Open for business

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      1 comments

My past month has been a bit scrambled. I just went from being a full time stay at home dad to trying to cobble together an online business. Between running kids around for summer camp and trying to keep up with the Laundry summer has bee... Read more

It came. Woo HOOOOO.

For our ten year anniversary my wife and I purchased something useful. We got a refurbished precor elliptical and it came today. It is awesome. It is exactly the model we used to use at the gym back in Livonia. Yeah.... Read more

A shift in thinking

Thursday, June 21, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday I signed up for Weight Watchers and went to my first meeting with my wife. My diet has been the real hold back between real results and returning to the place I was a year ago. Will I still be using spark people. Yep. I thin... Read more

My plan. The end of the slip and a return to what worked.

I haven't blogged for a while it appears. I know why a little ashamed to admit that despite being at home with my daughter and having access to my YMCA as I needed it I was unable to keep the pounds from creeping up. Well the skip has been st... Read more

Falling into Step

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      1 comments

Went to the YMCA yesterday morning thinking that I was going to be getting there just in time to try out a sculpting class. I walk up to the door and realize that it is step first then sculpt. I tried the class anyway and while I'm sure I look... Read more

Getting Real and a question begging for an answer. (Should I erase my points and start over?)

Wednesday, December 07, 2011      5 comments

I've been down and now back up a bit, and I hit the realization that a few pounds here and there turns into a landslide quickly. While I'm still able to run a mile without stopping my endurance has suffered due to going through the motion... Read more

Is it really fall?

Friday, September 30, 2011      2 comments

I think I'm finally getting into a groove it took a couple of months of sorting things out and but I think exercise has become a priority again. Ran an mile today without stopping so I think a 5k will be around the corner. It was 94 yes... Read more

Been away for awhile... Time to be back :)

Thursday, July 28, 2011      3 comments

I think I'm finally ready to get back to Sparkpeople after a month of moving, living in a hotel, unpacking and two sick kids we are rounding the bend. (Fingers crossed) Now the challenge is to figure out where to start. Surprisingly I'm only 8 ... Read more

Filling in the Blog Gap, a whirlwind tour, and things to come.

The past couple of months have been pretty crazy around our house. Only a few people knew until recently that our family is relocating to League City, Texas in July. So this last weekend was our house hunting trip and I have to say everything i... Read more

Login Streak... Gone?

Thursday, May 12, 2011      2 comments

Apparently I must not have let the wheel spin all the way out 10 days ago I was checking my current login streak and see that it says 10 days. But in the words of Bill Murray in Meatballs "It just doesn't matter". There are far more... Read more

Farmington Spring Classic 5k (not a real race)

Saturday, April 16, 2011      2 comments

Ran the route of the Farmington Hills Fall Classic on Friday at lunch time. I really need to get a new watch for timing my runs after I killed my Polar HRM. Anyway, I looked at my cell phone at the beginning and end and in theory I ran the 5K ... Read more

Blog it out, Restring the instruments and tighten up the screws

Friday, April 15, 2011      2 comments

Four months... Stuck at the same weight for that long. No serious gains .. no losses. I know what is stopping my progress. Bite here bite there and not tracking it all, so the great nutritional day becomes good. The good mediocre and t... Read more

10K a week away

Saturday, March 26, 2011      2 comments

My first 10K is a week from today. I can't say I have followed a religious training program other than running three days a week with one of those days typically being a long run. My only real concern is covering the whole distance as I haven... Read more

400 days straight

Wednesday, March 16, 2011      1 comments

One thing I have learned from Sparkpeople is this, consistency counts. While my nutrition may not be perfect everyday, and I may not push as hard in some workouts one thing has helped keep me on the path toward continued success. Logging in. ... Read more

Of Bronchials and Ceiling Wax, Cabbages, and Kings.

Friday, February 25, 2011      1 comments

Yuck. Tired of being sick and tired. Bronchitis it is!!! I've had with being sick. A week without running or exercise makes one a little bit nutty when that is your regular routine. So hopefully tomorrow will bring fresh lungs and a s... Read more
