Don’t Skip the Cardio

December 18, 2007

It’s been about 5 weeks since I have used the treadmill.  Since that time I did get three 3 miles run in, but other than that - no cardio.  As you may remember (or maybe not since it has been so long since I have done any!) I am basing my cardio workout on the […]


I Calibrated My Treadmill

October 12, 2007

I mentioned before that my heart rate was occasionally exceeding my maximum heart rate during my cardio workouts.  Now that I have purchased a proper heart rate monitor and have calibrated my treadmill I am confident that never happened, and even if it did it won’t happen again because I am not running as fast […]

As I wrote yesterday in I’m Still Fat But I’m Already a New Me I did a great job this week on my business trip, actually exercising in a hotel “fitness center.”  In addition to what I wrote in that post about not working out while I travel I should also point out that I haven’t […]


I’m Still Fat But I’m Already a New Me

September 19, 2007

I’ve been referring to my weight loss program as a journey to a new me.  I expect the journey to take two years although that is only the start - it needs to be for the rest of my life. I’m down 14 pounds in the first month and a half or so of my […]


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 […]
