Monday, May 09, 2011      5 comments

"I never regret working out, but I almost always regret not working out" Those aren't just words to me. They're a constant reminder to fight laziness & complacency. Well today was an uneventful travel day, which was good, because I'm ... Read more

The Bus to Fat City

Sunday, May 08, 2011      5 comments

OK, so this is going to be a tough blog. I'm up 3.5 lbs from my low of 187....190.5 is what the all-knowing scale blinked back at me as a matter of fact. Was it a surprise? Yes and no. I've seen my daily calorie totals creeping up sin... Read more

Cinco de Mayo Celebraciones!

Thursday, May 05, 2011      3 comments

WOW! What a Cinco de Mayo it was! Miraculously I think I stayed within my calorie range...mostly through sheer good luck....or maybe because SWMBO started doing the Macarena and swayed me away from the empenadas and stuffed jalapenos. And there... Read more

Thursday, April 28, 2011      4 comments

Well it felt very nice to have a "normal" food day today...yesterday's burger blowout still makes my brain reel. But I stuck to my well-spaced meals throughout the day and had a nice dinner that kept me well within my calorie range for the day. ... Read more

Cheeseburgers---Harbingers of Doom!!

Wednesday, April 27, 2011      7 comments

Cheeseburgers are just plain evil...I think some sect in Ouagadougou view them as harbingers of doom that will precede the end of the human race. Of course I had one today for lunch. One Thousand Sixty calories! That's right 1060 calor... Read more

Hard-Scheduling the Workouts

Tuesday, April 26, 2011      8 comments

Sunday, April 24, 2011      4 comments

Some days the stars really do align and things just click....although you still have to do a lot of leg work (SWMBO tells me to let God steer the bike while I pedal!) So for some time I've been working on how to work a big screen TV into ou... Read more

Solid Muscle

Friday, April 22, 2011      4 comments

Did I mention before that I'm a people watcher? Not in any creepy way, but I pay attention to how people hold themselves, how they walk, stand, sit....basic body language. At work it helps me understand what people are like, what their confiden... Read more

Avoiding Future Guilt

Thursday, April 21, 2011      3 comments

Ahh, back home in springtime. Omaha was cold & wet, interspersed with hail & ice....downright unnatural I tell ya'. Stepped off the plane in Ft. Walton Beach to a tropical 78 degrees and a tropical 85% humidity.....I know, I know, 3 months fro... Read more
