Soon after we moved to Florida, SWMBO and I "adopted" a nearby Assisted Living Facility. The place is chock fill of mostly widows (a few guys live there too) and we decided long ago that we would do our part for the local community by volunteeri... Read more
So I must confess; I haven't ridden my bike since September.
No it wasn't the weather (winter is always like a perpetual spring here in the Florida panhandle), it's not like I was too busy (I am, but I've never let that keep me from working... Read more
So in my never-ending quest to balance diet, strength training, and cardio, I came upon an interesting fitness realization.
I've been doing variations of HIIT (Hi-Intensity Interval Training) for a while now, but som... Read more
So my first meeting today started at 7:30 AM. They were actually a series of working meetings, which I much prefer to the "sit back and listen to this presentation" type. Still, we were at it pretty hardcore for the next 9 hours.
Then a bu... Read more
So here's an interesting insight I had into myself today....I look forward to my Strength Training workouts all week....until I actually get to the gym!
Three times this week, as I changed in the locker room before hitting the weights, I ha... Read more
So today was fraught with all sorts of potential landmines. Tuesday is my designated meeting hell day for the week. It's where I run our staff meeting, finance meeting, personnel moves & hires, yadda-yadda-yadda. I cram them all into Tuesday mo... Read more
Well it's not like I really neglect my abs. Hell, almost every workout, every lift, every meeting at work, I make a point of contracting my abs to help build up my core. As a result, a few months ago, I stopped doing dedicated ab routines, figur... Read more
Ever had a day where nothing went as planned? (If you answered no to this, you may be on the wrong website)
Well my last 2 days have been a whirlwind. Aside from the usual crises of the day, my boss called me up 4 times today (He's in Las V... Read more
So I've been thinking lately.....should I teach a spin class?
Crazy, sure it's crazy! I have a day job that keeps me pretty damn busy, I travel about 2 weeks a month, I've got a family life that keeps me quite nicely occupied.....the last t... Read more
OK, I freely admit, I have been on a "No-blog" streak for over 2 months. Certainly, not a streak to be proud of and I have no real reason to have been on a blogging va-ca for so long. It's not like my life is any busier than usual (I'm still on ... Read more
OK, I'm pretty pissed off....at myself.....at the world in general.....at so called experts.
Here's the deal;
I had my annual physical done on Friday. Tuesday I went in and gave them a few liters of blood so they could have all the lab... Read more
Well needless to say, after yesterday's endurance strength training session, I was a tad sore this morning. ( www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=5094529 )
Don't get me wrong, it was a goo... Read more
So I really enjoy my workout schedule. I try to get in 3 days of ST plus 3 days of cardio in any given week.
Cardio varies between riding my bike (my supercool Trek which is also my avatar), working out on the elliptical, taking a spin clas... Read more
OK, I freely admit, these days I've been a blog slacker. No real good reason....it's not like I lack things going on....I'm mostly on a pretty stable glide path working, eating, exercising, life, yadda-yadda-yadda.
I've read a lot of blogs ... Read more
