Normally I work from 6am to 2:30pm... wake up at 5am, get home by 3pm, and I'm off for my after-work walk by 3:30. This has been a really work-able schedule for me. However... This week I have to work a different schedule: 8am to 5pm. I'm h... Read more

I did a ton of walking today at Six Flags, so I'm sure that I burned a ton more Calories than I've recorded in my cardio today. I'll just consider that a buffer for the thing... Read more
First cardio w/Polar F6 HRM.

I don't know why I didn't get this thing sooner! It's great, flawless, and easy to use. The strap isn't annoying. It gives me a far more consistent readout, which makes me more confident in the numbers it shows me. Today I'm off to Six Flag... Read more

Seriously. Ugh. When I saw the MioSELECT heart rate monitor on sale for $80 at Sports Authority last summer, I thought it'd be a great investment. The fact it didn't have a chest strap totally interested me, too. Now, 9 months later, I... Read more

Wednesday, April 08, 2009      4 comments

So, as I've explained in another blog post, I'm not religious at all but I do like the traditions that came with being raised Jewish. So, I went to the store and got some Matzoh, kosher wine, among other things. I made charoset (a dessert, kind ... Read more
Veggie Day 10 - Finding the balance.

I did well today, but I'm under my recommended Calories for the day. Only by 19 Calories, but I can't think of anything to eat because I'm SO full. I'm thinking of having coffee with nonfat Coffeemate which will add just shy of 30 Calories, I be... Read more

Today, sodium was totally in check. Fat? Barely. Thing is, I ate GOOD fats. With the exception of 7g of fat that came from string cheese, the fats I ate came from avocado, beans, and nuts! So should I worry? Getting vague answers in the message ... Read more

So, because I ran out of Egg Beaters and forgot to get a new carton of the stuff, I used eggs to make egg salad for dinner today. Even though I only used one yolk, it totally put me over my cholesterol (along with the 2 string cheeses I had as s... Read more

So, I didn't go out tonight as I'd hoped. Oh well. It would've been good to dance, but I'm ok with not being tempted with booze! (I've been doing a good job ignoring the vodka and rum in my freezer! Haha.) In other news, I just bought a Ben... Read more
