BMI vs. The Scale

Friday, January 04, 2008      2 comments

I was reading one of Alleycat_'s blogs where she was discussing the whole BMI thing so I decided to plug in my stats to see where I stood. At my starting weight of 242 my BMI was 41.5, which is, of course, Obese. At my current weight of 209 my... Read more

Bicycle Heathy vs. the Evil Hilly

Tuesday, September 25, 2007      1 comments

Okay, I am starting to get a little nervous here. In three weeks I will be doing the Hilly Hundred bike ride. Last year I did a ride called the Flat 50. So what was I thinking registering for a ride that is twice as long and WAY not flat?!?! ... Read more

Anyone who knows me knows I love to nap. I can nap practically anywhere. I've suffered strange looking sunburns because of this talent. I especially love a nap when there's a little rainstorm. I light a few candles and take a little snooze..... Read more
