A Warrior Weekend...
Monday, May 07, 2018      4 comments

One of the things that sparked me up again a month ago, was knowing that right around the corner would be a weekend-long dodgeball tournament that I was entering with my regular team. Games were played starting on Friday, and ended on Sunday. It... Read more
A Few Bumpy Months...

Nothing too crazy to report really. Things were going smoothly into the start of December, and then the holiday craziness reared its head. Workouts were skipped, and habits were broken, but my eating stayed fairly on point through to the end of ... Read more
Cruisin' Along...

I've been actively watching my calories and exercising three times a week for about two and a half months now, and am down 11 pounds from my rough starting weight of 208. I've probably lost about 15 pounds of fat though in that time, with a few ... Read more
The Question...
Tuesday, August 15, 2017      1 comments

Over the past four weeks, as I became acutely aware that I had somehow slipped back into caring more about losing weight vs. snacking, drinking, and being lazy, I've begun to ask myself a defining question at every fork in the road. Every time I... Read more

In January of 2015, I wrote a blog called "The Rust..." www.sparkpeople.com/mypa

Two Months In...
Thursday, June 23, 2016      9 comments

It's been a very odd month in terms of my self-perception and self-confidence. On one hand, I'm down to 199 pounds, fitting into clothes again, and cruising along pretty nicely with my eating and exercise. So you'd think I'd be feeling really gr... Read more
One Month In...
Monday, May 16, 2016      6 comments

It's funny. I thought a monthly summary would be simple to write out, but for some reason I seem stuck on trying to kick my post off with some articulate opening thought, and as a result I just can't get the wheels moving... so... [insert here s... Read more

Raise your hand if you've ever felt like you're just going through the motions, painfully sad inside, waiting for the defining moment to arrive... that catalyst moment, when everything about your health journey comes into glorious focus, and you... Read more
Tales From the Crypt...
Thursday, May 21, 2015      10 comments

A fitting title, since my healthy lifestyle has all but been dead these past many months. I feel like I'm finally on an upswing though, which makes posting here a little more alluring to my soul. There's something so strange about being in the d... Read more
The Great Regression...

For all my wordiness, and my deep and insightful ability to detail the inner conversations I have with myself, my description for the past three months of my health journey could only be summed up with a simplistic: "blahhhhhhhhhhhh". :D I smile... Read more
The Rust...
Friday, January 23, 2015      7 comments

November rolled into town with a relaxing sigh, and initially showed promise for more of the same consistency I'd shown in my weight loss journey up until then. It was an unremarkable month, nothing vastly out of the ordinary, and yet something ... Read more
Rundown Town...
Tuesday, October 14, 2014      6 comments

No, not run downtown. I'll be doing that again next year at the Yonge Street 10k mind you. No, rundown town. Amazing the difference that sentence can make depending on where you place the space. :D I'm feeling exhausted today, and most days this... Read more

First off, for those whom I cherish on this site, and those who've been like family the past year and a half, I'm sorry I've been MIA. It's not been due to shame of being off track or anything, not at all, I just find myself in a new season of m... Read more
A Moment...
Monday, July 21, 2014      12 comments

Today has been pretty much like any other day... and yet for some reason in the last hour I've found myself having quite the moment. It's as if my journey this past year has suddenly caught up with me, and I'm pretty emotional all of sudden. I c... Read more
Adventures in Camping (part two)...
Friday, July 18, 2014      4 comments

When I was a kid, I loved going to the beach. I've so many pictures in my parents' old photo albums of me playing in the sand and goofing around in the water. A strange thing happens though as we remove ourselves further and further from the day... Read more
