October Weigh-In and Workout Progress Report and SIX FLAGS!

October 9, 2016

My recent race and trip to New York made for exciting blog posts, but it also delayed my monthly weigh-in update. And I’m going to delay it a few paragraphs longer, so I can share a couple photos from Six Flags!


The first post on the blog, in 2010, was about going to Six Flags Magic Mountain. It was my first time at a theme park in about a decade, ever since Read the rest of this entry »

September Weigh-In and Workout Progress Report

September 1, 2016

Before I start with the scale, charts, data and all that, here’s how I’ve been spending 30-minute chunks of time, two or three times a day:


I mentioned at the end of my last post that my foot was starting to bother me, and what I really should’ve said was that it was bothering me a whole lot. It’s painful all the time and it hurts to Read the rest of this entry »

For the First Time in 9 Weeks: Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report!

June Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report

June 4, 2016

I weighed myself a couple days ago, as I like to do when a new month arrives, and I’m pretty much the same weight I’ve been for the past few months (since two pounds isn’t a huge deal in the grand scheme of things).

April Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report

April 4, 2016

Seems like punishment to weigh myself on a day known for pranks and practical jokes, but I established my own weigh-in calendar, and weighing myself on the first of every month, including April 1st, is part of the deal. And this is no joke: I’m up two pounds.


I’ve been pretty good lately about not getting bummed at weight gains. I have a lot to be proud of, and I’ve accomplished so much, but this one stung a little bit, if only because  Read the rest of this entry »

March 4, 2016

It’s already March? This year is flying by. Time to update the ol’ weight loss chart!
