Web site Update

I just spent the last three hours formatting pages on my web site. I really didn't make any changes to the content, except for adding another item to the humor section. I spent more time adjusting table column widths and fonts than anything else.

The perfectionist in me is working overtime. Or I guess I should say I am being very anal. The slightest little thing would have me "fine tuning" until I got it right.

I'll blame it on being tired.

As I was re-reading this entry and I noticed many "trigger words." I have to watch out so I don't go manic. I should have realized it sooner, when I spent all that time "tweaking" the pages.

I can already sense the thoughts racing through my head. I need to go to bed before I can't get to sleep and I don't feel like taking any sleeping pills tonight.

Trying a new client

I'm trying out the LochJournal Client. It has a lot more features/settings than the client I was using up to now. Half of them I'm trying to figure out what they do. It won't take me long to discover all the tricks :)

I just started my trial with the Slim Fast diet. I just had lunch, a lovely chocolate shake and an apple. Actually, the shake was quite tasty. I have put on more weight than I care for and I would like to see myself back to a healthier weight. By cutting out the junk food and fast food, and eating fruits and vegtables instead, I should stop gaining weight. I wanted to use the Slim Fast to help me drop my weight without going into starvation mode.

The biggest problem I have is with control. I Love Food! I've lost weight before and was able to keep it off. I don't go crazy with the deit plans. It's when I eat healthy that I'm able to maintain a comfortable weight. I feel better too. For the past year, I have just said, "Oh well, I'm already overweight, what does it matter?" Now my mind is clearer and I am once again thinking about my physical health as well as my mental health.

While I was in the Navy, I ended up loosing around twenty pounds, just by cutting out the snacks. I was down to 165 pounds. I won't say what my current weight is. I will say it is a lot more. :) My ideal weight now is 185 to 190. That is my ultimate goal.

No Spell Check

Ahhh! This client doesn't have a spell check feature. Hmmm, I dunno. I'm a terrible speller and I'm notorious for my typos. Well, I won't remove this one yet. I still like the added features. I'll keep looking.

Ho Hum

I sitting here trying to figure out what to do. I have already played with different LiveJournal clients and I think I'll stick with the Semagic client for now. At least it has a spell check and it actually detects my music from MusicMatch Jukebox.

My scanner is up and running, so I don't need to work with that. I spent hours last night "tweaking" my web site. I have already planned out which classes I'll take in the Fall and my registration appointment date isn't until July 12th.

I guess I'll just listen to some music.

Blocking Off The Street

Tomorrow the city will block off the street at 6:00 AM in front my apartment to use as part of the staging area for the parade. It is usually opened back up around Noon, so that's not too bad. I will be attending a B.B.Q. here at the apartment complex tomorrow, but I have no plans to see the fireworks.

I just finished doing my laundry. I thought I should have something to wear if I'm going to the BBQ tomorrow. I always feel so much better after the laundry is all folded and put away.

I need to buy a swimsuit. My sister is having a birthday party for my grandmother's 80th birthday. My sister has a pool at her house and we are all invited to swim. As much as I love to swim, I haven't gone swimming in a long time because I'm embarrassed about my weight. Since this party will be just family and friends, I have decided to get a new suit and enjoy myself this time.
