It's Official: My first sub-30 minute 5K!

Saturday, December 08, 2012      9 comments

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

Friday, December 07, 2012      5 comments

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

Finally broke the 5K in under 30 minute barrier this morning -- 29:55!! Not much more to add, except to say I am one happy camper!! emoticonRead 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

Midweek Report (on the road)

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

On the road again...

Monday, November 12, 2012      4 comments

So far so good on my business trip. Flight from Philadelphia to Raleigh on time and actually arrived early into Raleigh, nice dinner (and reasonably healthy) at the hotel last evening, up at 5AM to get a workout in (state of the art equipment!)... Read more

Preparing for first business trip in 6 1/2 years...

Thursday, November 08, 2012      7 comments

While my DW and I have traveled a few times since I had my WLS last year, I will be taking my first solo trip next week, and a business trip on top of it. While I'm not trying to obsess about it, I am doing a fair amount of planning, such as ma... Read more

Relaxing Monday

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

Sandy Update

Tuesday, October 30, 2012      19 comments

We survived Sandy! We did end up getting over 8" of rain, as forecasted, but we were spared the really bad winds that folks in NJ, PA, and NY got -- peak wind gust was around 60 mph. For those of you who are professional or amateur meteorologi... Read more

Sandy

Monday, October 29, 2012      11 comments

Sandy has made her presence felt last evening and into this morning. Over 3" of rain so far, with the forecast of up to 8" possible. Amazingly enough, that amount of rain would still not get us back to "normal" for the year -- we are close to ... Read more

Motivators

Thursday, October 18, 2012      8 comments

A few things that have happened in the past few days will keep me motivated to continue pushing to better health: - Weight: 181.6 at home, scale at the Dr office was 182, pretty much splitting hairs. Goal is 179. I do like the scale ay m... Read more

Getting closer...

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      11 comments

I'm sure I'm speaking for LOTS of SP'ers, but I sure do love a good weigh-in!! Today's weigh-in: 181.6!! Nearly a 3 pound loss since my last weigh-in, and more importantly, that puts me 2.6 pounds away from my goal weight of 179! The "ma... Read more

Feeling much better today...

Monday, October 08, 2012      4 comments

Not sure exactly what it was, but definitely felt out of sorts yesterday (Sunday). Was clearly sore from mowing on Saturday (did all of the back yard, which is close to an acre), was not thrilled with the colder air that moved in, and in spite ... Read more

Why is it not good to skip a meal!

Saturday, October 06, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday (Friday) was one of those crazy good days...worked in the AM, then as soon as I finished a conference call at noon, we packed the dogs in the minivan and headed to the beach. We were in such a rush that I forgot to get some lunch, whi... Read more
