Taking It To The Next Level

Oh, I forgot to mention that today I finally bought the mini-stepper I’d been wanting to buy… didn’t spend money at the renfest, so spent it at Sports Authority instead… I’ve reached a plateau in my weight loss regime. The dietary changes I’ve made to my eating habits just aren’t cutting it anymore. Although I’ve lost a significant amount of weight, I’ve been stuck at the same weight for about 2 months now. It’s time I start the exercise part or I fear this’ll be as much as I’ll loose. We can’t stop now!

My house is extremely small – I bump my knees on the coffee table almost every time I get up from the couch! – so, I can’t have any large piece of exercise Read the rest of this entry »

The Jazz Singer

A couple friends and I went out to a small, out-of-the-way coffee house Friday night.  A friend had heard there was a good jazz singer performing there.  It was really small and we almost didn’t have a place to sit.  They brought us some chairs from behind the counter.  There were maybe 20-22 people there.  It was just the singer and a keyboardist.  The singer was pretty good, but the keyboardist didn’t have a big repertoire, so for a couple songs the singer had him play a similar song to what he wanted to sing, or he just sang a cappella.  My friends thought he sang nice, but they were miffed that about 95% of his songs were in Spanish.  He would comment how sad, or romantic, a song was but we had no clue since we didn’t understand a word.  Oh well, still sounded nice.  We’ll have to check out what other performers they have there on other nights.  It was a nice cozy setting.  And a nice Friday night distraction… get my mind off… well, you know who (sorry, it didn’t work completely.  His songs were still playing in my head!  Ha!)
