Yesterday Was An Ideal Day

Things worked out like how they were supposed to yesterday.

I had a good workout, also I had a great sleep.

Felt so good today, was a deep sleep with just melatonin.

Everything added up.

Going to post more tomorrow, but first batch of cameras installed, working on the next.

Fresh Start

Wow what a good workout today. Just the right balance of push and control to get a great endorphin feeling.

Been a long time since I felt like this.

After the workout, I cut my hair. My stylist, Anna, recognized me from an old haircut place I went to about a decade ago. Apparently she recognized me from running around Renton as well.

Starting To Eat Less

Not saying I am watching what I eat, I am saying I feel like I am eating less.

Need to figure out my true intake.

I think next week, I can start tracking my intake to bring down my weight.

Midnight snacking needs to stop though.

Inauguration 2021

It has come, was expecting more drama, but just a petty former president leaving.

I feel a LOT more hope with Biden then what I felt when Trump came in to office.

Thing is I was willing to give Trump a fair chance, I was willing to unite under him, but he proved to decisive for me. His score was the stock market, it did go up, but a lot of intangibles really went crashing down.

Had a good workout, hoping more to come. Next thing to work on is input. Maybe next week.

Upgrading Home Monitoring

Upgrading cameras and sensors around the home.

I would like things to be more reliable, but it would cost a lot more.

Got the first replacement IP camera, but it produces a lot of data and it is wireless. So it chews up a lot of wireless bandwidth. It may need its own AP.

Ordered some BNC ones, wired so should be OK. But need a hard drive for the system.

First Real Workout for Lifestyle 365

Wow, it was a great workout today.

Had my first one for Lifestyle 365, I got to see how fast I was going and my pulse.

Was burned out after the warm up run, but it was good.

Clean Office and Server Room

Again, it is finally workable in the two rooms.

But the living room where I moved everything in to will take much more work.

I will work on it week by week, and I should get it done slowly but at a decent pace.

Smart Light Bulbs

I got some smart light bulbs come in the other day, some tp-link kasa bulbs. Hoping they can work without the app.

They are TP-Link LB130 model. Will do a review later.

Still not sleeping right.

Intro to new workout program

Today I went in to the Lifestyle 365 program and got my initial training. Wow, it combines a lot of what this blog is about

  • Fitness/Weight Loss
  • IOT/Technology

The program combines an app(mywellness), a trainer(Carly), and tracking (via bluetooth device and mobile). You get a program from the trainer, in my case 3 different workout programs, and you need to meet those goals (accountability remember this ancient post nearly a decade ago https://www.apolonio.com/blog/?p=11) and the tech tracks your commitment which in the end is that little push I need.

Some of it is self reporting, but there are machines that record your progress.

I paid up for three months. I am committed now.

Power is back on, you know I am going to mark this part as a milestone. Because this was a record for our home, 28 hours, from 1/13 12:33AM to about 1/14 3:58AM so closer to 27 1/2, some day in the future I am going to search the blog for power outage. Writing that here so it comes up in the search results.

Not gonna lie, was looking at generators. May by one for the future.
