Monday, February 12, 2018      1 comments

Well - after a long time struggling I've finally achieved the first goal weight I'm striving for. Yeah - I got close a couple of years ago (about 165.6 or so) but I never quite achieved this specific weight. ... Read more

Slowly but surely my muscle pull in the back is healing. I have been able to get back into the gym on Sunday and yesterday (chest/tricep workout on Sunday and back/bicep workout on Monday). I've also been walking 6 miles (roughly per day) and ... Read more

I went to the gym last Friday afternoon since I got off work early and had finished cooking and getting everything ready for Shabbat. So, I treated myself to a workout at Anytime Fitness (the JCC would have taken too long to get there and get b... Read more

Stepped on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh-in. I had expected to either stay at the previous weight from last week (173.4) or gone down a little. I went UP! 177.4! I don't understand how either. I worked out at the gym 4 times th... Read more

I'm still not running yet - I want to give my hamstring as much time to heal as possible. But I've been focusing on other workouts. I've got a 6-day weight routine (3 days on/1 day off - but cycling with different exercises so that it doesn't ... Read more

Seems like I've been struggling the past few years with pervasive injuries. In 2015 it was my right calf. Last year I was lucky - I wasn't injured. This year - it's my right hamstring. I have NO idea how I injured it. I was in Chandler Ariz... Read more

After taking time off to allow my left ankle to heal from WHATEVER it was that was bothering it (after numerous trips to the orthopedist, x-rays, MRI and blood work - the doctor was unable to pinpoint the source of the problem) I've finally gott... Read more
Closing in on my primary goal
Monday, March 18, 2013      2 comments

I am now 1.8 lbs from my primary weight loss goal. This feels fantastic as I haven't been this light since I was in college and I was bike racing. I feel great and am getting more charged than ever to push on towards a secondary goal I set for... Read more
Update on my foot
Thursday, January 24, 2013      0 comments

So it turns out that the pain completely subsided before I even got to see the podiatrist (go figure!). No idea what the cause was - potentially an injury to the fat pad over the calcaneous bone of the left foot or a pulled tendon from when I d... Read more
Another Year - Another Injury

This year started off right - and wrong. I started at 173 lbs and set myself a goal for dropping down to 165 (and the eventual hope of reaching 154). I was going to the gym in the mornings - running three times a week in the afternoons (regard... Read more

This morning, I woke up and did the usual weigh-in. I'm very pleased to say that I'm down another 2 lbs to 182.6 lbs - the lightest I've been since before I got married over 15 years ago! It's been a tough few months (3 months later and 21 lbs... Read more

So, this past Friday I went to see the Orthopedist with the MRI scans of my left knee. The doctor looked over the images with me and said that he doesn't see a stress fracture or a torn meniscus (although he noted that the radiologist did note ... Read more
