The Battle Rages On ...
Friday, June 24, 2011      1 comments

This is such an epic quest for me ... finding a balance between having a good time and a fun life, and making healthy choices. I can be good when I'm sitting at home. It's a hell of a lot harder when you're out with friends having a good t... Read more

... and modest. :) Anyway, ever have one of those moments of clarity, when you suddenly realize how far you've come? It hit me this morning. I used to run to the corner store and back. Then I started running around the block. Th... Read more

... but I kind of think lying is a crappy trait in a person. Last time I posted here I was excited about a date coming up. I'm doing online dating, and even though I've had no luck so far, I keep trying. Last week was my first date from th... Read more
New Job, New Gym, New Man!?

New job starts on Monday, and I'm super excited about it. It's been a fun week off. I've done just about nothing, but it's been great. They're closing my gym, so that's annoying. I went to find a new one. There are two brand spanking new g... Read more

Soooooooooo, I spent eight years at the same place and finally left in December. In theory, it was going to be great. IT WAS NOT. It was awful. I dreaded going to work, and worst of all, I just didn't care. I've always taken pride in... Read more

Good news: 1. I finished it! 2. I jogged more than half of it. 3. I wasn't last. 4. I felt damn good about it .... once it was over. 5. I finished it! 6. I wasn't last! Not great news: 1. It was 80 degrees or so, which ... Read more

I know you're supposed to eat pretty fast (within 30-60 minutes) after a workout, but sometimes that's hard. If I've been at the gym I've got to take a shower and drive to work before I eat, and if I've been running around the neighborhood I com... Read more
+2.4 ... With Good Reason
Monday, May 16, 2011      2 comments

Through most of February/March, I was super excited about April/May because I had so much great stuff planned. I was also nervous about it because I had so much great stuff planned. Friends and travel and music and social activities generally le... Read more

Tan fat looks smaller than bright white fat. Saw a friend last night and he thought I'd lost 10 pounds on vacation. I'll take it. I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes I find that 'one size fits all' ... doesn't fit me. We went sho... Read more

1.5 = number of pounds gained After a week in Grand Cayman eating a lot (but not crazy off the charts bad), copious amounts of wine, and minimal exercise (one proper wog and some snorkeling and kayaking), I managed to gain about a pound and a ... Read more
The Stack of Pants
Thursday, April 21, 2011      7 comments

Sometimes I do something even I think is crazy, then I casually mention it and BAM, turns out everyone else does it too. Other times I think something is perfectly normal and I casually mention it and I get stared at like I have 14 heads. Win so... Read more

From my last blog: "This week my best friend is coming up for a crazy music week - we've got 5 concerts in 6 days, plus my first regular season kickball game. I'm really hoping this won't derail the progress I've made. I need to keep up wi... Read more
5K & A Good Weekend
Sunday, April 10, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday I ran my first-ever 5K. I am really proud of myself! My goal was to finish it in under 40 minutes. I still walk part of it - for this race my chosen intervals were 2.5 minutes of running then 1 minute of walking. I followed that ... Read more
Hell Yeah I'm a Runner!
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      8 comments

I'm not what you'd call naturally athletic. I preferred reading time to recess as a kid, dreaded gym class, and turned into a decidedly sedentary adult. It wasn't until I was about 25 I stepped foot in a gym, and by then 15 minutes on the ellipt... Read more
Why I Don't Trust Doctors - But May Have Finally Found A Good One
Monday, April 04, 2011      3 comments

Without getting into specifics, I just want to vent for a moment. I've had the same issues forever. Well, since I was about 11, anyway. I've been to doctors. I've explained my symptoms. I've argued that there has to be something wrong beca... Read more
