Better Late Than Never: July Weigh-In and Workout Progress Report

July 11, 2014

I weigh in once a month. I was in Michigan when the new month started, so this month’s weigh-in didn’t happen until I came back, on the 6th. Then, I wanted to write and publish my vacation posts (read them here and here), so that explains why this post is a little delayed. But… better late than never!

Here’s what the scale said when I stepped on it:

June Weigh-In Results AND May Workout Calendar

June 4, 2014

I was not expecting this. I went into my monthly weigh-in feeling confident that I’d be down – after all, I’d had a killer month of exercise (more on this later), and I had just completed the physically demanding San Diego TOWERthon – but when I stepped on the scale, that was not the case:

Up two pounds. My initial reaction was Read the rest of this entry »

March Weigh-In AND My Next Two Races

March 10, 2014

Yikes! I’m over a week late with my March weigh-in results! I didn’t actually weigh myself until the 4th, after getting back from Las Vegas, and I delayed this post to get all three of my Vegas posts written and published (read them here, here and here).

Let’s not delay things any longer!

Hiking Buddy AND February Weigh-In

February 5, 2014

I had a new hiking buddy a few days ago. His name is Jimi.

I got to spend the day with Jimi, and I don’t even know who his owner is. My buddy and neighbor Patrick was dogsitting for a friend of his, but Patrick had to work all day, so I took Jimi. We had a good 90-minute hike in Fryman Canyon, along the very same trail where Read the rest of this entry »


My First Weigh-In of 2014!

January 1, 2014

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a fantastic 2014. Make it the best year yet!

It’s the first of the month, which means it’s time for my monthly weigh-in. I only have a weigh-in once a month because I’ve learned the hard way that if I weight myself more frequently, I start obsessing over numbers, which leads to undue stress and bad behaviors. Conversely, if I weigh myself less frequently, I start to lose accountability, and that also leads to no good. It was a trial and error process for me to settle on my once-a-month regimen, but it’s been working for me, so I’m gonna stick to it.

By the way, I hide my scale under my bed when I’m not using it (which is most of the time) - out of sight, out of mind!

I weighed myself this morning, and here’s my weight loss chart with the results:

UP TWO POUNDS. Given that it’s been the holidays, I’m pleased that Read the rest of this entry »
