Well, I've made it through another week of this month's challenges. I don't think the scale will reflect any pounds lost, but I do feel that I have made progress in the exercise department. We have about 6 months until we go on our trip to Kuwai... Read more

Just a quick note to say that we had an awesome day at the Evergreen Air and Space Museum. We were there walking around for 4.5 hours so at least I got some activity in. We had a nice dinner to make up for yesterday's buffet of non healthy items... Read more

I think it is time to put my goals in writing again. Towards the end of last week I fell into the winter and diet doldrums and I don't want to let that become the norm. I think part of the problem was not planning ahead as much as I had been sin... Read more

I cannot believe that January is ending already. I started out this month really well with my exercise plan and have been lacking the motivation the last two weeks because of my health. So, tomorrow I am going to do the inevitable confrontation ... Read more

Today was not an especially good day for me, but I didn't totally blow it either. My neck and back pain is stilll hanging around so I didn't do any exercise. I'm not sure if that helps or not but I just did not feel up to it for multiple reasons... Read more

Today started off awesome with me winning 500 points on the spark spin. Unfortunately the day went downhill from there. The morning wasn't too bad and I did go to the gym and did lower body strength and abs at noon. However, the afternoon left m... Read more
