Be Contagious
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

Watching Biggest Loser tonight, I was thinking of how when people have the same interests or goals it can be contagious. Fans of a certain Rock Band, or College, or TV Show will be able to talk instantly, even though they just met. There is an... Read more

Just over a month until the favorite amusement destination for our family closes for the year. Cedar Point, the World's Greatest Amusement Park (really, they have awards for that from International groups). I am staring some goals, to fit bett... Read more

I have been focusing on eating the past 2 weeks or so, focusing on tracking. I have not made much effort at exercise, yet I still expect to see some downward trend on the scale. Perhaps I'm mistaken, or perhaps this is showing me that I'm not ... Read more

A nice easy day, feeling in control, now it looks lke I will be going to one of my favorite fairs. No biggy except it has some of the best (not good for you) ever. I am strong, the goal of what I want is more valuable than the short term enjoy... Read more

Took the kiddies to Cedar Point yesterday, we didn't stay all day but still planned for some snacks. The kids brought breakfast with them, I ate some cereal at home - then brought a banana so I'd have a later bite when we got there. We bro... Read more

Doing well the last week or so, writing every bite, planning and preparing for starting to ride my bike into work. Definitely some challenges in the evenings! Reading the Health Blog on Water, perhaps I just need to keep a gallon of water next... Read more
Goals and Rewards
Saturday, August 28, 2010      1 comments

I like to play games, in fact I joke about possibly having OCD and if something is a game I'll often do what it takes to do it - to get the reward. Mentally I know being healthy is the ultimate goal yet it seems so far away its easy to lose foc... Read more

In February I had no issues on focus, I knew what I wanted and I was working to get there. I can make excuses on the difficulty of work travel on healthy living/eating, but in the end I own it. I lost my focus, or it changed. I have ignored t... Read more

I'm in a good motivation spot right now - I'm also seeing longer term. I'm looking at upcoming 5Ks, there is one in late March, I won't hurt myself, but thinking that might be a geat goal. Last weekend I was able to jog 1.5+ miles, so I'm half... Read more

Saturday I wasn't prepared, it was a busy day, driving an hour to the West for a basketball game, followed by an additonal hour to the east for a Volleyball game. My daughter was hungry which had stop at the big arches, and I made a mistake and... Read more

I speak with people about motivation, and I always wonder about mine. At 10am I can have an iron will and I am on track, at 2pm I will look for any excuse and not care about a program or plan. I think that a lot of the Sparkpeople items/daily ... Read more

Tonight I have been invited to a work function dinner at a very nice restaurant, I have already been online studying their menu, making my choices now. I want to be ready, not saying I will do perfect, but having the battle plan should make a h... Read more
Where's the Fire?
Sunday, January 31, 2010      0 comments

One week ago I couldn't imagine not tracking every calorie, making sure worthwhile trips to the health club were scheduled and followed up on. This past week, I'm forcing myself to record. I'm checking my weight, it's varied a little bit but s... Read more
Avoiding Temptation
Monday, January 25, 2010      0 comments

As many of us, this isn't the first time I've gone down the path of losing weight. In those journeys I found that not allowing yourself to have favorite food can cause failure, if you love chocolate and never eat any chocolate, then eventually ... Read more

It's funny how cycles - well cycle. Last night I was tired, I was tempted, ended up a little higher calorie wise than I thought I would, but still in range. Yet I wasn't in my zone of feeling in control. This morning, I weight myself and I'm ... Read more
