Damn those appetizers
Monday, January 18, 2010      2 comments

So, went to a Mexican restaurant with my wife (she was craving some Mexiccan food). Looked thru the menu and didn't much like what I saw. Saw one tuna salad thing that i SHOULD have ordered, but thought I was being pretty smart just ordering the... Read more
Good Sunday in January
Sunday, January 17, 2010      0 comments

Day started off a little slow - didn't feel in the "mood" to get moving. Started off with a 30 min trip on the treadmill. Hung out for a little while then got my strength exercises done. Then, rather than watching TV and wasting time decided to ... Read more
Still Have A Lot to Learn

So, now I have two entries for the same day. Didn't know I should have set my local time for this website. I keep learning new stuff about this site every day!... Read more
Social Day
Sunday, January 17, 2010      0 comments

Had two social events to attend today. I'm NOT the most social person around -- enjoy my quiet time at home doing the things I want to do. But kept a positive outlook and had an exceptional day, all in all. Did celebrate with some extra cookies ... Read more
1st Goal Met
Friday, January 15, 2010      1 comments

Had my annual physical today. Last couple (or is it few?) years my doctor has been on my case to lose weight and go on cholesterol meds. Every year I ignored his recommendations until THIS year. He was surprised to see how much weight I dropped ... Read more
Delayed Soreness Syndrome
Thursday, January 14, 2010      0 comments

So, here I've been working out like a beast for the last couple of weeks without any ill effects, but yesterday I hit the wall with leg soreness right behind the knees. My wife thinks it due to lack of sufficient stretching and she might be righ... Read more
One of those Days
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      0 comments

Exercised at lunch (treadmill) and it kicked my butt. Didn't feel like doing much the rest of the afternoon. Then went for a 3.5 mile walk with the wife and dog. Feeling DOG tired, but still have my strength workout to do. Hmm. Think I'll wait '... Read more
Making it Happen
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      0 comments

It's a "Monday" today, even if it is Tuesday. Work zipped by, lots to do and get done - same at home with family matters. Ended up scratching out Yoga tonight, but made the decision to get my miles in at minimum. I'm dedicated right now and tr... Read more
Snowshoe Success
Monday, January 11, 2010      0 comments

Went for a 2 hour snow shoe yesterday with my wife. Normally, I do NOT like snowshoeing because it kicks my butt. That, plus my wife (with her bad knees and all) can outpace me like there is no tomorrow. The sad thing is that I'm a former Marine... Read more
1st Bath of 2010
Saturday, January 09, 2010      4 comments

Sounds bad at first glance, however, the true story is I'm a shower-kind of guy. Never got into baths too much. But tonight my feet were pretty sore after so much walking/jogging over the lst few days so I decided a hot bath might help 'em out. ... Read more
Made a Mistake Today
Friday, January 08, 2010      2 comments

So, I decided to take a co-worker to lunch today (we were at a seminar) and I let him choose the place. Quizno's. I look at the menu and decide on the Club "sub" on wheat, no mayo and medium size. Didn't look like much and looked "healthy". The... Read more
Keeping track of calories
Thursday, January 07, 2010      2 comments

I'm learning quickly that you can only do so much with tracking calories. So many foods don't have a calorie count (either not included in the recipe) or the food list on here doesn't show it. So, I just make sure it's healthy and I eat a small ... Read more
Hey, Shoveling Snow Counts!!
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      6 comments

So, NOT a good day to take a walk outside (unless you like lots of snow and cold). But I made up with it by shoveling a half-foot layer off our two-car driveway and back porch. Thought I might quit at that, but decided to hit the indoor gym down... Read more
Yoga Man
Tuesday, January 05, 2010      1 comments

Did yoga for the first time ever this evening. (I'm 51y.o.). Went to the local mall with my wife for the class. Felt a little out of place as I'm the old school weight-lifting, running, gym workout type of guy, but wanted to do something "togeth... Read more
The Monday Blah's
Monday, January 04, 2010      0 comments

So, back to work after a couple of week's vacation. Could feel the stress level ratcheting up, of course. Plus, I didn't measure my lunch so I got a little more hungry (and cranky) than usual. Did go for a walk around the lake, so that helps. Pl... Read more
