Monday, I'm counting as day 2 in a row...
... even though I didn't stay in calories...
It's hard to explain, but suffice it to say I mystery shop a restaurant chain and sometimes literally cannot choose what I can order.
But I was in every other range. So I took a good 50 m... Read more
Restart... day 1... and a new week.
I didn't fall off the wagon until Thursday evening and I only stayed off, sort of, until today. So 3.5 days good last week and I got a great restart today.
It's not about perfection but taking one day at a time to rebuild ... inch by inch... Read more
4 days... taken one at a time can teach you a lot.
The last few weeks of May, my eating and exercise just fell apart. I wasn't feeling bad per se... maybe I was depressed, I really don't know. I was mostly just feeling lazy and I kinda decided I didn't want to care. Other than that... I was v... Read more
63 degrees and drizzly...
I went a bit over on calories today, but less than 100, so I'm not sweating it. I also got out and ran/walked at a 13 min/mile pace. It was nice and relaxed, running when I felt like it. It was enough to burn about 240 calories.

3 days of exercise so far this week and 2 days of being in range for calories. That is motivating. I have avoided the cake a co-worker brought in... and I ate the strawberries instead (fresh, no sugar).
I feel like I am getting some contr... Read more
...back on the horse...
Due to the travel and stress of the other week, I really just kind of put myself into "to heck with it" mode. Passing the APFT really has buoyed me up and fueled by zest for feeling t'riffic and all exercisey. That led to my running last eveni... Read more
The day AFTER the PFT...
What do I do? I go out and run/walk and keep a decent pace. Running is hard... but I always feel so good afterwards I feel alive and vital, like I could conquer the world single-handedly. Hooah!
Life is so much calmer this year than last... Read more
Long due for an update...
Eating and exercise have been kind of up and down based on what has been going on. Weight is maintaining fine.
My daughter got married and let us know by text message the next day... I was glad to have my trip to Philly for my niece's wedd... Read more
This hasn't been the best week in eating or exercise. Had a great start and then kinda fell off the wagon. I have been short sleep... and I discovered something... I eat when I am tired in a ploy to help me stay awake. I am not hungry, but I ... Read more
That was the weekend that was.
I didn't eat too badly on Saturday, I just ate a lot and was afraid to tally the calories. I did eat salad twice, so it's prolly so so bad as I thought. Didn't get any exercise in to speak of either, apart from a few sit ups and push ups... oh ... Read more
Well, I'm not quite down to the 23:42 for the 2 miles yet, but I did do it in 24:05 and that includes 2 running stretches of 6 & 3:45 minutes each and only one minute walking.
My sit ups are up to 38 and my push ups are well over 20!!

It was another long weekend, but it was actually great. Drill weekends kind of give me time away to be removed from the day to day grind. I like my unit a lot and and have a great time with the people there.
I feel strong and energized. ... Read more
bouncing back again and again and again...
That's life in maintenanceville... I'm not down or anything, but resilience and the ability to bounce back from a not so good day/week/month has to be a characteristic of many MaintenanceVille residents from what I have seen.
It just goes t... Read more

That is a picture of Neville, who was very loud, obnoxious, always wanting "meowt", loving, sweet, playful and huge. He had ears and feet that were huge as a kitten and de... Read more
