Well, the Indian restaurant wasn't too much of a challenge last night. I only ate a couple bites of the salmon, avoided the rice, no fried stuff and had one small piece of naan. Still, I'm sure it was all pretty fattening. I put the food on my p... Read more

GRR it's always the same thing. After 2 or 3 weeks of clean eating and diligent exercise, I wake up one day and "forget" that I am working this new lifestyle. It's almost as if I have a complete memory block as I slip back into old bad habits.... Read more

I know it's only Tuesday, but it's been a great week so far and I'm pretty sure I can keep it rolling through the weekend. I've been extra careful about logging those BLT's (bites, licks, and tastes). Actually succeeding at eliminating them enti... Read more

Twice a week I drive my son to his evening Rugby practice and wait 1 1/2 hours for him to finish. Sometimes I go to the nearby grocery store if I need to shop. However, most of the time, I am tired and I just sit, or even sleep in the car. It... Read more

When I woke up today, I though it would be another day just like yesterday. I dragged myself out of bed at 5:15 to go to another ridiculously short circuit training class at the gym. I've been doing these for the last couple weeks. "30 ... Read more

With winter break coming to an end in a couple days, it occurred to me that I need a plan of action in order to stay on track on working days. I went to bed at 10 last night and this morning I actually got up at 5:30 and went to the circuit tra... Read more

Although the scale only registered a one pound loss and the clothes are still tight, I refuse to believe that the last 3 weeks of hard work were wasted. I logged long hours everyday in the gym and on the road. I tracked my food most of the time... Read more

I love today. It may sound selfish, but right now, it's all about me. Today is the first day of winter break for the community college where I teach. No classes for a month. What a nice treat to be able to go to my favorite workout class i... Read more
