  • Getting focused

    4/23/2015 6:21:51 AM, by SPARTANJAI

    2 days of over 10000 steps. There would be a third day on there, but I had to have my FitBit off for a few hours while it charged so I was 1500 steps short. Going to see if I can make it 30 days in a row and starting to get focused on me!... Read more

  • Heartbreak Ridge

    4/18/2015 6:54:51 AM, by MRTHING2000

    I was flipping through the channels today and caught a few minutes of the movie Heartbreak Ridge. I think it is one of Clint Eastwood's best movies. He plays a gruff Marine struggling in his personal life. I saw this movie years ago, and its oddly familiar to me. I grew up with my dad as a N... Read more

  • Where I am at today

    4/17/2015 10:40:24 AM, by LIFE-FAITH

    I have been working on my health one day at a time... my thyroid is still OFF, my kidneys are doing ok (blood work will tell - I have back on nsaids for 3 months due to my back...), speaking of my back - when I was more than 14 days pain free - I posted my back is back to 100%, while the pirif...

    Sometimes the cure seems worse than the disease. Well, today's latest medical appointment for the daughter sort of surprised us. The scoliosis is currently being casted to correct it, though we don't know if it is doing much anything. I figured at best, it corrected it 'some' and at worst--it kep... Read more

  • Another gym session down

    4/13/2015 7:13:25 AM, by MRTHING2000

    Oh, all the times I said 'I'm too tired' and 'maybe tomorrow' really added up. And those days where I planned NOT to go to the gym, and still paid for a membership for months when I didn't go at all. Or I was too sore, so I didn't go. Sounds like a ton of lame excuses. And then the body turned l... Read more

  • Rebooting

    4/12/2015 7:28:12 AM, by MRTHING2000

    I haven't written in a bit, and that's probably because I didn't want to face some things. I didn't want to admit a temporary defeat. I didn't want to think about crushing stress or the chaos of the wifey going back to work. But after some readjustments, I finally am coming around. Sort of. ... Read more

  • where to start?

    4/8/2015 1:09:06 AM, by SKINNYMINDEE2B

    Well, things have been pretty chaotic for the past about 8 or so months for me and my family. Things seem to be settling down for us right about now, and I am still pinching myself to see if this is all real or just a dream! But that is also leading me to the realization that I need to start making ... Read more

  • Another yardwork/chore day

    3/28/2015 6:32:01 AM, by MRTHING2000

    The sunny weather helped motivate me to clean up the shed and part of the garage. It was a 2-3 hour long affair. And then a trip to Costco and the grocery store. I'm thoroughly worn out. Nutrition-wise it wasn't a great day. The pizza at Costco was a treat but I should have passed on it. B... Read more

  • Yardwork day

    3/27/2015 5:26:09 AM, by MRTHING2000

    I'm beat today. I spent about 2-3 hours doing lots of yardwork. Mowing, applying bug barrier around the house, fixing a gutter, and lots of other heavy lifting. I'm beat. Nutrition was good also. I stuck to the moderate-to-high protein and fueled the workout in the yard with a decent amount... Read more
