Long Day
Friday, December 18, 2009      0 comments

Had a lot to do today and ended up working for 17 hours--wow, more than two day's work in one day! But it's been a good one and I'm so glad to have serveral things off my shoulders. So I'm tired but very thankful to the Lord.... Read more
Making Due with the Wrong Tools
Wednesday, December 16, 2009      1 comments

I'm doing a job at my house today for which I don't have the right tools. The problem is that I can't afford to buy the right ones or to hire someone who has them so I'm stuck trying to make a way. This is frustrating me! But such is life. If yo... Read more
Not Sure I Can do a 5K
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      1 comments

I've been progressing through the Couch Potato to 5K plan for several weeks now and I'm up to three five minute runs with 2.5 minute walks in between. But my shin muscles have been hurting so bad when I run--not the bones but the muscles--that I... Read more

Sleep is Good
Saturday, December 12, 2009      2 comments

Sleep is good, I didn't get enough of it last night and therefore it's value has increased in my eyes! I have to "push through" this day and hope for a better, longer nights sleep tonight.... Read more
Down Another Pound
Friday, December 11, 2009      2 comments

It feels so good to have reversed the holiday season trend of weight gain. This was the time I feared when I began SP some 10 months ago, namely, the time when I lost motivation and stopped caring and just put the weight back on. But thanks be t... Read more
Losing that Winter Weight Already
Thursday, December 10, 2009      1 comments

I gained a few pounds over the last few weeks and quickly decided that was NOT okay. So I've been working hard and, thank God, I'm down several pounds already. I'm still 3 pounds away from where I was but I'm halfway back and that feels REALLY g... Read more
I Ran for 15 Minutes
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      3 comments

I rode my bike 2,500 miles this year so I'm not exactly out of shape, and yet I've always hated running and have never been able to run for very long. As I thought about how to keep myself in shape this winter, I decided to take up running (indo... Read more

I haven't been able to workout for the last few days so I decided to have a long one today and boy was it fun! I jogged/walked for 30 minutes, did 1 rep of 20 different exercises (freeweight & machine), and then rode the stationary bike for 60 m... Read more
Good Movie, Bad Decision
Friday, December 04, 2009      3 comments

My daughter and I watched a great movie last night, "The Blind Side." As good as the movie was, my decision at the theater was bad--I had a small popcorn (no butter at least), a box of junior mints, and a large icee. Oh, what was I thinking? I g... Read more
Daddy-Daughter Date Today
Thursday, December 03, 2009      0 comments

Each week I take my 15 year old daughter out on a date. I've done this since she was very little, maybe 3 or 4. Oh how I love her! It is such a privilege to be her daddy and to watch her becoming a young woman now. How I pray that in my love for... Read more
