Wanted to run before work, but didn't get there in time, so I had to figure out a way to do it later. Worked all day, home for dinner, took my son to hockey practice early so that we could run before. He's 7, has much more endurance than me, a... Read more

I haven't completely given up, but I haven't been as dedicated as I wish I had been. I've started working out with my Wii. My wife got me a program called EA Sports Active 2 for Christmas. It has a band that you put on your arm, and ano... Read more

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men will sometimes go awry. I didn't get up in time to work out this morning, but I DID make myself some eggs and toast for breakfast. In the future, though, I think I will make just the egg whites, as the... Read more

My spark friend Joyce wrote and excellent blog post about goal setting today. I won't re-type every word of my response here, but suffice to say that I need to set some goals for myself. In regard to needing to eat more properly, I had 2 b... Read more

Got up early enough to walk to work today, almost exactly one mile. Will probably walk home, too, but might get a ride from someone. Tired and sore today. More tired than sore, but still a wee bit sore. Tracking food, making better food ... Read more

Got up very early this morning, got in a 30 minute walk/run. Ate breakfast, which is something new for me. Tracked food all day, made good food choices (at least better than I have been making recently). It feels good to have begun.... Read more

Well, in case you hadn't noticed, I haven't been around for a while. I had an injury, and was misdiagnosed by the ER doc. Took some meds I didn't really need. Nothing major, thank goodness. Followed up with my own doc, and he diagn... Read more
