My Commitment to My Health . . . and Consequently My Treadmill

April 23, 2011

This is a guest post by Topher Lee Back in my younger days, I stayed in shape by playing sports and working out with my friends. After I got married and started a family, however, my time seemed to revolve around my children and their busy schedules. I became out of shape and frankly, overweight. […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Safe and Sound in Munich

November 29, 2007

I arrived to a chilly Munich tonight, finally settling into my hotel at about 9:30.  It is noticeably colder here than London (big shock, duh) but I was surprised to see the actual temp is only a couple of degrees below zero - it felt a lot colder than that. Having run on 3 days […]
