I'm not sure if you know, but Anna and I love TV.  It's kinda our way of relaxing.  One of the shows we like to watch is Lost.  But we couldn't watch it last year, since we were living at my dad's house with Dish Network (and they were having a contract dispute with the local ABC affiliate).  So, imagine our joy when we found out that Netflix had Season 5 (the season we missed last year) on Instant Queue (we can watch it on our TV without having to buy the season.  Sweet!).  And now, we've been having a good time watching the episodes in a buffet fashion: we watched 7 episodes yesterday and are on our third one today--probably watching 4 total.  Nothing too much to do with my journey, but I'm glad that we "discovered" it!

Also, as you'll see below, I've been able to do 2 of my work gym workouts so far.  That's because Anna went in to work on Saturday (the one day out of the year she has to work on a weekend).  So, I went into work as well.  I put in an extra 6 hours of work, and then I decided to get one of my workouts in early.  I'm so glad I did!

Up to Monday:
2- 15 minute sessions on the Elliptical
2- 20 minute sessions on the Treadmill (2.02 miles; 2.04 miles)

I live in a cable free zone. It drives my BF crazy! Good thing there are TVs in the gym, so if he really wants to watch something he goes and works out at the same time.

Great job on the workouts. Right now I am so focused on Phase I of the SBD I can't even think about it. Although I did walk in the mall today when we went to the market.

I would love it if you shared some of you SBD recipes. You can email me at

Thanks Beej!!!

Beej, while I am not a TV watcher, I do understand what you mean. The computer is that for me. Even though I am on one all day at work, what I do at home is much different than what I do at work. My wife just laughs when I say that, as she is a TV person.

Netflix is great, btw!

It's good to see you made the most of your time Saturday. You're doing great so far!
