I went on my longest road trip in over a decade last week, to go to Read the rest of this entry »

Thanksgiving Rewind 2018

November 25, 2018

How was your turkey day? Mine was wonderful – lots of family, laughs, and great food. And abiding by the rules of my annual pledge helped guide me through the day without overeating or going into a food coma! I did break a couple rules, though, in minor ways, and I’ll get to that. But first, let’s talk Turkey Trot!

One of my Thanksgiving rules is to exercise before the big meal. This year, for the sixth time, I Read the rest of this entry »

Turkey Day is One Week Away! Take My Four-Step THANKSGIVING PLEDGE and Commit to Sensible Eating During The Year’s Biggest Food Holiday

November 15, 2018

One week to Thanksgiving! This is my 9th year taking my Thanksgiving Pledge, which allows me to enjoy whatever I want on Thanksgiving, without feeling terrible the next day or completely abandoning my healthy living efforts. I encourage you to take the pledge, too!

Thanksgiving is practically synonymous with overeating, but it doesn’t have to be. I work way too hard on my weight loss maintenance (160 pounds lost and kept off since 2010) to abandon it all in a turkey and gravy free-for-all.

So I created my Thanksgiving Pledge. It’s my way to get through Thanksgiving, enjoy everything I want, not feel guilty, and not open the floodgates for a month-long binge of poor choices.  Read the rest of this entry »

November 13, 2018

This month is nearly half over and I never posted my workout progress report from my weigh-in at the beginning of the month. Better late than never, right?

I did my weigh-in on the first of the month, as I always do, but that night I hopped on a jet plane and flew to Michigan for a wedding, and it slipped my mind when I returned four days later. Truth be told, I wanted to forget about it. Read the rest of this entry »


One Robbery Led to Three Workouts… Including a Long Walk to the Police Station

November 12, 2018

The tires and wheels were stolen off my car last week, while it was parked in my parking spot, in my own building. Good times!

We have security cameras, so I’ve seen the thieves in action: they Read the rest of this entry »


Fitting Into This Tuxedo Required Two Pairs of Spanx

November 6, 2018

I’ve wore a tuxedo twice in the past six weeks – a new record, considering I’ve worn a tux no more than five times in my entire life. This one had a velvet jacket!

I was a groomsman at my friend Sean’s wedding over the weekend, and those are Read the rest of this entry »
