  • Hot office guy - aka Trouble Making Captain - lost his scholarship. He will not be spending 3 years in Uraguay. He called the administrators to tell them what has happened b/c he has integrity and didn't want to lie to them or hide it or whatever - plus with no hope of promotion, he won't be retained by the army for the time period he has to commit upon completion of the program. I think he was required to commit 9 years to the Army following completion of his master's degree and because he'd be "due" for his next promotion before that 9 years is up and he can't get promoted b/c of the permanent status of his letter of reprimand, it was senseless for him to even go knowing he couldn't fulfill his end of the deal. So, they called him a few days ago and recinded his scholarship. He will now be working upstairs in another directorate. I'm gonna miss him. He'll still be around and his girlfriend works on this floor, so we'll probably still see him occasionally, but I don't know how long it'll be before they move him to another post to continue his career until they boot him. And I think once he's promoted to major and holds that for the predetermined length of time, he'll just get out. I don't think he has any chance of reaching retirement given the length of time he can serve as a major before he becomes non-retained due to failure to progress. In the army, you can't get comfy and just hold a certain rank until you die... you have to keep moving up or they boot you out.

    So, bummed for him. The army screwed itself over on this one. They had an amazing officer who would have done great things for the organization, but they tossed him out... oh well. Their loss.

    • Now... about me... yes, I know, it's always about me. What can I say... it's my effing journal! lol

      Weight is still the same... *sigh*

      Getting mentally charged to go out for a 4 miler here soon. I would ideally like to run across government bridge, but the bike trail on the other side is flooded, so unless I wanna turn this run into a biathalon, that won't work, and I don't really want to run through downtown Davenport. Nor do I want to run through downtown Rock Island... but, there is a bike trail that runs along the river in Rock Island atop a levee that is not flooded, so maybe I'll go that way.

      Foot is feeling very well today. I'm impressed by the Princess of Pain every time I see her.

      TMI: Whole30 is working - gut clean out - right on schedule. I have found that since moving to Primal, I don't have daily gut movement like "they" say you're supposed to. I usually have one or two really good clean outs a week, and that's fine by me. /TMI

      Well, it's 12:30 and we're off at 3:31 thanks to the CG's ability to give the civilians a whole 59 minutes off of work... so I better get moving or I'll lose my window.

      • While my foot started to bother me toward the very end of my run and is bothering me now, that run was awesome! Strong, fast, light! I wish all training runs were that good!

        I finished 4 miles in exactly 42 minutes according to the Garmin. Not sure how I managed to come in at EXACTLY 42 minutes and zero seconds, but I did. That's a 10:30 per mile pace, or 5.7 mph.

        But now my foot is screaming! Right behind the second toe. The next two days will be rather relaxed and I can be barefoot/off my feet most the day. Hopefully that'll allow for enough time for the inflammation to go down and things to simmer before I head out for 5 miles on Saturday. My first "long" run of the training program.

        • as for the TMI mentioned above........... I also have only 2-3 gut emptiers per week when I stay strictly paleo/zero carb. I like it that way after going 6 years with an average of 5 per morning.

          sorry the hear the outcome for the hot guy. I think they are wrong in what they did - but obviously my opinion wasn't factored in to their decision. :/ go figure.

          good job on the run! You're blazing!
          1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
          2. Eat to heal
          3. Move to live
          4. Embrace today
          5. Live with intention
          6. Respect my body
          7. Cultivate joy
          8. Find my passion
          9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                          • Oh and both of the fish pictured had bellies FULL of eggs. If I was a true Primal, I would have kept them too. But I'm not...

                            • Ouch! Keep some aloe gel in the fridge

                              Coconut oil sinks in pretty quickly so I think you'll probably just have to use a lot to keep the skin moisturized.

                              • Sunburn is reaching the itchy stage...

                                Dairy consumption is wrecking my life... ok, not that severely, but it's definitely annoying. I have zips popping up on my face and chest, my nose is dry stuffy, and my eyes are developing more goop when I sleep than usual - usual being ZERO goop. I'm going to make chicken cordon bleu casserole this week and then it's off to No Dairy Land again.

                                Despite my weekend of poor food choices, I did not gain any weight. Still at 177/178. This I find to be surprising, but welcomed at the same time.

                                Foot: I have no idea what's going on with this thing. One moment it hurts like a son of a bitch, and then the next it's fine. Brad is picking up both the kids tonight so I'm tempted to make an appointment with the Princess of Pain to have her work on it again. I'd even be willing to burn up some sick leave for this appointment. I think I might make it for 4 pm and leave at 3:45 or so today. This is ridiculous. I know it's nerve related by how it feels. And Dr. Lake has told me time and time again that I can run through nerve pain b/c the foot itself is not injured, so I'll pop some ibuprofen, head out for my run this afternoon, and then see her later, I think. Hopefully she has an opening. Nope... no openings today. Had to take the 12:00 opening tomorrow. I have to be careful how often I see her. I only have 20 visits per year that are covered by insurance.

                                CPT Hot Stuff has decided he is going to get out of the army. He's talking to a retired general today or tomorrow about taking a job with his consulting firm. When CPT Hot Stuff drops his "I'm getting the fug out" paperwork depends on whether or not the general will hire him and when he would start. Such a bummer. I can't believe that it came to this.

                                New boss starts tomorrow. They're kind of working a transition right now, but b/c the new boss is not yet the commander, there is a lot of stuff he cannot do - like command. CPT Hot Stuff has kind of been his escort for this transition period - it's a good job for him. He's a very personable, friendly, professional guy. So, yeah, life will get interesting tomorrow... not sure what working for the new boss will be like and it's kind of got me anxious. COL H has always been my boss and now he's leaving - and most likely I'll never see him again... I know that I had some issues with COL H, but he's a pretty laid back guy - comfortable, easy to get along with, doesn't ask for much... I hope the new guy is just as easy.
