Sometimes You Can Use a Little Push

Tweet

And so it has been a long time since I posted, and pretty much my weight has been stuck around this plateau (I was close to busting out, but a bought with Ankle OCD is my excuse from breaking 200), and there are tons of things to talk about that have hit me over the […]

This One Got Away From Me

Tweet

I’m not really sure what happened, but as it’s already Friday, and I’m looking back on a week that has gotten away from me, both food-wise and in exercising. I mean, the food side hasn’t been horrible, but I’ve probably had too many cookies and not enough fruit, but in the exercise front, it finally […]

Probably Shouldn't Have Gone for the Super Corn Dog

Tweet

So I stepped on the scale this morning and it wasn’t great.  I walked a lot, did some actual labor, and felt fairly good, but I know the downfall this past Labor Day weekend was my diet.  Friday – not bad.  Saturday – Well, drinking the giant, small chocolate shake didn’t help.  Sunday – A […]

Up Until the Milkshake

Tweet

A quick post today, but my wife and I decided to split a hot dog and fries (not too bad), and we decided to get a milkshake, too. The milkshake was huge, and my wife bailed early, but there it was, in the car cup holder, and every time I grabbed for it my wife […]

Here Comes a Weekend

Tweet

And so Labor Day Weekend is coming, it’s a really hot Friday and that’s limiting my lunchtime walk, but it might be good as I have a feeling I’m going to need to rest up for a day of manual labor on Sunday.  It’s supposed to be cool, there might be mopping, fence repair, and […]

205.6 - Heading In the Right Direction

Tweet

So last month I set a goal – to be below 200 pounds by the end of August.  What it meant was a ten+ pound loss in weight – ambitious yet doable by most standards.  As the last full week of August came, and I was in the 206’s, I pretty much knew that unless […]

Up With the Sun

Tweet

With it being so hot here in the Chicago area lately, our dog, Milo, hasn’t been getting out as regularly as he should. And neither have I.  I mean, last week I did average 8,169 steps, or at least my Fitbit tells me so, but the only reason that really happened was because my wife […]

Are We Allowed a Bad Day?

Tweet

I knew it wouldn’t be a good one, and I did my best not to pay that much attention as part of A) Seeing what happens when I don’t pay attention and B) I didn’t want to feel that guilty about it until this morning, but yesterday was a bad day, at least in terms […]

I Need Some Sleep!

Tweet

Yesterday I managed to get to 8,088 steps, beating my goal of 7,500 each day this week, and I have a feeling I’m going to have to borrow a few of those steps in the next few days as I’m running out of meaningless errands at a grocery store or hardware store (nothing like wandering […]

I Did It! 7,603!

Tweet

It wasn’t easy, and my wife thought I was nuts when I started walking aimlessly around the house, but as I was 700 steps shy of 7,500 yesterday, I couldn’t end the day on a down note, so there I was, walking into the kitchen, back into the living room, up the stairs, and then […]
