One fat geek's attempt to regenerate into a not-so-fat geek by watching the entirety of Doctor Who while walking on a treadmill

Today has been a pretty satisfying day. I got to sleep an hour later than usual, and still was able to do a boatload of pushups and put in my 4+ miles on the treadmill. At work I battled a really interesting software problem, and finally conquered it right at the end of my day. I did a Facebook Live video to promote upcoming cabaret at the Orlando Fringe Festival, and a spent a chunk of time this evening practicing clarinet and making some real progress. As I say, it's been a satisfying day.

And, of course, I watched the first episode of Doctor Who with Martha Jones as a companion. So let's talk about that.

Guess what I've got, Donna? Pockets.

Today was Christmas again. I get to celebrate with the Doctor about every two weeks from now through July. Aside from that, it's been a busy day. My son had a dentist appointment, I had a pile of work plus a hotfix software release, I practiced my clarinet, I staged my home office for some Facebook Live videos to promote my upcoming show in the Orlando Fringe Festival, and I went out for my usual Thursday singing session. I'd say that makes a pretty good day.

But let's get back to Christmas, and the very awesome Donna Noble.

Farewell, Rose Tyler (Finally)

Farewell, Rose Tyler (Finally)

Sometimes life comes up with amazing little synchronicities, perfect little coincidences that come out of nowhere and make you smile. This morning, after doing 130 pushups (holy crap!) and then walking over four miles on the treadmill, I arrived at Rose Tyler's big emotional departure. She walked out onto the beach at Bad Wolf Bay in Norway, the Doctor appeared, and then... the DVD glitched and hung up. I tried to take the disc out and clean whatever smudge was causing the problem, but my sweaty hands only made it worse. So that's how I said goodbye to the Sainted Rose today, by shrugging and thinking, "Ah, well, I remember how it ended. Goodbye."


How it should have ended...

Fingers On Lips!

I am so tired right now. I've been awake since 4:30am. At 5:45am I finally gave up, got out of bed, and did 114 pushups before hitting the treadmill. That just seems surreal. I can't go to bed quite yet, I've got a software release to do in about ninety minutes. So in the meantime let's talk Doctor Who.

It Eats You, Starting With Your Bottom

So, the big thing today: I actually did 100 pushups this morning!! I absolutely did not expect to be able to do it, but there it is. When I started the 100 Pushups program on February 20th I could do a grand total of three. Forty five days later, and I hit my goal. How cool is that? I have definitely seen a change in my upper body. I am very, very happy with this progress.

I also watched a really good episode of Doctor Who this morning, so let's talk about that.

Yeah, sorry, I just couldn't bring myself to get out of bed early this morning and hit the treadmill.

This morning when I started my scheduled pushup program, I knew there was no way I would hit the targets. It was a flatly ridiculous notion that I could do 88 pushups. And then... I did 88 pushups! So that was a nice way to start my day. Unfortunately, I got started on that so late that I had to put off my treadmill time until almost 9pm.

But I got it done, so let's talk about it.
