A small step back....

Friday, January 18, 2013      13 comments

Went to see my PCP today, and I was hoping that my hemoglobin A1C blood test was finally going to be in the "normal" range (5.6% or less). My last test in October was at 5.7, so I was THAT close! Unfortunately, not only had it not gone d... Read more

2013 Goals

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      10 comments

Some different goals for me in 2013: - Weight maintenance! I'm at 180.8 right now, and my PCP and Bariatric Dr both have indicated they do not want me to lose any more weight. So my goal is to stay between 175 and 185. - Running:... Read more

2012 was a very eventful year (aren't they all?), but there were some unique items worth highlighting: - Lost another 47 pounds, and am at 180.8. I still want to hit 179 and even maybe drop a few more to 175, but I'm in a very good spot w... Read more

Lack of sleep sucks!

So for those of you who followed my extended stay in the Denver airport, we finally made it to Philadelphia at 12:30AM Tuesday morning (we were supposed to arrived at 9:00PM the day before!). Our flight was not the only one to experience a dela... Read more

Fun times! Stuck in the Denver airport...

Monday, December 10, 2012      10 comments

There is nothing quite as fun as being stuck in an airport when flights are delayed! I happen to be stuck in Denver as I blog due to the weather on the east coast (specifically Philadelphia). The current delay is 3:10, and hoping it does not g... Read more

In the past few weeks, I've been able in training to get my 5K time under 30 minutes, but today was the big day -- my first official, chipped 5K race! And to add a little intrigue to this race, it was in Tucson, AZ, which is 1/2 mile above sea ... Read more

Always a pleasure to be in Arizona -- warm temps, sunny skies, etc. Today is my dad's 81st birthday, and we have a few things planned: - Lunch plans at a retirement community he is thinking he may move to . It is a very nice place, and I ... Read more

A good week...

Friday, November 16, 2012      4 comments

Last day on my business trip in RTP, NC. I am very proud of how I kept an eye on the calories and what I ate, kept up with my exercise routine (albeit at a MUCH earlier time of the day!), and overall feel great! I will sleep well tonight I thi... Read more

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

So far so good on my business trip this week. At midweek, but still following my plan: - Up at 5:00AM each day, in the workout room by 6:00AM. Had to deviate from my normal workout routine a little yesterday, as both treadmills were busy,... Read more

Monday, November 05, 2012      3 comments

Normally Mondays can be crazy, but since I have some vacation to use up before the end of the year, I started taking some Mondays off, and in some ways they are nicer to take off than a Friday. Caught up on my shows on DVR, will go do som... Read more
