Temptation....and peer pressure!
Well I can resist anything but temptation....and peer pressure.
So there are actually more people I know at this conference than I expected, some folks I haven't seen in quite a long time....and when we get together, as hard as we are at it... Read more
Work for your Food!
Well I walked out the door of the San Antonio airport and felt like I had crawled into a convection oven!
It was a 104 and humid! What is up with that?!? I could barely remember my name let alone the Alamo.
Anyway, I made it here on ti... Read more
Travel, Travel, Food, and Trouble...fat does burn and sweat does bubble
OK, so I'm pushing the literary allusion meter a little to hard with the title, but I'm home just long enough to do some laundry, ride the bike, get in a blog entry or 2, and re-pack, so I winged it
I was in Albuquerque Thursday & Friday. ... Read more
Wise dining choices today....road trip tomorrow!
Well I had a good day of meetings with my boss today during his visit. The schedule threw off my normal eating routine; SWMBO usually packs me sandwiches that I can eat during the day. They total 800 calories, so I normally have another 800-1000... Read more
Dinner with the boss....a low cal success!
So my boss came in to town tonight from Las Vegas, so I took him out to dinner with a few of my division chiefs to a local restaurant where I'm good friends with the owner.
What amazing progress I have made in 6 months!
As I look back ... Read more
The Joy of Cycles!
OK, OK, so 2 days in a row I'm going to blog about bicycling....I'm excited, what more can I say.
Here's the deal, bicycling for me is such an enjoyable workout. I loved running, but for me, running was always about timing, distance, and en... Read more
Biking for Speed!
I love going fast...really, really fast. And that's the joy that bicycling gives me when I really get in the groove....like today.
As some of you know, I was an adult onset runner, coming to enjoy distance running late in life (trained and... Read more
My God, is it true....I really haven't blogged in a week! Good golly, Miss Molly, that's how it starts....the slow, insidious process of veering off track.
But fear not intrepid readers, I've been on Spark People every day, logging food, ae... Read more
Tape measure victory!
So I was at the gym early this morning, and while I was there, I cruised by the admin office and on a whim asked them to measure me up some.
I was pretty flabbergasted to tape in at 35" on the waist measurement! Pretty darn cool I tell you... Read more
Blogging during a healthy lunch-time break...what a concept!
So it has come to this....I scamper off during my one-hour lunch break to wolf down a healthy lunch salad (details below....I know you can't wait) and to blog about the experience on Sparkpeople.
Truly, I am a sick man!
As usual, a fai... Read more
Cruising to Alaska!
Well this was a very nice Father's Day. At times relaxing, at times busy, good family time (even though I had to spend an hour on the phone for work), then a nice dinner on the patio, and the inklings of an idea that got my creative planning jui... Read more
"Wind Always Blows in Your Face"
Quite the busy day today. Tons of meetings in the AM, a lunchtime bike ride, more meetings in the afternoon, post-work gym time for ST, then a dinner down the street for some friends moving away.
I did it all, minus the gym time. My 90 minu... Read more
So I'm not sure what'a going on here. I haven't been doing things THAT differently lately (other than having salad for dinner 3 days in a row over the weekend). Somehow, I am losing weight. And it's not just the scale. Today I had someone at wor... Read more
Nothing Good Comes Easy
I'm glad I have a trainer. There are days like today where, if I didn't have a standing commitment to be at the gym, I'd shirk it off. Even if I had made it there, I'd have done a less vigorous workout.
But I made it to the gym at my allott... Read more
Pot Luck Success
Every now and then I have to navigate a tricky eating regimen at work. Most days are great. SWMBO makes me 2 sandwiches to take in and I eat 1/2 a sandwich every 3 hours or so. This and a piece of fruit get me to dinner time where i can eat anot... Read more
