  • Day 51 of fitness plan

    Just enjoying my vacation. I did push-ups today, and I put away the Christmas decorations, but not much else happened. Weight:?? pounds Exercise:Week 3 Day 1 (again) of the plan. 5 sets (10,12,7,7,8) Yesterday’s water:Two 20-ounce bottles of tap water. Yesterday’s WW points:heck, I don’t know

  • Day 50 of fitness plan

    Since I didn’t run at all last week, I decided to repeat week 6 of the running plan instead of just starting at week 7 where I left off. I did this mostly because I had trouble finishing the last day of week 6 the first time. I think we’re just about out of Christmas […]

  • Day 49 of fitness plan

    I took the dog for a 40-minute walk today as is becoming my Saturday habit. I take lots of pictures with my phone while we’re out, so I decided to start a Flickr set to contain the least crappy ones. The set is called “Seen While Walking the Dog” Weight:285.0 pounds Exercise:Day off from running […]

  • Day 48 of fitness plan

    Christmas is over, so it’s time to get back to exercising and eating right. I haven’t run at all this week, so I’m just going to start again on Monday where I left off. I only skipped one day of push-ups, but I’m going to repeat week 3 again next week because I still couldn’t […]

  • Day 44 of fitness plan

    I skipped blogging for a couple of days. On Saturday, I took Ollie for a one-hour walk in the woods for exercise. On Sunday, I should have been running, but I took the day off. Now, I’m going to be doing my running on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and I’ll do the dog-walking on Sundays. […]

  • Day 41 of fitness plan

    I still can’t finish any of the workouts in week 3 of the push-up plan, so it looks like I’ll be repeating it next week. It might be easier if I weighed less, so maybe I should try a little harder to stick to my diet. Weight:281.5 pounds Exercise:Week 3 Day 3 of the […]

  • Day 40 of fitness plan

    I was supposed to do a 5-minute warm-up walk today followed by a 25-minute run, but I had to slow down and walk several times. I’m guessing maybe that the problem is that I waited until I got home from work today to go running, and I’m just tired from climbing the stairs at work […]

  • Day 39 of fitness plan

    I fell off the diet wagon again yesterday. I really thought the hardest part of this fitness plan would be the running, but that’s the easiest. The dieting is the hardest part. Weight:282.0 pounds Exercise:Week 3 Day 2 of the plan. 5 sets(10,12,8,7,1) Yesterday’s water:One 20-ounce bottles of tap water. Yesterday’s WW points:??

  • Day 38 of fitness plan

    I did my running workout today. I managed a couple of miles in 28 minutes. The treadmill in the garage is cold but it’s better than running outdoors in the snow. Weight:285.0 pounds Exercise:Week 6 Day 2 of the couch-to-5k plan Yesterday’s water:Two 20-ounce bottles of tap water. Yesterday’s WW points:37 (37 food points – […]

  • Day 37 of fitness plan

    I’m repeating week 3 of the push-up plan. I almost made it all the way through today’s workout, but my triceps gave in during the fifth set. Birthday weekend is over, so I’m getting back on my diet today. Weight:285.0 pounds Exercise:Week 3 Day 1 of the 5 sets(11,12,7,7,3) Yesterday’s water:One 20-ounce bottles of […]
