Starting Over - again

Thursday, December 29, 2011      4 comments

Here I am again - only more downhearted this time. I had such good success, lost 50 poiunds, felt strong and proud - but when I fell, I fell all the way down. So, here I am again - back to 200 pounds, now 50 years old, with more physical aches... Read more

Two days in a row

This morning I ran. Not far. Not fast. My knees hurt already and I got a blister. But I ran, nonetheless. It's a good sign.... Read more

. . . and again

Monday, June 29, 2009      1 comments

Worked out this morning for the first time since . . . well. . . some time in the beginning of March. And if I don't exercise I just don't eat right. For me, the two are not just correlative; it's causative. And my weight shows it. The true ... Read more

Plan of Attack

Today I commit to begin again. I've been dancing around it for sometime. Tomorrow I'll. . . Later I'm going to . . . I could try . . . It's basically a just do it and I'm not. Today my scale showed my weight at 156.2. I've been hangin... Read more

Still mostly off track

Less hours at work this week, more like 11 or 12 a day than 16 and that's way better. And I didn't have to get in so... Read more

First, the good news

Sunday, March 29, 2009      3 comments

Last week I was promoted to Vice President at work. That sounds grander than it is since I'm one of several and there are two layers between me and the CEO (Senior VP and Executive VP). But I'm happy about it and since I wasn't expecting it, i... Read more

All or Nothing

Friday, March 06, 2009      3 comments

This week has been an incredibly stressful, challenging week. Wednesday, for example, I got to work at 8:00 am worked until 10:00 p.m. (ate lunch at my desk during a conference call), drove home and ate a bite and then worked until 1:30 a.m. on... Read more

Still thinking about yesterday's sprint triathlon practice session. Now I have the specific stats. I'm going to log them to preserve them for my future reference (and hopefully bettering). I can definitely live with this as my first attempt.... Read more

Fear of Trying

Sunday, March 01, 2009      1 comments

One of the goals I have stated for this year is to participate in a triathlon. A somewhat lofty goal considering my current running ability (inability?) and the fact that I have only swam once since the beginning of the year. Somehow setting t... Read more

Progress Report

Saturday, February 21, 2009      2 comments

Today's progress report from Curves helps me see that I continue to make progress if somewhat more slowly than before. That's to be expected but is still sometimes frustrating. My scale at home for the past two days has reflected 148.x. Today... Read more

Changes to photo gallery

Added some new pics to photo gallery. Still looking for newer good ones of oldest two girls but these will do for now. I just love going through old pictures, don't you?... Read more

Keeping the focus

Sunday, February 08, 2009      2 comments

My eating diligence has definitely slipped over the past couple of weeks. I'm still eating my vegetables and fruit and drinking water but I've chosen higher calories than my nutrition goals allow more often than not (so extra fat and sodium as... Read more

I can't attribute properly (sorry to those Sparkers who said two of these) but I wanted to save them. 1. Life doesn't begin 10 pounds from now. 2. Don't be distracted by criticism. Remember the only taste of success some people ha... Read more

Turn around, you're going the wrong direction!!!

Monday, February 02, 2009      2 comments

Last week I was totally on a pendulum swinging back and forth between eating under my calorie range and well over my range. Yesterday was not just high numbers but also food that was just bad for me. And I kept eating even when I knew I was f... Read more

Setting next goal

Saturday, January 31, 2009      1 comments

My next short-term goal is to weigh 145. The magic of that weight is that it will put my BMI at 24.9 -- within the healthy range. That's only about 8 pounds from where I currently am but I've been hovering around my current weight for a littl... Read more
