Day 30 - Losing Steam?
Monday, March 31, 2008      0 comments

It may just be the fact that it was a weekend, but I feel like I've been slacking lately. I did a second night in a row of just 30 mins of cardio. It's because I got a late start again that I cut it short. Today is trash day so after I got my... Read more
Day 29 - Getting perspective on past mistakes
Sunday, March 30, 2008      0 comments

The scale dropped this morning (the day AFTER my weight in). The same thing happened a couple weeks ago when I had a lousy weigh in one week and had that 3.6 lb loss the next. So perhaps this will set me up for a really good weigh in this week... Read more
Day 28 - Untitled
Sunday, March 30, 2008      0 comments

I had my weigh in today. Nothing spectacular this week. But I guess that's not surprising given last week's 3.6 lb loss. This week's was less than a lb. But I'm still ahead of my plan, so I'm not worried. I like weekends because I get to... Read more
Day 27 - Shocking Thai restaurant nutritional analysis I did today
Friday, March 28, 2008      3 comments

Last night's workout was good. I started out at my standard 2.5 mph at a 15% incline. but at about the 15 min point I decided that 2.5 mph was too easy. So I moved it up to 2.7 mph. At the 20 min point I decided to move it up to 3.0. But 7 ... Read more
Day 26 - Didn't exercise yesterday but stayed on plan
Thursday, March 27, 2008      1 comments

I didn't exercise yesterday. I was going to have to work, but then I discovered I didn't have what I needed in order to do the work from home. So I had to wait until this morning to do it at the office. But in the meantime I wound up deciding... Read more
Day 25 - The President's Challenge & Sleep
Wednesday, March 26, 2008      0 comments

I mentioned a few days ago that my team at work has decided to participate in the President's Challenge (yes, the program that was created for school kids! - but they have programs for adults now too) Four of us are actively entering our exerci... Read more
Day 24 - Devastating news last night
Tuesday, March 25, 2008      4 comments

I got a call from my father last night. My step-mother went in for a PET scan last week due to a paralyzed vocal chord. She had cancer a couple years ago (breast cancer and lung cancer). She had radiation, but not chemo. She was tested each ... Read more
Day 23 - Got rid of the candy!
Monday, March 24, 2008      1 comments

I packed up all the candy last night and brought it to work this morning. I left a dove chocolate truffle egg for the kids to share, and 4 little packages of M&M-like balls that my son really liked. Other than that, all candy has been purged. ... Read more
Day 22 - Not so fast on the self congratulations, I guess
Sunday, March 23, 2008      0 comments

No, I didn't blow it or anything. It's just that Easter was hard on me. My weakness is candy. And not only did we have the candy I got our kids for their Easter Egg hunt, but the neighbors came over with cakes and candies for them last night.... Read more
Day 21 - Official Weigh In
Saturday, March 22, 2008      2 comments

Woooo hoooo! The 188.8 from yesterday's unofficial weigh in stuck! So today it's official. I'm out of the 190s; hopefully forever! What a great week for weight loss. Hopefully I've given myself enough of a buffer to see myself through my ne... Read more
Day 20 - Yeah, I guess it was water retention last week!
Friday, March 21, 2008      0 comments

I stepped on the scale this morning and saw 188.8! That's such a sudden drop I'm not sure it's real, but it was really cool to see. We'll see what my official weigh-in winds up being tomorrow. I drank 12 glasses of water yesterday, so I k... Read more
Day 19 - Ran out of time
Thursday, March 20, 2008      0 comments

I ran out of time last night for exercise. We went to the park with the kids when I got home from work. While we were there we met a few folks and got to talking. Our kids played with each other and the adults talked. They were really nice a... Read more
Day 18- Good day yesterday
Wednesday, March 19, 2008      0 comments

I did 47 minutes of treadmill walking last night. I didn't mean to go past 45, but I didn't notice I was already past it. Then I did my resistance bands for upper body and did a series of knee pushups. My heart rate ranged from 150 in the firs... Read more
Day 17 - Things are better than I thought
Tuesday, March 18, 2008      2 comments

Again, I don't mean to indicate with my title that things were horrible before. I just discovered a couple cool things this morning. One is that I did my first *morning* waist tape test. All my other tape measurements were in the evenin... Read more
Day 16 - Still here... still on plan
Monday, March 17, 2008      2 comments

The title sounds morose, but really, I view it as an accomplishment. I'm not just plodding gloomily along, I'm working the plan. My weigh in on Saturday was a disappointment. Even with a good workout the night before, my weight didn't b... Read more
