I have created another blog to give updates on my writing efforts. You can find it here.

Simplifying life, on-line and otherwise

I'm going to try and make things easier on myself on-line. I spend a lot of time just clicking about doing pointless things. I want to cut down on that. To that end I'm going to cut the number of games I play on Facebook down to just one (Lexulous) and reduce the number of blogs on my CSS feeds. Less distracting Facebookian clickage and less random blabber going into my eyeballs on Google Reader may make my life easier to navigate. Maybe at some point I will actually use the extra time to do the things I want to do in life: spend time with the family, work on my writing, get on the treadmill.

The treadmill is very near and dear to my heart these days. Darlene and I have joined Weight Watchers and I want to use the treadmill to help me get some exercise in addition to the point counting. I do some low/medium-impact walking at work, but if I can do more hardcore stuff on the treadmill at home that would help even more, especially on those days I have a little too much to eat.

I'll be posting updates on Facebook and here each week after my weigh-ins. My starting weight was 229.2. Last weekend I weighed in at 224.8, down 4.4 pounds in my first week. Go me! Wish me luck--support your local blogger, in the real world as well as on-line!
