real bike vs. stationary
Sunday, May 15, 2011      0 comments

My adult son has a Mongoose bike he never really rode, but treated semi-roughly when he did. I took it over, bought new inner tubes, a great fat seat, a kick stand, an air pump, and a basket. I'm not thrilled with the bike, but I can't afford a ... Read more

I have so much to say, to spill, but to sit here and write is not getting me dressed and to the gym. I'd like to expound more on: pushing myself, not giving up, real bike vs. stationary, taking my health for granted, feeling like a weak-willed p... Read more

That was me totally blowing off tracking food today...and honestly I think it would have been a good day to. I'll write down what I ate, and maybe log it next time around...mostly home made veggie soup...crackers...hmm, that may be about it- whi... Read more

Not in the mood. Hungry. Stuff to do. No motivation. Got gym clothes laid out. Socks and shoes ready. Music available. Will charge the blamed thing tonight. (charges off the laptop, the cord is in my way when I am working) Going to go look at... Read more

Waiting on the kid to get ready so I can drop his gf off at her friends house before I go to the gym. This is one of those days where it would be easier to say "gee, it's awful late in the day, I should just go earlier tomorrow and work harder" ... Read more

I don't feel as if this is starting again, I feel like this is a reminder- track your food. Write it down. Stay involved. Drink more water. All these things are so important for success, almost as important as the exercise. I want my health. I w... Read more
Motivation or a kick in the pants?
Sunday, August 29, 2010      1 comments

So, I have been trying to figure out a way to balance things, not "work too hard" so I am not exhausted, and so I can deal with the things I need to in addition to the things I want to. Really, though, I only have to work, work out, shower, slee... Read more

So, up only two hours- barely- and I have a headache...and my stomach actually just now growled! Sitting here thinking about what to eat, it occurred to me a smoothie would be exactly the right thing...more later...... Read more
"Rigorous Honesty"
Saturday, July 24, 2010      0 comments

This phrase keeps going through my mind. In this particular case I am going to write down every bit of food, every thing. Even if it's crap that I eat. That's really the first thing I need to commit to, in addition to the exercise I will get bac... Read more

Progress in the way I think, at least...had a prison visit, and instead of using "vending machines, what choice do I have?" as an excuse, I had trail mix on the way there, and back, and didn't even buy myself anything out of the machine except a... Read more

Last time I checked I was just below 400 lbs., gained back all I lost, and apparently plus a few, eh? So, I'll find my way back to the gym, sit my ass on a bike, and pedal. Log my food. Midnight to midnight,since my work/sleep is backwards. So, ... Read more

"A" is for "accountability"!
Saturday, January 16, 2010      0 comments

So here I am with nothing real to say. Not doing as well with calories as I could/should be. But I'm documenting them! That's the first step for me. Write it down. Be aware. Eat breakfast! This works. It builds upon itself, and grows in a positi... Read more
