I hope my scale is being honest with me this morning..........

Saturday, August 29, 2015      9 comments

Because, if so, I'm now in the 350's! My goal was to hit this by tomorrow, and somehow, in spite of a couple set backs, I did it! I even got on and off the scale a couple times to make sure it wasn't a mis-read, because last reading was 366. But... Read more

*toot* Final grades for the semester have officially been posted, and I officially have a 4.0 for the semester! That will bring my overall GPA (from transfer credits) up to a 3.0 so that's awesome as well. For the first time in a ... Read more

Well, according to the scale on Sunday, I had gained 7 pounds since mid-way through last week, likely as a result of my crazy, bad decision filled Friday night. Luckily, when I weighed in today, about 5 of that had dissapeared - maybe 5 1/... Read more

Rough night!

So yesterday I went over my calorie range for the first time in about a month. Mostly from Tequila and beer. It was one of those "I'm just going to hop by the party for an hour, not drink, and then head home for a nice responsible nig... Read more

I've been hovering right around the same weight for about a week now. This is totally expected, from past experience I've learned that I tend to hit a wall about every 20-25 pounds. I'm not worried about it. I feel great, and I've reac... Read more

Ever get that feeling....

Specifically, the feeling like you should blog something, but have nothing that feels worthwhile to share? I do, constantly. For this same reason, my personal blog hasn't been updated in like 17 months. I feel like I have a busy life, ... Read more

The Old Man and the School

Monday, August 17, 2015      10 comments

Not a diet or exercise log, but just some musing on going back to college at 40. Education has been a lot like weight loss for me. There have been a lot of false starts, some small successes, and some pretty abject failures. When I was... Read more

When I first weight in at the beginning of this re-re-re-re-redo of getting healthier, I was 385. At at least one point prior to that (when I was weighing in just to torture myself even though I was doing absolutely nothing about it) I reme... Read more

Good day!

Let me lay down the reason why today was relatively awesome. 1. Made it to work on time, in contrast to the crapfest that was yesterday morning. 2. Things are picking back up at work, so I get to swing back into supervisor mode instead... Read more

Long Day: The Sequel.

10pm local time. I was up until almost 3am this morning doing homework and studying for finals. Because I'm way too old to be doing that kind of crap, I overslept this morning and was over an hour late for work. Ooops! Luckily my boss... Read more

Seriously, exhausted. 7:30-4:00: work. 4:30-5:00: home doing last minute homework. 5:30-8:10: class. 8:30-09:00: quick snack, home for 15 minutes to change into gym clothes. 09:10-09:50 - gym. All with a piercing be... Read more

I wanted to talk for just a moment about some things I've noticed improving after just a couple weeks of better eating, exercising more (or in my case, at all) and drinking lots of water. Here's what I've noticed, much of this due to my Fit... Read more

It was a tough morning at work today. Someone brought in Dunkin' Donuts for everyone. I politely declined, which was easier than it sounds because I like donuts but I don't love donuts. Then, another coworker brought me a delightful li... Read more

I helped a friend move today. He and his family were moving out of a 4 bedroom apartment to a 5 bedroom house. As you can imagine, there was a lot of stuff. Out of all the people who had been asked to help, only myself and one other pe... Read more

Pretty decent start

I'm now down about 12 pounds from when I started. A couple weeks ago I started tracking my food again. Saturday I started going to the gym for stationary bike riding. Yesterday I did the bike and 20 minutes of strength training. ... Read more
