I've been on the road for 10 days now and I finally get to go home! I can't wait. As far as diet & exercise goes, it's been a pretty good trip. I haven't been able to weigh myself so I don't know exactly where I'm at, and it wouldn't surpr... Read more

I got a wild hair a while back and decided I wanted to learn to run. So I found this program on the web called "Couch Potato to 5K in 9 weeks" and today's my fourth day. Easy stuff, after a 5 minute warm up, run 60 seconds then walk 90 and repea... Read more

Well, I tried to ride for 106 miles in the desert heat yesterday (100+ air temps and much hotter on the asphalt) but I wasn't able to do it. However, I did make it 82 miles which included three trips up the 5-mile climb that is Highway 74--comin... Read more

I was going to abort my mission of riding for 106 miles today, because it's quite hot out here in Palm Springs, CA, but I decided to leave camp (Marriot!) at 6 a.m. and give it my best shot. I think I can do it, we'll see... Let you know to... Read more

I'm out in Palm Springs CA and boy is it hot! Over 100, 40 degrees hotter than Minnesota when I left. I was going to take a 110 mile bike ride tomorrow but I'm afraid I will not be able to hold up in the direct sun for that long so I'm going to ... Read more

I'm leaving town for 10 days and will be living (mostly) out of a hotel where I'll get free breakfast (and where I can nab some good snacks for the day) but I'm on my own for lunch and dinner. No fridge in the room so I'm trying to think through... Read more

I'm a pastor so I've been putting the finishing touches on my Sunday sermon this morning. It's about how God has responded to our sin, and the dire consequences thereof, but sending Jesus Christ into the world that whosoever would believe in him... Read more

Friday, May 15, 2009      0 comments

I can't believe it--I weighed in at 219 this morning! I've been straining to remember the last time I was sub 220 but I can't. I know it's been several years. So I had a good talk with myself this morning. The day I started SP (March 21 I ... Read more

I've been on SP for about 8.5 weeks now, and I just hit the 15 lb down mark! I'm so thankful to the Lord for the weight loss, but much more for the desire and discipline to steward this body well. I do find joy in losing the weight, of course, b... Read more
