Had another great day of challenging exercise and healthy eating. Pushed my bike ride a bit and ended up with 42+ miles in under 3 hours in wind and hilly terrain. I stuck to the nutritional plan and did very well. Momma would be proud of her ha... Read more

Was all set for a great day, until I visited the Air Force Base and noticed that the healthy food kiosk was closed. Nothing else but unhealthy stuff. Since I was totally starving, had to settle for less than ideal. Luckily, I burned close to 2,... Read more

Welcome 2012!! I needed a big change and this is it. Since Thanksgiving I went up in weight to the tune of 15 lbs. I hadn't weight myself in until yesterday and was flabbergasted at what the scale showed. And this in spite of biking almost every... Read more

A Spanglish Night Before Christmas
'Twas the Night before Christmas & all through the Casa,
Not a Creature was stirring, Caramba! Que pasa?
Los Ninos were all tucked in their Camas,
Some in long Underwear, some in Piyamas,
While Mami worked late in her little Cocina,

Happy to say that I'm back. Standing tall, feeling good, ought to be in Hollywood. Have been riding for several days and the back is healed. The neck's a bit stiff, but much better than earlier. I'm now thoroughly in the "Christmas" mood. I have... Read more
Super Bummed Out
I'm a pretty healthy guy. I hardly ever get a cold or get sick. On Wednesday, I felt my neck getting a bit stiff. On Wednesday night, it took me forever to get into the bed. My nerves were pinging me and making it difficult for me to get comfort... Read more
Have been filling in for son at work and it's getting to me. Was unable to bike yesterday because of the demands at work. Not used to missing bike days because of work. Luckily, he returned yesterday so, it should be back to normal. Th nutrition... Read more
Another very cold day in South Texas. Wind chill put it into the mid 20's. Did some dreaded speed intervals at the USAF base. Nutrition was perfect. Had a sizable calorie deficit, for a change. HOOAAA!!... Read more
The cold weather has made it to South Texas. The 2 hour bike ride yesterday had temperatures in the high 30's with high winds. Certainly made it interesting. Today is supposed to be even colder. What to do?? Hang tough and keep on biking. HOOAAA... Read more
The stage was set. Last organized ride of the year, a 54-miler, with rain and wind to make it memorable. And we're off. I'm at the front along with about 15 other riders. The pace gets a bit unreal and I back off and let the young heroes take th... Read more
Well, here I sit at the computer while the rain is falling outside. In 15 minutes I head out for a 58-mile organized ride. It'll be a bit wet, but that's what I truly enjoy. Doing something that others think not doable. The bike will be filthy, ... Read more
Did some of those dreaded speed intervals yesterday. Unfortunately, I had a strong headwind for all 10 intervals. So, it was not fun, but we hung tough and completed them. I just never look forward to intervals. They just beat me up. On the brig... Read more
