People at gyms... and other fancy stuff...

Saturday, June 30, 2012      6 comments

I am kind of mystified by the behavior of some people I see at the gym... I applaud them wholeheartedly for being there... but the way they act sometimes confuses me and makes me wonder what the story is behind it. First are they guys who h... Read more

Two weeks ago yesterday I was told that I was going to act as AOIC (Assistant Officer in Charge) of my section and got a couple of hours of training the next day... only to find myself on Monday actually as the OIC (Officer in Charge) for the fu... Read more

It's been such a long week...

A really really long week. Just trying to keep my head above water. I haven't worked out much but I have gotten my eating overall under better control, partly because I have been so busy at work that I just didn't have time to eat. Wednesda... Read more

Nearly 43% done with my mobilization to Texas... ... I can't believe that much time is done so far ... I can't believe that I haven't blogged since March ... I can't believe that my weight hasn't shot up here ... I can't believe I ran m... Read more

How strange indeed...

I have recovered from my leg injury from a few weeks ago... indeed, amazingly so. I am still rebuilding, mind you, but my running intervals are starting to get longer and I am doing more of them without incident... But in tonight's run/walk wit... Read more

I went to the doctor today and they did an ultrasound on my leg and found no blood clot! I just tore a muscle in my leg, so it was fluid and blood rising to the skin from the internal muscle wound. ... Read more

I have been having quite the battle with evening snacking for weeks. My weight hasn't gone up more than a couple of pounds... but the upward weight creep is there. So last week I really got myself off to a good start and I was battling the sna... Read more

Just that extra step...

Sunday, January 22, 2012      5 comments

I guess one of my pet peeves of late is seeing people NOT going that extra step or people deciding that "item x" is S.E.P (somebody else's problem). Not so much where I work, but just in general. There is a guy who lives in my building w... Read more

Wow! Really?!

I don't have a great deal of time to write this, but I just had to! It seems everyone in my unit is trying to lose weight and they are all staying away from the evil CARBS! (Do you hear the ominous music building in the background?) I... Read more

I had a great run at the park today... except for a group of punk teenagers who were hogging the sidewalk... I ran around them and they started laughing at me. I have no clue why since I was minding my own business. I lapped them and then they... Read more

Great start so far!

Rather than a resolution, I have a goal for the year... establish that pesky morning exercise habit! Since I was off on 1 & 2 January, I didn't start on those days, but I did start this morning with a 15 minute yoga session with My Fitness Coac... Read more

Holiday overeating... but new start today...

Monday, December 26, 2011      4 comments

I have badly overindulged the past few days and have hardly gotten any exercise, but part of that is due to lack of facilities and an abundance of sweets and lack of willpower. The weather here has been awful for exercise and I don't have acces... Read more

Well, I have almost finished the first 2 weeks of my deployment. It's been a very busy and tiring 2 weeks, to say the least. Everyday seems to be a challenge in some way or another. Last week was inprocessing the base... basically getting che... Read more

Getting better everyday...

Last night I went out for the first run I have had since my back said Ouch... and it went fine. I only ran intervals since I figured a full out run of 2 miles wasn't the best idea. I managed to do 7 of my planned 10 3/10 mile intervals and I'm... Read more
