Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Day 111 - TGIF & What

I've never been much of a TGIF guy, Friday is a great day don't get me wrong; but I don't usually pine for it to get here. This week however I have been so looking forward to it. It has been a long week, of course much longer for my wife than for me. Still, it is good to have her home, have the long week of getting ready for the hospital, the surgery, the hospital stay... as I said so good to be home.

Now it is a six week haul for her to recover and get back to work. So far so good; finding out where she is most comfortable and resting as best she can. Thanks again for all of your well wishes this past week.

Exercise is on my agenda today. I last got in a good session on Monday. Now that we are back home, I need to get back to the exercise. I feel the lag in exercise too. Just a few days away from it my energy is a few notches lower than it had been. A nice affirmation I suppose in the importance of exercise.

My diet this week has been good. Eating has been more sporadic and not as disciplined in terms of eating at good intervals, but the contents have been wise. Looking forward to getting back in a solid groove on both eating and exercise.

I also am in the mood for some fun. The work day will be done soon enough, and even though things around here will below key for a while, let us have some fun. The picture up there, could it be... A few weeks ago, Day 93 I believe, I posted a picture for your pondering pleasure which we had fun with. A visual riddle if you will. So...

Any idea what it is?
Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. Is it candy, I love candy. I need candy, can I have some candy please...

  2. My vote is for a table cloth/table runner.

    Thanks Allan. Now I'm going to eat a Kit Kat, and then I'm going to blame you. :-)

  3. Hmm, yeah Allan - If I break down and eat a Snickers today, it is your fault.

    Not candy or a table cloth/table runner... good guesses though, I can see where you saw them in that pic.

  4. Bendy straws bent over a table?

  5. Nice guess, love the creativity, but no. I can't say any of these are closer or father away from the right guess than the others. Allan's may be the furthest away as this is not a picture of food. Keep on guess'n :-)

  6. I'm going with an iphone case...a pretty rainbow one.

  7. So glad things are going well for your wife & you can get back to a regular type schedule. Yes, amazing how sluggish we can feel when we don't exercise or get our normal healthy meals in. Holding get well soon thoughts for your wife!

    As for the pic, not even gonna try! :-)

  8. iphone case, good guess indeed... the closest shot at a guess yet, eben though this pic has nothing to do with a phone or a case. But nice shootin on that guess MP!

    Jody, your non guess was actually a good guess without even guessing.

  9. Looks like one of those luggage straps that help you pick out your piece of luggage from the crowd.

  10. Excellent guess Kyle... it sure does look like one of those straps; but it isn't.

    MP still has the warmest guess, not anyone is keeping score:-)

    I'll be back later if there are any more guesses I'll instantly let you know if you are getting warmer or not.

  11. You found my rainbow hair ribbon - thanks, guy!
