Some say not, I say Yes. Posting blog entires does hold you accountable. Since I started regularly posting a blog, I find myself more conscious of "not screwing up" for fear of letting down my Spark Friends and myself. The result, so far, has be... Read more

Yesrday was a good healthy day. Took it easy on the bike and did a slow recovery ride. What a great feeling it is to be using holes on your belt that you've never before used. Happy with the progress and eager to continue the challenge.... Read more

Nutrition---Check, Exercise---Check. On track and focused!! Went yesterday to eye-ball aero stuff for time trialing (overshoes, helmet, wheels, aerobar) and discovered that it's not cheap. But if it spells "being fit', it'll be worth every penny... Read more

Another great day. Did hill repeats on my bike. Boy is that tiring. I can see why it's good for you. I'm determined to be a better climber and a better sprinter on the bike. The only way to do that is to practice at it. Will work on my sprinting... Read more

For 12 days I was a good boy. Yesterday I was a "PUTZ". I didn't exercise, I went nuts on cookies, and I had more than 1 healthy serving of my wife's delicious chicken stew. As a side light, I didn't cycle for the first time in I don't know how ... Read more

Continued my success. Logged over 2 hours of cycling and netted less than 500 calories. Due to substituting, had to exercise in the later afternoon. Felt very different. I'm feeling my waist shrinking. I guess that's a good sign. Looking forward... Read more
