I hate New Years Resolutions
Monday, January 01, 2018      4 comments

It feels cliché and appropriate that for three months my blog has been silent, and on the first day of 2018 I should remember that it even exists. A true test of how important something is, I feel, is determined on how often you think about it ... Read more
The victory is that I rallied in the end
Tuesday, October 03, 2017      1 comments

I'm purposely not starting by writing a post title to this blog because I'm hoping for something better to come from writing about my lack of blogs this last month and the crummy month September was.  Where do I even start?  September held so ma... Read more
August 2017 can just go away
Monday, September 04, 2017      5 comments

I dreaded stepping on the scale this morning.  I knew I had to do it if I was going to keep myself accountable long term to my monthly check ins.  I was perhaps surprised to find my weight had not changed.  I certainly did not expect to see the ... Read more
Color Run 5k
Friday, August 04, 2017      3 comments

I was tricked by the Ohio weather a couple weeks ago and didn't go to the Color Run event I signed up for.  I was certain the looming heavy rain and thunderstorms would cancel the event.  I ended up being very wrong and as a result, did not part... Read more

Color Run Fail
Saturday, July 22, 2017      2 comments

I was supposed to walk the Color Run in Columbus this morning with a friend.  The key words here being supposed to.  Ohio weather has a way of changing on you at the last moment but Ohio sure fooled me.  With a 100% chance of rain and thundersto... Read more
I Decide
Saturday, July 15, 2017      6 comments

I sat down a half hour ago to write a blog titled, "Summer Slump."  I was going to write about how bad I have done this summer walking, riding my bike, and overall not being as active as I was in the spring.  As I began to compose the first coup... Read more
July 1, 2017: End of month results
Saturday, July 01, 2017      3 comments

It's hard to believe another month has come and gone again.  This hasn't been a good month for me.  I have been working late, stressed out over work and money, and have spent less and less time being active.  Because of my work schedule, but mor... Read more
Bike rides and Baggy clothes
Saturday, June 17, 2017      0 comments

Despite my lack of exercise this week, the end of the week proved to be exciting.  A co-worker who only sees me once a week commented on Friday that my clothing looked like it was getting big on me!  I have also sensed this.  Several of my shirt... Read more
New Mission
Saturday, June 10, 2017      3 comments

One of the things I love about living in Columbus Ohio is the Metro Parks.  Many of them are built with cyclist in mind and offer bike paths that can not only be used by cyclist, but people walking as well.  Three of the major bike paths are ver... Read more
Before pictures are important too
Sunday, June 04, 2017      2 comments

I hate this picture but it's an important one to share. I found the shirt at Catos and knew I had to have it. Back in the day, I was able to do an hour of kickboxing and I used to love feeling the sweat pour down my face. It was additional confi... Read more

It's like riding a bike
Sunday, June 04, 2017      2 comments

When I was younger, riding a bike was life.  We lived on a very remote back country road with very little traffic.  As a result, my parents did not worry about my brother and I straying half a mile down the road.  The road was hilly, as was our ... Read more
Let your thoughts manifest in your actions
Saturday, May 27, 2017      3 comments

I love to travel.  Nothing thrills me more than to pack a bag and take a road trip to a place I have never been.  What I hate about road trips, however, is when these trips take place in the summer months.  When it's cold, I'm a styling genius. ... Read more
