August Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report… PLUS, a Touch of Poison Oak?

August 2, 2017

Before I indulge in my monthly nerdfest of charts and data, I have to share the aftermath of my adventurous hike a few days ago: I think I got poison oak. Just a bit.

June and July Weigh-Ins and Workout Progress Reports

July 14, 2017

This one falls in the ‘better late than never’ category. I weigh myself at the beginning of the month. This month’s weigh-in was delayed, because I was in the midwest for the first week of July, and even though I weighed myself last month, I forgot to blog about it.

April Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report – And March Too!

April 5, 2017

With that in mind, I put together three ways you can rethink or reframe your weight loss resolutions.  Read the rest of this entry »

December 4, 2016

It’s the final month of the year! There’ll be lots of updates in this post, but first, a couple photos from this weekend. On Sunday, I found myself in one of my all-time favorite places… on the roof of a skyscraper!

Only two months left in 2016? For real? For real, folks. It’ll be 2017 before you know it. Which means this is my second-to-last weigh-in for 2016, and it’s a good one. Without any further ado, my weight loss chart!

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!
