New Drivers License

August 31, 2007

I’ve had a draft post queued up for awhile now regarding my new drivers license, and PastaQueen’s Looking good under fluorescent lights has prompted me to write about it.  First though, go read her story.  She has a before and after picture of her drivers licenses that are amazing. I managed to lose my drivers license […]

Jim Fixx I am Not

August 29, 2007

I finally started my cardio program this week.  Having done some jogging in the past (I even ran a 10k once) I found myself drawn to Cool Running’s Couch-to-5K Running Plan, which it seems like a lot of other folks are trying as well.  The idea is you start easy with mostly walking and some jogging and you make […]

Habits are hard to break

August 24, 2007

I’m out of town on business Thursday and Friday, my first travel since I started this journey at the start of this month.  This is actually a very light travel month for me, so I was glad to get the opportunity to try out my new found resolve. The results have been so-so.  One thing […]

How to do simple graphs in WordPress

August 22, 2007

I’ve recently added a small graph of my weight in my sidebar as well as a page for additional graphs such as BMI and strength training (total weight moved).  They aren’t the prettiest graphs to look at in my opinion (I’ve been looking at too much Office 2007 lately) but the options seemed to be […]
