So - had surgery about three weeks ago (actually almost a month now) and got a clean bill of health from the doc on Tuesday. He also warned me that the body de-conditions within 36 hours of stopping all exercise. So - take it slow getting back... Read more

An Odd Way to Gauge a Run

Sunday, August 12, 2012      5 comments

So - I've been running five or six miles on the weekends and three to four miles during the weekdays. And lately I've been keeping my shirt on for the entire run and then taking it off when I finish. So I've noticed how far down it gets soaked... Read more

Ready for vacation

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      0 comments

I can always tell when I'm ready for vacation when on Monday I'm happy and excited about the coming week, and by Wednesday I'm wondering "is it Friday yet?" :-) I still have today tomorrow and Friday to go, but I already feel like I put in a f... Read more

The perils of showing off

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      0 comments

So this past weekend my three year old was practicing her push ups - which mostly involve her doing a plank and then moving her hips up and down. :-) I was trying to show her how to do an actual push-up, and then to show off - as my wife put i... Read more

Mood Swings

Monday, June 04, 2012      0 comments

So - last week was one of the most difficult work weeks I've had in a long time. Lots of high profile things happening, lots of angst with a client, just lots going on. So why am I not dreading the coming week? I have another set of agenda it... Read more

Quiet Weekends

Saturday, June 02, 2012      1 comments

There is practically nothing going on this weekend at my house. Haircuts, a couple kid activities, but overall nothing. Wooooooohoooooooo! I need quiet and calm after one of the longest short work weeks I've had in a long time. Workouts, law... Read more

Double the workout

Wednesday, May 30, 2012      1 comments

So I had one of the worst days of my career yesterday, and missed my workout to boot. This morning I got up and did a half hour at the gym - upper body; and then came home and did a 35 minute Insanity workout. I really felt like I caught up. ... Read more

The weekend of our nutritional discontent

Monday, May 28, 2012      1 comments

I believe (this might be a guy thing) that I am genetically pre-disposed to hear the phrase "holiday weekend" and immediately decide to eat any crap that any fat, drunk, and happy relatives put in front of me. Processed hamburgers, Doritos, mex... Read more

One day before the long weekend.

Thursday, May 24, 2012      1 comments

Thursday is starting off well. Got up early, got to the gym on time, had an excellent upper body workout, got home, ate breakfast, and got everything entered into Sparkpeople - at it's just after 6 a.m. Wooohooo! Now one more day of work, and... Read more

Great Wednesday

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      1 comments

Started out the day sort of bad - kept waking up from 3 a.m. on until I got up at 5:15 to work out. Did the Insanity Max Plyo workout - it always kicks my butt, but the sweat dripping down my body felt awesome! Gave a presentation at work toda... Read more

Back to the Gym

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      1 comments

So - tried going back to the gym again this morning. Got up at 4:40 and was at the gym at 5:00 a.m. The last time I tried this about a month ago, I got there late, didn't really have a plan, and had a bad experience. Left feeling let down. T... Read more

Getting Back Into It

Monday, May 21, 2012      1 comments

So I've been bumming around for a week or more trying to decide what to do about working out. Between now and June 21 when I go on vacation to the beach, I'm going to do Insanity workouts most of the week, and two days of upper body workouts at... Read more

Short goals to get back on track

Monday, May 07, 2012      0 comments

So - I've been in a funk about what exercise regimen to follow now that my insanity workout has finished. Went back to the gym, but it doesn't feel the same anymore. Flirting with P90X, but haven't committed to doing it yet. This has translat... Read more
