No, seriously – LEGO DINOSAURS

I mentioned at last Friday’s weigh-in that we had a plan to visit Legoland Florida over the weekend – and visit Legoland we did.  The tickets are pretty expensive (and don’t include parking!), so we found that it made sense to buy season passes.  All we have to do is go one more time and they […]

Weigh-In – 9-25-2015

Good morning and a happy Friday!  This week was the week that my wife started her own workout regimen … which means that dinners at home are an awful lot easier to fit into a point budget.  She’s still very sore, but two of us doing this is going to make it a lot easier. […]

Saddle Up

It doesn’t get easier, you just go faster.                                         – Greg LeMond  I went out for my 3-miler this morning, and immediately felt crappy.  My legs didn’t feel like they were waking up, and there was a […]

Precious Resources

I used to think that my most precious resource was energy.  If I could just get and keep my energy up – my energy to focus, to remain upbeat, to work hard – I could accomplish anything.  That energy seemed to be in shorter and shorter supply (especially as I gained weight), and I treated […]

Weigh In – 9/11/2015

Weight:  307.6 lbs Weekly Loss:  (-3.2) lbs Total Loss:  (-15.4) lbs Weekly Average: […]

Just like I drew it up…

Yesterday morning – Labor Day, holiday, good excuse to sleep in day – I actually roll when the alarm goes off at 5am.  I had a three-miler scheduled, and I was ready to knock it out. But then I struggled.  I fiddle-farted around, used the bathroom, checked my email, just generally took my sweet time. […]

Photo-op Saturday

Got up this morning to go for a scheduled 4 mile run, but I was having some gastro issues and lets just say that I was nervous to be 2 miles from the house this morning after having run to get there and move on. Instead, because I was up and had a rare free […]

Weigh In – 9/4/2015

Good morning and a happy Friday to everybody!  Long weekend coming up, college football is up and running (and if the Razorbacks don’t beat UTEP by 40 points or more then I’ll be disappointed), and the weight, it is coming off. Current Weight:  310.8 pounds Weekly Loss:  (-2.2) pounds Total Loss:  (-12.2) pounds Weekly Average: […]

August

It hit me this morning that September has started (I know – I’m a day late – getting older sucks), and that means a look at August is in order. This was my first full month back in the saddle, and it went well, all things considered. Because of travel (and a few confidence issues) […]
