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 […]


Why and How People are Getting Back to the Basics When it Comes to Fitness

November 25, 2010

This is a guest post by Edward. Trends come and go in the fitness world. Remember the 80’s when everyone went to high impact aerobic classes wearing their leotards and leg warmers? For the last few years, the trend has been to work out in posh fitness centers, using primarily machines like the treadmill, dumbbells […]


Sony W250 Series Walkman MP3 Player

May 8, 2010

Disclaimer: Sony sent me this product sample to review, however I am under no obligation to do so nor to make the review positive. This review reflects my personal opinion about this product. I don’t listen to music like I used to when I was younger but I have found that doing so when I’m […]


Knocking Out Some Cardio

November 11, 2008

I did something today that I am pretty proud of. It isn’t on the scale of the two mile run I did back in January, but considering where I have been lately in terms of exercising, it was pretty good. I’m back on the couch to 5k training program, starting back at week 4. Last […]


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 […]


Running Milestone Achieved

January 19, 2008

One of my 43 Things Goals is Run 1 Mile Without Stopping.  I’ve also got 2, 3 and 5 miles.  But you’ve got to start somewhere, so 1 little mile is the first goal. I’m in week 4 of the Couch to 5K program (see my cardio page for more info) which means the most […]


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 […]

More Signs of Dedication

September 25, 2007

I’ve never been great at sticking to things, and certainly not exercise.  But I’m seeing lots of signs that I am changing and staying with the program. Like yesterday, when I got up at 3:45am to lift weights for 45 minutes before I got on a plane to Chicago.  After a long day I ended […]
