The Quest for the Final 16 Lbs: Day 4
Monday, October 26, 2009      7 comments

I've decided to use Monday mornings as my official weekly weigh in day. I used to use Saturdays, but I didn't weigh in that day, and I wanted to get an official one on the books soon. Besides, Monday makes sure I make it through the weekend wi... Read more
The Quest for the Final 17 Lbs: Day 3
Sunday, October 25, 2009      6 comments

Today was a pretty good day, though I'm going to run out of time tonight. I need to get some serious stuff thrown away that I cleaned up this week because our trash and recycling cans are much less full since Steve is out of town. So it's a pr... Read more

Sunday, October 25, 2009      4 comments

Today was a good day despite the misleading advertising of Subway! Grrr! I love Subway (used to work there in High School) but I'm quite annoyed with them right now. Anyway, today was a very busy day. Started out with me feeding me and t... Read more
The Quest for the Final 17 lbs: Day 1
Friday, October 23, 2009      6 comments

The single most basic thing I haven't been doing that is absolutely vital to my success has been logging my food and tracking my calories. It's easy to say you don't have time to do it, or it's too much of a pain in the neck. But it works. I'... Read more

I've got a little down time at work right now (which is very rare lately) so I decided to hop over to SparkPeople and try to catch up with some of the SparkFriends I've been neglecting (most of them!) This is going to be a rare blog for m... Read more

Wow, has it really been that long since I did a blog? Yikes! I've been so darned busy! First Beth was sick (Flu, not her digestive issue), then I was sick, then I went on a last-minute trip to DC, then I came home and David got the flu. ... Read more

Tonight I officially signed up for the Tinsel Triathlon near my home. I'm really looking forward to it. I've never done a triathlon before. I don't think I'll have any trouble finishing it, but the bike portion will be an unknown for me. It'... Read more
Birthday, polygraph, and life
Friday, September 25, 2009      5 comments

Sorry I haven’t been around on SparkPeople much the last few days. I don’t tend to post much on weekends anyway because of limited schedule time. But then I went to DC for my polygraph and got back on Tuesday night. I’ve been swamped at work ... Read more

Today was the 5K put on by my town each year to encourage locals to exercise and get fit. It's the race I did last year at this time that showed me that my incline treadmill walking had gotten me in hill running shape without my even realizing ... Read more

Thursday, September 10, 2009      8 comments

Today's is a rant from me. This is from my Saturday lap swimming. I swim laps at the indoor pool at my gym. That area includes the steam room, dry sauna, and the whirlpool. The sauna gets a lot of business. But here's what drives me nut... Read more
Aargh! Lost Blog! Topic: Self-forgiveness
Wednesday, September 09, 2009      11 comments

I just wrote a long and thought-provoking blog describing my weekend and ending with a discussion on self-forgiveness. And then I lost it. I copied it before posting so that if anything happened to it I'd still have it, but somehow the copy di... Read more
Workout, elbow, and work
Thursday, September 03, 2009      10 comments

Yes, a very odd title for today's blog. But those are the topics. Workout - last night I had a great workout. I did my incline walk and did my standard hopping off to do pushups and pullups throughout the workout. I was finally able to r... Read more
My workout history - How I got from there to here
Tuesday, September 01, 2009      8 comments

As I've mentioned before... I did not come out of a box at my current level of fitness. When I started this journey I was in terrible shape and hadn't worked out reliably in years. And, well... uh... that's one of the main reasons I had gotten... Read more
