July 3, 2007

Weight Loss:

My weight stayed the same today. If it follows the usual pattern I will be down again tomorrow.

OK.. today's measurements:

Chest: same
Bust: -1 1/4"
Neck: same
Arms: same
Waist: - 1/2"
Hips: - 1/4"
Thigh: same
Calves: same

So 2 inches lost in the last two weeks. A total of 35 lbs lost and 25 1/4 inches gone. My body fat, according to my scale, is now 36.5% I know the scale isn't a reliable source on body fat percentages, but it is lower than it was two weeks ago by 1%. So, by the scale, my body fat has dropped 4% since I started.


Computers:


My wonderful computer has been making lots of weird noises lately, that quite frankly, terrify me. It's also been locking up on a regular basis. So last night my husband bought a new external hard drive and we spent most of the night, and into the wee hours of the morning, getting the new hard drive partitioned and figuring out how we want to separate things.

This new hard drive is 320G, which is about twice the size of our internal. So I have moved all my photo programs, photos (which totaled a whopping 19G!!), and another couple of programs over. The other partition will be strictly for backing up the whole system, which we will do tonight after we go to bed. (It will take hours..) I'm also backing up all my irreplaceable stuff (such as photos) on to DVD's so that if, by some freak accident, something happens to the new hard drive I won't lose it all.

So, just take this as a reminder. Back up ANYTHING you cannot replace on your computer's hard drive. You will not regret it!





Photography:

I got my test scores back yesterday from my first unit. There were two tests I had to send in with my photo projects. I'm proud to announce that I got a 100% on both of them! :0)


Tuesday Words of Wisdom:

When in doubt, poke it with a stick.


OK.. back to work.
