I know the holidays took a toll on my weight. My lowest weight was 187, but to be honest, that was after being sick where I probably dropped 5-7 lbs. My realistic weight through last year was between 194-197, so I will say 195 was a good mean... Read more

Since it is raining pretty hard this morning and I know I won't get out to walk on Monday or Tuesday, 1018 if my final milage total for the year. I am pretty happy with that! I'd like to say 2014 is going to show some nice percentage of a ... Read more
965 and counting
Thursday, November 21, 2013      4 comments

Todays 6 mile walk put me at 965 for the year. Once the time chages, my walking goes down because there isn't early light or late lite. I manage to get in a walk here and there on the weekdays, but mostly rely on the weekends. My ... Read more

My 6 mile walk this morning put me at 601 miles for the year. I set a goal of 1000. I still have a solid 4 months before weather might become a issue, so I feel good and feel on track. Basically 25 miles a week will get me there and I... Read more

This has been a really great year. I managed to get in 2 miles this morning even though it was 29 degrees with a wind. I was sitting on 898 miles and had to hit the 900 miles walked this year. I think I need to aim for 1000 next year. To... Read more

As some know, I am a diehard Cleveland Browns fan. I have season tickets and have been to the first 4 home games. Tomorrow will be the first home game missed, and I live almost exactly 600 miles from my home to the stadium in Cleveland. ... Read more
Rev the engines
Tuesday, February 28, 2012      4 comments

Looks like spring is pretty much here in Tennessee and it is time to rev the engines. This winter has been pretty much a down time for me. The walking is hit or miss depending on the weather, and I hurt my shoulder last Oct and haven't bee... Read more
Time to dump a vice.

For the last 9-10 years I have dipped Copenhagen. I picked it up out of the blue after being tobacco free for 20+ years. I guess it goes to show that with any addiction, be it drugs, alcohol, food, you don't beat the addiction, you simply ... Read more

Today I weight 197. Up four lbs from early November, and I feel every one of them. Time to get serious again. I suppose 4 lbs gained over the holidays isn't all that bad, but they and a few more have to go. I want to say thank-yo... Read more
The proof!

In my last blog entry I noted how it was a bit frustrating to not see the scale numbers going down, though I suspected it was because I was shifting weight around since I started lifting weights. Yesterday I had to get a new pair of jeans a... Read more

I haven't blogged in a while so it is time to make a entry. All's going well. I've bumped the walking mileage up the last month or so....nearing 40 miles a week. I don't normally walk on Fridays, but I think I will tomorrow. After to... Read more
