  • Day 22 of fitness plan

    It snowed last night as you can see from the picture. I ran on the treadmill today because of the snow. I got to watch a half-hour of the Karate Kid on AMC while I was at it. The odometer on the treadmill says that I went 1.75 miles. I seem to be making progress […]

  • Many homes on the web

    I was updating my media collection on Amazon today so that I can get better recommendations of new books to read, and I realized that I’ve got public profiles on a bunch of social networking sites. I thought I would try to keep better track of what they all are, and get rid of the […]

  • Day 21 of fitness plan

    Weight:forgot to weigh Exercise:It’s my day-off from running and pushups, so I just took Ollie on a 40-minute walk around the neighborhood. Yesterday’s breakfast:1 cup All-Bran Strawberry Medley cereal, Half-cup skim milk, 1 orange. (5 WW points) Yesterday’s mid-morning snack:skipped it Yesterday’s water:Two 1-liter bottles of tap water. Yesterday’s lunch:ate breakfast so late that I […]

  • Day 20 of fitness plan

    I finished redoing the second week of the hundred pushups plan. I’ll do a progress test Sunday morning to determine whether I’ve improved enough to move up to week three. I think I’ve found a way to make the pushups easier, or I could just be fooling myself. I trying adding a kind of pop […]

  • Day 19 of fitness plan

    Jake and I went to the Bridger track this morning to run. It was definitely a lot more of a workout than running on the treadmill. I was surprised by this, but I guess I shouldn’t have since running on the treadmill Sunday and Tuesday this week had seemed easy. I just had to run […]

  • Day 18 of fitness plan

    I’m on vacation today and I slept in until almost 11:00. Obviously I gained more weight. Exercise alone (especially the tiny amount I’m doing) is not going to help me lose weight. Last night for dinner I had Kung Pao Chicken from Cathay Express followed by 3 doughnuts from the Quiktrip. I didn’t even try […]

  • Day 17 of fitness plan

    I’m doing terrible with the diet end of things. I’m just eating whatever the heck I want in whatever quantities make me feel good, except for breakfast. I’m on vacation starting tomorrow, so maybe I can take the extra time to go to the grocery store and get something healthy for lunch. It might help […]

  • Day 16 of fitness plan

    We had Thanksgiving at my folks yesterday, and I stuffed myself. Somehow, the scales still show a half-pound loss. Weight: 282.0 pounds. Exercise: Week 2, Day 1 of the plan. I did 5 sets (4,6,4,4,6). Yesterday, I did the two-week progress test, and I maxed out at 12 push-ups. This is better than the […]

  • Day fifteen of fitness plan

    I had a side salad from McDonalds for lunch yesterday, but with hamburger and fries, I cancelled out the healthy. Today, we’re going over to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving dinner, so it’s not terribly likely that I’ll be eating healthy today either, so I guess I’ll try starting the healthy lunch thing on Monday. […]

  • Day fourteen of fitness plan

    Weight: 285.5 pounds. Holy crap! What happened? Actually, I know what happened. I ate out for lunch and dinner yesterday and didn’t even attempt to limit myself. I guess it’s time to take the next step. I already eat a healthy breakfast, so the next step would be to have a healthy mid-morning snack and […]
