Last month I took a free health risk assessment at work. I knew that I had been letting things go a bit, using the logic that I would get on it soon. I got the results yesterday and was shocked at what I seen. First off, I don’t ever think of ho... Read more

Monday, June 06, 2011      6 comments

So I picked up my wife's 17 Day Diet book the other day. Of course, I was just into it when she discovered I was reading it. After a bit of discussion, I have decided to give the first cycle a shot with her. Now, up there in the title it s... Read more

...knowing you worked out before most people are awake. Watching the sun come up while I'm working away on the elliptical is very satisfying. I felt like staying longer, but I had to get home to wake up my son. Guess I just need to start getting... Read more

I love my heart rate monitor. It keeps me accountable to myself. When I go out for a walk and think I had a good workout because 5th street hill is so tough to get up at the end, it reminds me that the rest of the walk was pretty...pedestrian. ... Read more

When I was younger I was a huge baseball fan. I would get up on a Saturday morning, stretch out and run down to the field for the day. I watched it on TV and knew the starting ... Read more

So here we go into 2011! Can I get a WOOT!? So how did 2010 go? Well...I made the jump from making wearing an XL shirt a stretch and made the move up to XXL late in 2010. Yes, I accepted it. Because nobody notices that shirt that hangs dow... Read more
Dropping 40 by 40
Saturday, July 03, 2010      2 comments

I always forget how old I am. Currently it's 39. Usually I'm reminded by a friend's birthday. If not then it is something like their kid is getting married or having a child. Until I hear that the kid is still the five year-old I last seen. Now... Read more

Monday, May 24, 2010      2 comments

This morning there was again the great debate as to what to do with myself until I had to wake my son. It was 5:30am and he likes to get up and watch some Phineus and Ferb on the DVR at 6:30. I could turn on the computer and not accomplish ... Read more

That bag of popcorn may as well been named: "Come Here Tubby!" I can't really say that no good comes from it I guess. There was some... 1. It is no longer in the house (BE GONE!) 2. Put some perspective on how damaging something like tha... Read more

Just as I get the (snow)ball rolling...hoping it will gain momentum and get real big like it is chasing Wiley E. Coyote down the hill...winter in Iowa puts a little damper on it. Finally got back in the weight room this morning and planned ... Read more
Back to the weight room
Monday, July 06, 2009      3 comments

I have really been struggling to get back into the weight room. Strange considering I used to be into bodybuilding and a Personal Trainer. Part of it is I guess being a bit ashamed as to how I have let myself go over the last 6-7 years and the... Read more

Wednesday, May 27, 2009      2 comments

Hmmm...tough one thrown at me the other day. A friend wants to do an Adventure race. Fantastic! I have been wanting to do one for a few years. Problem? It's in one month and I'm not in shape to be doing it. Sure, a month is plenty of t... Read more
