iPods just keep getting better

Posted in changes, music on 5 September 07 by mikevc

So, Mr. Jobs has released the latest round of iPods. And as usual,ipodnano-green-hero.jpg I am reduced to aipodtouch-hero.jpg Chris Farleyesqe “Those are awesome!” as I read about them. My first inclination was to sell my iPod and scrounge together some cash on half.com by selling some books to get a new one. But, I have a better plan. As my previous post indicated, I want to get serious about getting fit (or comfortably into t-shirts). As such, I am going to hold one of these new iPods up as a reward for myself for following my lifestyle changes from today to my 35th birthday (10/25).

I am more confident than I have ever been that I will stick with these changes. So, the only decision is which one to get. I am split between one of the new nanos or the iPod touch. Let me know your opinion.

Gotta Make Some Changes

Posted in bad decisions, changes on 31 July 07 by mikevc

In light of my lack of healthy decisions over the past eight years or so, I have come to the conclusion that I have to make some serious changes in action more than just words.  As such, I am laying out serious (and some less serious) changes I will be making at my 43Things account.  The reason for this is nine or ten years ago I was running five miles a day and paying close attention to my diet.  Tonight, I found myself getting short of breath as I crawled around my car cleaning out fast food trash.   That pretty much sums up what I need to fix and why I need to make serious changes.  And, I can’t say I will do it tomorrow anymore, I have been saying that for eight years.  So, I finally come to the realization that today is tomorrow (is today or something like that).  Anyway, I move forward on this.
