DRC Half Marathon
Monday, August 30, 2010      0 comments

Signing up for a Half Marathon in November. I've only got 10 more weeks of training! I should be OK. I set a new personal record for distance on Saturday -- 10 miles non stop! Really only stopped because it was getting so late (well, that and a... Read more
Goal reached... kinda
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      0 comments

I set a goal to be at 12% body fat and weight 150 lbs by August 2. The actual weight was for the sake of having a target; I don't care so much about what it really comes down to. BF% was my primary aspiration. So I did my weigh in on Monday... Read more

I soooo didn't want to run last night. Between staying out too late and waking up too early, I hadn't gotten much sleep over the weekend. And I worked my bum off helping a friend move. I thought about calling that my exercise for the day and ski... Read more
No buddy for the Mud Quest run :(

My friend decided that he wouldn't run the Mud Quest with me in October :( I'm a bit bummed about running it solo.... Read more
Up to 4 mi

On Saturday I was out running. My goal for the day was a 2.5 mi run, but I really wanted to hit 3 mi instead. Turns out it wasn't that hard to hit 3 mi again; looks like I can do that with some consistency now. But I still had enough juice to pu... Read more
5K straight!
Tuesday, July 06, 2010      3 comments

Last month, I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k. I didn't run the whole way, but did pretty well, I'd say, for my first race. But last week I managed to run a full 5k in the gym, and then at home! Just a few months ago, I h... Read more
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
Monday, June 14, 2010      0 comments

My gym guy talked me into signing up for a 5k race last Saturday. I have to say I was pretty apprehensive about even having a go at a 3 mile run! Admittedly, I didn't run the whole way, but probably at least 2.5 miles of it with only I think two... Read more
Jailbreak Dash
Thursday, May 20, 2010      2 comments

A friend/coworker told me about this race in September called the Jailbreak Dash. It's a 3.8 mile race through an obstacle course, in the height of Texas summer heat. Most of my other friends think I'm crazy for trying... and I agree! But I've a... Read more
Running backwards

At least that's how I feel these past couple of weeks. I managed to lose around 3 lbs and 2.5 inches over a month, but in the past two weeks I've gained the weight back, and half an inch to boot. I'm working out hard five days a week, and trying... Read more
Making headway
Monday, April 26, 2010      0 comments

Did my weekly measurements, and I'm getting there... slowly but surely. To meet my weight goal (which I admit is probably unrealistic), I would have to lose a pound per week for 13 weeks. So far, with two weeks down, I've only lost one pound. No... Read more
Dragging a friend along for the ride

I mentioned to my buddy that I'm trying to get into shape for the dive trip to Cozumel... he accused me of trying to make him look bad :P So he's going to work on his physique, as well. So in addition to my primary goal (12% body fat by Au... Read more
First week almost down...

I've managed to get to the gym every day this week so far, and I've done some walking/jogging every day. That latter part is definitely an improvement for me because I hate hate HATE cardio. It's been about a year and a half since I've done... Read more
Time to start anew

Last week was so terrible for any manner of fitness or diet... I didn't get a chance to record much, and to be honest I don't think I'd have wanted to. Saturday was interesting... I ate pretty much nothing but junk food all day. It made me feel ... Read more

Time to ramble and rant. I've been true and faithful to this Spark thing since the beginning of June... three solid weeks. But now I'm having trouble keeping on the bandwagon. Since this weekend, I don't think I've been able to stay on trac... Read more

I got challenged to a cheesecake baking contest tomorrow by one of my coworkers. I'll be making a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake with lemon ganache. I'm pretty confident in my baking prowess, so I 'm not worried about winning the contest..... Read more
