I just got this free iPhone app to use with my Blog. So even though before I was always online reading blogs, now I will be able to write.
Update on what's going on:
I am currently up in Michigan attending a 1 month course for a new MOS. I didn't really want it, but I need to have it for my full time job. Lame.
My wife and I have bought 2 Pygmy goats, their names are Dave (he is very friendly an is like a puppy, always wants to be with us) and then we bought Opti (short for Optimus Prime). Opti is a real bitch, I would rather of just kept Dave but goats get lonely. We got the goats to eat all the poison-ivy around our house.
We are also planning on getting a few Rhode Island Red hens come spring time. We can use them to get fresh eggs, and use their manure for the garden. Another plus is that Chickens eat ticks, and seeing as we are hippies who live in the woods... Ticks are a problem.
I have been working out almost every single day while I was here, i showed up to this school and failed the army height and weight (I have always been taped, but never even been remotely close to failing). My taping had me at 1 1/2 inches shorter than I usually am, and 4 inches wider than the size of my ACUs are made for. It was blatantly wrong, and they said I was 26% body fat... Crazy. So I worked my ass off every day, losing about 8 lbs so far, and when I got taped for phase 2 (after recieving a "marginal" on my 1059 for phase 1), I grew 2 1/2 inches in height, lost 2 1/2 inches on my waist, grew 1 1/2 inches on my neck. How the hell did that happen in 1 1/2 weeks, and that is pretty much physically impossible. Anyways I passed. They use this odd tape I have never seen, it had a spring on it that seemed to act in some strange way to add alot of inches on EVERYONE.
While I have been here I have been eating alot of vegetables, almost no meat, except when I have gone out to eat at local restaurants. My new favorite snack is triscuits with hummus, yumm....
When I get home I want to continue eating less meat and work on eating more fish in my diet. (I make a mean plank salmon, ask the wife)
Last thing, I can't wait for summer so I can get back on the Harley... Last summer was so wet it was hard to ride as much as I wanted.
Well I'll write again later.
BTW: My phase 1 average was in the top 20% and I would of been on the commadants list if it wasn't for that super innacurate tape test.
