My scale...unfortuntely, it's no April Fool's joke
Monday, April 01, 2013      16 comments

So today I was hoping the scale was pulling some kind of April Fool's joke on me. Alas, I don't believe that's the case. I weigh 208.2 pounds, the same weight I saw on March 1st. ... Read more

Thanks for all the comments on yesterday's blog. I know it's not my usual kind of post, but what I saw on Tuesday really stuck in my brain and I had to get it out. Today we are back to the regularly scheduled programming. One thing I am gra... Read more

So yesterday I volunteered at my local food bank. I knew the pastor that ran the food bank and found out he desperately needed help. I have never worked at a food bank before, so this was a new experience for me. There were two sides in the... Read more

Ugh, can't sleep. On my day "off" of all days! I thought I would just get up and go ahead and go swim, but the roads are pretty nasty this morning and they are having a lot of problems in Nashville. Since I'm in a rural area, I figured I better ... Read more

I ended up taking a break this weekend from training. I was extremely sore on Friday. Saturday I was still pretty sore in my abs. Plus B got back early from his business trip so I didn't have time to squeeze in a workout before I drove up to vis... Read more

So I didn't take a rest day yesterday. I didn't make it in for my morning ST routine. I did, however, get it done after work, along with some bike intervals. Not only did I do the workout, I upped the weights and difficulty to challenge my... Read more

So one of the things I have ventured into is serious strength training. I've been using weight machines for the past few months, and while I saw some strength gains in my lats, legs, and using the back extension machine, I wasn't really getting ... Read more

Life smacks me and I just keep going
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      19 comments

It's not exactly been the best week so far. I had a pretty big blow yesterday when something I was hoping for (and I could not have been more qualified for) fell through. It would've made my life a lot easier for the next few years. I could have... Read more

Thanks to some fantastic temps this weekend, B and I managed to get in our first hike of the year. We took on our "training" hike, which is a nearby state park that has about 3.5 - 4 miles of trail and about another mile of paved walking paths. ... Read more

I don't deal with stress well. I do have generalized anxiety disorder but can usually manage it without medication. But these last few weeks I've been pretty wired. Students loans have come due and they are as bad as I expected. I'm trying to co... Read more

I usually go to my parents' house once a week to eat dinner and catch up on the latest episode of Justified (best show EVAH!!). It does make tracking a bit difficult, though, because while they do watch sodium, they don't watch much else in thei... Read more

Friday, March 01, 2013      7 comments

So remember a few posts ago I was lamenting about the scale? I got back on it this morning after a 2-3 week hiatus. I've gained 1.4 pounds. Not terrible, but not the direction I was going for. I also measured myself this morning and found I've g... Read more
