Fall 5% Challenge....must I really talk about me....
So I joined the Spark Fall 5% Challenge. Have I mentioned before that I'm a little competitive? Sometimes the best way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't.
In the lead up to the 24 Sept kickoff of the challenge, there are a numb... Read more
Back home....and prepping for the Fall 5% Challenge
Ah, home sweet home....
Well the planes ran on time today and we made it back home. SWMBO and #2 son were pooped, but they had a taste of what life is like on the road for me.
We landed around 2:30, got to the house about 3:00, did som... Read more
Day #4 on the road....winning the calorie wars
Well we finally finished up the last of our sessions here and are heading back home tomorrow ("Fixin' to get ready" as SWMBO would put it....she's southern gal married to a Boston yankee)
It's been a pretty decent, if incredibly busy trip, ... Read more
Eating On the Road Wars - Day Deux

Procrastination, High Intensity Intervals, Tabatas, and Packing!
Well I'm putting off packing as long as I can....soon my procrastination will time out and I'll have to get going, but until then.....
You see I'm taking SWMBO and #2 son along, and they are not light travelers, so once they get done, I can... Read more

All things in moderation....including moderation
I freely admit, I take things to extremes and have a tendency to push things to their limits. Most of my life that's led to a fair amount of success. Every now and then, I push a little too hard and need to re-evaluate.
After doing what re... Read more
Exercise: Intensity + Duration + Frequency = Goodness
Talk about a beautiful day!
We woke up to a cool DRY morning here in the FL panhandle. Temp in the 60s, clear blue skies, and NO HUMIDITY!
Happy, happy, joy, joy
So I stuck around the house this morning while SWMBO got ready for l... Read more
Duh, Winning....consistency in exercise works!
Well it turned into a busier labor Day than I had planned...but it went very well.

Tropical Storm Lee, Spy Kids, Hi-Intensity Interval Training, and the smartest $20 I've spent!
So, some changes are afoot!
I'm feeling pretty darn good and enjoying it. I decided to "re-commit" to Sparkpeople a few weeks ago, to work harder at living healthier (working out, eating right, logging it and blogging it) and it's not so ba... Read more
My Big, Fat Greek Lunch....and more Tabatas!
So who knew that there was a large enough of a Greek Orthodox population here in the Ft Walton Beach area to hold an annual Greek Festival!
Now I'm not Greek, but I certainly enjoy a well-baked phyllo dough stuffed with spinach and feta che... Read more

Well I took today off to make it a 4-day weekend....then I also decided that I'd take Tues-Fri off next week as well, so I'm about to enter 10 straight days off from work.....unheard of I tell you. It's OK though, I rarely get the full time off ... Read more
Peanut Butter stays at home!
Well I'm kind of glad this week is winding down. Lots to do, lots of demands on my time....and September is going to be a roller coaster. I'm flying to Virginia on Sept 11 (should be a hoot!), and then I'm on the road the rest of the month and ... Read more
Don't piss off your Personal Trainer!
Deter me once, shame on you (work)....Deter me twice, shame on me (I will not be deterred)
