A bunch of useless crap
Published on October 14, 2012 By MasonM In Blogging

Am in Marianna Florida this weekend. I delivered my last stop on Thursday at the Naval base in Panama City then came up here to get a reasonably priced hotel room. There was a bike rally in Panama City Beach this weekend and even if I could have found a room down there it would have cost an arm and a leg.

Friday dispatch called me with a reload about an hour from here, in Alabama. By the time I got within 3 miles of the place they called me let me know the load had canceled. Oh well, back here again. I really wanted to take the weekend off anyway.

I've pretty well loafed all weekend. I did suffer a loss on Friday when I dropped my Asus Transformer tablet and killed the screen. Damn. I really like having my tablet. I picked up a Google Nexus 7 on Saturday. Not really a replacement, but not bad. The video quality is excellent and the smaller size can be handy at times, I just wish they had included a micro SD card slot. I'll pick up a new 10" tablet when I can afford it.

I'll be checking out of the hotel shortly and going over to the truck stop as I really can't afford another night in the hotel. That's cool as I need to do some laundry anyway and I can do that there.

On the weight loss front, I have, as of last weekend, dropped a tad over 33 lbs and the new, smaller size jeans are getting a little loose on me. Not quite enough to go down another size but it probably won't be long. I've been getting in at least five miles of walking every day and even some jogging here and there. Mostly it's just keeping track of calories and eating healthier. That last bit can be challenging on the road, but can be done. I expect to be under 200 lbs within another week.

That's about it for now. Time to pack up and get checked out.
