Confession time!!!
Sunday, April 03, 2011      10 comments

So I haven't made a blog post in a while. I guess it is mainly because I haven't been doing as well as I was doing last year. It is now confession time. I have gained over 10 lbs and have not changed my weight on the site due to embarrassment... Read more

In November, I went from being unemployed to working 8-10 hours a day - 7 days a week. This is only a "temporary" project that I am doing but my life as a fitness trainer has been totally put on hold. I've noticed that the harder I work, the m... Read more

I can't believe that I did not blog about hitting my goal. I guess I must have just posted on Facebook. Anyway, not only did I hit 3000 miles for the year on October 27th, I added almost another 200 miles since then. I am on my way to my next ... Read more

OK so I got back on the bike this week and have gone another 88 miles in 3 days. I haven't got an official doctor release yet but I am feeling so much better and the cycling does not hurt my arm at all. I'm being very careful and have limited ... Read more

I just got back from a family reunion with my 4 siblings and dozens of aunts, uncles, cousins and their families. We have not been all together for 5 years. We had a great time but I cannot believe how much attention was spent on food consumpt... Read more
Following Doctor's orders
Thursday, September 23, 2010      4 comments

I will admit that I have always been a rebel. I don't like being told what to do and usually find a way to do things my way. Today I had my surgery follow up visit with the doctor and he told me that although I was healing, he still doesn't wa... Read more

Keeping on Track
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      6 comments

I've noticed that sometimes I use my broken arm as an excuse to not keep up with my food and exercise log. I am still eating really healthy and manage to exercise in some form for at least an hour a day but I'm not tracking everything. I reall... Read more
