Well, it's that time of year where sometimes the weather precludes me from riding my bike outside--today is one of those days. It's 44 degrees, which is actually plenty warm for me, but it's raining and when I get wet and ride in 40s I start fee... Read more

This morning I read the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapters 60-66. These words from 66:1-6 in particular moved me: 1 "Thus says the LORD: 'Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me... Read more

Working Way Too Much

I've been working way too much lately and it's not good for the diet. I find it so easy to revert to old habits when I get this busy and I hate that. Thankfully, the next several weeks look much more normal and boy am I ready for it. I've worked... Read more

Going Backwards
Monday, October 05, 2009      2 comments

I'm not sure what's happening. I have been a little less disciplined about eating over the last two weeks due to unusual busyness but not much. I have been strength training three days per week which I have not previously done. I have been takin... Read more
