Leading a team
Friday, May 21, 2010      6 comments

An interesting thing happened while I was huddling with my teams today. When I went to one of the team pages there was a big message on it saying "Inactive Leader". It then went on to say that the leader of the team had not posted in 60 days, an... Read more
30 pounds down!
Thursday, May 20, 2010      12 comments

At my weigh in this morning I hit 185! Exactly 30 pounds lighter than when I joined SP at the end of September, 2009. I'm actually down 50 pounds from the highest weight I ever hit (230 way back in 2005 or so). The people and the resources here ... Read more
Journal and supplement update
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      3 comments

The journaling is proving interesting! I find myself being more careful about what I eat because I want to be able to see those positives in writing. I like the positive feedback of seeing how much of a calorie deficit I had for the day. I can't... Read more

Positive reinforcement!
Monday, May 17, 2010      6 comments

I forgot to mention in my review of the meeting that was in yesterday's blog that I got a lot of very nice comments from my case managers about my weight loss. Most of these folks I haven't seen in 2 years, so things had changed a lot. It was ni... Read more
Journaling and supplement trial
Sunday, May 16, 2010      5 comments

For the next few weeks I'm going to be trying an experiment. I am going to write (by hand, pen and paper - how old fashioned is that?) in a journal every day and also try taking a couple of supplements. Now, I'm not usually one to take supplemen... Read more
Packed and ready
Thursday, May 13, 2010      7 comments

So, everything is packed except for the last minute things I need to toss in after I use them in the morning. I have to get up no later than 3:00 AM in order to feed the dogs, get in a short run (have to keep my streak alive), shower, dress and ... Read more
Great advice!

Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog from yesterday! I got some really good ideas for things to take with me for my trip on Friday. One of my problems with traveling is that I use some protein supplements that are liquid, and I can't carr... Read more

I'm going to be traveling on Friday, so I am trying to plan ahead for how I am going to get my work out in, what to eat during the trip, and how to avoid the pastries and other things that are not in my eating plan, but that are sure to be at th... Read more
Mothers' Day - not a great day for me
Saturday, May 08, 2010      8 comments

I enjoy getting my wife something for Mothers' Day and thanking her for all she did to raise our wonderful son. He is 32 years old now, and lives a long way away, but we are proud of how he has done in life. My own mother is another issue. I lov... Read more
Post-Event Problems
Friday, May 07, 2010      8 comments

It seems like every time I run a big event, I have trouble with my diet for awhile afterwards. This week has been no exception. I have had a lot of trouble staying on plan, and that hasn't been helped by the fact that I have been extremely busy ... Read more
500 Days!

Today marked 500 consecutive days that I have done my morning workout without a miss! My streak started on December 23, 2008, and I'm hoping to keep it going for a long time yet. Having a long streak going is a great motivator - I really don't w... Read more

I drove up to Prescott, AZ, on Friday afternoon, and checked into my hotel. It was about 4 miles from there to the start point for the race and the host hotel where the packet pick up was held. Once I had dropped my stuff at the hotel, I drove d... Read more
Survived Whiskey Row!
Saturday, May 01, 2010      9 comments

So, I made it through the most difficult half marathon I have ever done today - and suprisingly enough, I did it in about the same time I have been running them recently! I'm a little too sore and tired to write my whole race report this evening... Read more
