Well, I'm up to nearly one year since I began this journey, and it will be about 4 months of maintenance too. January 1st for the former and January 2nd for the latter. I think I'm getting the maintenance thing down. I continue to track ... Read more

That line came up on one of my Podfitness workouts and got me to thinking about how a new lifestyle has its only finish line the day I die, but is my new state of living and going forward. Then I was running on the treadmill the other day t... Read more

Saturday, November 29, 2008      0 comments

It feels very important to me to start being able to take the training wheels off. I had honestly planned to exercise, but got busy today and just didn't get it done. Oh well, so there it is. I did track calories and did fine. It was a g... Read more

Today just had to be a no-count, no-track day...

On the bus home I REALLY listened to a song that I have liked for a long time, Playing to the Firmament by Dar Williams... it really told me how much I need to just let go sometimes and recapture some of the childlike wonder that is so easy to ... Read more
Back from Chicago... and I did okay!!
Wednesday, November 12, 2008      2 comments

Well I did the Infamous Working Without a Net (TM) Chicago Edition ... sort of incidentally and sort of by choice and I did okay. I pretty much stayed within calorie range by making the best choices that I could. I didn't get quite the level o... Read more

Today was recovery day. I purposefully stayed home from work to just take it easy... I would have been miserable and useless at work... I know that after a GI bug hits me I need a day to just get my strength back. I have neglected this fact to... Read more
