I Competed in 18 Races in 2017. A Brief Look Back Before I Start Looking Forward.

January 8, 2018

I published my 2017 Year-End Progress Report a week ago, but it occurred to me the other day that something was missing. It covers my weight loss and maintenance, my workout progress report, and my cardio miles, but there was no mention of my races. And I raced a lot. 

Time to remedy the situation! In the future, Read the rest of this entry »

My 2017 Year-End Progress Report

January 2, 2018

I look forward to this post all year! You know I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report every month. But when a new year starts, I put together a report that encompasses the whole prior year. I find it very interesting and hugely motivating, so let’s get to it!

First, my weight loss chart. I did my first-of-the-month weigh-in, and I’m up two pounds. Read the rest of this entry »


2016 Year-End Progress Report AND the Debut of My Brand New Weight Loss Chart!!

January 4, 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the post I look forward to all year long. Every month I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report. But at the end of the year (or, actually, the start of the year, since this is January 4th) I take a step back, and instead of focusing on one month, I focus on the whole goddamn year. 

And, in order to do that, I’m going to need an assist from…My brand new weight loss chart!

This chart has been desperately needed for a few months, ever since I Read the rest of this entry »


2015 Year-End Progress Report

January 5, 2016

Time for one of my favorite posts of the year! (And it’s only January 5th!) You all know that every month I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report. Well, once a year, I take a look at the bigger picture and do a Year-End Progress Report! This will be the fifth year that I’ve crunched the numbers, and I’m excited to see what they say.

First up, though, my weigh-in results from January 1st. For that, let’s turn to my trusty weight loss chart:

Down one pound! After two weigh-ins at 257 pounds, I was happy to Read the rest of this entry »


2014 Year-End Progress Report

January 12, 2015

We’re already almost half a month into 2015 (can you believe it?), but I need to do one big, final reflection on 2014. I’ve already shared my January weigh-in, but I never published my December Workout Progress Report. That’s because I’m rolling it onto a much bigger update: my 2014 Year-End Progress Report!

Breaking news! I’m a big nerd. One of my nerdier endeavors is to Read the rest of this entry »


2013 Year-End Progress Report

January 16, 2014

Time to close the books on 2013! Because I’m a big nerd, I log all my workouts in my calendar. I notate how long I exercised and what I did. This easily allows me to keep track of how many workouts I’ve done in a given week, and reminds me of which workout (weights or cardio) I’m due to complete next. Every day that I exercise gets a dot on the calendar. Here’s my December ’13 calendar, which I accidentally photo-bombed with my own toes:

All in all, I worked out 22 times during the 31 days of December, including Read the rest of this entry »
