I’ve been enjoying the weather for the past several weeks which means spending less and less time on the computer. That also means less time for blogging and less updates here as well as my other blogs. I’ve also cut back on my poker playing dramatically which takes away computer time as well. This is all a good thing.
Time has been spent golfing as much as possible and getting my bike out. Just the other day I rode 15 miles in an hour and felt great. I need to be ready to ride about 24 miles with hills in three weeks when I go up north for Mother’s Day. The plan is to ride around Hubbard Lake with Mo and kick his ass. He’s been talking a little bit too much shit and I don’t like to lose many challenges. Just ask him about our weight loss competition for last week!
I’m still using my elliptical 3-4 days a week in addition to bike rides and doing some ab workouts as well. I’m down about 15 pounds from two and a half months ago and feeling good.
Golf league started this week and I might be joining a summer bowling league with some friends that starts on May 2nd. I like to keep busy during the summers and get out as much as possible which is completely different from the cold Michigan winters.
My sleep problems are pretty much under control now. I’m on Lunesta which has been doing the trick. I tried Ambien CR and some other new drug that start with an R, but Lunesta worked the best by far. It’s amazing what a good night of sleep does for the body.
In a few days I should be able to reveal the secret I mentioned a few weeks ago. It’s been taking up a lot of my thinking and I can’t wait to get it over with and out in the open. Maybe then I’ll be able to resume a regular blogging schedule. What “regular” actually means for blogging I’m not quite sure anymore.
I’m off to a hot start with my golf this year. I’ve golfed in March for the first time in my life and I’ve already played more rounds this year than I had last year a this time in May. I shot a 37 (+2) the other night which is the 2nd best score of my life (to a 36 for +1) and I’ve had quite a few rounds in the low 40s already. I’m averaging about bogey golf so far overall.
All this…and I don’t even have my new clubs. Yes, you read that right, I’m playing the best golf of my life and I have new clubs on the way! I went through a personal club fitting and took a week and a half trying out all different types of clubs. I’ll have more on this later when the clubs actually arrive and I get a chance to see how they work for me. Should be about another week and a half.
I was glad to read that Tiger is taking a break to spend time with his father. From all the reports it doesn’t look like his dad is going to last much longer and I know if I was in his position I’d want to get as much time with my dad as I could. Golf will always be there.
In the past two weeks or so I’ve played poker once. It was a 6 person SNG on Party and I bowed out 4th if I remember correctly. I’m not missing the game and my overall attitude has been a lot better because I haven’t been playing. Poker can drain the life out of you…or at least it can for me. I’m having a lot more fun golfing, working out (and losing weight), and doing other things instead of sitting in front of a computer for 2-3 hours a night. Of course I won’t make $15,000 like I did last year, but there are more important things to enjoy. For instance…I’ve lost 15 pounds in the last two and a half months and I’m feeling better physically than I have in a couple of years.
On a personal note, I have a pretty big announcement that I’m hoping I’ll be able to make in a few days. Stay tuned…
