What have I done?!
Thursday, April 11, 2019      2 comments

Next February I'm going to turn 50 years old. I wanted to do something to celebrate the occasion. I wanted to do something that my friends and family would never expect. I've decided to run a half marathon. That kind of a big thing because I... Read more

Two months ago, after a 10 year absence, I returned to SparkPeople. I'm getting backing into the swing of things and learning lots of new stuff. I'm excited to see that after only 2 months I'm already halfway to my goal weight. With a little ... Read more

I don't know what happened last week. I've been very busy at work, and a result, I skipped several meals. I made a few bad eating choices, but was I'm sure I never exceeded my daily caloric intake. I 'substituted' many calories with alcohol. ... Read more
Here's to another week
Tuesday, April 21, 2009      0 comments

Last week I felt like I didn't do my best to stay on track. I wasn't tracking my foods during the day. Therefore, I didn't know for sure what my intake was when I decided to pop something into my mouth. Playing with fire. For the most part, ... Read more
What a day...

Today I was supposed to host my fishing trip and big crawfish boil party. That had been postponed, in part, due to the weather. The other reason was because the crawfish never arrived in town. That kinda ruins the plans for a crawfish boil. ... Read more

I am happy to report that Mr. Scale appear to be working towards the same goal. I want the number to go down, he makes the number go down. I know it's still early in the game and this is the easy weight to lose. It won't come off quite so eas... Read more

I invited (through e-mail) everyone at my work to join me for the American Heart Associations Start! Walking day. We were just going to meet behind the office after work and go for a quick 2 mile walk on a route that I'm familiar with. Of the ... Read more

Today we were supposed to go geocaching. Well, technically, we did go geocaching, but the wind was blowing so hard that we decided to call it off. That 6 mile walk would have been a good workout. Oh, well... We'll try again in a few weeks. ... Read more
Rough week
Friday, March 27, 2009      0 comments

This week didn't go as well as I would have liked. Many interruptions and temptations. For starters, the weather wasn't cooperating with our plans to get outside and go for a walk. I'm gonna try to be good this weekend and hit it again next w... Read more

The Holidays are over. In fact, they are WAY over. I've got running shoes and I'm out of excuses. It's time to get serious. Last year I never reached my goal (though I did come close). This year I hope to finish what I started and with the ... Read more

This log entry is really for June 29, 2008. Last week was another hectic week. I've been really busy with a project at work and didn't even login to SP for about 4 days. My eating was less than ideal. I got zero cardio in for the whole week.... Read more
Week 13 - Slow Progress... But Progress
Sunday, June 22, 2008      0 comments

Again, this week I didn't want to get on the scale. I knew I had to though. The time for excuses was over. Either I'm going to do this, or I've just been wasting my time. I finally climbed out of bed and headed to the scale. He smiled when ... Read more

This is going to be quick. This week was not a good week. It started on Monday by going to a different lunch place than we (our little SP lunch bunch) was used to. We didn't know the nutritional values of the menu items or if we would even be... Read more
