205.6 - Heading In the Right Direction


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 […]

Day 23: Really Quickly


It’s day 23, here I am on my exercise bike again, and as my mind is a mesh of a billion thoughts this morning, I don’t really have anything to write for today. But, here I am, and maybe the next 13 minutes will help me clear some things up in my head!

This is my […]

Day 22: Yea, I Know


I’m just going to quickly write that last Friday sucked, and that’s all there is to say about that.

Here it is, Day 22 of 30 days on my exercise bike, and I guess I’m sort of happy with my progress so far, even though I know it can be better (missing last Friday, for example), […]

Day 18: A Quick Note


It’s day 18, here I am on my exercise bike, I’m tired because I didn’t sleep that well, I see a crappy day ahead of me, and once again the Fitbit people are pissing me off with their delivery delays, thereby delaying me from Fitbitedness.

But the second part of that sentence is all that matters […]

Day 17: Back On Track Part II


And so yesterday was an exercise bust.

I know the excuse of another early car appointment should be the reason why I didn’t get my fifteen minutes in yesterday, but compound that with about two hours of mopping, and getting home around 8:15, and sure enough my exercise bike stood idle yesterday. Bummer.

Happily I am […]

Day 15: Back on Track


I am back on track!

So Friday was a cluster-f of a day, and no matter how I tried, I really didn’t have 15 minutes to get on my bike, short of waking at 4 in the morning, which even I’m not one to want to do. I had the 7am car servicing appointment, I had […]

Day 11: Why Do We Wake Up Grumpy?


This morning, after a series of little verbal pokes and jabs, my wife questions me as to why I am in a grumpy mood. She wonders if I slept okay, if anything is wrong, then hugs me, gives me a little kiss, and she hits the shower. It made me wonder, all morning so […]

Day 10: Cruisin' Along


I believe this blog post will be shorter as it is Day 10, I’m on my exercise bike as I type this, it’s starting out as a great morning, and other than eagerly awaiting the notification that my Fitbit is in it’s way, knowing that I should probably start tracking my food again but haven’t […]

Day 9: I Like Mornings Like This


As a life goal, this morning is how I would like all of my mornings to go. I have a meeting that sets up my “wheels rolling” time about half an hou later, so things can happen at a much more leisurely pace, and doing my daily 15 minute exercise bike ride is a no-brainer. […]

Day 8.1: I’m on the Bike!


So I just wanted to do a quick follow-up to this morning’s post that yes, here I am on my exercise bike, and two, I’m only going to do 15 minutes today and not try to catch-up for the missed days this weekend because my legs are still tired from the moving furniture fiesta of […]
