If Only My Bowling Score Was This High!

Posted on Tuesday, April 28, 2009 in Family

Met with Dr. Calusic today to review my bloodwork.  Cholesterol was 231.  That’s within a strike of my all time bowling score!  Triglycerides 158.  My good cholesterol was solid, but those other 2 make me borderline high. 

He prescribed a little brown bill to take every day.  Need to lose more weight and excercise 45 minutes a day 6 days a week.   But the killer is…no white flour, no white sugar!  Come on!  Those 2 are like cigarettes and alcohol to me…24 hours without either will have me on the kitchen floor in the fetal position crying for Little Debbie.

Doc is looking for me to have that Triglyceride number BELOW 100 in 3 months!  The Ephrata McDonalds will have me declared a missing person!

I’ve got 90 days to hit my numbers.  P-90X again?  Man I don’t know!

Sunday Basketball

Posted on Sunday, April 19, 2009 in Uncategorized

As you look back on your life what regrets do you.  Of course you immediately think of career path and relationship choices.  But go micro for a second.  What small things would you change?

I’m freshly showered from 90+ minutes of basketball at the Ephrata Rec.   It’s pickup every Sunday for guys 30 to 50.  Because of church obligations I can’t make it every week, but when I do play I absolutley love it.

At 47 I’m heartsick over the fact that I didn’t play hoops for many years.  Between 18 and 40 I rarely played, save for one year when we had a team at WLAN.  Now, playing pick up or league ball for the last 7 years, I wish I had played during my 20’s and 30’s, to see what a lighter Weems with younger muscles and organs could have done.  Nonetheless,  it is an awesome workout, supreme calorie burn and just a blast, the highlight my week from a selfish, personal point of view.

So, what playful regret do YOU have?
