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 400-401: Hock-A-Post

 Time is so short this morning that I am going to have to hock up a quick post and put it out there. Hope it sticks and is worth your time today...

Great workout on Saturday. Hit the YMCA, mangled the weight room, tortured the elliptical. And I hit the assisted-chin/dip machine. Man that machine wore me out. Which is just why I am going back for more tonight.

School, this the final week of high school for 3 of our 4 high school'ers. This coming Saturday the Senior graduates; just less than three months and she is off to college. A year'ish from now our Junior graduates..., two from now the Sophomore..., three from now the Freshman. Five from now were are flat broke and selling plasma so we can eat off of the dollar menu.

Nachos, I can safely report that I ate no nachos this weekend. Although we do have a cat named Nacho, and I did pet him, so call me guilty!

Saw a snipet of a tv show this weekend where the menu included chocolate covered bacon, If ever I was to get married again it would be to a piece of chocolate covered bacon.

If I could read your mind, what would I be reading right now?

My wife got herself a heck of a sunburn yesterday while we were watching our son play soccer. And he lost 6-1, doesn't seem right mom goes out there, gets burned while watching his team get burned. Should be a sunburn back guarantee with the price of admission.

My stomach just growled, I am ignoring it. Probably just my heart moving stuff around for the additional fortitude I'll be moving in. Ah, growled again; better hurry up and get that fortitude!

I followed many tweets about FitBloggin'11 which took place this past weekend. Sounds like a great time, need to give that consideration for next year. That link there goes to the sites page of links to posts from those who attended and reviewed their experience. Some great reading there.

Ok, that is what I have to share today.
What about you, what can you hock-up and share with me from your weekend?

I'll resume the leadership traits tomorrow...

Have a Great Monday!

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. I am still waking up so I don't have too much to share this morning. All I can say is that I hope it will be a good day to everyone. Wishing you a good day, Patrick.:)

  2. Ah you crack me up! My son graduated Saturday and I thought of you this weekend, wondering when you had your own festivities. I am glad it's over but still lots of grad parties here, including our own.

  3. I was a fitbloggin party crasher (arrived after it was over) but glad I got to be a little part of it. It was really great and I look forward to going next year and actually being there for the whole thing, hope to see you there too.

    Hmmmm reading my mind right now, it's thinking about food but then it is close to lunch time :)

  4. Poor Nacho cat. :)
    No wonder the elliptical did not work for me this morning but I am glad you tortured it well. I really don't like that machine.
    My weekend was glorious - a strenuous hike in Yosemite, then fast drive to Palo Alto for a very good George Bernard Shaw play. Now I am tired and ready for another weekend.

  5. Yuck! A chocolate covered bacon - a perfect way to ruin perfectly good chocolate and bacon. That's what you'd read at that particular moment.

    Loved this post, so funny and positive. Perfect for Monday or, when I think of it, any other day. Thanks for the laugh :)

  6. If you could read my mind (after reading about your desire in a next wife) you would have read "you're such a goofball!"

    I had a good weekend too--two 12 mile bike rides and 45 minutes on the strength machines at the gym. Yay me.

  7. Hey Hot Sauce Honcho, Did you see what Joy Bauer had to say about hot sauce and dieting on the Today Show last week? I was surprised. Here's the link:

  8. No cheating - love that cat -

  9. This was a long weekend in Canada, so I was far from blogland. That said, I made an important announcement that now has me chasing down courage. :)

  10. Fitbloggin totally rocked...and it was all the people.
    the chats
    the hugs
    please to come next year?

  11. You'd be reading "Hmmm...chocolate covered bacon doesn't sound too bad."

    I moved this weekend. Sucked. Still no electricity. Sucks worse. Ta da!
