My Computer has Tinnitus

Tinnitus has to be up there as being ranked one of the most annoying non lethal afflictions to affect human beings. When all is silent there is but one little screachy sound within your being and it is aptly named tinnitus. It’s kind of like the sound of scratching fungernails running across a chalkboard except quieter and higher pitched. It is also reminiscent of the sound I would hear while trying to fall asleep after clubbing. Someone told me long ago that that sound was the sound of a dieing note from your hearing. Whether that is true or not I began to wear earplugs sometimes when out dancing to soften the sound of deafening beats. Loud music does damage the eardrum but whether the sound you are hearing is a pitch you will never hear again?

Week 1 Weigh in – Jessica

This is very new to me, that is the having to lose weight. My weight tended to fluctuate between 115 and 130lbs for the most part, during the whole decade of my twenties. However when I reached age 30 my weight range averaged between 125 to 145lbs. Now at age 32 my weight as of my last doctors appointment was 160lbs. OMG!

Going out the door… the Results

I went out the door on my walk and have since come back. Here is a .mov of all the pics I took while walking through the East Side of Vancouver. It’s unedited and 4.5mb’s in size. Be patient it’s awful pretty and tells a story all it’s own. This is the reason I went walking

Tomorrow’s Weight

I did it.

As many of you know I’ve been battling a sort of Pepsi addiction over the past few monthes. It has got to a point where I am drinking upwards of 12 plus cans a day. Today, however marks the first day I have not had any Pepsi. I have a feeling just cutting out the soda pop will have a positive effect on my waistline.

I joined a list of dieters this evening after getting back from my walk. Tomorrow I will be posting my weight, height, BMI and yes the dreaded measurements. What better way to lose weight than go public with it. Every week on Tuesday everyone involved will be posting their progress and tips on their respective websites. Even if you are not looking to lose weight but would like to support us please join the list. You can also read Colin D. Devroe’s original post on the Diet!

Good luck to everyone!

Going out the door…

If I go out the door will it make me feel better, make me feel something else? Anything? There is this patch in my brain called limbo. In limbo everything is churning. Ideas are dreamt there, memories and thoughts come to light there, in limbo. This is not where I want to be. I think of the phrase “Just do it” that Nike owns the rights to. However I’m not doing it. Why?

I want to write about all that is wrong. I want to scream. I want out.

What am I waiting for? A few things actually.

Grey Walking

I have wirtten about walking the line and not being able to choose what side to get off on. Today though I’m walking the line, and walking and walking because the choices just seem not to be there to step off the line. I’m going to call this Grey Walking. The weather is grey. My cat is grey. I wonder if my cat was orange if the sun would come out?

Someone emailed me about my last post being gross and disgusting. It was meant to be funny!
