The importance of down time
Monday, March 24, 2008      5 comments

I finally got some real down time over the long weekend. It seems like I have had so little “free time” since the beginning of the year. I did okay for most of it – staying mostly on track with fitness, nutrition and logging. But not having t... Read more
Back on Track but needing down time
Tuesday, March 04, 2008      4 comments

I've over done things a bit and maybe set my goals a bit higher than I should have. But, I'm learning. I plan to do a mini-Triathlon on May 4. I probably rushed things a bit with my training plan for this week. This morning I was really drag... Read more
Total Meltdown

The past week or so my eating and exercise plan have been in the toilet. I have not done any exercise except for farm work since last Wednesday. And I’ve been eating more and more everyday. My food choices have gotten progressively worse. I ... Read more

Well, I don't know the percentages - but I do remember reading somewhere that those who write down their resolutions have a much higher success rate. So, I'm wondering if I get an extra punch by writing them down and publishing them here. ... Read more

What didn't I do this weekend? Friday night a work friend was in from WI and he came over for dinner and a movie with us. Saturday morning Emy had a lesson so Denise and I dropped her off and went to Home Depot for pipe to run a water suppl... Read more
What prompted me to look at my weight and health
Tuesday, December 04, 2007      4 comments

It's kind of a long story but here goes. I was always pretty active and loved to exercise. I never had a real weight issue until I got pregnant with my now 14 year old. I gained weight pretty fast. When she was about 3 I started exercising ... Read more
Time to get back on track
Monday, November 05, 2007      3 comments

It was not a good weekend for eating - following a tough week. But, I'm on the road this week which often makes it easier for me to be on track. Right now I'm still pretty sleepy. I usually take Dramamine when I'm traveling. The plan is t... Read more
I'm so hungry.....

I've been having a tough time this week. So far I've stayed pretty near my calorie limits, but I'm making terrible choices. And, I feel like all I want to do is eat. Could be lack of sleep - I don't know. But, I hate when I get this way. I... Read more

Juliette Gordon Low was my hero back when I was a kid. And, I still have a great admiration for her. Back in the deep, dark distant past where I grew up discrimination against girls and women was very acceptable. There were few opportuniti... Read more

Last night I got the best night's sleep I've had in longer than I care to remember. Could have been one of a number of things that went well yesterday. After work I went to a new place to run. My chiropractor said that I need to build my r... Read more

It's been quite a summer. I've been working on a lot of lifestyle changes in addition to the obvious eating and exercise. I started attending Buddhist meditation services weekly and meditating daily on my own. Thanks to Sparkpeople, I'm readi... Read more
Summer Fun

It's been a roller coaster summer. On again off again with the eating and exercise plan. I got in a lot of bike riding in July and had big plans for August. But, that hasn't been all I hoped for. My goal is to do a Triathlon Sprint next Augu... Read more

Well with all the travel I've been doing I'm at least sticking to a program enough to maintain my weight. I haven't lost anything further for three weeks, but I haven't gained either so I guess that's something. I'm trying to mix up my strengt... Read more
