Hey everybody, how's it going? Today went by pretty well for me. It feels like the time is getting a little shorter each day. I think I am sleeping a little longer at night so that is speeding things up a little. Mail came today and I got some more letters so that kept me entertained for a while. Thanks for the "Get out of jail free" card, JP. It made most of the guys in the tank laugh, but some seemed confused about why that would be funny. I tried to use the card but unfortunately it didn't get me too far.
OK, I need some help with some fitness questions.
1. How many ounces are in a typical coffee mug?
2. About how many calories am I burning in here on a daily basis? I weight 214 lbs and am exercising for about 45 minutes to an hour every day to a decent sweat. I probably sleep about eight hours a day. The rest of the time is pretty idle.
3. About how many calories do you think
I am taking in each day? What is the typical inmate caloric intake assuming I am only eating what is served? I'm very concerned about gaining weight here in county jail.
I still haven't received any correspondence directly from this blog, but I am very anxious to read what everyone has to say (editor - as of today, he should have received at least two packages with comments. Probably one on Monday - 2/8 and one today - unfortunately there haven't been too many comments).
The sleep cycle here is crazy. 75% of the people are up all night and asleep all day long. It would be so easy to succumb to that pattern, but I'm not doing it. Just seems to be bass ackwards. From talking to people I have learned that the sleep pattern in the actual prison is much more normal. Although I'm still apprehensive about that entire experience, I am ready to get there and get started.
We ordered commissary again tonight. I didn't need to get nearly as much this time as last week, but I did get some extra snacks (editor - didn't you mention you only ate what is served above?), more paper, pens and envelopes.
Today was the first day that I started to think about what I would do to live and make money once I get out of here. I wish that thought could have stayed out of my mind for at least a month or so because I really want to totally reset my brain before I start evaluating and planning things. I'm not going to put any of those planning thoughts down on paper for now so hopefully those thoughts will leave me alone for awhile.
The last season of "Lost" started tonight. There was a three hour special and the first hour was devoted to a recap of the entire series. I watched it and hope that I could become interested in it, but I'm just not sure. It seems a little too weird, but I'm going to try and grasp the whole thing. I also watched part of "The Biggest Loser". I really like that show, but there seem to be too many commercials.
Just met a new guy in here. His crime is much different than mine, but his circumstances surrounding probation and his current incarceration are very similar to mine. Anyway, he gave me a printout of three junk emails to read and they were hilarious. Funny how those junk emails are annoying in the real world yet so entertaining in here. Basically, what I am trying to say is, send me your junk emails to read. I will make sure they are enjoyed as originally intended.
Well, that's it for now..
