Glanced over the past few entries and realized that nearly a whole year's worth of entries have spanned less than a page in my LJ.  Which means, I should probably post an update as to what I've been up to lately.... which, as it turns out, is quite a bit.

Over the past year, I've managed to drop some 30 pounds, mainly through personal training.  That in turn has helped me pass the AF fitness test for two years in a row, with my 1.5 mile run time now down to 13:15.  My goal now is to keep that run time down, though this past week has been somewhat tough because my right quad has been hurting to where stressing it by doing stuff like weighted lunges has caused me to temporarily limp.  It's been slowly getting better, but that's also meant lightening up on the exercises a bit.

A couple months or so ago, I also learned that I got selected for promotion to O-5 in the Guard.  For those of you keeping track, that's going from a Major to a Lt Colonel.  I'll formally pin on the rank in February.

Another potentially big move is in the works for me job-wise.  I won't be leaving the island, but I could be taking an IT-related position (haven't said anything formally yet until the paperwork actually goes through).  Right now I'm waiting for the formal notification from the AF Personnel Center, which might be a few weeks owing to the holidays.  But it's a move I'm 95 to 99 percent sure I'll probably make.  Not that I hate what I'm doing now... it's basically a promotion opportunity that could create more options, careerwise.... especially if Congress keeps passing piecemeal funding resolutions without actually agreeing on a formal budget. :P

This New Year's Eve marks 10 years since Lani adopted me.  It's hard to believe it's been that long already, but I for one am grateful that she chose me to be her companion when she did.  :)

Oh, and I did get my SWAT Kats swag in the mail.  Haven't had time to go through it closely yet though.
