Day 4 pushup challenge
Thursday, January 05, 2017      2 comments

5 real pushups. 15 modified pushups. 27 minutes on elliptical/bike. So...yeah. The elliptical trainer. It looks like such a silly thing. It totally kicked my butt. The 27 minutes was NOT consecutive. I had to keep backing off and sit... Read more

5 hand-release pushups, 10 pushups on my knees. 20 minutes of weights: 2 sets, 15 reps, 8lbs. 1 minute of planks (unfortunately not all at once yet). Vacation's over; I go back to work tomorrow. Going back on a Thursday means that all t... Read more
Day 2 of pushup challenge

I can't do a pushup to save my life. I half-assed my way through them yesterday, and today...ugh. I had to do the second set on my knees. No upper body strength at all. It hurts. I don't know how I'm going to get to 50 pushups ever, much le... Read more

Yeah, so I'd like to lose 50 pounds to get back to where I was 10 years ago, my most comfortable weight. Reasonably, taking off 30 pounds would bring me to a good BMI range. And I'm thinking instead of just simply losing weight, I'd like to ga... Read more

I have survived the holidays. I have five more days of vacation before I go back to work. But I've spent the last week visiting with family...and that means a lot of sitting, and a whole lot of eating. I was hoping to spend the vacation getti... Read more

I finished the whole 30 at the end of August, and then lots of things happened. I went back to school to pursue another Master's degree. I bought a house. And I developed plantar fasciitis in both feet, and tendinitis in the right foot. ... Read more

Holy cow, I made it through all 30 days. Barely. The Dude and I are going to start reintroducing, starting with grains. We are going to have brown rice tonight with dinner. Hopefully that goes okay. I'm actually a bit apprehensive about the... Read more

Hitting the home stretch. Yesterday I sat through a staff meeting with my salad and raw veggies while everyone around me ate Aurelio's pizza and made ice cream sundaes. And last night I dreamed that it was day 30 and I got on the scale to find... Read more

Five more days!!! I'm feeling a bit better, although the digestive issues are still there. Little more appetite the last couple of days. Today was my first day of school (students on Monday...two days of meetings first). One of my coworkers ... Read more
Day 23 Whole 30
Tuesday, August 16, 2016      2 comments

7 days to go. I've been trying to look for information as to why I'm still feeling like crap. There is some evidence to suggest that maybe I have a sensitivity to nuts or eggs. Last night all I had was a salad with some grilled chicken and ho... Read more

Yeah, I don't know how well I'm actually doing with this diet. Yesterday morning I got sick--really sick. Friday night it was raining, so instead of grilling we made breakfast skillets: potato, green and yellow pepper, leeks, beef chorizo, an... Read more

12 more days to go. I found some organic almond butter that I have been putting on my apples, which is pretty yummy. But the big score was happening across some sugar-free low sodium bacon. I'm going to spend some time this morning re-reading... Read more

I've skipped a few days. My summer is drawing to a close, and I'm getting caught up in various tasks...starting a new master's degree, preparing to buy a house, planning for the new school year. But I've made it two weeks! I'm halfway t... Read more

Never got around to posting yesterday, but I had some turkey roll-ups filled with lettuce, a swai filet and some grilled veggies and potato. Had cantaloupe for dessert and a handful of pistachios and olives. Today was a busy day. The Dude... Read more
