I'm worn out. I did all new machine work at the gym today, 30 minutes on the treadmill and actually tried the elliptical. I was only able to stay on for a minute and a half - that thing is no joke. But I plan to get my time up to at least 15 min... Read more

251.5 - I started the year at 250 and had gained 20 lbs by the time I found SP at the end of July. Last year, I gained and lost the same 5 lbs, going between 245 and 250 all year long. So I'm just about back at square one for this year and in a ... Read more

I joined two new teams today to help me get this exercise thing on track. Normally, I'd avoid a declaration like "I hate exercise", but I think my subconscious can handle this one. My shoes are in the car; my bag is packed and by the door. Becom... Read more

I finally went to the gym
Saturday, October 13, 2007      2 comments

I did a full workout and 40 minutes of cardio. I can do this 3 days a week and be out in under an hour. Fortunately, I've read several SP articles on strength training and don't have to rely on my personal trainer for information. Not one mentio... Read more
Scales are stupid

My first weight gain since I joined SP. 2 lbs - I know it's water because I didn't drink enough water all week and didn't control my sodium either. This is a reminder that I can't have an "off" week, I have to be diligent and on my job EVERY day... Read more
New detour on the way home from work
Monday, October 08, 2007      8 comments

Well, there is apparently no getting around it. The fully paid, lifetime gym membership that I haven't used in 10 years is going to have to be put onto my weekly schedule. If I get there, I'll stay there and do what I need to do. I don't know wh... Read more

I'm working on my visual collage, my vision statement and my motto. "I am my purpose" is my motto. I can't even begin to explain everything those four words mean. But I wish I had been my purpose a long time ago. Where would I be today if I ha... Read more

Pre-damage control
Wednesday, September 26, 2007      3 comments

I'm contemplating going to a taste-fest this weekend. I have no illusions about being able to stay within any goal range: calories, fat, carbs, sodium, will be all blown to hell. If I go. So what I have to consider is: how much damage will it do... Read more
