Friday, August 30, 2013      3 comments

I can't believe how much I have put on in the past year. I have been so stressed out. Last I checked I was almost at 190. That almost 20lbs up from my lower weights of the past 5 years. I am going to get on a scale today for the first time since... Read more

A month ago that seemed impossible. Here is the issue. This is very close to my tipping point - the weight I stopped at last time I was losing. I got to about 168 - 169 and I just sort of sputtered out of gas. Granted, I maintained fairly well f... Read more

So, I have been having trouble lately finding anyone to get on this fitness train with... So I am thinking Twitter might be a good way to keep up with other people and try to stay on track. Does anyone else use Twitter in this way? If so, plea... Read more

A Scale Tale

Tuesday, May 12, 2009      3 comments

So about two months ago... sometime in March I believe, my scale suddenly died. It was not the battery, as I tried a replacement. I think it may have gotten wet... though how, I am not sure. But this was a setback, because having the scale th... Read more

Slow but... not back sliding. Ankle Issues.

Wednesday, January 28, 2009      1 comments

So the ankle thing really did me in for a while. I did not run for almost 3 weeks. I have been hiking on it, but last night was the first night that I jogged since falling. Upon the advice of several people, I invested in an ankle brace... Read more

So Now I Am Really Screwed

Sunday, January 11, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday, while I was running my 5k, I fell and really destroyed myself. My ankle... which broke about 4 years ago and contributed to my weight gain, gave out and I hit the asphalt at full speed. So, in addition to the huge blister mentioned... Read more
