Last Wednesday, I hopped into a bod pod to see what my body fat percentage and lean mass percentage numbers were. Sonthe took pics, and I just now received the files from her. Thank you, Sonthe. Here are my pics from last Wednesday's Bod Pod test. :-) Enjoy […] Read More


Bitter Sweet Saturday

Dear reader, today is a bitter sweet Saturday for me. Today is the last home game for my college football team, the Alabama Crimson Tide. Will and I are going to the game, although the game is a guaranteed win for Bama. It's always fun just to be in Tuscaloosa on game day. Every game […] Read More


Bod Pod Test Results – My body fat percentage

Wednesday, I went to the Lakeshore Foundation here in Birmingham, Alabama, and found out my body fat percentage and weight numbers. They used a fancy machine, called a Bod Pod for the testing. The Bod Pod (in the picture below) uses air displacement to measure lean body mass and fat mass. I had to remove all of […] Read More

Rough Monday

I had a horrible Monday. To make a long story short, I skipped all of my medications (blood pressure, multi-vitamin, fish oil, anti-depressant, and thyroid meds) and didn't sleep using my CPAP machine (it's used for sleep apnea). In a rush to get out of town for the night, I thought I would be okay […] Read More


I went to Tuscaloosa, Alabama this weekend to watch the Alabama Crimson Tide kick their own ass against their opponent, the Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers.  (Thankfully I didn't buy tickets to the game.) The short story is we lost that game because we couldn't kick field goals. Aside from the missed field goals, the […] Read More

Busy Day

Today has been insanely busy! (This is a good thing.) Between work and doing some data entry work for this Saturday's Vulcan 10k race, I'm worn out. I'm also thankful for the work. :-) My workout yesterday was great! At Anytime Fitness I warmed up for 10 minutes on the elliptical, then worked out my […] Read More
