Well, someone has been slacking on his blog posting as of late. And by someone, I mean me. I’ve been to the gym three times (including today) since last Thursday’s weigh-in, but I’ve spaced on writing my blog post each … …but wait, there’s more! »

Officially on vacation now, so I figured there’s no point in going all the way down to work to use the gym there. There’s one only a few kilometers away from home, so I went to that one this morning … …but wait, there’s more! »
