Underemployed does not equal weight loss
Friday, August 10, 2012      3 comments

After having my job eliminated in late June, trying to keep focused on anything has been a challenge. On the positive side, I get to spend more time with my family. The negative side is obvious and there's no need to get into that here. I keep t... Read more
Hiking it!
Tuesday, July 31, 2012      1 comments

Having moved back to my hometown, I've been able to get reacquainted with the hiking trails that are nearby and accessible. Sharing the experience with my son has been exceptionally gratifying. But the real bonus has been the exercise value of i... Read more
Treadmill Fodder

With total credit going to NEALP81 for the idea, I wanted to post my playlist online. I tend to want to rock out while I'm pushing it and I'm a little old school. Here's my iPod playlist. I set it to shuffle every time so there's no sense t... Read more

Father went into the hospital for a battery of tests yesterday. I spent the whole day there keeping my mom company. With all of the stress involved, I just chucked the whole idea of diet and eating smart out the window. I gave myself a floa... Read more
Pushin' it

Whew. I'm beat. Got back up on that treadmill again, despite my body's protests, and pushed the limits. This time, I set my Nike+ to 5K and knew there was going to be a point in which I walked. The question was when. Was I going to beat yes... Read more
Could the plateau be over?
Sunday, August 09, 2009      2 comments

For the record, I've never had a weight loss plateau before. Having it hover around the 13 pound loss mark for almost a week wasn't pleasant. Then, all of the sudden, I hit the scale this morning and...poof...15 pounds gone. More better. Su... Read more
Revvin' it up!

Wife and I just picked up Wii Active. It's kicking both our butts, and that's a good thing. We needed our butts kicked. Of course, today I had to show off and hit the treadmill for an extra 10 minutes after the workout. After a very nice we... Read more
Trouble staying on task
Thursday, July 30, 2009      1 comments

Damn snacks. All day long, mind your food. Track what you eat. Try to fit in exercise. I'm even adding in more fiber (e.g. Benefiber in my water) to feel fuller. When those around me aren't making the best choices, I've been staying on cour... Read more
Killer treadmill session
Sunday, July 26, 2009      1 comments

I wasn't going to push it. I was just going to take a nice stroll on the treadmill for fear that I would hurt my back again. I did a little yoga to loosen up before starting. But then, around the 1/2 mile mark, the tunes on my iPod got me j... Read more
More better

New client mailed deposit check. No real mistakes to be had with my eating habits. Didn't get a chance to exercise. Finished meeting of Chamber of Commerce board. Felt energized afterward. Now working on something creative.... Read more
Whew! What a (rough) day!
Tuesday, July 21, 2009      0 comments

Meetings with prospective clients all went poorly. Much of the day spent driving around. Check engine light came on. Car now in garage. Had to take bus home. Rained all day. Glad I'm finally in my pajamas.... Read more
300 miles today - driving
Monday, July 20, 2009      0 comments

Had to do a crazy trip to Boston today. Drove up to deliver a video tape to New England Sports Network. Then had to drive all the way to the CT shore for a meeting before heading home. Over 300 miles. I'm finding when you're on the road and... Read more
Treadmill activity

Finally got back up on that treadmill. Back's still killing me so I went much slower than I typically do meaning I burned fewer calories, but at least I got on it.... Read more
Losing weight too fast?
Friday, July 17, 2009      0 comments

I've been doing some reading, both on SP and other sites, about weight loss. A good goal is about a pound a week. I'm starting to get worried because I've been on a pound per day streak. My appetite is almost gone until I finally make myself eat... Read more
Oh, the pain!
Thursday, July 16, 2009      0 comments

The lower back pain I was feeling yesterday has turned into a real pain today. Barely able to move. Did a slow 1 mile walk just to try to stretch it. Doesn't feel any different. Now, where's that heating pad?... Read more
