Spending too much time on the computer

I was feeling guilty about spending too much time on the computer and not being motivated to exercise more. Here is my latest and greatest attempt to put in my time on that treadmill.
By rigging up a board over the treadmill arms to put the keyboard and mouse on, I am able to play on the computer and burn calories at the same time. The time passes quickly and I really enjoy my time on the treadmill now.

State Champion

Final tournament of the MSKC and Ben has successfully defended his title as Overall Underbelt State Champion. He was first in his division in forms and sparring and second in weapons for the year. At this last tournament he brought home a first in forms and second in weapons and sparring (DQ'd). Another banner year!

Trophy Room

We have now transformed this room into the trophy room. There are still some championship belts, poster and belt promotion certificates to find homes for but most of Ben's awards are situated. There are over 100 awards-trophies, plaques, belts and medals and probably another 20 before the year is done if he keeps up the good work. I am so thrilled with the metal shelving we found at Ikea. That had to be the most difficult of tasks to find what I was looking for.
