I'm what they call a "church planter" which means I love starting new churches. Four times per year I meet with a group of other planters for accountability, mutual learning, and strategic planning. Today and tomorrow is one of those four times.... Read more

Over the last several weeks I have become much more serious about adding strength training into the mix of my pursuit of health. I am an avid cyclist and understand all I need to about post-ride recovery meals but I've been wondering if there's ... Read more
Getting Close to 212
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      2 comments

I've been on a plateau for months now. Going from 242 to 218 was relatively easy, the pounds just flew off. I was feeling great, cycling like a maniac, eating well, and enjoying life. So I was pretty surprised when I realized that, though I was ... Read more

So it's Sunday afternoon. I had a great day of worship and learning and fellowship at church followed by a good lunch at a local Chinese joint (Chinese is my favorite), and then I laid down to rest, watch a little football (football's my favorit... Read more

Saturday, September 19, 2009      1 comments

Today's my day to workout the lower body but I'm not sure how hard I'm going to go because my core is still pretty sore from my workout two days ago. I've never intensely worked out those muscles before (abs, obliques, lower back) and at 42 I th... Read more
Oh the Core is Sore!
Friday, September 18, 2009      0 comments

I've been working my core at a fairly mellow level for a few months now and so I decided to fire up the intensity yesterday. I worked my abs, obliques, and lower back pretty hard in two separate sessions which was a good thing but I must say tha... Read more
Core Training Today

Last time I did a full core workout I was sore for 5 days! I guess that shows just how out of shape my mid-section is. I look forward to the day when I can tell a different story and today is one step in that direction. I plan to complete the fo... Read more

I do strength training 3 times per week: upper body then core then lower body. Today was upper body day and I pushed more than usual because I felt ready to do so. That felt good but I am a bit sore. I'm so excited to see what consistent strengt... Read more
Pushing Through a Lull in Motivation
Monday, September 14, 2009      0 comments

Ever since I started SP in March of this year I have been concerned about the time when the newness of it all would wear off, I would lose the intensity of my motivation, and would thus slip back into old habits. Lately I've been slipping into t... Read more

Sunday, September 13, 2009      1 comments

I sure am! Even though I live in Minnesota, there are only two seasons--no, I don't mean winter and construction seasons. I mean football season and not-football season! I like football season the best. The 49ers are my main team, rain or ... Read more

Had to Take it Easy with the Weights
Thursday, September 10, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday was an upper-body strength training day but I had to take it easy because my lower back is giving out on me. I probably shouldn't have even worked out but I made sure my back was very secure and I reduced the weights for each exercise,... Read more
