Another Couple of Pounds Gone!

Tweet

So weigh-in was yesterday at the Weight Watchers meeting, and low and behold I lost another couple of pounds! Woohoo!  That puts me down over five pounds so far, and I must say it feels good to say that, and I also must say it hasn’t been overly hard, but it’s a great thing that […]

A Treadmill for the Kitchen?

Tweet

Yesterday’s meal making woes didn’t propagate into today, mostly because lunch today is the same as yesterday, and I kept Milo around the kitchen so he wouldn’t keep barking at me. It still took a little too long, about 30 minutes to put everything together and get things entered into my tracking app, and the […]

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 […]

Being a Furry is a Good Workout, but I Prefer the Term Mascot

Tweet

Yesterday things were off of the chart for me, and I’m feeling it today.  Yup, my Fitbit says I hit 13,256 steps and nearly 7 miles, but the thing my Fitbit doesn’t know is that most of those steps were done hopping up and down inside of an elephant suit.  Yes, for a few hours […]

One Step at a Time.

Tweet

I had a couple of goals yesterday, on my way to getting back to healthy again, and the first was to write a blog.  Yay!  I did that one right away, so that was nice.  The other was to use my Fitbit and see how many steps it says I took in what I would […]

211.2 - Time for More Fun!

Tweet

I’ve been trying. Well, maybe not trying that hard, and I almost got to 200 pounds, but I’ve noticed that lately I’m slipping back into some old, bad habits, and with that my weight is drifting back up.  So, I’m back! I hope.

This post will be short, just to get me back into a habit […]

Day 3: How Did This Morning Get Busy?

Tweet

Well, the voting got done yesterday, and I think it was my obsessing over a few election results here in Illinois that slowed me down this morning (How about our Governor race where in the end it might have come down to abortion and gay rights?), yet here I am, about 5 minutes behind in […]

Has Anyone Seen My Gumption?

Tweet

I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately, and I know I keep posting that I’m going to get back to posting, so for this post, I’m not making any claims, just some thoughts that have been running through my head lately, in the hopes of getting back on track…

One thing, at least for […]

Tons of Excuses, but…

Tweet

So yesterday my BFF, also known as my fiance, asked me something like, “So, how’s that weight loss plan blog coming?”  And yes, I had to cop to the fact that I hadn’t posted anything in a while.  I could make a ton of excuses, like planning for our upcoming wedding (but in all honesty, […]

A Reply to My Coach: Part I

Tweet

I was trying to figure out how to post this so that it wouldn’t be too long.  The goal of this post: Reply to an e-mail I received from my DirectLife coach.  The problem is that his e-mail is pretty long, and I know my reply is going to be pretty long, so I think […]
