evil.

Lunch was worse.  I went to the store to buy some groceries.  I got what I needed, when I went to pay, I realized I had lost my mittens.  My glorious raccoon mittens.  Frantically I searched the store, no luck.  I asked the cashiers and customer service, no luck.  All faith in humanity was lost as I realized someone had scarfed my mittens.

I called them later in the day to see if they had been turned it.  They had been!  Faith in humanity restored!

When I got to the store the line at customer service was huge.  But the guy saw me, waved and said "are you looking for raccoon mittens?"  I nodded enthusiastically.  He waved me over and passed them to me.  I thanked him a million times.  I think my raccoon hat tipped him off.

Weekly Weigh In

Down another 2 lbs this week.  Initially I was frustrated with only 2 lbs a week, but it really does add up.  Though I knew that logically all along, I'm really starting to be pleased by that.

More later, I actually feel like blogging again.

Phase 5 - Weigh In

March 6, 2011

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted.  Time kind of flew by ...
Anyway, 2lb loss this week.

I tried out that new gym that was much closer to home, it was horrible.  They didn't even have a treadmill.  This is the #1 fitness facility in the city??!? Insane.

Since then I've found a better gym downtown. 7 blocks from work.  I've been taking the bus in the -30 weather, but when it warms up I'll start walking there.
