  • Day 60 of fitness plan

    Today is Jill’s 15th birthday. I took her to the license bureau this morning to get her learner’s permit, and then I let her take the wheel for the drive to school. She did pretty good. I was sick with the flu on Monday and Tuesday so I skipped my workout both days. The neuropathy […]

  • Day 57 of fitness plan

    I love my treadmill. I got to watch a half-hour of the movie S.W.A.T. on FX while running two miles. A good action movie really takes your mind off the fact that your tired and your legs hurt. Weight:285.0 pounds Exercise:Week 7 Day 1 of the couch-to-5k plan.

    I had to go back to work yesterday so I didn’t make the time to do my push-ups, so today I ran and did my push-ups. I’ve been doing this for 8 weeks now and I’m definitely seeing some progress. It’s just awfully slow. Today I ran 2 miles without stopping. I definitely couldn’t have […]

  • 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 […]
