Time For a New Treadmill?

November 28, 2010

Lately I have been thinking about getting a new piece of exercise equipment to start off 2011 - either a replacement treadmill for the one I already have or a new elliptical, something I have used only a few times in a hotel gym. To help me make a decision between the two (or maybe [...]


Did Something New Yesterday

June 17, 2009

I did a couple of things yesterday at work that I rarely do individually, and probably have never done together. I packed a lunch and took a walk at work over the lunch hour. Monday night was my birthday and I made dinner of T-Bone steak (I had the 4oz fillet part), grilled asparagus, chopped [...]


An Hour on the Treadmill

January 3, 2009

One of the things I know I have to do to be successful with losing weight this year is to put more time on the treadmill. But it’s so darn boring! Workout music helps, but if you are going to run for at least an hour like I want to start doing, then you need [...]


Motivated by Music

November 14, 2008

Well so much for NaBloPoMo! My best intentions of posting every day this month went up in flames on Wednesday, then I had a decided lack of motivation yesterday after knowing that I won’t be hitting what I had hoped was a simple goal - writing every day this month. I also have not run [...]


The Sweet Smell of Wet, Stinky Gym Clothes

November 5, 2008

photo credit: Blondie5000 So far I feel pretty good about the first week of my Kick Ass November. I’m not documenting what I eat every day, darn it, but I am watching it and I’ve been pretty good. Where I am definitely excelling is in getting back on my exercise plan. So far this week [...]


Trying for 100 Pushups

July 1, 2008

Like many of my fellow fatbloggers I’ve signed up for the One Hundred Pushups Challenge. The correspsonding program is a progressive training program designed to slowly, over a period of at least 6 weeks, get you from sloth to stud. At least that’s the idea. Yesterday I did the initial test which simply calls for [...]


Swimming for Health

June 25, 2008

I don’t believe I have mentioned it before, but we have an in-ground pool. We put it in 4 years ago or so and if you don’t try to calculate the per-swim cost it’s been great. The idea behind getting the pool was that the kids and their friends would tend to congregate at our [...]


Arms of Jello

May 5, 2008

I lifted weights this morning for the first time in almost two months and for only the second time since February 12th. Forcing myself to get up at 4:00am to workout wasn’t easy, but it is a habit I just have to get back into - I don’t have the luxury of being able to [...]


Are You Cheating The Runner in You?

April 19, 2008

I took a walk this morning with our new puppy Maddie (I’ll have to write up a post about her later, she’s a real cutie!), an approximate 4 mile loop to a local lake and back, with on occasional jog here and there. I probably only jogged about a half mile out of the four [...]
