I haven't done this strength training routine for almost 6 weeks. It felt great, and I was able to go up a color on the resistance bands (green to blue for those of you that are familiar with B-lines) on nearly all the exercises. Corn cob pull... Read more
Back in the Pool
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      0 comments

I got back into the pool after 6 weeks away today. Part of it was working too many hours and not having time. Part of it was wanting to avoid the scale at the YMCA. My weight today was 172 lbs.--exactly what I thought it would be. I have a w... Read more

I enjoy sharing some of the inside terms/jokes/stories from the medical field. A "Princess Shift" usually refers to a shift of 4 hours in length. This is uncommon among all practitioners but may occasionally happen within nursing staff when on... Read more

My brother and sister-in-law subscribe to this magazine and have nothing but good things to say about it. I am definitely intrigued, but I don't feel like subscribing to one more thing. Father's Day is coming up, so maybe... Read more

I'm really trying to focus on my form with these. My numbers aren't as high, but I feel better about how I'm actually doing each pull-up. I did manage 106 this morning (along with about 50 minutes of legs). My personal best is 112 in an hour.... Read more

Friday, April 24, 2009      0 comments

I'm looking forward to lawnmowing season this summer. It's an enjoyable activity and burns a few calories. I even volunteered to mow our church's lawn in May when I have a few days off. Looking forward to warmer weather....... Read more

Sleep over exercise
Wednesday, April 22, 2009      0 comments

On the days that I work, I have (or my body has) decided that sleep must win out over exercise. Usually my schedule allows me to get to bed early enough that I can get up early to exercise. Occasionally, however, meetings or other obligations ... Read more
Daily Choices
Tuesday, April 21, 2009      0 comments

I'm trying to focus on how each little choice I make can either work for me or against me. For example, for the soup I'm making tonight I picked the turkey kielbasa sausage. It had 5gm of fat per serving--the beef version contained 15gm per se... Read more

Thursday, April 16, 2009      0 comments

I've recently decreased my strength training from 3 days/week to 2 days/week. I'm going to do this for the next 100 days or so to see if it makes a difference in my lean body mass. I'm unsure this far into it (2 weeks) if it will yield greater... Read more
