Happy February, everyone! I wanted to start this post with a correction. I track my workouts, and last month, in my 2020 Year-End Progress Report, I said that in order for activity to count, for me, as exercise, it needed to “be activity where the sole purpose is to get exercise.” Well, there’s an exception to that rule… shoveling snow.
(There’s actually probably more than one exception, but, for now, I’m going to focus on this one.)
There’s a very practical reason why people shovel snow – Read the rest of this entry »

This post has been delayed a few days, due to the cold that I’ve been fighting, but better late than never! (I’m feeling much better, by the way!) And I’m starting this post with a picture of my scale, because it shows a number I haven’t seen in a while.
Under 250 pounds! Whoa! Time to update my weight loss chart: Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

The new month began when I was in Arizona, so my monthly weigh-in had to be pushed from the 1st of the month to the 3rd. Here’s my Weight Loss Chart…

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 »

It’s already March? This year is flying by. Time to update the ol’ weight loss chart!
No loss, no gain. Maintenance is a win. I’ve had a great month – delivering stellar performances at two races (in Denver and Las Vegas) – and I’ll be damned if Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve settled into a routine where I only do weigh-ins once a month. If I do them more frequently, I start to obsess over the numbers and I don’t need that particular obsession in my life. If I do them less frequently, I find myself derailing off my program, due to a lack of accountability.
My weigh-ins are on the first of the month. This one is a few days delayed, because I was up north when April turned to May, but I weighed myself when I got back. Wanna see how I updated my weight loss chart? Read the rest of this entry »

It’s been a fun couple days in my world. My modem crapped out on me, but today I got a brand-spanking-new one installed. So no more delays… time for my weigh-in results! Let’s take a look at the ol’ chart, shall we?
Down three pounds! OK – here’s the deal: Read the rest of this entry »

Stay tuned for a Birthday Burpees update at the end!
Sorry for the delay, folks! Normally I do my monthly weigh-in at the first of the month, but I was in Michigan when March began, and I didn’t weigh myself until I returned home, a few days later. This post was further delayed due to my birthday and the enormous Birthday Burpees challenge that came along with it.
No more delays! I stepped on the scale last week, and it said… Read the rest of this entry »

A new month has started. Time to update my weight loss chart! I added my 5-Year Anniversary line and stepped on the scale.
I stayed the same. 247 pounds. It’s always nice to lose, but Read the rest of this entry »
