Worth More Than Your Weight
Wednesday, February 20, 2013      4 comments

This post is not for me. At least, not for me, now. As I blogged earlier today, I was up 4 pounds this week according to the scale, and that's OK. But it wasn't always OK for me. Once upon a time, when I was just starting out on this "journey", ... Read more

Over on Dailymile today, the Dailymission was: "What would you say is your primary source of motivation?" This question has been done to death, but it bears repeating. My primary motivation? To be less like the top 6 pictures, and... Read more

Do you eat your beets? I never really at them all that much until this year. But they are one of the alleged "superfoods" and are chock full of goodness - folate, manganese, potassium, fiber, copper, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and all kind... Read more
You Can't Always See It
Thursday, December 13, 2012      5 comments

It's easy to get down on yourself when this journey isn't going exactly as you planned. But stay the course. Real change takes time, and success isn't always something that you can see. Next time you get in a rut, and maybe it seems like everybo... Read more

I Never
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      8 comments

Most mornings I begin the day with some black coffee and push-ups. Lately, it's been 75 push-ups. Some days, I bang out 100. I've gotten to the point where I can do these without stopping. But it has taken a long time. I've started and restarted... Read more

I finally wrote a few words about the 50 mile mountain race a couple of weeks ago. If you like long-winded race recaps, have at it! =)

Surely these shirts run big
Friday, September 07, 2012      10 comments

The other night I swung by EMS on my way home to grab some nutrition for today's ultra-commute (I am running to and from work - about 16 miles one way). While I was there, I checked out some t-shirts on the clearance rack. I grabbed one that loo... Read more

19 Percent

Down -4.2 lbs while on vacation up in the Adirondacks! Pretty excited about that. I ate sensibly and stayed very active all days - running up mountains and pacing my brother through the last few miles of his Ironman. That brings my 2012 tot... Read more

Operation "become a lean mean mountain running machine" update: Weighed in this morning and lost 3 pounds. That makes 37.8lbs on the year. This is about 17.25% of my 2012 starting body weight. About 25 lbs since switching up my diet to be m... Read more
Eat More Kale
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      10 comments

Over the last year or so we have grown to love kale. I used to find this green bitter and unappetizing, but we've found a few good ways to enjoy it, and now have it quite regularly. We make 'kale chips', saute it with garlic and onion, mix it in... Read more
