BFL Journal C2W5D2

Thoughts: I am quite annoyed. Somehow, my photo gallery at my blog site got messed up and two of my albums–Challenge 2 and The Great Creatine Experiment–became corrupted and were no longer accessible via my Gallery PHP script. Grr… I installed another album script called Coppermine, but I’m not too crazy about either one at the moment. I uploaded my C2 photos again to the first gallery at http://maggiewang.com/photos as well as the new one at http://maggiewang.com/pictures
. I’m just peeved because I had to rename the album in the “Photos” link, which means that the links I posted this weekend to my photos won’t work anymore. 👿

I still don’t know what happened to the Gallery script, unless my webhost had some issues with my server and restored from an older back up without warning me. All in all, Coppermine might be easier to deal with since it is database-driven while Gallery uses some stupid system of locked files to track permissions and associations. The only problem with CM is that it doesn’t let you re-order your photos once they are uploaded. There’s a hack available to add this functionality, but it looks like it will take the better part of an hour or two to implement. I’m not sure that it’s worth the trouble.

My Handspring Visor PDA’s batteries died yesterday, too, which really capped off a bad technology day for me. I didn’t have any spare AAA’s around either, just a handful of depleted rechargeables! Fortunately, I’d hotsynced my data just 2 days earlier, so I didn’t lose too much data–just 2 days of food and exercise logs–unlike the last time this happened when I was out 7 days of information.

It’s time for me to change up my exercises, but I haven’t had time to sit down and plan my new sets yet. I’ll get that done tonight when I can refer to my handy-dandy Supervixen book as well as the BFL exercise pages. I’m keeping the squats, though. I wuv them, even though I’m still getting those weird headaches from them.

The Awful Truth:
1. 1/2 c. shredded wheat and 1/4 c. raisins as an evening snack. I swear I don’t need candy anymore, but cereal is my fatal weakness. It doesn’t even have to be kiddie cereal with sugar…just any kind of grainy stuff in a plastic-lined cardboard box.

1. Still 100% on workout attendance!
2. Haven’t experienced any kind of freak out yet, even after 4 months on BFL.
3. Did my extra cardio in the morning so I can’t skip out on it again when I get home from work. 😉

2. Finish and scan commission piece.
