So, I am kind of like the friend that disappears and comes back and wants to pick up right where we left off, right? Well, I come back to the Spark, humbled, shamed and embarrassed. Here is where i have been since December and really before th... Read more
Ah, here it is, my least favorite month - followed closely by February. At least we get them out of the way. I am a fall kind of guy, not a winter guy. Not becasue of the cold, LOVE the cold, it is just the grey. The winter is grey (not alw... Read more
Physically, mentally and emotionally - I am ready to Spark. My last post kind of laid out my soul bare, but I needed to fix some things that were broken emotionally, and I am on the right path.
So, a funny thing happened last week. I alwa... Read more
It isn't easy
I would very much like to say that since joining the Spark back in March, I have lost 70 pounds. But that would be a lie, I also would like to say I made a million dollars - but that is a lie to.
Lie, it is a funny word. People use it whe... Read more
A little bit of Michael
Sometimes we forget who we are or where we are going. Sometimes we forget what is important to us and why.
I had fallen into a pit of repitition for months and months, but I am working hard to get myself out of it before it causes any issu... Read more

Day 1 - Yes, you read that right
As motivating as SparkPeople and my Spark friends are and can be, I had given up (or so I thought). I decided I did not want to try to lose weight or live healthy anymore, and I grew quiet and painfully withdrew. This was not a surprise to me,... Read more
Day - 38 Paleo Juxtaposition
I am trying to live a Paleo life. So far I am about 60% there, and it doesn't count yet. I have no allergies to foods, but honestly, I LOVE the way I feel eating Paleo. Unfortunately, it is a lot of hard work to come up with recipes and plan ... Read more
Day 36 - Had to share
So, I have been off SparkPeople for a week almost now, really, really fraking sick. I was able to still get to the gym until Wednesday, keeping up with my goal of 6 days on the bike for 27 weeks (I will post about that tomorrow), but I had to m... Read more
Day 31 - Month 1, done
OK, so there have been some high highs and some low lows this past month. BUT, all in all, I think I am better for it.
I netted 10 pounds down, and considering the way I treated myeslef two weeks of the month, I will take it but forever be fo... Read more
Day 23 - Can't fignt this feeling any more
Science and experience prove that those who track their exercise and food are more succesful. On that note, now that the drama from last week is at an end, i can focus again on me and getting this done.
A quick shout out to my friends who ... Read more
Day 19 - Frustration
OK, before I say what is frustrating me, there are 2 things (and this is the place to vent, right), I have to preface it with the following:
* I am eating between 1700-2000 calories DAILY
* I am working out 5 days a week cardio (... Read more
Day 16 - Under 300
I am back in the land of the 200+ pound folk, as opposed to 300+
Woo-hoo! Still a long way to go, but that difference is a huge mental barrier.
i have been thinking about triathlon - I am scheduled for a race in April of 2013 in Napa CA.... Read more
Day 11 - Etiquette, lies and hope
Here’s the deal. This blog is threefold; first, to be honest about something, second, to talk about me and third, to give you all a little Vegas etiquette.
OK, so I did not break 300 this weekend like I thought. I was actually a little ba... Read more
Day 10 - I am doing this
Like other people, I too felt miserable watching the weight come back on after so much loss, but today, I am doing it. Again. And will continue to do it over and over and over until it sticks. Because you and I? We are worth every dang drop ... Read more
