Thursday, June 04, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday I mentioned in my blog that I'm riding my bike much faster than expected at this time of year (yesterday I put in 15 miles at an average of 17.7 mph, which is fast for me). As I reflected on this yesterday, it struck me that the reason... Read more

I love cycling, it's really a passion for me. Every year I take a 5-day, 300-mile bike ride for MS research since my wife suffers with the disease, and every year I set a particular goal and strive to reach it. This year my goal is to achieve an... Read more

"Low Cal Monday"
Monday, June 01, 2009      0 comments

Monday is my one day off each week, and for the last several weeks I've been going very low cal on these days. I work hard from Tuesday through Sunday and thus I usually do a bunch of nothing on Mondays. So it doesn't make sense to me to eat my ... Read more

Lost Another Pound
Friday, May 29, 2009      2 comments

My main focus with SP is living a healthy life, and therefore weight loss is secondary for me. But I must admit that I enjoy losing pounds and I lost another one today. That makes 17 lbs since March 21, and about 33 to go until my goal. Long way... Read more
Wow, didn't gain on my trip!
Thursday, May 28, 2009      2 comments

I have been traveling for the last 10 days and haven't been near a scale. I exercised almost every day but I definitely overate as I was unable to completely control my environment--I did pretty well, but I know I overate. Well, I'm home n... Read more

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

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
