Parts for the ride

Got me a set of these last night
From this guy
If he keeps this up I'll own most of his parts.
The worst part was I ran in to him at SAMS club too, but a least his better half was with him so it didn't make it to bad.
All I have to do now is figure out the bars for the Rig and the bikes are finished.
Then I just have to finish the plan for me.
See yaaaaaaaaaa

Power days

Couple of good days on the bike. A couple of stops to stretch out the legs but all in all the training is coming along well. 216lbs was what the scale read yesterday, that's 19 1/2 down. so I am happy about that. I can now see the goal is reachable and my endurance is starting to come around. 190 by race time? That's the goal and I'm not playing around this year.
Well got to get back to work.
See Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

The sickness has landed

In our house when the sickness comes it comes in full force. For the last week it has run like a train, the cough is the worst because it just won't go away.
I skipped the swap today, I really wanted to go but we have been on a tight budget since we found out Erica's job is going on hold till next fall. I didn't really need anything anyway so it wasn't to bad. A few days ago my Mom said my Dad found a snowblower for us, found as in as "free"? I guess someone in their neighborhood couldn't get it to start and worked on it but then gave up and tossed it when they got a new one. So he worked on it for a couple day and then gave up, so it was my turn. Stopped over yesterday to take a look at it, plugged in the electric start and it just cranked , no fire but you could hear it try. I tinkered for awhile and then looked into the on/off switch, turned the switch back a quarter of a turn, hit the electric start and low and behold the beast comes to life and runs like a champ. I need to replace one of the rubber snow blades but it works great. So for $30.00 in parts(that I got from Ace today)I never have to shovel again(lets hope).
As i sit here Erica's at work and Tess is tearing apart the front room with all her toys. I'm going to try to get on the bike tonight after Tess goes to bed to see if I can force this shit out of my body. I tried to start the training last Saturday but I really only got about 30 min before I had to get off with a coughing fit. Well lets hope tonight goes better.
Got to go
See Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Loooooooooooooong weekend

What a great long weekend. Got to spend a lot of time with Tess and Erica and get a lot of stuff we have been putting off done. We decided to switch bedrooms with Tess as she has a lot more stuff then we do, so she gets the bigger bedroom. That took most of the weekend as we didn’t rush it, just took our time getting most of it done.
I also got everything set up for the training and the diet plan. The training plan and dungeon are set and ready to go for tomorrow, the start of the secret training plan. As the diet goes, that started today and as I’ve been on this one before. I really don’t mind it, the food is good and sometimes it’s too much, as it seems I’m always eating (like right now, PB and J on a whole grain bagel).
The rest of life is just on auto pilot right now, work is slow so I’m trying to get everything caught up and ready for the busy time of year. Erica is looking for a new job right now because Target on 124th is closing for nine months to do a tear down and rebuild. She will be returning after the rebuild but she really does not want to travel to a new store for that amount of time unless she really has to.
Well that’s about all for now.
See Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
