Oct 9 weigh in - Continuing to make headway
Weighin went good again today with another 1.5# loss. I am hoping to at least eclipse the 40 lb loss by my 6 month of exercise. Can't complain about it, since I'm keeping it off and working it down week to week again. Workouts are still very... Read more
Oct 3 - Just a normal day...
Weigh in day was yesterday and I was happy to have another drop in weight of about 2.25 lbs! It'll be exciting to get down past that next tens digit of 260. My original goal was to be down to 240 by mid Oct, but I'm happy with where things are... Read more
Sept 25th Weigh in....FINALLY!!
Made some headway this week. Finally broke that stupid 270 mark by about a pound, so lets hope that continues. There isn't any real probability that I'm going to make my 60# goal by mid-Oct., but I'm ok with that since i'm making headway in ... Read more
AARRGGGHHHH.....Sept 18 Weigh in
I HATE plataues!!! My weight has stabilized at 270ish(272 today). I am running on my non-training days now with Donna and I know I'm getting stronger. Donna had me do some .5minute sprints today at 10 deg incline. I did the first one at ... Read more
Weigh in day Aug 28th - Upper Body workout
Weigh in day wasn't much of a surprise. Very little weight change. However, I truly feel I am getting stronger and since I'm working with Donna, she records everything, so we know where I have been and where I am today. She had me do a pac... Read more
BodPod - Aug. 13th and Weekend Running
I had my BMI calculated with the BodPod today. It was an interesting experience. Painless and you don't get wet:)
The result was disappointing for me, as I was hoping my bone density and muscles were heavier, but it was pretty close to t... Read more
Wednesday Aug. 8th - Weighin
Donna is gone this week, so I'm on my own for workouts. I was able to weigh in this morning, but I did it after my workout, so it might have skewed it a little bit. I am PROUD to say I was under 270, so I'm 25# away from my October goal!!

July 30th - Measurement day
Measurement day today, went pretty well. I lost inches in places I wanted to and gained in places I want to gain. The only part that has been a little disappointing is that my weight is holding steady.
I ran 4 miles at 5.5mph at no incl... Read more
Tuesday July 17th - Been a While since last blog
It's been a while since my last entry. Things are still progressing nicely. Should eclipse 30# lost next week, which will be huge. I am right on track with my goal of 60 by mid-October. Then the last 30-40 through the winter.
I can... Read more
Tuesday June 26th Measurement day
Measurement day was pretty good. Lost another inch on my waist. Hovering around that 20# lost mark, but we had a wedding last weekend, so I suspect that didn't help. I feel good and we were doing some strength pushups and such today that the... Read more
Thursday June 14th
Strength training went good again today. It's tough with the weights, but I'm getting through it. The side planks are one of the hardest right now.
My breathing is a pain in the but. Last week, I was as comfortable just running and thi... Read more
Tues June 12th - Workout and weighin
Weigh in was kind of what I expected. I was back to 287, but I think I was dehydrated last Thursday AND I'm still on target to my weightloss goal. I'm actually right on the money, so that is good.
Strength workout was tough today. We d... Read more
I Made IT:) Update from the 5K
Well, Saturday morning came and the 5K went as good as I would have expected. I finished a little over 37 minutes. The morning was in the 70's, with wind and humidity. I have to say, I didn't sweat as much as I do inside, but some of that c... Read more
Thursday June 7th - Weigh in and last run before the 5k
Not really sure what's going on today, but Donna was going to start me out with some 4:1 and I did a 10:1 and 8:1 right out of the gate. We did 4:1 after that and some incline intervals. Heart rate was really going on the inclines, but I fel... Read more
Overslept Tuesday morning, so I did my workout in the evening. I felt sick all day and my joints ached, so not sure what was going on there, but I felt reasonable during the workout. Donna just had me do a few strength exercises and then wan... Read more
