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 Workout Calendar and April Weigh-In

April 3, 2014

Physically speaking, March was a very successful month for me. It started with a very challenging stair race in Las Vegas, and ended with another stair race, equally challenging, in San Diego. All in all, I exercised 25 out of 31 days in March, and I know this because I log all my workouts on my calendar.

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!

I stayed even. I’ll take it. Maintaining is a win! My weight Read the rest of this entry »


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 »


December Weigh-In: My Lowest Weight in Over a Year!

December 2, 2013

Sometimes I don’t look forward to weigh-ins when they happen right after a trip, but that wasn’t the case this weekend. I got home on Saturday evening from 4 days in Colorado, but had a hunch that my weigh-in on Sunday morning would go well. And it did! Check it out!

It’s a New Week. Time to Get Back on Track! (Plus: Weigh-In Results!)

November 4, 2013

Check out what I got in the mail over the weekend – my first ever Keep It Up, David t-shirt!

I designed it myself and ordered it online – primarily because I have two big, exciting stair climb races coming up, and why not do a little self-promotion? Turns out the shirt arrived at a good time. I was in dire need to be reminded of my own motto, because last week was bad. Some things were out of my control, but I made plenty of bad choices too. I needed to get back on track, pronto. Here’s why:

Weight Loss Chart Update – SIX MONTH LOW!

October 2, 2013

Happy October! It’s the beginning of a new month, which means it’s time to update my weight loss chart. I had a hunch my weigh-in would bring good news, after all, I’ve been busting my butt preparing for last week’s stair climb race, and my eating has been good. Plus, I’ve been having weigh-ins with Mo, my trainer, on the scale at the gym, and I’ve been seeing loses on there. But I don’t use the scale at the gym to update my chart, I use my home scale. So let’s see the results, shall we?

FOUR POUND LOSS! Ba-bam! What’s even better is that Read the rest of this entry »
