One of my favorite bands, The Thermals, put out a new record this week! Woo hoo! And I've got tickets to see them at the end of the month. The Thermals are kinda low-fi, high-energy, melodic punk. Kinda. It's clever, catchy, rockin' son... Read more

Hey hey hey! One of the better Saturday morning cartoons in the 70's was Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. However, as a chubby kid named Albert growing up in the 70's, ... Read more
Today, I worked out. TWICE, baby!
Monday, April 06, 2009      2 comments

And that NEVER happens. I did 30 minutes on Wii Free Step, with weights, with the speed bumped up by 2. I was feeling it! And then I had a very light dinner. And then, after I had completely cooled down, I was ready for more! I... Read more
I have a sore Gluteus Maximus.
Monday, April 06, 2009      2 comments

After a good nose-dripping workout yesterday, the largest and most superficial of my three gluteal muscles, the gluteus maximus, is really sore today. In other words, my butt hurts. But I didn't really want to make that the title of my blo... Read more
*whispers* I bought some workout DVDs...

I don't know why, but I'm sort of embarassed to talk about working out. When I do talk about it, people are always very encouraging. And I know it's the right thing. And I know successful people work out. But I always feel like hidin... Read more
My body seems to love its Self-Destruct Mode
Tuesday, March 31, 2009      1 comments

Years ago, I started to put on a big belly. So I started secretly exercising and dieting. In TWO WEEKS, my co-workers had noticed a change, and commented on how I had lost some of my belly. I was all happy and proud. And then, for whatever ... Read more
Does anyone find cardio enjoyable?
Monday, March 30, 2009      4 comments

Yes, I know I need the cardio. But it's just not fun for me. The whole time I'm doing a cardio activity, I feel like I'm dying, and I'm doing math in my head, caclulating just how much longer I have to go, or how many reps I need to finish. ... Read more
I feel pretty good today
Wednesday, March 25, 2009      0 comments

I've been exercising about 16 days in a row now, and I must admit I feel pretty good. My energy level is higher, and my attitude seems improved. I've lost about 9 lbs now, which for some people might seem like a lot. But for me, it see... Read more
Pretty good weekend!
Sunday, March 22, 2009      0 comments

I was able to successfully avoid meat, cheese, and soda again this weekend. I'm trying to focus on living foods instead of seeds, rices and breads. The bread on my veggie sub was STALE today, and that was a bummer. Went for a bike... Read more
I dusted off the Nordictrack, and USED IT!

I've been using the Wii Fit's 'running' application, but it's kind of boring for me to jog in place. I thought about getting one of those single-person trampolines, but I'm not sure I'd actually use it in the long run. So, I went downstair... Read more
Wii Fit Triangle Pose. Are you kidding me?
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      0 comments

Can people actually do this pose? It looks crazy to me. I can't get myself into that position. However, Yoga is getting a lot easier, especially the one-foot exercises. I can retain my balance thru almost all of them. Even the Tree pose... Read more
Wii Fit Yoga's getting a little easier

I moved through all of the Wii Fit Yoga exercises today, and I was able to remain standing on one foot! Woo woo! I'm surprised that it's been so difficuly, but I'm glad to be at this point. Tonight I'm working my usual Roller Derby shift... Read more
Good Wii Fit workout last night
Friday, March 13, 2009      2 comments

Last night I did all of the Yoga exercises and Strength exercises that were unlocked. About 30 points worth. Some are easy, some are NOT. I'm not very good at the one legged ones. And I totally STINK at the pushup one. But I was glad ... Read more
Another day, another veggie sub.

It's kind of a meh day for me. But I stuck will good food, and will get to exercise when I get home. And I have nothing else exciting to say today.... Read more
First week weigh in: Up 2 lbs! Doh.
Wednesday, March 11, 2009      1 comments

Really, I'm not sure how it happened, after a week of salads and exercise. I feel like I did the right things this week. Oh well. In other news, I did my first 'Island Lap" on the Wii Fit. I got credit for 12 minutes. And my big ole man... Read more
