Fatblogging: no weight listed

So, I’ve decided to jump on the fatblogging bandwagon. I started a diet as part of my new year’s resolution, same as millions of others did.

Today’s victories:

  • Even though I slept through my alarm (which means that I didn’t eat breakfast at home) I overcame the desire to stop at Burger King for a croissant breakfast with extra hash brown. Instead, I ate a protein bar at my desk.
  • I drank 4 bottles of water (which is great for someone who used to get along without a single one all day)


  • I still can’t get properly motivated to increase my activity significantly.
  • After dinner, I had a tremendous urge to eat even though I know I wasn’t hungry. (I hate being a stress eater.)

Wish me luck.

NASA Parkway bypass is ahead of schedule

NASA Parkway bypass stays ahead of schedule
Project could be finished by end of 2008, say TxDOT officials

— reported by the Houston Chronicle

Work on the NASA Parkway bypass project is ahead of schedule and the road is on pace to be open by the end of 2008.

The 3.4-mile stretch will be a four-lane divided highway that runs through a tract just south of Magnolia Avenue in Webster.

It will go toward Texas 3 and curve northward to intersect NASA Parkway at Sarah Deel near Nassau Bay, connecting with the parkway at the Johnson Space Center.


Don’t forget, I-45 South is going to be closed this weekend starting at Bay Area Blvd.
