Wow, this seems to be my biggest weakness. I need to track my calories! Anyone have any helpful hints?
Otherwise, things are going good. I made the decision to trade my Xbox on Craigslist for someone else's Wii. I'm glad I did. Now I have something with, what I call, the three F's: Fun, Fitness, and Family. I'm definitely moving more now that there is a Wii in the house. Burning anywhere from 100-500 calories a day just on the Wii alone. This doesn't count the walks I've been taking to work.
Speaking of walks, it has been a little too hot and humid for me. Monday was hot, but not humid at all. Which was fine. Yesterday it was around 97 with full humidity, so I opted to skip the walk. Today is suposed to bring a hurricane, which should cool things off for the next few days. Yay!
I also quit my second job. My wife took on a job a night, which lets me come home from work and have more time with the kids. I also get to have more time with the Wii and am burning some calories doing housework! Housework is no joke! Lots of calories burnt there!

Just wanted to say how thankful I was that my co-workers aren't putting out a lot of candy. In my previous jobs, there would be a ton of candy coming back after Halloween. It would continue until Christmas was over with. So far this year, there is nothing.
Personally, I'm too cheap to buy candy for my co-workers' sake. Plus it is just added temptation for me. Whether it is the economy or whatever that is keeping people from bringing in those extra calories; it is something that I can be thankful for.

OK, I would like to be more active at work. I see lots of opportunity. It is a relatively large place to work, so there are lots of places to walk. There are many, many staircases too. However, my issue is sweating. Especially with this heat. Seriously, it is so hot and muggy that you start sweating just by taking a shower. That is just messed up.
The other day I saw my boss walking up 5 flights. I know they have morning activity sessions in Japan, etc. So I am very jealous.
My theory is that as I get into my new skinny skin, that I will sweat less. But I still don't know that five flights of stairs will be sweat free. So, does anyone have any suggestions about being fit and active at work without offending the co-workers?

Well, my shinny new 1994 finally bit the dust on Friday. It sounded like a gremlin was in my engine knocking around with a hammer. It sounded awful. At least I was able to get my family home, even if it was 10-15 mph.
Thanks to that, I've been doing a lot of walking over the weekend. So in a way, this is one of those blessings in disguises. Seems like I've been getting a lot of those lately. But, it is what it is. So now I'm down another 3 pounds and getting healthier every day.

How many people remember the movie "Click" with Adam Sandler? This is the movie where Adam is given a remote control with the ability to pause, fast forward, mute, and whatever else to life. If his wife is yelling, he hits mute. If his day is boring, he hits fast forward. In one scene there was a female jogger that he used slow motion on. You can probably get the drift of what that looked like.
This happened to me yesterday. Although, it wasn't an attractive female jogger. It was a shirtless man in his mid-thirties pushing a wheel barrel. He was a bit over weight, but not quite as bad as me. And (Bridget Jones Diary term coming up) as I drove by you could see all his wobbly bits slowly moving up and down like a big gelatinous blob.
At first I was wondering why I faced the curse of having to see it and having it replay in my mind in slow motion. Then I thought about it. I could take this as a learning experience. Maybe I can use this as a motivation. Every time I go out to get some exercise I can think about my wobbly bits slowly melting off.
