Getting into the swim of things
Went snorkeling today for 1.5 hours in windy, slightly rough conditions. Did pretty good for not being the best swimmer around. Saw lots of cool things: sea turtle, sharks, rays, conches, parrotfish, barracuda, etc. Lots of fun. Got in about 4 m... Read more
Better Day Today
So, I'm not near any gym equipment or free weights, but I did get to do about 8 miles walking at a pretty good pace. Was up on my feet most of the day instead of in the car...whew! Did some exercises (crunches, pushups, etc.). All in all, acco... Read more
Taking the day off
Spent most of the day traveling. Ate lean, but didn't get much exercise except for a small walk I'm taking in a few minutes. No gym in sight and it's late in the evening. Tomorrow's another day and I'll try to make the best of it by overcoming a... Read more
Good Physical Results
Got the results back from the doctor today. Everything turned out perfect - Doc was blown away about my cholestrol level and sugar. Heck of a change from the last several years, so I'm happy about that.
My goal for next year is to keep them a... Read more
Should Sunday be a Rest??
I feel compelled to work out every day of the week. The Spark website motivates me do so. My own conscience urges me on. The only part of me that rebels is my body (well, to be honest, my mind, too!). I'm going to be forced into a day of "rest"... Read more
Finished the first week of Chemistry class. School canceled the lab for TWO weeks. Took a walk in the park with pup and wife. Did a great workout on treadmill, bike, and core exercises. Great dinner. Beautiful day. Muy bueno.... Read more
New Day, New Challenges
So, in addition to beginning my Spark weight-loss program at the end of December today I started school again. 2nd semester Chemistry on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. Not only am I working on my body, but I'm straining the brain. Call me ... Read more
Ready for a Small Break
Worked out on the treadmill at lunch and couldn't beat the program "Rolling Hill" still. Kick's my butt! But hung in there with the inclines - just reduced the speeds. Did my yoga in the evening, but that's it for today. Body could use some rest... Read more
A Moment's Hesitation
So, at my lunchtime workout on the treadmill, I kind of wimped out at doing the "rolling hill" portion of the incline walk/run. I substituted interval jogging on a flat slope instead. Then when it came time for the evening strength training, I h... Read more
I'm happy about a few things:
1. Exercised restraint at lunch when it could have gone BAD!
2. Got my exercise in during the day and evening. Very good day.
3. Stayed within my calories today.... Read more
Damn those appetizers
So, went to a Mexican restaurant with my wife (she was craving some Mexiccan food). Looked thru the menu and didn't much like what I saw. Saw one tuna salad thing that i SHOULD have ordered, but thought I was being pretty smart just ordering the... Read more
Good Sunday in January
Day started off a little slow - didn't feel in the "mood" to get moving. Started off with a 30 min trip on the treadmill. Hung out for a little while then got my strength exercises done. Then, rather than watching TV and wasting time decided to ... Read more
Still Have A Lot to Learn
So, now I have two entries for the same day. Didn't know I should have set my local time for this website. I keep learning new stuff about this site every day!... Read more
Had two social events to attend today. I'm NOT the most social person around -- enjoy my quiet time at home doing the things I want to do. But kept a positive outlook and had an exceptional day, all in all. Did celebrate with some extra cookies ... Read more
1st Goal Met
Had my annual physical today. Last couple (or is it few?) years my doctor has been on my case to lose weight and go on cholesterol meds. Every year I ignored his recommendations until THIS year. He was surprised to see how much weight I dropped ... Read more
