A thought about motivation
Monday, February 14, 2011      3 comments

It's interesting to hear what motivated someone to start excersizing. It's never the same thing in the same way as someone else. We should be motivated in all things we do in life. Motivation makes hard things (like excercise) funner. For instan... Read more
Lack of pep or sign of patience
Thursday, February 10, 2011      2 comments

It seems to me that as we get older we believe that our energy level diminishes. I believe that is true to a point but most of the lack of energy comes from a lack of exercise. If we watch young children we can see that they are always running a... Read more
You want me to spend how much!!!

I found a way for me to really pay attention to calories. I view them in terms of money. And I'm somewhat of a penny pincher over many things. Sparkpeople says I get 1500 to 1800 a day. So I was in a gas station and started looking at the honey... Read more

Wednesday, February 02, 2011      2 comments

As I sit here tonight I am in heavy contemplation "how did I get back here again" I was doing great and feeling great. I got a job with a wonderful couple that like to feed people. When they would bring food in and ask if I wanted some I thoug... Read more

My spare tire is getting a flat
Saturday, June 26, 2010      2 comments

When someone had a fat stomach (like mine) about 20 years ago, people used to call it their spare tire. One of the ways I am gauging my success is checking my old size 34 pants. I put them on yesterday and instead of being 4 inches apart from bu... Read more
The Food Crutch
Saturday, June 26, 2010      2 comments

I have come to realize that I have a crutch. Whenever I am stressed, upset or tired I reach for a soda. I would tell people I have a 5 dollar a day coke habit but they would probably think I was talking about drugs. I would drink 6-8 sodas a day... Read more

I have my first 5k coming up next weekend on july 3rd. I sit here laughing because I am picturing what I will probably look like. I have tried the $150 shoes and with my bad knee they don't do any better than $15 shoes. The next day my leg hurts... Read more
Am I doing enough
Sunday, June 20, 2010      3 comments

It's a funny thing I guess as I get older, I did not seem to worry about myself when I was younger. I did not care how fit I was or how much I weighed. Now I look at the four pounds I lost and I worry "Am I doing enough, will the scale read les... Read more

I did not want to get up early this morning to walk. I was exhausted, my knee ached(torn meniscus) and the arch in my foot hurt from walking in the wrong shoes the day before. I then remembered someone's words my wife said once "If you can't fly... Read more
